I am just a tiny bit unsure if the thank you
with the exclamation mark !
is a genuine thank you, or more a thank you for making the problem worse.
If it is the latter, may I point out to you, that procedures to solve a problem may take more than one step and some steps may not be successful. You should always have the latest driver when attempting to solve this sort of problem
From where did you obtain the driver - please re-read my notes on my last post.

I see this message when I'm playing: 'WARNING: CL_FlushEntityPacket' Answer
If you are getting CL_FlushEntityPacket Warnings this typically means that either:
- Your internet connection or the server's internet connection is having problems.
- Your connection is overloaded, for example running a peer-to-peer filesharing application in the background.
- There are other computers on your local network using your internet connection.
- The server you are on has its network connection overloaded.
- You are running on a wireless connection with a poor or inconsistent signal.
- You are connected to the internet using a dial-up or other low-speed connection.
- You have your rate or cl_updaterate or cl_cmdrate settings too fast for your internet connection.
You can help to identify and eliminate the source of your problem by:
- Shut down all unnecessary programs on your computer before playing.
- Disconnect all other computers in your household to see if they are causing the problem
- If you are running on a wireless network, try connecting using a direct ethernet cable and see if the problem goes away. You will probably have to disable the "Wireless Zero Configuration" service while you are playing as well.
- Safe rates for dial-up connections are typically around 3500-5000, while broadband connections should be able to safely run 30000 or better. You set this in your game console (~ typically) by entering: rate <value>
- The default cl_updaterate is 20, setting the value to a higher number increases the download demand on your connection. Set this in your console: cl_updaterate 20
- The default cl_cmdrate is 30, setting the cale to a higher number increases the upload demand on your internet connection. Set this in your console: cl_cmdrate 30
HOWEVER if the connection is performing poorly in ALL rather than just in Counter Strike, then you need to look further at the various settings for the connection and the wireless adaptor.and also clean up your browsing history, cookies, temporary files etc .
