    You should free up your system as much as possible during capture and rendering.
    Also, please limit your question to one forum only.

    why exactly would you want to turn off your cable modem, if you have no internet activity going on, then nothing will go through. A NIC in a computer uses little to no resources. your modem is just a converter for the analog to digital signal for your computer, and it just runs cat45 to your computer. i really do not believe it will make a difference, press ctrl alt del (if you are in xp) and look at your performance tab, and then unplug your modem and see if their is a difference.

    Whenever I capture/edit i disable all non essential services to optimize performance. It does make a diffrence. You could set up profiles on your system to do this.
