      bf2142 probs??

      Hi,

      I have read the treads and Sky have lowered my max delay to 8. Also they capped my line to 7meg to stabilise and changed me from adsl2 to g.dmt.
      All good.
      The only problem is I still cant play BF2142 on line. When I load it only gives me 5 servers and when I log on to one..I get kicked straight away?
      I have a PS3 and have no problems playing on-line with it. I connects and multi-player games run without a hitch (fall of man and fight night)
      I haven't tweaked the PS3 in any way no port forwarding ,no router tweaks just connected and away I went.
      The PC on the other hand is performing dismally. When I was with NTL the server list was hitting the high 400's!


      Any help please!


      I have posted my router stats in the relevant forum to see if its a software problem

      look forward to any replies!!

      Cheers

      Jam

      Are you sure you haven't ticked a filter on the search, IE. you are only searching for unsecured ( non punkbuster servers ) of which there are very few?

      As for getting kicked, check your pc for spyware etc, punkbuster will kick ya if your machine has problems in that department also run "memtest86" and check you have no memory problems again this can result in punkbuster kicks. I am assuming that you have the correct patch installed.

      I can only give you a little advice as I stopped gaming a while ago but these are all valid reasons for your current problems, im sure there are a few more im forgetting.

      Perhaps a post on the forums of BF2S.com might help you out too.

      As andyl says check your server filters.
      As for getting kicked straight away I think this is "the first connect bug". It does it to me every time I try to connect to any server, works ok 2nd time round tho and connects straight away. Dont know if theres a fix for it and havnt bothered looking as so used to doin it twice now.
