Hello all. I have wireless currently at my house for my computer with a family computer directly connected into the modem. We are supposed to have 1mb DSL from TDS Metrocom. With casual surfing and downloading there is no noticeable lag what so ever but when I start playing a game (namely Counterstrike 1.6) I get random choppiness and skipping. The funny thing is my ping never raises what-so-ever. My computer is a Dell E510 with a 3.0ghz processor, 2 gigs of ram, and a Geforce 7600 GT video card. It seems as if the game holds on for a second and won't let me forward and then comes back. This happens every 10 seconds or so and really throws off my game. I have been trying everything I can think of and no tech has been able to help me. I am using an Actiontec modem and a Dell adapter. Any sort of help would be awesome. Thanks Bleeping.

is the gaming computer wireless?
if so, can you plug it in your router to see if that makes a difference? that will give us a more shaped idea where else to look.

Yeah the gaming computer is wireless and I don't have an option to use a wire. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Maabsta, I play a bit of CS from time to time , what you can do is first when you launch a game go into the game options and put a tick next to console. Know you go back into your game bring up the console which is the ~ button and type in to the console net_graph 3 then you will get FPS, ping, packet loss ect.ect while playing a game. So now you can see where the trouble might lay.

Yeah, I've done ping tests. I'm getting the speed I'm supposed to but I still chop in games. This is why I'm convinced its wireless. In CS I always have net_graph 3 up and rarely get any loss or choke or anything. It is just a skip in the game. It's pretty constant. My ping doesn't even go up when it happens. It is the weirdest thing and I can't seem to find a solution
