    If you read the broadband forums trogers and shrinked MTUs for people to tweak ping times a small bit.

    To do a tracert, click 'Start' and then 'Run'. Type "cmd" into the box and click 'ok'.

    A DOS black screen will appear. Type after the C:\>

    tracert www.yahoo.com

    and press enter key

    When test is completed, move mouse cusor to the DOS black screen, click right and choose 'select all'.

    Move mouse cursor to the Quick Reply box of this forum, click right and 'paste'.

    Your getting electrical interference turn of your modem relocate it away from electrical devises, turn ur modem back on and do another tracert.
    OR
    If that doesn't solve your problem could be that your firmware isn't up-to-date.
    You have a router?

    well from what I can tell being as high north as he is he's trying to run through too many hops and the end point is too laggy.. find another game server.

    If I ping in the 80's on a west coast server and 30 on a east coast server where do you think I should play or should I try to fight with the issue of the high west coast server pings that will never change lol

    I ping 140 - 160 to the east coast
    and 40 - 80 on the west

    if i could get my ping under a hundred i could play with my pals on the east coast

    thats just your service provider and hops that you go through to get to them.

    your going to just have to either eat the high pings if you want to keep playing on the East coast or play on west coast servers..

    you never see me play on any servers past Texas.. my pings are just too high for my liking.

    Well your end seems to be OK now.
    Try asking trogers to set u up with some custom setting for the TCP optimizer and can help your ping!
    But I don't know how to do

    He can run and adjust TCP optimizer 1000 times but the fact to the matter is he's trying to connect to servers 4 time zones away so the pings are going to be higher.. plus other factors. Its like me trying to connect to a game in the UK..i'm going to ping higher than those here in the East coast no matter what I do.

    True but trogers can help lower the ping by a little bit.

    thats my point lower it some so its at least what should be expected guys further west get better pings. I had better pings6 months ago. its too bad you cant pick the path to the server

    ug.. your missing the point.. and the pings are decided on many more factors than what his computer is prob causing or creating. Distance seems to be the biggest issue.

    I'd like to see a tracert to this GOD of all servers your wanting to connect to Randy..

    trogers may be good with tweaking but your not going to see pings get lowered by no amount of tweaking to do any good.

    I like alot of servers but they are only East coast and a few as far west as Texas but thats all.. I won't play on West Coast servers or beyond cause its the distance or amount of hops you need to run through to get the latency. I heard a while back one provider was working on a gaming package that they were in talks with alot of big ISP's and data centers to re-route those gamers paying more to get better latency and yes better pings but from going through less hops to get to the point or server they were playing on which was most likely located at one of the said gaming centers.

    dude its just the same old servers we used to play dc and bfv on Prior to bf2 i could play with my east coaster friends and kick some ass. Since bf2 i havent been able to hang I have too much lag. I havent b1tched about ping in a long time so well... maybe its just an increase in net congestion over the years

    aww ok I see where your getting at.. well I'd like to see that tracert to that server anyway if you don't mind posting it.. however BF2 utilizes ALOT more bandwidth than DC or BFV does... so in knowing that ya might see why the latency and pings are a bit higher.
