    internet prob after playing games

    hi, hope this is in the correct section.

    ive been playing Skyrim a lot lately through Steam and after i stop playing i cant connect to the internet (constant time outs), i usually have to restart to connect and even then it can still be very slow sometimes. i am not very good when it comes to diagnosing and fixing internet problems and tbh i dont even know where to start looking for the problem or what info i need to put here to get help. i dont know if the problem comes from my pc, my router or the connection itself so if somebody could point me in the right direction as to where to start i would greatly appreciate it.

    Please supply more information.

    What operating system? What service pack level is installed? Are you up-to-date with patches?

    What make and model of router? Have you checked for firmware updates at the router vendor site?

    What version of Steam?

    Joe
