hey guy's got another problem for yas to figure out, in games my ping is in the well 100's.. which is not making me play very well. So i was wondering is there any way i can lower this to say 20-50?

My test is saying my average ping is in the 70's which it isnt in games.. so again is there some solution anyone knows or maybe some freeware that reduces my lag?

try finding a server with a lower ping. It all depend on other users as well. I f a 56 k user comes on it will bumb up everones ping time! Go to severs that are only for high speed connections or for those that have ping exeptions!

hm ok, i got all my stuff off.. but i just played a game with every1 having ping at around 30-80 but i had 120.. whats up with that? i mean my ping times were way better on my 1.06ghz celeron, but what i'm on now is obviously way better.. there must be somthing causing this. I did contact tech support for the game and they said a bunch of stuff i already did, they also said some cable modem's have firewall's runing without me knowing so. But i called up COX and they have no firewall.. runing so i dunno, could it be the modem it's self? or the connecting wire maybe? it's like 5 years old.. more or less

theres not much you can do about the ping in your case, just play on servers that are in your area and are for high-speed only. If you connect to a server in japan and your in the middle of the usa then your ping will be high. i know for counter-strike i found a server that was close to home and now thats the only one i go to. Also at lan partys you cant even get pings of 20 sometimes. try joining servers with low users in it...
