connection interupted= you are lagging to avoid this you can either find a server close to you/ in your country or get a better internet speed
I have a plenty good conection, better then most people, and the server is in my country. I have no spyware or anything else taking up bandwith. Someone on a server said something about packages being lost in the uplink or something like that.
One of many things to check is whether your internet package is checking for email while you are playing. This can be problematic if you are with AOL, cos u cannot turn off email checking to "on demand", and not "always on" like the broadband. -You could also start checking the events log in your firewall, any bottlenecks here can cause lag which can give you "connection interrupted".
The really big prob is when you get the "connection interrupted message and you are not even on line!. I have encountered this specifically when playing some custom maps off line with bots and I am blowed if I can stop getting the error. One in particular is SJCull's Far Cry of the jedi!
I get connection interrupted and I have got broadband
Ali, the point I am trying to make is that even if you have broadband, sometimes (AOL) your ISP runs lots of other stuff in the background without telling you, for example, checking for email continually and other stuff, all of which eat your bandwidth up.

Sometimes this happens if something else is using lots of CPU at the same time
