Ping Problems
« on: May 29, 2012, 03:29:45 pm »
So I've been having problems with BFBC2 and it's crazy ping for a while now,it was random at first but now it's all the time.

I only get it with BFBC2,my ping is fine on MOH,CSS,L4D and L4D2,it's usually at around 30-50 on servers that are close by or in central Europe but on BFBC2 it can go from 100 to 300 randomly.

I got a new hub installed today and it is exactly the same and it's not my internet speed as I have not had any problems before with that and it's a 30mb connection.

Anyone help a moron please who has no idea???     :\'( :\'( :\'(

Do I need to forward any ports on my router?

Hi Akai,

at BFBC2 you have to do like that:

Ping 120 : 3 = real ping 40.

Why your ping is between 100 and 300 I don't know, looks like that it is individual, what kind of software is running in the background of your PC, or what the reason was at my notebook, it was overheating.

I have no other software running apart from my anti virus and firewall ad they were not a problem before or with any other games.

I'm convinced it's this game and it hates me.

open a cmd window and type
ping -t 173.199.108.208

keep a eye on the Time Column, see if it fluctuates much.
watch it for 5 mins or so, then press crtl and c to stop it.

Yep it fluctuates up to around 130-145ms when its usually around 25-30ms it does it maybe after 10 or so normal ones a couple of times I had request timed out.


Then it stays normal for a while then goes again it's totally fucking random.

Do you do much torrenting?

Not as many fluctuations with that one  the highest was 101.


Nope haven't used torrents at all in ten years I've had a premium Rapidshare account for 4 years so no dodgy filesharing here.
