Hi All,

I do not know a great deal about computers so please go slow... :tazz:

My problem is simple - y frusturating. Whenever I play COD2 my ping is in the 250+ range. I have a fast computer and 1meg broadband and the truly exasperating thing is that I know it can work. Sometimes, seemingly randomly, my ping goes to below 50, where I believe it always should be able to go considering my specs.

My question is why the [bleep] is my ping normally so high?!?! I try turning off my firewall, and that doesn't work. I am really, really at a loss. Could it have something to do with my router and if so how can I fix that?

I would really appreciate any help but remember... go :) slow please

well it can be for any number of reasons. I'll give an example to demonstrate. I have a friend who is stationed in thailand. because of this when he connects to our server that is located in NewYork City his ping is around 300. Ping is most affected by latency introuduced by connecting with a wireless card, or by a bad hop, or by many hops (as in my example). When you browser for a server to play on try sorting by ping and go for the one that is the lowest and see if that helps.
