Network Lag while playing Dirt 3, and Saints Row 3

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is going to sound really weird but whenever I launch Dirt 3 or Saints Row 3 my family's internet signal gets very weak. I got to the point of frustration where I just unplug my ethernet cable before playing these games. I have no wireless capabilities in my computer and for some reason their internet is still slowed. I think they are just blaming the slow internet on me but it does seem to be true.
Is this at all possible? I can't understand how playing a single player game while disconnected from the internet can cause lag in other peoples computers.
the only thing I thought of is that the power my PC draws takes away from the routers power but I feel that's unlikely.
Any Ideas?

Any ideas? Sorry for the double posts, but now it's literally any game that I play.

Has it always done this? Is it recent, this week, this month? What company is the connection thru? and is there any limit to the usage on said connection?

I have heard of company's slowing peoples connection speed from over usage and using torrents. Any chance this is the problem?

It's comcast and I use chrome. Also when I check my bandwith it says 0 because I'm not connected to the internet. My ethernet is unplugged and unless some alien implanted a secret wifi card in my computer than I don't have wifi either. When I play these games I am completely disconnected from the internet yet my family cannot watch movies on netflix while I play.

If your pc isn't connected than it's definitely not the problem. Is there pc running good? Does netflix work fine when your pc is not running a game?

Sounds like something is wrong with there pc.

Sorry for the double post again, but I really need help with this. It seems physically impossible to me that my computer is somehow taking up bandwidth while playing single player games and with the ethernet cable disconnected.
Does anyone have any idea why my network is slow when I play these games?
