When playing Battlefield 2142 online I am getting kicked off the server because of a high ping rate ( sometime up to over 300, but mostly around 260). I have turned off the firewall on my dsl modem and wireless router. I have added this game into my exceptions list with window xp firewall. Please help.
Re: High Ping When playing Battlefield 2142 Online
There are a lot of factors that can affect ping rates. Server location, server load, local internet load, and your computer and network setup.
The server you access for Battlefield may be too far from you. Try typing "ping 126.96.36.199", at the command prompt,(usually found in "All Programs/Accessories") also without the quotes. You should get numbers in the 40-60ms range. (thats Yahoo.com by the way), then put in the IP number of the Battlefield server.
Any returned numbers under 100ms are ok, if your getting higher numbers, check the Battlefield forums to see if there is a server closer to where your located.
If your getting numbers over 250-300ms at both sites, then download Lavasofts Adaware SE which is free, and Spybot Search & Destroy, also free and run them both, (once a week after as well) they will remove spyware and adware from your computer. There is a possibility that spyware or adware is using network resources.

I am not familiar with that specific MMORPG, are you logging into a dedicated host or is another player hosting the game, if it is another player hosting the game the problem could be on that players end and not yours.
You can try doing a hard rest on your router and then setting it back up, if you write down the old passcode you should be able to manually reenter it into the corresponding block in your router so you do not have to use a new one and setup all your wireless devices again.
It could also be someone else on your network hogging bandwidth" watching videos, downloading a large file"
Whenever your ping gets high,You can reset the modem and un plug the connection ,then restart the pc ,then connect and try to play again.This may helps to reduce the ping.You can check the Local LAN Connection Ping using the steps below..
Start->Run->Cmd Prompt ->Ping ip or ping website name To Ping a website you can visit the site Whoisxy.com/ping.aspx
the faster your broadband connection the lower your ping will be. broadband speed, is affected by company,area, how far you house is from the telephone exchange, could also be a problem with your line. things to do to begin with is www.speedtest.net speed test then if you are in the uk, use this site http://freeola.com/broadband/broadband-speed-availability-check.php should tell you what speed your broadband should be.
Hello, There are a number of things that can cause this, namely your internet speed. Make sure you have high speed internet with at least 10mbps download and 1mbps upload for best results. Game play can also be affected by wireless. If you are connected to your router via wireless, try using a network cable instead. If your wireless signal quality varies a lot it can cause disruptions in your connection. If you have any P2P programs running such as emule, limewire, torrents, etc... Shut them down as they tend to sap your upload speed which in turn, affects your game. If your computer is not that fast and doesn't play the game without online mode very well, it could be worse online being you are now rendering more elements into the game. Lastly, EA Servers may be over loaded at peak hours which could also affect your game play. Check your internet speed here http://www.speedtest.net and also your link quality here: http://www.pingtest.net Make sure your ping is at least below 80ms and your link quality is A or C. Any less and you may have trouble playing some online games. And again, for the speed, it's good to have at least 10mbps download and 1mbps upload. My connection is 50mbps download and 3mbps upload with ping grade A and ping 3ms, so I have never had any problems myself with online games and real-time streaming J Hope this helps! Chris
Ping is based on your distance from the server, and that's it.. Nothing you can do to make it any better.. You can try game booster to help with the game performance, but still won't help with the ping.. Just choose lower ping servers to play in..
When choosing a server try to sort the list by ping rate and go with the lowest ping you can that is offering the map and amount of players you are looking for. If you frequently get disconnected or see connection_error on your screen while playing it could be a problem with your actual internet connection dropping packets. To test that you will need to ping a well known server like google or microsoft and see what ping times you get and if any packets are lost. This can by done by clicking start -> run and typing cmd then pressing ok. In the dos box that pops up type ping -n 20 www.google.com and press enter. Significant packet loss and high ping times could mean your connection is saturated from other downloads/uploads, there is some bad cabling or network hardware somewhere, or your ISP is having some problems. If you are connected to a router or other network equipment and assuming you have a high speed connection try connecting directly to the modem provided to you and see if that helps. If the problem continues you will need to contact your internet provider for additional troubleshooting.
