I just got my cable internet just a few hours ago.....so i started up COD and was having fun at a 23 ping....but the gameplay was very shaky and laggy, yet my ping was very low......anyone know why?? and it also happened in CSS and the BF2 demo
might be choppy because of your computer if its not good enough
no...its good enough, never had gameplay problems before
I have cable and it happens sometimes when I play in Asian and sometime European servers.
Cable is a shared pipeline. Got anyone living right nearby?
yeah, its in an apartment building.....but not many people have internet in the building, and i just did a speed test 3.3mb a second
First, there's no guarantee that your building is the only address on the line, and speed tests don't give you much useful information on pings (only that a connection was esablished and x amount of data can be pushed through during a given period of time). Yes, low speeds can be caused by packetloss, but high speeds alone don't mean that all packets are getting through. If it goes away "on it's own", then I'd wager that you've got someone else eating mad amounts of bandwidth. If it keeps up, then the problem is probably on your end.
