      Help with ping

      Hello,

      I play call of duty 4 on my ps3 and am soon getting the same game for 360 but on my ps3 i get a 2bar connection if a american or someone with a low upload speed hosts, http://www.speedtest.net/result/272715440.png theres a link to a speedtest but i was uploading at the time but my normal upload speed is about 643kb/s but the ping is always between 80-110. is there anything i can do to improve? 4mb is the max download i can get but my upload is ok so im a bit puzzled

      does anyone know how i can make my connection better?

      Not sure what you are askin for, if its a better game experience then do a search for " max delays " - reducing them normally results in an improved ping.
      Router stats would help if thats not what your lookin for.

      Seriously - you aint gonna get a good connection to an american server - play on uk ones.
