    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.

    I can get fairly far into the games. Several minutes into a good chess game for example.

    Thanks for your time. Beware of me in the game rooms! I'm the guy who will go unresponsive after 5 minutes.

    A couple of things:

    When was the last time you defraged?
    When was the last time you did a registry clean?
    What browser are you using and when was the last time you cleared cookies and the temp file?
    And how full is your hard drive?

    Defraged about a month ago.

    Registry clean? Hmmm......about to go do that.

    Them cookies and temps I keep empty!

    Hard drive is sitting around 1/2 maybe 60 out of 120 gigs used.

    The experiment I'm currently running is changing my router from a dynamic IP address to a static one.....
