I do not know whether anybody else has been experiencing this, but I have recently been experiecing severely high pings and, along with them, bad lag in almost all of the public servers (clan or not) that I have entered. The numbers often soar all the way up into the 900's, then come down and go all over the place in the hundreds.

I have been kicked now from more than one server by the console for having too high of a ping, and let me state clearly now that I am not a cheater and have no special commands typed into the console. It is quite frusterating, because I used to be able to pull off skillful headshots by aiming in the correct place, as anybody else would. If anybody has any advice, suggestions, solutions or explanations for this, it would be most appreciated.

Thanks much.

I've had strange fluctuations in ping before too, it's strange. Is this problem just with Counter Strike, or is it your connection in general with both Internet and other online games?

Having played mostly Counter-Strike over the last several days (at the exclusion of other games), it seems to be only that. However, I have noticed, now and then, that my internet speed itself slows down nearly to the point where it will just cease to connect altogether...but that only happens in occassional intervals.

Yeah, I get that too. CSS gets a bit dodgy sometimes.

But then again, it normally happens to a couple of people aswell in the same server.

Lately I have been experiencing lag so bad on ALL public servers that it has rendered CS pretty much unplayable on my comp. Fucking ridiculous. Try though, turning all your graphics settings down all the way. Also, there are some commands that can increase your update rate to the server, and vice versa. That may be your problem. I think theres something in this last update, because more and more I hear people complain about these types of issues, and some people have even bought better comps, only to have it still not work. Valve screwed the pooch on that one I think. Shit. Well, anyway, Im going to mess around with some performance commands (erasing bulletholes, dead bodies dissappear, etc.), and see if that takes care of my own lag problems. Ill let you know what happens.
