I Have got Broadband at 2.3mb whist playing SOF2 I keep losing connection :( and consequently killed can any anyone tell my how to lower my Ping ??
you mean like big lag spikes in the lag-o-meter? and how often does it happen? pb causes issues with connecting to the server sometimes, causing lag once every ~4-5 minutes. If so, look at the sof2 faq pages @ www.evenbalance.com.
also, it could be you having a wireless router/connection, as they aren't very stable sometimes.
but afaik, there aren't any ways to lower your ping, and also, your ping doesn't influence if you lose connection. i used to have a 28.8k 'broadband' connection (yes, i know :D ) and i had a very stable 200ms ping on most european server.
What is your RATE?
If you dont know what i am talking about, please type in console: rate [and then press your enterkey]
And are you behind a router and/or firewall (note: winxp has a build-in firewall)?? Maybe your connection gets (partly) blocked due this?
sould get a better internet connectoin that way youll get a better RATE
Getting discoed hasn't got anything to do with your ping, not in the mainline sense. Unless your ping is going well above the servers max ping. what is the ping you get when connecting to a server? Where are you located and the server you are trying to connect to located? What is the maximum rate of the server? Are you using win xp ? shut down all unecessary processes? have you run adaware, spybot, and defragged your pc ? how long has this been going on ? have you just installed the game ? or did you play fine before and now this started ?

One has absolutely nothing to do with the other. He has a 3.5 connection. Which means he has anywhere from 256-750 upload. The rate is dependant upon server processing. for most dsl connections the rate can be set as high as 20000, and cable-25000. Unless that is, the server you are playing on caps it at the norm of 10000. make sure you do a little homework.
