BYOND Build Number: 458.1050
Operating System: Vista 32bit
Video/Graphics Card: Radeon Go 7600
Game Hub/Link: All games.
Internet Connection Type: Cable, 7.5down, 0.5up capped.
Firewalls/Routers: Linksys Wireless router, WRT54G2
In all BYOND games I try to play, I have lag spikes quite often, which doesn't allow me to move, speak, etc. for up to 1 minute on occasions. It also sometimes logs me out. This doesn't occur in other games at all, only BYOND games.
Howwweverrrr, what gets me is, I can see what everyone else is doing, but I appear to be frozen.
In an attempt to combat the problem, I did all the updates, assigned a port to my pager and forwarded it on my router, and forwarded the ports of the games I play. No change.
I only just moved house, and I'm pretty sure I didn't experience these problems at my old place on this computer.
When downloading the BYOND client through BYOND.com during one of these spikes, the speed was at about 30KB/s. I got my friend to attempt the download at the same time, and he got about 700KB/s. I usually get at least 500KB/s from every other website.
My only guess is that somehow the route between my computer and BYOND's servers is *bad*? I dunno. If anyone could help me solve this problem, it'd be muchly appreciated.
*P.S*. I've tried directly connecting my computer to the modem, instead of the router.
Steps to Reproduce Problem:
I join a game and wait.
