ok for the past WEEK!!! my ping has been through the roof. my usualy ping is around 200 to 250. it may be high for you all maybe but for me. this is average BS i have to put up with while living in asia. ok so for the past week all the servers on COD4 read about 170 as the lowest. so i choose the lowest but once i get in the game it shoots up to like 230. then after a few minutes of playing my ping sky rockets to 600 to 999. i keep getting my ass kicked because i fire too many times or when i go into cover i log a foot back into the open. how do i fix this?
My ping in Dawn of War yesterday was 999. I'm serious. My friend couldn't join the game.
but that was for what, like 1 day. my has been like this for the entire week.
That's the thing, I don't know if it was for one day. I haven't bothered to check.

Try calling your ISP about it?
what do you mean by calling my ISP?... whats ISP?
ISP = Internet Service Provider.
You know, the company or business that you get your internet service from.
Yeah thats alot of ping alright.Whenever I get trouble I never call my ISP,they never give me help,so I always go to the guys who make my broadband box,in my case its Linksys and they are just amazing for help.
well, you don't need to download porn while playing online! now serious, are you having filefront.com open cos if you close all applications with internet connection your ping will lower. (worked for me) It can also be that another computer is connected to the the network (if you have 2 pc's) Hope it will lower your ping at least 100
ok, downloads and filefront. are done on my laptop. all my gaming is done on another computer. even with nothing going on in the background, or with the other PC not in use. i still get the same results. ill take desavio's idea and call the linksys guys. do you have their number?
