I have a linksys wrt54gs router i have been playing games with this router for 2 or 3 months now, all of the sudden i connect fine to a server but when im actually in the game i get connection problem flashing on Call of Duty, and i tried battlefield vietnam, after the game loads and once im in the game my cable modem cycles through its lights gain. but when i leave the game the cycle speeds up and all of them turn back on and i can surf the net like normal.
i started trouble shooting it myself, i uninstalled COD and installed it again and it didnt work, i logged onto the router and renewed my DHCP, it started to work. i go into a server started playing for a bit and punkbuster says i have invalid characters, (everyone on the server has different colors and symbols/letters/number etc. in their names) so i update PB and now its back to square one again with it not working when i connect to a server.
ive narrowed it down to the router or punkbuster. any ideas? thanks for the help.
