My new DSL connection works great for normal web surfing. However, any time
I launch Unreal Tournament or Quake3 via Gamespy, my 4060 USB modem
immediately loses synch.
If I don't use Gamespy and I launch UT directly it again loses synch as soon
as the opening flyby screen begins to play and my DSL connection terminates.
UT also gives me an error message - Critical Error, General Protection
Fault, and UT terminates. The strange thing is that the only way I can get
past the flyby screen without an error is in safe mode. (UT otherwise works
fine if my DSL connection is inactive). What gives?
With Quake3 I can at least launch the game and check internet servers. Yet,
as soon as I try to connect, I lose synch and the connection terminates.
Changing the rate to 25000 seems to have helped because once or twice I have
been successful in connecting. Yet, the majority of times the games just
stalls, and then I lose synch.
