    Hello guys

    I play GTR Evolution now for 1 week and i have lag online.
    I always see other drivers shocking online but my friend says thats its me he always see me shocking and not someone else.
    Is it maybe because i use a router?

    Ping.

    If your ping to the server is 100 or more, don't join.

    You can sort the server list by ping (lowest to highest). Join servers with the lowest ping and you won't have lag.

    75 ping or less is optimal.

    19 ping? That's a very nice ping.

    I don't think it's "online lag" you are having. It sounds like "hardware lag".

    Can you post your computer specs?

    Not true Mike. The ping is not often the main issue. I have been in many races with a ping over 200 and experienced zero lag!! I was on a private network with pings in the tenths with jumpy cars all around. Most of the time it had to do with some sort of apps running on someone's machine (virus, disk defrag, etc...) which interfered with the data received over the wire.

    Mileage might vary, but look at your firewall and virus settings first.

    Sounds a bit like packet loss - not that sure though. If you go start>run type cmd and then type ping www.google.com /t and see if you get any ping spikes or timeouts.
