Hello Whiz Kids,

I recently was connected to broadband (512 with AAPT). My son is also connected via our own 2 computer network). We hava a DLink modem and a LinkSys switch (not a router) and are connected via ethernet. Every thing is fine except for 1 problem.

When playin the game StarCraft on line (with either computer) it is only possible to play 1v1 games without lag. Any other type of play is impossible due to lag. Also, when I create a game, others cannot join because it says latency is too high. So far other online game play has no problem. This was not a problem when we used dial up.

I have been onto the Blizzard people (Starcraft makers) and have followed all their advice(e.g. opening certain ports) I have been onto my ISP and configured modem a number of times. All to no avail. This one problem persists.

I have spoken to a number of other people with the same problem with broadband. They are with different ISPs and use different hardware. One person suggested that the broadband speed is too high for the dial up servers of starcraft but there are plenty of people playing on broadband and cable without any problem.

I am at a loss where to look next for a solution. Any suggestions or advice would be most appreciated.

Hopefully

Constantine

Dear Acklan.

You will have to explain to me how I can tell what mode im in. I am using windows XP.

Also I used Net Diagnostics in system information and here is what it showed concerning network adaptors:
