I just got a new computer with comcast high-speed internet. It's a top notch computer could handle EVERY game on the list over at the "can your computer run it?" website, but i seem to have a faulty connection when playing Counter Strike Source. I can play Day of Defeat Source for hours without any problems UNLESS someone else goes on my other computer and tries to play day of defeat source. So if i play day of defeat source i'm fine but when someone else goes on it like crashes both of our computer's connections and we have to restart the router. For counter strike source it only takes 1 person. So i open css and i can play for maybe 20 minutes MAX...then i automatically lose connection. Also, when i open up the server listings in counter strike source, if i let it load to the max, it like overloads and i lose connection which makes me think this whole problem has something to dow ith connection overload.
Why i think it has to do with overload....; in css, if i wait for the listings to max out i lose connection and in day of defeat source it seems as if it doesn't overload until 2 people are playing..
ALSO one last bit...rarely (maybe once a week or so) i'll lose connection while surfing the net or downloading dozens of files. When i lose connection my router's lights start flashing and i have to restart the computer to re-gain connection.
The computer that fails (mainly, although the other ones do too) is connected wirelessly via a little usb wireless G thing..
Edit: And one last thing...i turned on and off dmz (demilitarized zone or w/e) and it didn't make a difference.
