Re: laggy game play

If your planning on playing games online, best bet is go for broadband. as dial up modem is no use for playing games, no matter which 56k dial up modem you have. John :-)

Ds lite wi fi connect wpa

Try changing your WiFi encription to WEP or no security, this should be available on your cablemodem/router web internface (need a user and password for that) under the Wireless/Security option.

DS Lite is not compatible with any other WiFi encription for online gaming: "Important note about the Nintendo DSi and WPA security: While the Nintendo DSi is compatible with WPA security, Nintendo DS games with online play still require the use of WEP or no security to connect with the Nintendo WFC. Therefore, your connection settings for using these games must be set up on slots 1-3.

Modem is very slow please speedup this modem cdma2000 usb

Assuming this is a "phone modem"..

Simple, throw the modem in the trash and get a high speed connection (DSL, Cable, Wireless, or Satellite if you have too) .
In that order, although Cable usually has more bandwidth (download faster), but IMHO you tend to get better latency (best for Games) from DSL
Not trying to be sarcastic, I'm sure 99% of FixYa reads will agree this is the best solution.

But I know some places far from a major city/town, etc., a phone modem is the only choice.

Phone modems are a loaded issue.
How good your modem connection is is going to depend on your phone connection (is the wiring/lines old?), how good your ISP is (what kind of modems they use at the other end, and how they maintain them).
You should contact your ISP to find out.

One issue is determined where you live.
If you are in the USA then 56k is the standard, but you can only connect at slightly less (around 54k max).
You modem must be rated for that.
I.E. If your phone modem is rated for 28k then you will only be able to connect at 28k max.

Also you should go to your ISP website to get your local access numbers that fit your area code and prefix.
Then just to be on the safe side, call your phone operator (dial '0') and go over this list to make 100% sure these access numbers are local.
If you end up accidentally using any number that is not local (even one of those "zone" numbers) you can end up with a $500 phone bill.

Now armed with your list of local access numbers, experiment by setting your modem to use a different one each time you connect.
Try to connect a few times each to see how good it gets.
It is likely you will connect at a faster speed at one number then another.

Internet issues i have a seemingly similar problem. when playing a multiplayer network game, i can go only about 1 minute or two before i get disconnected from the server. seems like i'm losing packets...

Sounds like your exceed your bandwidth when you play online. Like you said you having packet loss cause you are not transmitting and receiving all the info due to your connection. And if you play more than one, two, or three pc at one time then you just cut your bandwidth severely. I recommend you check on your upload speed. If you have 128k up and playing multiple pc it will bottleneck.

Go do a speed test-- post back your results

I keep losing my connection plus it downloads super slow

I have the same problem. I have narrowed the problem down to having too many simultaneous connections.I can surf all day long with no problem but when I start downloaded via a torrent or if I play an online game in a room with 32 players, my connection eventually grinds to a halt. No amount of tech visits to your house will ever uncover the problem because your line speeds and voltages will appear normal. Swapping out the modem for another of the same kind won't fix the problem because the issues appears to be inherent in the modem. When downloading torrents you'll have to limit the number of connections your computer will accept.

Ps3 online playing

Check you internet connection (example try to surf the net on the ps3, if you can then simply the madden servers are down)

Servers for games do go down every now and then for maintenance, it's not uncommon at all.

Two questions one about Internet Connection and the other about Windows Update

Dear sir, Please disable automatic updates in your windows settings, it will slow your connection speed. I have seen that your connection speed is slow, i.e. updates are not possible online.
