My computer is a screwed up PC, but WC used to work pretty smoothly, i used to use SBC Yahoo DSL! and could host games fine, for some unknown reason my sister switched it to Comcast Cable, which i was fine with because DSL does have several problems. I thought Comcast would be perfect, the first day it was installed, WCIII:TFT worked fine, the next day it works fine until i hosted a game with friends, and suddenly everyone is lagging out crazy.
We test it a few times, and it was definitely me who was lagging. Ever since then (for the past week or 2) i've been lagging ONLY for WCIII:TFT USWEST, i tried the other servers, the same lag. My bandwidth ranges from 300 - 800 mbps, my regular internet works fine, such as yahoo.com, google.com etc etc blah blah
I tested on some online games, strictly through Internet Explorer, and those simple online games also lag, ranging from 300 - 1200 ms AVERAGE when pinging
i tried a TRACERT to the server, and i got 30+ hops with about 40% Timed Out, and the rest from as low as 25 to as high as 900 ms.
I called Comcast, they pinged my modem etc, said it was fine, sent a technician, technician was baffled (although i think he was not qualified to help)
Some of the nerdier friends i have? Baffled (one suggested a virus)
I Alt+Tabbed as in one of the other posts, but my computer usage % is only at 5-20 % max
I have NO clue whats going on =/
