Anyone have any issues with inbound data rate in Counter Strike Source? This is supposedly controlled by cl_updaterate and relates to the tic rate of the server. This information is seen using net_graph 3. Check this out for background: Reducing Choke, Optimize your network settings - Counter-Strike Guide, Tips and Strategy - FPS GOD As you can see from the net_graph 3 images and what is being explained, the "in" and "out" are supposed to be equal. However, when I'm playing my "in" is WAY higher than my "out" and can sometimes jump up significantly. I do get some major choke too. From what I understand it is network related. I just swapped out my router (since I was having trouble with in anyway) but that didn't help. I really doubt it's the NIC in my machine, but I can try swapping that out too. I would like to swap out my modem, but I don't have a spare. Any ideas? P.S. I have tried all of the console commands (cl_updaterate, cl_cmdrate, rate) in CSS to try and optimize my connection and nothing has worked.
