Hey all, I just went out and bought a new 10/100 Linksys Etherfast PCI Adapter card for my PC (becuase my old card was getting a SUPER slow FTP transfer rate of 500 kb/s). I put it in and it had a pretty good FTP transfer rate of about 6 mb/s on average. The problem is when I connect to XBConnect, I get VERY VERY bad lag time! I mean about three full seconds of pure lag! Even my old card (literally old, I found it in my garage) didn't have that much lag! XBConnect says my average ping is around 700 ms! My Question is, What am I doing wrong? Did I buy the wrong kind of network card? If I did what is the right kind? Here are my specs. -Ten Foot Connector Cable for PC to Xbox hookup -PC Network Card (brand is described above) with cable running straight from PC to XBox -Separate Network Card with cable running straight to Router for Broadband Internet Connection -Xecuter 4977 Bios -Pheonix Bios Loader through Audio Exploit Thanks for all the help!
