    hi,

    Well, perhaps as last resort, try the following:

    - if you haven't upgrade the bios of the motherboard, try to update it and see if such bios upgrade helps;
    - I don't know if it helps, but did you try power-cycling your modem?
    - Did you only use the VIA sound onboard drivers from Asrock's site, or also from VIA Technologies' official site? VIA technologies has the latest driver (Nov. 2012) for your onboard soundchip which may solve the issues for you;
    - try to use different PCI slots (there are 3 on your Asrock motherboard) for the PCI network add-on card. See if such switch from PCI slots helps;
    - Did you try clearing cmos/bios with "jumper" (by shorting the specific pins on the motherboard with a jumper) Read the instructions for this in the booklet for your motherboard. In the past clearing cmos did help me sorting out issues with my nForce 3 motherboard.
    Cvrk says thanks.

    Maybe try a USB sound device? They only run about $20 or so here in the US and both XP and 7 contain native drivers for them so getting a "good" driver isn't typically an issue.

    TC-Man, I updated my bios and used the latest drivers from the VIA Technologies' official site. No positive result.
    I will try the clearing cmos.

    raspppoe.sys high latency solved

    With the uncanning help of TC-man :toast:,my problem is partially solved
    I done advanced research, discussed the problem both with ASUS manufacturer tech experts and Microsoft Windows forums administrators. RASPPPEO.SYS has been seen before. Alot of internet provider companys in europe use the same method to connect via internet, same way i do.
    The following is an advice for anybody facing this problem : buying new hardware may or may not solve your problem. Even with expensive asus motherboard and sonar sound card people across the world have face same difficulties. Huge latency, pops cracks, sound interruption etc.
    My solution: I am using an old Creative Audigy 2 sound card with the following improved drivers

    For those of you who don't have money to buy new hardware, you can try all of the optional solutions mentioned in this thread.
    My high latency is still there (at least this is what LatencyMon indicates), but by using this sound card the poping and the cracks are 99% gone. For me it is a most favorable outcome!

    It's good to hear that you have solved the issue!:cool: Glad that I could help and that the Daniel_K's driver pack work out well for you.
