So... PHJF -- are you saying that they don't have beta drivers for the Prelude? (I can't get to the creative site right now, it seems to be down)

And are you running a 64 bit OS with 4 gigs of ram?

Steam and games definitely start quicker.

Hump, do you have Verizon Fios?

It sounds like you have a problem caused by the router that Verizon gives out to its Fios subscribers.

PHJF - Just out of curiosity, are you running a card from the X-Fi family, with 4 gigs of ram?

If so, check out the new beta drivers on creative's site.

Fixed my problem.

When I dbl click on a server I want to play on the little window pops up that shows the server IP and all I get is a "server not responding" message.
I had that when my ISP was taken over. When I changed ISP it went away. Not much help but I know how annoying that was.

I've been having a frustrating problem with trying to join Steam games. When I dbl click on a server I want to play on the little window pops up that shows the server IP and all I get is a "server not responding" message.

If it fixes the start-up and download speeds, I will finally be totally satisfied with Steam. It still takes a depressingly long time to get into a game.

I still hold Guild Wars up as an example. One click on the icon, and you are connected to Arena Net a second later. If there is new content, the download takes mere seconds, and then you are at the Intro screen. You click on the character, and BAM!, you are playing a game.

If Steam was like that, no one but Riley/<U could hate it anymore!

Updated interface? I don't see that listed on the forums and haven't noticed any change in that department. However, it's meant to fix startup times, games getting paused and download speeds... the games getting paused was an issue that's been afffecting me recently.
