:furious: icon8.gif Warning! Connection problems Detected

*Sigh* I've been trouble shooting this too long now... EVERY server I enter I get this message: Warning! Connection problems Detected

Soon after I get booted. No background programs running. The meter says to my ping is around 30-100 depending on server...yet I still appear to ping out. What is going on??? I just got done reformatting and reinstalling windows....sigh....

Both the original Battlefield 1942 and Secret Weapons installed w the latest 1.5 update patch.

HELP!!!

Heres my specs:

2500+ Athlon XP (barton core) overclocked to 2ghz (and running under 100 F)

512 3200 CL 2.5 DDR Corsair

128 DDR Radeon 9000 Saphire (with most recent video card drivers)

WinXP w/ SP1

30gb HD (OS and games installed on), smaller 8gb for misc storage

SoundBlaster Audigy (1) card

56k Faxmodem (used for, well, faxes)

ASUS motherboard (w/ Via333 chipset and latest BIOS installed) Intel Pro lan card 10/100

Comcast Cable internet, benchmarks show from 1-1.6 mb rates

Hi Renshai,

How long can you stay around before you get booted! Is it almost immediately, or 15min, half hour etc? There is a long section on this problem in the sticky section, I suggest you read through that.

From what you have said, however, it looks as though this isn't a problem with your PC at all, which of course leaves your cable modem and your service provider, but a couple of tests will clear that up.

Do you have a friend who has cable/ADSL who will allow you to cart your box around and test it on his connection? Also contact your provider if you haven't done so already, they may actually be blocking the ports that BF needs to play over the internet.

Give those two a go and let me know what happens.

Good luck

It happens almost immediately, within 5 seconds to 1 minute. I'll try the other options...I can haul my machine to a local college to try (friends there have had success). About the ISP, what ports would i ask them about?

I'm using ethernet cable... Just talked with a Comcast tech. Tried to ping their website and i have from 25%-100% packet loss (varies with pings). Appears i have a ISP problem... The tech thought it might have to do with a bad gateway. This sound valid for those of you that know more of such things?:micro:

Do have a 'download manager' running? Perhaps ***** or another fileshare programs? Try simple things first! Do you have your bandwidth adjustment in the game options set to the right setting ( eg. 56K/ISDN/DSL-CABLE/T1 )?

A download manager or file sharing program running wouldn't result in packet loss from a test by his ISP, but it certainly would result in a problem with BF. Because BF is sensitive to arrival order (see my sticky here http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=88382 about the reason for that), unlike normal internet browsing, it can't request a resend of dropped packets and will disonnect if the level of dropped packets is too high.

Good luck
