    Hi,
    Im having problems when im playing counter strike on steam.
    Im suffering lag and im not sure why. I have a 576k connection on broadband and i have played medal of honor allied assault and that works fine so it must be something to do with the lag. I am new to play online game so i have little experience on these matters. Could someone please tell me what is wrong and advise me on the best course of action.

    Thanks
    Martin

    Are you running a firewall?

    Steam requires that you open a few ports on your router or you will get performance issues.....

    It is quite annoying but once you sorted it out it runs like a dream!

    Depends on your router/firewall, if you look at the manual for the router it will tell you how to open ports.

    If you still have probs list what router you have and we can have a look.
