How i can decrease internet speed required per player ???
Hello i have small problem :

My server can handle 6 players when 6th player joins then it start lag... I have very slow internet. Did there is any way to decrease internet speed required per player to make my server handle 10 players ???

sorry for noob question.
You can adjust the sv_maxrate and sv_minrate cvars.
you should also reduce sv_maxcmdrate (->corresponding to the download speed of your server) and sv_maxupdaterate (->upload), else you will get choke and a very bad hit recognition. probably you should keep both at the same value. and maybe you should also set fps_max to that same value. I would estimate that setting all to 33 should solve your problem (default is 66, 33 should also half the required bandwidth, 5 players are working well and 10 should approximately take twice the bandwidth). I do not think that lower values are feasible, as the server will get really bad then... (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)
Do not ask technical questions via PM!
fps_max doesn't work anymore..
just for further reference: fps is now bound to tickrate and is 66 by default. a patch ~1 month age changed lots of logics in server code and fps is no longer sufficient but the ticks.
No,there is not any problem in the layer.It can due to the cause of some of the following factors:They are Hardware,Wiring,Virus,Memory, etc..Some of the basic tips for better internet connection are,
* Check the Start up programs and remove the unwanted
* Maintain a Decent Space limit at Hard drive
* Check for Malware, Spyware and bots
* Clear cookies and temporary history files
* Close unwanted background tasks if any
* Reset the modem
* Browse with latest and updated browser
* Download using torrents
* Upgrade your hardware
