Hi,
Ever since the recent update I've been having major lag in every server I go into including local servers with less than 20 ping making the game unplayable, anyone having a similar problem?
 
Solution
if teamspeak is affecting your other programs network performance it's eating too much bandwidth. if teamspeak doesn't offer traffic modulation I suggest you move to mumble.

flushing your dns can be accomplished as follows:
go to start > run > type in: cmd /k ipconfig /flushdns > hit ok

flushing dns basically resets the preresolved server path your packets take on the route to their target, it's possible that one of the servers in this path is being a turd and when you flush dns it will take a little longer for your first time connection but once the dns is cached again it should improve. This was a relatively common problem about 4-5 years ago, ISPs have gotten better since then but you never know.

renewing your ip could be done the...
what do you mean by lag? latency issues with network? I doubt it's anything on your end, if you're doubting flush your dns and renew the IP address, check your pingtest.net scores.

if by lag you mean stutter or frame skip then look at your performance graphs and temperatures on your hardware.

Latency issues with network definitely, every step I move I get pushed half a step back, I've cleared temp files, my network speed is 12mb and my ping is 20.

renewing your ip could be done the same way (/renew parameter on ipconfig function) on local intranet, but to get a new IP from your ISP you'll need to power down your modem for 5-10 mins or so then plug it back in.

For people like me who experiance lag i think best solution is Latency optimize from badosoft, it helped me a lot! :hello:
