Exclamation Netplay framerates drop after 5 mins.

I am running UT on an Athlon T-Bird 1.3 GHz, w/ 256 MBs SDRAM, SB Live! and a GeForce 2 Pro 64 MB DDR. Normally UT runs like a dream even with maximum resolution and everything turned all the way up...
However, when I join an online server, things start out great but after about 5 minutes the game starts skipping constantly. It's playable (barely) but still highly irritating...
Any ideas what the problem is???

When you are in onlline game, hit your F6 key to see your true ping, packet loss and netspeed.
If you encounter packet loss you can try to lower your netspeed.
If your netspeed is 10000 try to with 9000 or even lower.
Open your console and type netspeed 9000.
