  • Help! High ping --> BF2 unplayable!

    I have ATT DSL service, 3 Mbps in San Diego, CA. I've noticed that my ping whenever I play any online games is way too high and/or inconsistent. I've tried messing around w/ settings and tried various optimization programs but to no avail. Line quality and bandwidth tests from broadbandreports.com show normal results.

    Does anyone else have trouble with high pings using [ATT] DSL, and how did you resolve it? My modem/router is the 2wire 2701 model that ATT gives you. Should I try a different unit?

    I don't have any answers, but since I am also in San Diego I will share.

    I use Roadrunner (Time Warner cable) and typically ping ~100 to the POE server (actually all TG servers located in VA). I recently started using GameRail, which lowers my ping to ~90. Since the closest connection currently is in LA, I hope to lower it further once Time Warner is on board.

    How bad are your pings?

      As low as 150 and as high as 4000, although it fluctuates between 200 and 400. I get a lot of rubberbanding which makes it impossible to navigate and aim.

        Wow, that would be unbearable. Can you switch carriers?

        Also, try posting at www.hardforum.com where you'll likely find lots of helpful feedback.

          Unfortunately my apartment complex has some kind of deal w/ ATT so that they're the only ISP the tenants can use :(

          Thanks for the hardforum tip, didn't think of trying there!

            What a deal! Maybe you can steal Wifi from the neighbors?
