i am having massive lag while trying to play online (vanilla BF2)

yet, when i hit tab, it shows my ping around 50-100 range. It lags like the ping was in the 300-999 range

Its not a matter of my system, i can play BF2 at the current settings just fine, and my internet connection is 16mb/2mb (down/up), but it usually tests around 2-7/1.5 (down/up).

I am going to call my ISP to see why the down speeds are less than half of the advertised speeds, but even with that, i shouldnt get this lag

Turn off any other programs that might be taking up bandwidth.

This seems simple, but I had a friend who was complaining about really laggy online play with CS, and he blamed me because I set up Steam and CS for him, but it turns out that he just had bittorrent in the background.

If you can't seem to find anything taking up bandwidth, I've got a program called connected.exe (I can't seem to find it via google again), that shows all processes which are connecting/connected to the internet.

Ok...

A lot of people get Lag mixed up with Choppyness... or CN..

Now, LAG is when your connection to the server takes a while, like .4 of a second, causing you game to ...warp, Your walking, then BOOM, you back where you started, then you spam everywhere...

CN (or choppyness) is when you system has trouble processing your game, thus causing low framerates, moreless you just chop around, like in slow motion, it just moves frame by frame...

Now, if you internet provider is fast.. and you have low pings, then it is your system that is having trouble Processing your game... Turn your Graphic settings down..

not always true. internet lag does not always apply to ping, ping is just a way of measuring how 'strong' your connection is to the server and thus higher pings when the server is further away and ure connection is not so stable. Internet lag can also happen because the server is having problems, u got a bit of packet loss, or bandwith is being lost-say if u have a shared connection. Firstly make sure you setting in bf2 under connection is 256k and above not T1 as this requires more bandwith and shud only be used in Lan games or really really good connections like a t1 fibre optic

No it isnt his Gcard, i had the same card and it ran BF2 perfectly..

Well, a ping is milliseconds... 64 ping is .064 seconds.. 100 ping is 0.1 second..

and a 1000 ping is one second lag..

So moreless that is how fast the information is being sent.. so, any higher then 100 is bad, even a 100 is bad..

hey, I didnt really take time to read though all the replys because im in a hurry so if someone suggested this already then sorry. But for sure do a virus scan. I have that same problem every once in a while and a virus scan will always fix it for me. hope it helps
