    On bf2, it said I got kicked for "ignoring md5 queries" or something along those lines. I have no idea what this means, do I need to update punkbuster? My zonealarm logs showed that I wasn't blocking anything related to pb.

    Does it happen consistently, or just the one time?

        aha... Happening to me right now too. That, and I have been kicked 3 straight times for "Packet Loss".

          Could be Internet "weather" (ie. router problems) interfering with connection to the Punkbuster servers. I posted a link somewhere around here to a chart that shows the health of the major peering points.

            I ran the PBSetup program tonight and noticed there was a new PB update. If problems continue, try downloading the updated at www.evenbalance.com. I noticed quite a few PB kicks tonight...

              This is a wild guess since I don't know much about Punkbuster, but if you've set it so that Punkbuster waits the maximum time before checking (the interval is like 600 seconds or something), and PB manages to miss that check-in because of your connection, you'd get kicked. Have you changed your PB settings at all?

                Nope, haven't touched punkbuster. I rebooted and everything worked ok for the rest of the evening.

                  I noticed A LOT of complaints about PB problems on other bf2 boards last night. Seems they happen every now and then... One a week or two ago was false reporting a game hack.

                    Yeah, I got the md5 error the other day. Before the kick, everything was running incredibly slowly and was fairly laggy. When I rejoined, it was back up to normal speed.
