I play an online game and I have been having problems with it hanging. It started about a short time ago. It looks like some packets were not being received by my computer. My cable modem has a place to plug in cables. I have moved the cable from my pc to the modem bypassing the router and I have not had the problem.
I have done some reading about TCP and it seems that TCP should work around this issue and the packets should be resent. In my case, I have let the pc set for up to 10 minutes hung and it never frees up.
Please help me determine what is wrong. Is there anything in the router that might indicate what is happening?
Are there any settings I should check?
