    I recently moved into an apartment with 3 other guys, and my cable service there does not "feel good" at all, often. What I mean by that is that it feels slow and unresponsive, or else I'll be playing a game where I will suddenly see my ping skyrocket and/or disconnect. I thought the problem was that a roommate might have been running bittorrent, but to test I lowered his number of settings and upload bandwidth way, way low. Then I noticed in my router settings underneath "Active Sessions" that my desktop (I have a desktop and a laptop) is showing to be using almost ALL of the active sessions...posted below (this snapshot is while my other computer is also using the net, and a roommate or two is probably as well)

    I'm currently on 6mb cable internet service, running through a D-LINK DIR 625. That cable runs to a Linksys switch that I have, and I have it into position 1. I then have my laptop, desktop, and roommate's ethernet stuck into 2,3, and 4. My laptop is .107, desktop is .106, and the other couple are roommates. Why is this one computer opening sooooo many?

    I do noy know wich application you use to generate this data.

    If this Reading are progressing in time, it is Not that unusual.

    Use this application, http://technet.microsoft.com/e...nternals/bb897437.aspx

    Run it and do not do any thing related to the Network/Internet.

    If while idling it produces such a reading then oy might be a sign of trouble.

    That list was the current list of Active Sessions as seen by my router. I just ran that TCPView program. When it first came up there were a large number of things that went red and then disappeared. after letting it sit quiet for a while, the output is
