Hi all, please help me! I got BF 2142 a few weeks now, upgraded to v1.25 and got northern strike as well. all was going peachy until i tried to play online. when i choose a server to play on it would load everything (client data, map etc) but the when it starts up it would say on the screen 'There is a problem with your connection'. now i tried near everything, switched off zonealarm, turned off firewalls. now i am almost 100% sure its not my internet connection as i play many online games without any hiccups! i have reinstalled the game already as well! please help!:( :( :(

Whats your system specs (i.e. PC speed/make and model, RAM, Internet connection type, HDD space, GC....that pretty much covers it).

Ok your running broadband internet. Heres a couple questions: 1) Is your internet wireless? 2) Have you tried installing the latest drivers for all of you computer parts? 3) Is Windows Firewall up? 4) Do you have any anti virus, adware/spyware, 3rd party firewalls running? One recommendation I have is to press Ctrl + Alt + Del then go to task manager. Close down any programs under Processes that you KNOW that you don't need running. I would seriosly recommend that do not close any system or Local/Network Service programs. It could lead to system instability and your computer could crash. If that doesn't help, contact a well know computer repair/maintenance store/company and ask them about what you could do. I hope this helps.

i do have wireless however, the PC i am using is connected to the router itself! all drivers are up to date, windows firewall, norton protection and zonealarm all turned off! and i still get 'There is a problem with your connection'! this is getting very annoying and has made think about ignoring this game forever! cos i have had no problems with any of my other internet games like counter-strike etc!

True. I have the same problem. The best suggestion is that if you can still return the game then do it. Its not worth the annoying problems that keep occuring. I might also recommend going onto smaller servers and avoiding any Titan servers.
