I’ve tried Googling around for an answer, but I’m not having much luck on this unfortunately. I was hoping someone here might be able to help.
I’ve noticed that my internet slows to a crawl whenever I’m connected to a Rust server. My searching has turned up lots of folks saying that the Steam server browser causes this, but after adjusting the pings per second setting in Steam to as low as it goes I’m still having the same problem. My internet goes from the usual 50-60mbps to 3-5mbps. This doesn’t happen when I’m in the Rust main menu, or the server browser. Only when I’m online and connected to a server. I can fire up speedtest.net, start the test, see it at 3-5mbps, alt+f4 Rust and it immediately goes back up to the correct speed. NetBalancer shows me that nothing else is eating up the bandwidth, and Rust isn’t even using much.
Soooo, any idea what’s going on here? It’s really annoying! I like to browse the web and watch YouTube and such on my second monitor when I’m waiting for ore to smelt or whatever, but now everything I’m trying to do just lags over there.

I’ve got a decent system so I don’t think this is an issue with my hardware. Not sure what else to try. Please help!
