    Hey there. Maybe one of you can help me out with this.

    Basically, TF2 lags up the wazoo for no apparent reason. Any time there is more than one other person on screen it just gets so choppy I can't even aim. This happens on just about all servers, but sometimes I can find an orange map that I can play on (sigh..)

    I would think it's my connection, but all the other games I've played work fine (L4D, CS:S, KF). I am using a wireless router, but even moving closer to it doesn't solve the problem. I've tried lowering the graphics settings but it doesn't do much (if anything).

    Suggestions?

    Hey, have you tried turning up your Connection Speed in the Steam settings? Just a suggestion.

    You could try a static IP to allow your router direct access to servers instead of filtering through it, although I am unfamiliar on how to do it. Google would help.
