Yeah, I've been having this problem where in this online game I play, I notice that my ping is too large (around 1 or 2 hundred, and once it even got up to 2000 or so). The game is Continuum, and that probably does't have anything to do with this as I notice some lag in other online games too. Anyway, I've heard that running Messenger (I use MSN) can create a big ping, that is pretty obvious, but even when I close it, my ping is still big. I'm not really desperate, but if anyone has any suggestions than that would be appreciated. Thanx.
