I bought a laptop.
I just purchased the
Acer Aspire AS5672WLMi-ATI X1600 NoteBook Intel Core Duo T2300(1.66GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA 1GB DDR2 533 120GB 5400rpm DVD±R/RW ATI Mobility Radeon X1600
For a grand total of 1080$.
Anyways, I wanted to play CS 1.6, but the ping is too spikey.
The server I play on is in Chicago, which is where I live. At home, I ping 15 on the server, and I ping 15 here also, and then every 30 seconds, it will fluctuate to 150-800 ping, and consistently stay there for 2-5 minute intervals, and then lag-free for 30 seconds, and then repeat.
The college network is not wireless, I have a long ethernet cable which I connect directly. How can I fix this ping? It is very annoying, please help, thanks.
