Alot of those poker online sites experience server overload, due to extremely high usage. If you were playing for "play" money, pacificpoker.com isn't to bad of a site.

He's right. Free online game sites experience an overload very easily. I wouldn't worry too much if I were you. :tazz:

Wow. It could simply be a temporary internal error. Try again in a few days.

If you think the problem maybe a piece of malware on your machine Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and post your log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

It sounds to me like this poker site said you were dropping packets. First off are you having problems with any other sites? If so then this might be an issue, if not then they were just feeding you a bunch of bull.

If you are having problems with other sites and you want to determine if you are dropping packets please go to start>run> type in the word command and hit enter. You will then have a black dos prompt. You now need to type in ping -t www.yahoo.com and hit enter. Let this run for a good 3 or 4 minutes then hit cntrl+c this will stop the tes. You will see results for packets sent x recieved x lost x. If you are on highspeed and are dropping any packstes then you need to contact your ISP back and let them know this. If you are on dial up then it is more common to drop some packets but not alot.

I agree though it does sound like the site you are playing on is experiencing overload.
