      High Ping!!!

      Hi,

      For some odd reason i recently noticed (about 3 days ago) that i was getting strange high pings on UK Servers on Call of Duty 2 Multiplayer and noticed it happens on Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare aswell...this has only happened recently but i dont know how to fix it.

      Normally i have an extremely good ping on UK Servers...generally around 20-35 at a max of 50. Ive even reached a 2 ping on a UK Server

      But for some reason now its normally around 70-95 but on some UK Servers it has reached 135 ping..even though on one UK Server ive kept my normal 19 ping!

      Whats going on!? It's not my computer..its not the game...its not my router bla bla bla, i know its something to do with Sky Broadband.

      I've tried re-installing the game, and ive tried turning the modem off for 30 mins then back on but nothing has worked..i run hardwire so its not because i have wireless.

      No idea whats going on...never had this problem before and been playing the game for 2 years.

      Some help please would be appreciated as this is extremely annoying!

      It's on almost every UK Server on Call of Duty 2 and Call of Duty 4 so its on every game i play...its not the server.

      I've seen other topics saying they are getting high pings on UK Servers..im pretty sure its something to do with Sky...i just want a solution!

      not to take the mick - but how about actually go out? i just don't get gaming - so unsociable!!!

      best thing is to call Sky (or email them) and get to CST and get your delays reduced if you haven't already...

      also, stats stats and more stats also help as it could very well be your end...just cause you've not changed anything doesn't mean it doesn't go wrong!
