Hey guys,

Any ideas what would cause the lag/stuttering in TF2 that is associated with the below gaps in my netgraph?

I have to restart my computer or Logoff/Logon again in order to fix this. This usually happens after my computer has been on for a while (overnight).

Seguer on

    Do you run any torrent clients? Either while playing or otherwise?

    I do, but I've tried closing it (and this doesn't always happen anyway, whether or not uTorrent is running/doing stuff)

    Does it happen in nearly perfectly precise intervals? (Say, every 30 seconds?)

    Not that I've noticed. Sometimes it'll make me rage how often it does it, other times I can go a round with only one or two.

    Sometimes my HDD thrashes while it happens, but not always. And like I said at the start, it only seems to happen if my computer has been running for ages.

    Are you using a wired or wireless connection? If wireless:

    Clearly the problem is that you aren't playing on a PA server.

    Wired connection, and I'm in Australia, so playing on PA servers would not help, Crash :P

    I'm going to assume you're getting ping spikes so huge, that it "times out" and doesn't even register on the netgraph.

    No idea what would cause this.
