Latency Problems

Wark

I keep having problems with lag, I've seen other threads that have similar problems, but I'm not sure what's causing mine.

I reformatted and installed Windows SP1 a few weeks ago, and I have almost no programs on my computer.

I have a 1.2Ghz Proc, 1GB RAM, and a 5.6 Megabit/second connection.

I was using a router, and forwarded ports 6112-6119, and then I tried a direct modem to computer connection, and got the same results.

Players keep dropping out whenever I host games. I haven't changed much in my hardware since the last year, still have the same proc, and upgraded RAM, but I never had this problem before.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'm well aware, but it's my brothers, so the CD-Key didn't get validated in the Microsoft Genuine Product test.

>>1.2Ghz Proc

I have 2.8ghz and I still get a lil lag, but that could be bc my ISP.

1.2 is rather low, I would suggest a new pc.
 
Well, while 1.2GHz is rather low, it also somewhat depends on which processor model he has. Which brings me to...yes you saw it coming...which model do you have Wark?

Also, do you lag in Single Player or just Multiplayer?
