poker site slow down or lock up
« on: May 23, 2004, 06:41:06 AM »
Hi,  My internet connection is only at 24,000bps max.  When I play on this poker site it seems when I get over 2,000,000 bytes sent the game slows down and some times locks up. I then have to reboot and go back to the site to play. I was wondering why this happens.
    I was told that java had something to do with this.
    I'm running windows 98, 800 meg HD, 320 Ram. Thanks for any help.

Correction that should have read 2,000,000 bytes received.    Thanks

    Phil.....thats a very slow speed ...what modem do you have , 28.8 , 33 or 56
    Java usually would only affect logging on ( I think) , but you probably have M/S Virtual machine installed .....do you have Sun ( Java ) installed ?  Is this something that has just started ?
    let us know

    dl65  ???
    If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

    Hi dl65, the modem is a 56k but the phone lines in this area only lets me connect at 24,000bps. No it slows down almost everytime I go on that site to play. Not sure about if I have Java installed or not. Could it be the site that I go to?      Thanks, Phil

      Phil......Wow that sucks having a connection speed that low .....have you checked with other people in your area re their connection speed.  When I was using dialup I used to go to a Casino and play vid poker .....I noticed that their site was really slow and at time I had to leave come back and then it would work ok for a while and them just stop ......
      Do you have problems with other sites or just that one ....given the terrible speed of your server.....have you tried changing the speed in the properties advanced setting in your modem ....

      Hi dl65,  The name of the poker site is Ultimatebet.com.
      As far as the modem properties , I have it set at the max 115,200.  That is the only site that really gives me any problem.  I haven't asked anyone else in the neighborhood about there connection speed, I guess I'll  have to do that.  Thanks for trying to help me out.

      try connecting the modem directly to the main phone box...and have you thought of broardband?or try update the modem drivers it may help?a 56k should run at 48bps?also maybe the modem needs changing how old is it?...
