Windows xp pro + cs + 56k = monstor lag


OSNN Addict
when i switched to xp months ago i realised i got lots more lag on cs than i did in 98 or ME and then when i built my new comp and put xp on it, it has seemed to have got worse.
can anyone help plz???
and i dont want an dicks saying " get adsl or isdn " because i cant afford it!


yea but in your older post you said u were gettin faster connection........

shall i say the simple solution again?:)
go back to 98:)

i m assuming u tweaked out your cs configs......tweaked out it must be either 56k or the lag monster XP...u decide

yes i did, but they contract hasent come for it so i'll have to put up with 56k for a lil longer and i have tweaked and its improved and yes im buy a secondary drive so i can put win98 on it because its not just cs i have problems with.


Doesn't it take up something silly like 25% of your bandwidth, and on a 56k connection that's bound to be a problem! I've turned it off, but in the end i have 1MB cable!

Clarification about QoS in End Computers That Are Running Windows XP
As in Windows 2000, programs can leverage QoS through the QoS application programming interfaces (APIs) in Windows XP. One hundred percent of the network bandwidth is available to be shared by all programs unless a program specifically requests priority bandwidth. This "reserved" bandwidth is still available to other programs unless the requesting program is sending data. By default, programs can reserve up to an aggregate bandwidth of 20 percent of the underlying link speed on each interface on an end computer. If the program that reserved the bandwidth is not sending enough data to utilize it completely, the unused portion of the reserved bandwidth is available for other data flows on the same host.

For more information about the QoS packet scheduler, refer to Windows XP Help. Additional information about Windows 2000 QoS is available in the Windows 2000 technical library.

Correcting Some Incorrect Claims About Windows XP QoS Support
There have been claims in various published technical articles and newsgroup postings that Windows XP always reserves 20 percent of the available bandwidth for QoS. These claims are incorrect. The information in the "Clarification about QoS in End Computers That Are Running Windows XP" section of this article correctly describes the behavior of Windows XP systems.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
