    I've tried a couple of games and maybe it's just bad luck, but it's a real pain. I'm lagging alot.
    I suppose I should wait for the 1.03 patch to come out and hopefully that'll help me. Short of getting dsl or cable, that's about my only option. I can't afford either dsl or cable. They are outragously expensive here, since it just got to my area. Hopefully when we move in the spring we can get it.
    I'm gonna keep trying online games, but my hopes aren't too high. That patch will hopefully help.

    TCP/IP games have been noticably better for me, even when I'm using a modem.

    I agree that a patch should be produced to help the multiplayer performance though. Either that or a major upgrade of the B.net servers.

    Hey Jedsia,

    Maybe you'll have to break down and play with us on your PEECEE until you get that multiprocessor G4...

    My Pc is even slower, not that I'd play it online if I could. It's just a mule.. And I can't afford a G4 for a long time. My job doesn't pay THAT much. And as much as I love computers, my kids come first [​IMG]

    How much is a cable modem down where you live??? Up here it is only $40 a month.

    My old interent (Modem) access was $20 a month, and tied up the phone line to boot!

    Unfortunately I don't think it's the modem, but the computer. I play on a modem and have no problems, but I got a G4 recently...

    It's like $60 a month, plus installation and cost of cable modem.
    It's not worth it for us, we'll be moving nect April, so why bother go through all that. When we move we plan on getting cable or DSl. As for my computer, I have a good computer, I think D2 just doesn't like my G3 card. hopefully the patch will help when it comes out.
    Maybe I can talk my dad into buying me an Imac DV for X-mas, since he works for the school system he gets a discount. For right now, I just need to work with what I've got. [​IMG] or maybe my husband will get a nice raise.

    mine is $40 with free installation.

    sometimes there are free installation deals when you sign up.
