I have 56k and i don't get to much ping i am in england and i clear everything from base including maps,saves, leaving only the folders and files that are needed to play the game.

I close as many programs as possible on the start menu and of course i close all windows before attempting to play the game.

I get different amounts of ping depending what programs the admin has open and what programs i have open i also have different pings depending on where the server is based.

make sure you correct all of that before playing or it will most likely be high.

I mostly get between 400 and 600

I do get 999 on some which have locations that make me lag and i somtimes still have programs running at the same time.

I have had 0 - 1 once when my bro did somthing to the settings but gradually it got higher and higher the more i played until i just started closeing everything even now it still lags.

but it shows the pings of the servers which i did'nt before.:)

Good luck

i think this might be of help... when you start the game... before you enter a server go and edit your vidoe options. Make them more low res and lower detail etc this will make the graphics not too great but should reduce your lag problems

Possibly. A friend of mine has AOL and a 56k modem. I have a 36.6k modem and SBC Yahoo! Internet and sometimes I get a lot better ping than he does. It might have to do with all the programs that run in the AOL Browser. You can also get a lot of lag from popups so you also want protection against that too.

Yes AOL is your reason. Ive got high speed aol and my ping has never been lower than 150..AOL is not game friendly in the least, I have no suggestions other than get a different ISP.
