View Full Version : Gaming Woes

I just put a network on my comps. I am into playing World of Warcraft but since I've put in a new ADSL modem one of my computers disconnects from the game frequently. :yuck: The internet stays up and works fine. I just can't play the game. The other 2 computers on the network can play the game without any problems.

My main computer, the one having the problems, uses a USB cable and the others are using ethernet. The type of modem we have is the Zoom ADSL X5 model 5654. All the comps are using Windows XP. Does anyone have any suggestions on what could possibly be the problem?

Get rid of the the USB cable (if this is what you're using to network the PC with the prob), and connect it with an ethernet cable as well.

Or is the USB cable going to the ADSL modem??

The ethernet doesn't work on the main computer. And it has had an USB on it before we got the new modem. the USB connects from the modem to the computer.
