hello i am the friend harry is talking about, and i would like to add more detail into the problem he is talking about.

i have access to the internet via wireless router which i am recieveing the signals from the downstairs computer which is connected to the internet directly through a high speed cable modem.

the problem is when i host games in "starcraft: brood war" which is online, it will say "Latency of host is too high" then you will get kicked if you try to join to game.

i have no clue what latency is and why my wireless connection has high latency because my downstairs pc with a direct connection never has this problem.

so if anyone can lead me into the right direction i am listening because right no i have no clue as to what to do..

thanks in advance :tazz:
