    Ok, first off im running on AOL 9.0 (yeah i know its dial-up, im switching to cable in a week).

    I've noticed since yesterday, i was tristing and i relized that i was lagging constintly(1-2 seconds no lag to 1-2 seconds lag)

    so i pulled up /fps

    my ping is shooting from 297-1969

    0 Skip

    74-75 fps

    my video is directdraw



    i've defragged my computer, virus checked, cleared all internet stuff(history, pass's, ect).

    and it still lags like crazy

    It could be due to the recent jump in D2 sales. I have it to from time to time. Dunno if there is a fix to it besides telling people to stop playing :O

    i havnt experienced lag like that in a LONG Time

    granted, D2 DOES lag, im not saying it doesnt, but sounds like you got it -bad-, even when i was on AOL a few years ago it wasnt that bad

    what speed do you connect at? should be hitting at LEAST 44kbps (thats what i use to reach)

    I HATE lag. I simply hate when that happens. That's why I'm not playing Diablo 2 lately
