A friend of mine plays it frequently through his linksys "share yer cable
modem" box thing and has no such issues.
On the other hand, I don't believe that that box does any kind of
firewalling, merely pure NAT.
Now I was hopeing that someone would be able to point me in the right
direction based on previous experience. If not previous experience, perhaps
try and find out where the bottleneck lies.
