A typical setup for this should look as follows:

highspeed modem >> router >> switches (both) >> clients

It sounds like you have the switches daisy chained:

router >> switch 1 >> switch 2

If your router has 4 LAN ports, its recommended you plug both switches into the router unless there is a specific reason for not doing so.

Try connecting both switches to the router's LAN ports, if possible, if not do let me know and we'll take a look at other things to troubleshoot.

Ok , let me make it alittle bit clearer

highspeed modem >> router >> (switch [1] with 7 ports ) >> 5 lines out from the switch >> 1 of these lines connected to my old computer , so i took this line and connected it to another switch >> (switch [2] with 4 ports ) >> 2 lines out of this switch one to my old computer and the other to my new computer .

if there is something else u need to know , feel free to ask me , i really need to fix this issue , and dont forget about the guide thing ?

i can see both computers have the same ip address .

They can't have the same ip address.

Why do you think you have packet loss? Send and receives NEVER match.

what is your issue? We know packet loss isn't an issue.

OK so you changed your ip. To what? And what didn't get fixed?

Once again you have no packet loss. It is perfectly normal to see different amounts for send vs receive. You NEVER EVER see exactly the same send and receive.

What you see is NORMAL so forget about packet loss.

Packet loss is when you send a packet and it doesn't arrive at its distination. This results in a resend of the packet. You can not detect this is happening on your computer. You can not say you have packet loss if your send and receive don't match. They never match so this conclusion is false.

Ipconfig /renew means you are asking the dhcp server to renew your ip address.

If both machines can get to the internet at the same time you have no issues. There is nothing to solve. Have a great day.

You made it clear you think sent and receive should be the same numbers. This is not the same as packet loss between you and a game server.

Might want to review this so you understand what the lagometer is all about.

Noteing this line:
"When it is red packets are being lost from the server to you, this is usually a server or internet congestion/routing problem."

You do need information on lagometers, or at least learn to understand it.

Wanderer gave you the answer. It is a server or internet congestion/routing problem. The logometer goes on to say Remember Red is dead, change server's or ISP's.

Thats what you need to do about it.

You can't fix it because there's nothing wrong with your system/network. Whatever is causing the issue is between you and your game server.

Everything wanderer said was bang on the money.
