well this is a confusing problem for me, I have been playing ET for a couple years now on and off, and my ping usually stays between 80-100 on a east coast server ( I live on west coast Canada) but now it has been jumping all over the place from 120 -700 , I have a 2.66 ghz pentium4 comp wioth 1 gig ram and a radeon 9550 vid card, my isp is shaw extreem ( up to 7mbs download) I only have at the mazimum of 18 process's running while I am playing and everyone of the process's I can account for. SO does anyone have any sugesstions? like could i t be my ET config or vid card I am at a total loss.

run tracert :

start, run, type in cmd. once the cmd window opens type in "tracert 127.1.1.1" where the 127.1.1.1 is the servers ip your trying to connect to. it should indicate the route and number of hops between you and the server. chances are there is a problem on the internet highway causing problems.

it all depends on what your tracert shows. if its near enough to you, then you can contact your isp. if not then try to play on a different server and see what happens.
