    hey this will be a simple and so easy question to answer for you.....

    for instance consider you connect to www.gamespot.com and

    at a time you connect to there, connection seems too slow
    think you have another connection to same site in another time for example 2 hours later
    and connection seems good

    shortly when you connect to a site in distinct times, connection speed will become
    different

    what are the reasons for this ?

    Many possible reasons:

    Your machine has a problem
    The server machine has a load problem
    Your ISP has a network problem
    Your ADSL contention has cut in
    There is congestion somewhere in the path between you and the server
    Your ISP has bandwidth-limited you because you have been using P2P too much.

    and so on... :biggrin

    mate i got it . Many people connecting at the same time to same site will reduce the connection speed ?

    then

    adsl contention ?


    server - my pc bandwidth issue cause lots of people connect simultaneously?

    Of course. Assume a server has a 10Mbit/s connection to the Internet. Just one person on their own connected will get that 10Mbps. 10 people connecting at the same time will only get 1Mbps each. And 100 people connection will each only get 100Kbps.
    Telcos and ISPs don't fully provision their links, on the grounds that not everybody will be heavy users at the same time.
    On one exchange there might be 30 people with 1Mbps connections. To save money the ISP/telco will only put in 10Mbps backhaul, instead of 30Mbps. This is known as contention.

    I don't understand the question I'm afraid.

    Depends.
    What game?
    What bandwidth does it use per user.
    How many simultaneous users
    What disk space is required per user?
    What disk space is required for the game?

    And that is just the start!

    for example does game have to have multiplayer feature to build a game server ?
    if not

    think 1000 users
    bandwidth, disk space per user and per game according to you ?
    game name would be witcher

    Er - if it isn't multi-player why the server?
    Don't know Witcher (yes - I know you posted screenshots - but I know nothing about the game), but 1000 *simultaneous* users will demand some serious hardware and Internet connection. On the other hand, if it is 1000 signed users, with only about 10 on at a time, then the requirements are much less.

    Having looked round a bit - I see no evidence that the server code has been released - so you wouldn't be able to run a server for it.

    If you know differently please give a link.

    You would probably need permission from the game developer as well (I think)

    Because if... the game doesn't support multi-player... then you can't serve up a multi-player version of the game on a server... :blink

    Never mind... someone find the popcorn, I seem to have misplaced it.

    Kobem I don't mean any disrespect but you really need to get a basic networking book. You seem to ask questions on topics you claim to understand but you don't.

    You have said that you can't find the N+ book in your country, is there not another basic networking book you could get? there must be at least a few in your local library.

    If you do not understand Bandwidth why not look up the term on google or get the A+ all in one exam guide its mentioned in there what it means.

    You also seem to jump from topic to topic, no wonder as you say get confused. Why not stick to one single topic until you thoroughly understand it before moving on?

    Hey, GBL... how many times have you (and others) said this exact thing? Which time do you think will be the charm?
