When I'm wolfing I keep getting "connection interupted" every 5 minutes or so. I just got a new p.c. with XP service pack 2 installed and I had already heard alot of bad things about it. Is that the problem? Any help would be much appreciated, thank you for your time.

SP2 works fine. We need those specs...

Are you using "Fast user Switching" by any chance? If so, you shouldn't while you are playing. You should have everyone else log out or you will get HORRIBLE performance. If say another user left a internet window open that had some sort of game going in it, you would DEFINATELY get the lost connection method. Just having some one else logged in with no program running can cause horrible client side lag...

OK, here is what I have them set at now.....

Seta Rate 35000 and CL_maxpackets 70.. Since I have changed it to that I'm not getting "connection interrupted anymore" but I still get the lag.

Are there any other settings I can try to tweak?

Please help, thanks...
