Hello everyone, I frequently play call of duty onlne. over the past few months my ping has gone up to around 125. Today I upgraded my connection to 1.5mb in hopes this would help but my ping tonight has actualy doubled. I have done a tracert on the server and the results are aroun 75ms but when I get into the game the ping jumps to over 200. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks
Tim :whistling:

hello tim c and welcome to geekstogo, :whistling:
by any chance do you have anything running in the background using up your internet such as a P2P program uploading informatoin or downloading information, one of the many examples.
Also what firewall does your comptuer have? Windows? Syngate? Zone labs? Making your game an exception for your firewall will cause it to go through without it verifying if its good or bad.
thanx

no file shareing programs or firewalls, I also disable norton while in the game. By the way I uninstalled cod and reinstalled it and it helped alot( my ping is around 100 ) which is were it was until the past couple of months. But shouldnt it go down since I went up to a t1 connection? I live about 3 blocks from the hub and the server is only two states away. I know some of the people live much farther away from the server and ping in the 50's.
Thanks for the help

hello again tim c, :whistling:
You need to have a firewall running one your computer at all times. If not you're computer is at a high risk of being infected. By any chance do you know about windows firewall? And is you Norton the security sweeps one...or what ever they call it now......or is it just the anti-virus?
thanx

I strongly suggest that you reenable it then add COD as an exception. When this is done it passes through the firewall as if it wasn't even there. Yet your still getting the protection.
Also is your computer just reaching the requirements of the game?
thanx
