Hey, I have a problem. I go to play bf1942, get into a game for about 10-15 minutes, then I get a huge lag spike (like a 1-3 minutes long) and i get force disconnected. A message pops up usually saying Disconnected from server. My settings seem to be optimal for my machine, i have them set on low but still get a bit of choppyness, skipping, etc... I have comcast High speed internet and live in MN so i dont think its my internet. This happens on all servers I play on. I have a Gforce4 64m MX440-SE graphics Accelerator, 448 mb of RAM, Pentium 3 processor, windows 98, and 7 GB of free disk space (14 G hard drive). I hope somebody can help me, thanks for your time AsTrO P.S. I Did read the sticky and played around with the settings a little but that didnt work...

ill reply with a usless reply lol.......

i have simpify for u mate i had / have had the same problem..... but for the last couple of days i have not been getting disconnected, touch wood...... this is how i fixed it

i presume that u got broadband..... if so what type ? BT / Blueyonder? external modem??? that plugs into network card? or plug into cable modem? few more details would be nice :)....

anyways if u have a external modem that u would norammly get with bt/ blueyonder then i presume that u plug it into the usb at the back of your pc...

when u first installed the software that your isp gave u... did it have drivers on the cd to install the modem with???????... if it did and u plugged the modem in ,, then installed the drivers then this is where i suggest u do summit different, (what i did)>.. now do these steps........

(before doing these steps search in www.google.co.uk for your usb modem drivers... for example my modem was a blueyonder surfboard 4200 so i searched in google and then download some drivers for my modem) 1) unplug your usb modem from pc 2)go into device manager via control panel and right click on your network card / modem under network adapters....... 3) uninstall the drivers... (click uninstall) 4)clck on install drivers.... and make sure windows installs the drivers that u just downloaded... 5) once the obove is done.. click on bf1942 and select connection speed as ADSL or whatever... not isdn, 56, or t1-lan......

see if that works..

if this doesnt work try disabling windows firewall by right click on the connection vai network connections and un--check the box for firewall....

if u also have a firewall installed... try disabling this whilst playing the game.....

hope this helps.. well it did for me anyway....

let me know how u get on mate and if it works.. its good to talk... if it doesnt work give me a few more details.. and ill try to help more.......

im, not the greatest techinical support person mate lol... but.... if u click on control panel / system / device manager...

click on network adapters panel so that u can see what adapters windows has reconized.....

for example myne shows

ethernet adapter (my network card_ Surfboard 4200 modem (my modem :))..

if u find out the modem make....... in device manager.. then try to download some drivers for it... if not try using the windows drivers that are recomment .. right click on adapter.... install drivers.. then it will do this automatically...

On your actual modem mate ave a look at it!!! it should show the make of modem and the type of modem....

more detials again plz mate helps..... u with BT ??? Blueyonder??? outside uk??????? it all helps for people to help u out mate...

but yeah do what i said in the first place.. it cant go any worse can it!

Try selecting a connection type one lower that what you actually have. So if you actually have cable, try using the ISDN setting. That's what I use & I rarely get disconnected.

Have you tried reseting your modem? If not? turn off computer, unplug it & wait one minute, plug it back in, wait for it to sync up & reboot. Sometimes they just get a bit confused. :D
