  1. Hey guys,

    One of the people I play soldier of fortune 2 with is experiencing lag, he's posted on another forum, but just thought I'd check here... The following are extracts from this forum post:

    Other troubleshooting done:
    unplugged all phones
    ping router (no loss of packets)
    new cat5 cables
    other computer
    fresh install

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    korrupt

    Do you have a firewall somewhere? Or, do you have a gay ISP like mine, who prioritizes traffic?

    Uhm, I don't think it cn be a firewall - the problems only occur when there is a large amount of "Actvitity" happening (ie: 5 people shooting in close range) - at that stage the frames per second drop so I'm assuming that causes the lag.

    Calling now to check if ISP prioritise traffic.

    Any more ideas (thanks)?

    Regards,
