I'm having a big issue with Counter-Strike Source. I figured since this is the "counter-Strike" lag thread I'd post here
Mine doesn't spike, necessarly, it starts off at a normal 150 - 170, then goes up from there... (150...280...350....650...726....890...960.....) pritty much in a matter of a few seconds starting from the time I enter the server, then stays over 900+ making it impossible to play.
I get about 25-40 choke, but it goes up and down.. not steady at all. After a few second, I see about a frame every 5 seconds.. then the choke is from 1-10.. but still bounces around. Depending on the server, the ping will be from 1000 to 1700.
I have DSL 256k, which isn't the best, but its much better then Dial-up. Under these circumstances I should be hitting around 150-180, and have hit that before on a regular basis.
I cannot find a pattern for it, meaning, it either works (low ping), or it doesn't. When I have high ping, the server I'm in doesn't matter, I try as many as I can, with bots, without... still no avail. I've tried turning everything off except steam and CS:S. I've turned off every computer on the network, connected straight to the modem, turned off fire walls....::exhales:: ...still nothing.
Well.. thats everything I can think of right now. Any ideas?
