    post your system stats...

    also do not have ANY background apps running when you play so that you don't get lag spikes or packet loss when you play..

    also select only servers that are close to you before you play... your ping is lower than...

    I play with a firewall... that has nothing to do with it

    forwarding ports on the firewall is far better than disabling your firewall...
     
  5. I Got a p3 500 mhz

    Voodoo 5500 64 mb

    396 mbram !!!



    I dont understand...and when i test my connection on the net..is very faster...very very!!!I dotn have firewall and i juste slect the server from quebec canada...and i live at quebec...!!!

    Even if you have a fast connection, it's not going to help much if the server your playing on is on the other side of the world.

    Be sure to set your filter to block out all high ping games.

    I get 40 to 60 ping on my Cable connection.

    I had that exact same problem and here's what the problem was. I had somehow switched the zoom on my monitor (the controllers on the monitor itself) to be too large, and was getting 56kish pings with it. So I changed it something like 10% so that there was just a little black line around the edges of the screen. voila, 30 ping again.:cool:
