    Anybody using ComCast cable? I have been using it for years without a problem but the past month BF2 makes the modem reboot. Just wondering if anybody else has this problem.

    Re: ComCast

    Go to your local office and get a new modem, or call and have a truck sent out. See my thread further down called "My lag sucks" about my recent problem with Comcast.

      Re: ComCast

      Heya Kin3.
      I've been with comcast for many, many years now.. back since they used to be known as '@home'.

      I have not been having that kind of problem with Comcast in relation to a specific game.. as a matter of fact, I consider Comcast pretty darn gamer-friendly.

      I currently game with BF2 on Comcast while simulaneously using Vonage voice service over them same connection without any problems - typically pinging in the 30's to low 50's.

      Enough about that and on to your issue. There was a problem with some Motorola access-points that the power connector got 'iffy' over time because of a heating - related issue. If you lease the AP (I think they still call it a MODEM) from Comcast see if they'll exchange it.. they are pretty 'no hassles' about it in our service area. If you have the white/beige Motorola Surfboard, that is roughly rectangular shaped - and it is more then a few years old, your odds go up that it might be that.

        Re: ComCast

        I have been with them for a few years also and have not had a problem. But when it started about a month ago it is so bad that I can' t depend on it. It is the upload that really does it in. I can have a solid connection and start BF2 and it will stop working in a matter of minutes. I have read on the ComCast forum that other people are having the same problem with other games also. I just wanted to see if other people were getting through.

        ComCast has changed the modem 3 or 4 times and the results are always the same.

        I have ordered the hookup kit from MaBell for DSL and when I get it installed I will cancel my ComCast connection. I would love to stay with them but if they refuse to fix it I have no other choice.

        Thanks for your response.

          I had a problem with America's Army about 2 years ago.. When I'd load the menu, the modem would reset. If I let it sync, I could get in to the game and play, but bringing up the menu would make the modem reset again. Went to the office, got a new modem, problem went away. Have they actually come out to your place to check the signal quality and such?

          Right now I have a tiny little Scientific Atlanta modem that I got a couple months ago when the old one just refused to power up one day. No problems from it.

            My issue with Comcast and modems is that mine resets about 90% of the time when attempting FTP connections. Games are ducky.

              We had major ping issues with Comcast over the summer, mostly at night, here in the bay area. It turned out to be a node from Comcast to AT&T, and neither company was taking responsibility for fixing it. They eventually did, but what a pain to have to complain to Comcast all the time and have it take that long to get it fixed.
