What is wrong with my router settings on my computer? On both my hardwired desktop and my wireless lap top I can play on disk games for hours but lord forbid I try to play a game of chess or literati on yahoo games. This happens on other "over the web" Axis & Allies games also and I'm talking the simple ones, not even Warcraft 3. Also when I watch Netflix movies I probably get 1 interruption to change my connection speed. To remove that interruption I need to use the refresh option. Its not much an annoyance but maybe a clue. I am still running: XP Service Pack 2 P4 2.70GHZ 2.25GB RAM If it helps with what advice to give me, my experience level is moderate. At the small business I work for I install the RAM or drive upgrades in the PC's. I haven't reinstalled windows ever which might be a sign I know how not to mess something up.
