After installing cable, my downloads and connect speeds are great. But, my lag time on chat servers have increased on average by a significant amount - sometimes up to 63 seconds! I've gone on when the server is lightly loaded and had the same BIG lags. When I use my laptop and dial-up at 33.6 my lag is only 1-2 secs. Has anybody seen this? Does anyone know why this happens and how to fix this. I checked and my ISP maxmtu is 1500 so I'm matched there.

lag occurs somewhere on the path between you and the chat server, so you might want to try different ones. Your dial-up ISP propably uses different backbone provider, and you would have to test different servers to see which one works better with your new ISP.
