I had the same prob a couple of months back, and it took me ages to work out the culprit. After changing router, cables, PC's, reinstalling COD and UO, I finally discovered it was my NIC causing the trouble (I connect over a LAN, so I don't know if this is relevant). Now despite my web connection being fine for web browsing, my NIC just couldn't cope very well with online games, and I ended up gettin kicked with the same error message about every 10 mins!! Man it did my head in!! Anyway new NIC problem solved. :)

Like i said I have no idea if you even connect over a Network, so it may not work for you. If that's the case I suggest you either try another modem and/or ring your ISP and get them to test your connection.

100 kbs IS slow. It isn't even bb speed. PB is very particular since the new version came out in January. The PB INNIT FAILURE is one of the kicks that it does for bad network (i.e. busy networks). The other is packet lose. Basically PB can't track you very well if your connection isn't at least 512 kbs.
