Yes read that and a few others. There are a lot of people with problems but no solutions (atleast for the prob I have)

I have eliminated my router and cables as problems. Also the internet connection is not the problem. I ran the Nettest and did a trace on both my pcs I have above. And the nettest shows the problem on the desktop. Heres the results

Idle NIC bandwidth Send: 0 KB/sec Recv: 0 KB/sec


As yall can see on the trace (and i don't have any rubberbanding in the game) I don't have a lag problem. But on the bandwidth I am way below what is excepted by criptic to be useable (250 KB/sec). So thats my problem. I have put this pc in the DMZ so it isn't the firewall. And since my netbook is reporting good numbers (Not as good as some of the other guys posting Nettest results) it has to be something set in the desktop settings. But for the life of me i can't find what to change. I have upgraded all drivers and have used a few resources i have found to optimise my connection ( I am getting nearly 6mb sec through speedtest). And normal internet use is good on this machine. DLs are fast and the web is quick. Its just whatever the game uses for loading be it cache or whatever and whatever the nettest is checking on those ports.

Thanks. BTW when we find a solution I am not the only person with this problem, but appearently they have lumped it in with the rubberbanding issue witch is a entirely different problem.
