i wanted to keep my Gentoo Desktop with XFCE online as long as possible, but today after a uptime of 16 hours i experienced some network lag in a mmorpg game called runescape nxt, rebooting the Gentoo Desktop solved the network lag.

Question: what could have caused the network lag? is it related to the long uptime? where can i start to solve the problem making it possible to keep my Desktop up for a long period without suffering from network lag/issues?

**edit** apparently the runescape game servers have some issues and this is not caused by the Gentoo XFCE system.

ysbeer,

As you rebooted, we don't have much to go on. It could be almost anything.

Heres some tests for next time.

a) Restart the game. If that fixes it, it may be the game.
b) Is only the game affected?
c) Restart the interface. (is it wired or wireless)?
d) Remove and reinsert the network interface kernel module.

Do not rule out the game generating a lot of network traffic and your ISP running QoS.
Ask your ISP. If that's the case, get a new ISP
