    In the network settings, does it matter what that is set at If you're not hosting. I've never touched it but just checked and it has download and upload at 256kb. I have a 150mb download and 12mb upload on my internet so should I adjust the games network settings accordingly. I don't suffer with lag so... cheers

    256kb is spot on. :)

    Depending on grid size the network consumption of 1 client will be 62kbs - 190kbs. Client upload speed will be a bit lower then download speed. So if you set the network setting higher it doesn't change a thing.

    Lag issues (on the client side) are mostly due to bad ping. You can have a 12mb upload speed and still have bad ping.
    If you have your game PC wired to your router, you'll have the best results. Wifi ping can vary a lot, and power line adaptors can have some interference as well.

    You can check your ping and internet speed at: (click here) check your connection to a few dots in the Netherlands. :)
