So why is this computer lagging so much?

My brother and I play MMOs together and he has a stronger PC rig than I do and while we both can play games at max settings he lags horribly in every MMO and will eventually just get disconnected from the game. I did some searching around and found that through the wireless USB router he was only getting 2 MPS even though he had full signal. He replaced the router and was getting 10 MBS for a few days and then it just dropped back down to 2 again.

When he bought the computer it came in parts and we put it together, he's convinced that it's something we did (or didn't) do that's the problem, I still think it's something to do with his network.

Here's the specs he sent me off Speccy, any idea what the problem might be? Also if you need more information just let me know and I'll get it from him.

Thank you for your time.

Sounds like an ungreased ethernet port.

*sighs* Thanks for pointing that out. I glanced through to make sure there were no passwords or SNs listed but must have missed that. I've deleted it from this copy;

So what exactly does that mean?

It means that the contacts can't properly transmit the data unless there is an additional data transmission medium. You can buy it at most hardware stores, but I suggest a specialty store like CompUSA or Best Buy, something along those lines. Just ask for Data Jelly, it's the most well-known brand.

What he said. I don't think I could game a single day anymore without my faithful tub of DataJelly at my desk. Saved me in more than one occasion.
