internet cable connection slow down
Posted on 2004-08-11
hi all, i'm back again, i have a new problem this time, and need your combined expertise, here goes nothin:
i have a broadband cable connetion, 750kbps, and have no problem with download speeds or anything like that, however, i play halo on the xbox online, and have played it through my connection for 8 months or so without any problems, (xbox plugs into my pc and i use xbconnect),
but recently, (last week or 2) i have been unable to get a lag free game, whether joining some1 elses host, or hosting my own game, i cant seem to figure out what is causing the lag, have scanned for viruses, spyware, have upto date antivirus and firewall, and winXP is also upto date. my modems activity light is constantly on, however it has been like this since i got it, so dont think its any thing to do with that, could it however be someone scanning my ip, or something along those lines, because i cant think what the problem could be.
aslo, does anyone know of any programs that will let me see/monitor what programs are using what bandwidth, this may help solve my problem.
i am going to try running xbox connect and halo again later, but i will plug my modem into another computer i have, thats just basically, a fresh install of xp on it, with a firewall running. will see if this solves it, and post bak results once i have tried it.
if anyone needs more infomation about anything to help me fix this, just ask and i will happily post it if it can help you help me.
thnx in advance.
