My brother and I have been playing A2 since it came out, but recently we seem to be having a problem with the connection in Gamespy or even running in TCP/IP mode. What happens is, when we have been playing for a while it starts giving us the message "Waiting for Player for xx seconds until after several times it says the player has been disconnected. We both are on comcast cable connections, and have no problems playing Ghost Recon even with me running sidewinder gamevoice in server mode. Both PC's are Athlon rigs running win2000pro and at least 256Mb of pc133 ram. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

ok it should fully matter what Processor Speed you have and ram , but it might be a possible fix looking at the following thing I have listed below : 1. ) WinXp interneal Firewall turned off 2. ) If your using dial-up : A. ) if your modem is damaged B. ) if Modem Drivers up to date with Presnent Updates

3.) If constantly Using MS Internet Explorer. A. ) Internet Cache is Emptied B. ) If Browser up to date wtih MS- Windows Updates

4. ) If useing Dsl : A. ) If Cache has been Killed B. ) If Cable that makes connection not damaged. C. ) If Drives for DSL is up to date

5. ) If using Cable : A. ) Same as DSL & All Above

Both connections are by Comcast cable modem high speed - no driver issues involved. Both running Windows 2000 Professional. Nothing unusual running in the background (no anti virus, firewall, no hardware routers etc. The thing that drives me crazy is, it only happens with A1, and A2 except with A1 it goes out of synch almost immediately (1 to 2 minutes into the game). A2 just loses connectivity between the gamespy servers and our connections????
