Ok we can more than likely rule out the Hurricane I use my other computer (that is my wifes computer) and played CS and had no issues what-so-ever, my Ping ranged from 20-30 I think I am just gonna do a fresh install.

My problem is that when I play CS: Source :ar15fire:my ping hits as high as 200, but when I first start I am @44 then after I purchase my weapons the ping quickly climbs up to 90, 100, 150, 175 and even 200. I have tried turning off my Antivirus and firewall and nothing I still get major Lag. I have Kaspersky 5.0 AV and KASP Anti-hacker firewall. I have power cycled my Belkin54g router and my RCA modem. Still crap lag. I am use to hitn 40-60 lag. My mediacom speed is 256/5. Can any one plz help. I get the same lag when connected directly through the modem via cat5 cable.
  5. thats funny I have never had to do this when I had AVG or Norton. Also, I never said KAV was perfect just that it took care of and even found some viruses and threats that the others did not. Funny how surfin (porn) is a sure way to get a virus.
  6. I am using Kaspersky Anti-Hacker it seems ok.
  7. Cholla, Yea AVG was free and it checked up daily and downloaded daily updates It worked really good for a while, and I really liked how it didnt take up many system resources even while scanning system for viruses. Although, all of the sudden my new notebook had infections it could not deal with even in safe mode. If this didnt happen I would still have AVG. I was at some questionable websites and this was probably how I got the viruses. Most people dont do this on the internet and therefore seldom have any serious issues with viruses. I had the BETA version of Kaspersky and was really turned off but 5.0 and anti-hacker 1.8 are truly awsome get'm both for $49.99 at kaspersky.com This program is a bit less resource hungry than Norton and more powerful than any other Antivirus program out there. I just ran a scan test from sygate on my ports to test my anti-hacker firewall and I am all safe and secure "so says the test"
  8. In past threads I have said that Norton was a good antivirus program then in other threads I said that AVG was even better. Well, today AVG said I had 8 viruses but it could'nt deal with them??? So I uninstalled AVG and Installed Kaspersky not only did it remove or fix those 8 viruses but it also found an additional 10 other viruses and threats and dealt with them all Kaspersky uses more resources than does AVG but I'd rather be secure than infected with viruses.
  9. ok I didnt mean to confuse you but it is really not that difficult you wont screw up your PC here are som shots that may help you out
  10. VPN is probably not what I am wanting considering I just have home network with around 3-8 pc's and I wont be doing any remote access to any of them.
  11. find out who manufactured ur NIC Card and what model it is. Then go to control panel - perfomance and maintenance - system - click the hardware tab - and click the device manager. click the + sign on the network adapters and then the driver tab then uninstall driver. Make sure you have already down loaded your new driver first cuz you will lose ur internet untill you install the new driver. Also check your cable connections on the router, and do a firmware update on the router also. you should see something about that on the router set up web page your owners manual will tell you how to do that. by the way kamikaze3e welcome to the forum.
  12. Oh yea what a world of a diffierence a fresh install does nomore Dell crap and the notebook is like twice as fast almost 100mb of mem freed up
  13. Would a VPN firewall be a good security solution? What is a VPN firewall what does it do how does it compare to say sygate or zonealarm? I found these on newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?Submit=Go&DEPA=0&type=&description=vpn+firewall&Category=0&minPrice=&maxPrice=&Go.x=0&Go.y=0 what is the best way to have solid security without having to run a firewall on my PC's for no more than $125 or is setting up a linux box firewall just as good or what? ELITE PETE I have a belkin54g router it has a firewall but I think it is rather rudimentary.
  14. on the top of the page are links to Download test and Upload test. I think that is what you are asking.
  15. Also do you use a router that may be an issue
  16. Try installing the newest driver for your NIC Card besure to unistall your old one first after you download your new one of course
  17. I know the IT guys at work have not installed SP2 because of similar reasons. Although I have it and have not seen any set backs
  18. Way to go Cholla hopefully other people do as much follow up on bad sellers thus helping make EBAY a safer place to buy. That poster Rocks. By chance do you own that model Winchester Rifle That poster would be so cool placed right over the rifle showcased on a wall. Does winchester still manufacture those old lever action replicas. I saw a program on tv on the old winchester rifles they are uber valuable and reliable and beautiful rifles.
  19. I have an old P4 1.3 with 512mb of rambus 800 collecting dust. I have heard that you could install linux on a PC and use that PC as a Firewall. Is this possible to use this box like this: cable modem to Linux box with firewall to router to PC's? Any one know anything about this? any instructions on doing this would be greatly appreciated. Would I have to install two NIC cards one going in and one out is that possible? Is this like a makeshift server?
  20. kamil thanks a lot for the link I am a huge AoE fan and am currently Dloadn it 20 min eta. I am sure that this game will rock!
  21. Well I figured this one out on my own. You can not have non Microsoft Firewalls running when you run the networking wizard. I now have my printer and files shared on my peresonal home network.
  22. I have my notebook connected to a wireless Belkin54g router and a desktop connected via cat5 cable from the router I can see my desktop PC but can not access it. how do I get to share files? I made both PC's under Apartment:Workgroup. And they are both running XP pro and well the notebook is MCE 2005

    Xbox 360

    The Xbox 360 is going to rock it's OS has to be based on windows cus you can link up to PC's with WIN XP MCE 2005 and down stream anything from your PC to its HDD and then play it on your HDTV ROCK'N! I have a Kickass PC and BATTLEFIELD 2 still is gittery. This is where consoles are great, when you buy a game 99.6% of the time the developers spend more time perfecting games released for consoles than they do for PC cuz they can resolve the issues with a patch but what happens when patches still dont resolve issues or when your new $3600 gaming PC does'nt play games as smoothly any more? or your particular ATI or NVIDIA gpu has drawbacks with specific games this is too common for PC's I still love playing CS:S and AoE and cant wait for AoE III But, you never have to worry about that with consoles. just throw in the media Cartridge, cd, mini dvd, DVD, whatever and start playing. unless your gonna game online then always make sure your updated with Xbox Live on all Maps and stuff. These new Consoles are going to equal to the top PC Games right at first gen and even better at 2nd gen certainly PC's will pass the consoles up but Gaming consoles are it. All three companies are going to release great systems well certainly Xbox 360 and PS3 will have great games. But Xbox 360 already has the great XBOX Live and it will be even better with 360. It is to bad this thread got filled with a bunch of HATERS. as afar as things with Sony go Dont be surprised if they launch an product that hardly resembles what theyve been promoting after all hype is what SONY majors in, and they are famous for being just that "Hype". Remember what SONY promised PS2 would be and what it actually became BIG difference none the less it will still be a great console.
