I just moved into a new apartment and discovered that et is now uplayable because of lag spikes. everything was working great at my old place with an AT&T dsl connection (computer connected wirelessly through the ATT modem/router), now i'm using a time warner cable modem and connecting through a cisco wireless router. i'm using windows 7.
screenshots are in this album:
the connection works great for everything else. I can stream several videos at once, download large files without issue, stream video and music while my roommate is also streaming video and music, all with no lag or problems. the problems only start when i try to play et. I get severe lag spikes and packet loss every few seconds. once or twice it has stabilized enough to play for an hour or so, but i usually give up after 10-15 minutes of solid yellow/green/red spikes and complete connection loss.
the only thing that has changed is my internet connection. is there something i can try changing in the router settings? anything i should try changing in et? the very last thing i want to do is call my isp, since it's in my roommate's name that is going to be a hassle and all they ever tell you to do is reset everything, which i've already tried several times.
any ideas would be much appreciated, it's a total bummer not being able to play.
