    I just bought a new router for my ADSL connection after using a hub for 4 years. i just got it running, and notice that when i play starcraft, i lag and eventually drop from the game. i never had this problem before. any ideas? thanks!

    Might need to open the ports that the game uses. Google can help you find what they are.

    You really shouldn't have any problems since you're acting as a client and joining a game, opening the ports should really only be done for servers, but give it a shot anyway.
