First of all let me say that the devs have done an excellent job with STO. I have been playing this game since open beta and I LOVE PLAYING STO. But for almost 2 months I have had a serious problem with LAG. I can log in just fine and fly around in sector space just fine but when I get into any mission the game starts lagging. It is so bad the game is becomes unplayable. Now when I say unplayable I mean how can you play a game that when you enter a mission it runs fine for about 2min's then lags for 45sec's to a minute then clears up for 2-3min's then lags again,keeping this process up till I get mad and log or I fight through it till the end then log. The worst days are Sunday through thursday,which is most of the week.At first I just thought it was my router but today I had my router moved to right next to my desktop and plugged directly to it.
I STILL HAVE LAG making me believe now it isnt on my end.
I am running Windows 7 with a NVIDEA Geforce GT 120 all drivers updated.

I had a severe lag issue last night. I went to the site, and found I was only getting 1/10th the speed I was supposed to get out of my ISP. I rebooted my cable modem and router, and said "Oh, that's much better" (It was at full speed again ). Who knows? You may have a lingering internet issue that requires a modem/router reboot to clear the errors in your signal.
It might just be your fps dropping real bad not exactly sure but u can download msi afterburner to check fps and gpu usage also you can type in /showfps 1 in game and see fps oh and just in case you dont know if your see fps in the 20s or lower that probably is your problem 30 and up you should be fine
ok offhand looking at your tracert and nettests I would thing yur internet connection loos good, but are are using a wireless and it still could be the router . some models have problems withthe burts of small packets the game use and the number of connections
and the game is pick on wireless connections
what model is your router.
it also could be an intermitt connection drop as both vista and win7 will do network scan every 60 seconds that can cause lag and disonnect on some routers
Thanks for the reply everybody,let me first say that on Monday my router was moved next to my desktop and is now my desktop is hooked directly to the router,no antenna anymore. In the past when I would get a little lag I would reset my router and it would clear it up but that doesnt help anymore which is why I had Verizon move it and hook it directly.
Zanchi thanks for the advice but knew that already lol.
Flato: Didnt know that so I will keep an eye on it and try to check it while playing.
PegasusMD: With it hooked directly now am I still concidered wireless? I never had this huge a problem before with the game lagging so much I dont think my running system is causing it or I would have had trouble right at launch.
Now keep in mind Im not that computer savvy so these are only my opinions so if im wrong plz tell me.
Oh and service from Verizon Fios
Router model# MI424-WR
Okay so I did what Flato suggested and entered /showfps in game. WOW!!! when playing it says anywhere from 9-13 and when lagging its 1.5. Is this me?? How could it be me?? I have probably the best internet provider in Verizon Fios directly hooked to the computer. If it is me plz help me resolove this issue.
