  1. hi guys, i was wondering how do i lower my ping on XP, is there any tweakers out there or settings, what i did was set my coms port to 11500 and i set this string to it S11=50 which makes it dail faster, is there any other way or something i missed.???

    What does your dialing speed have to do with your ping???
    I'm not sure you can do anything to improve it (unless it's very high due to a missconfiguration/broken hardware).

    Duno what your ping is like but in counter strike i can get 140 and slightly better. However this is because i changed modem, my old one was not a traditional win-modem but still used alot of my processor as much as 20%, having switched to a external 56k i get the above pings. I also find that only running a 433 it makes games run much smother when online. My only other sugstion is change ISP or the number that u dial for the isp you are with. I am with Freeserve anytime but bt who i was with was also a bit slower, and aol do noy touch them all the pings i have seen in the uk for aol where 400+

    Hope that helps someone

    You can improve ping speed by getting a faster internet connection. That's about your only choice (that will change anything).
