umm, dont use your cable ^^

try contacting your cable provider...

i dont see how someone with cable can lagg at starcraft, i mean, its not like the graphics are good, and its not that big of a file...and it doesnt take that much not to lagg, i used to play on my 56K, and i could join almost any game i wanted to....

i never had a problem with lagg, sometimes it was a little bad, but it was never something i couldnt handle

I'm on 56k because Cable/DSL isn't availible where I live. I don't lag at all, and my bars are only at 2, my ping is like 219. Soemone with Cable should have 1 bar, and like a 39 ping.. :)

Also, Download..

- AVG Anti-Virus: This'll scan for viruses that are harming your computer, some of which hurt upstream/downstream speeds.

-Ad-Aware: Make sure you copy this one just as it is here, It's Ad-Aware, Not Ad-Ware. This is the best tool I've found to check for Spyware & hidden files..

Both of these have a Totally free version.

I used to use Ad-Aware.... but I found that it doesn't find alot of spyware that I know I had.

Try finding: Spybot - Search and Destroy
