      Re: Bbc.

      Thanks , do you normally get higher pings in game or is this your average?

      Any more takers?

      If you are not sure how to do this follow the instructions below. (sorry if this sounds condescending it is not meant to be)

      Click start,progs,accessories,command prompt.
      When the black box appears type ping bbc.co.uk and hit enter. (or you can copy and paste it from here)
      When the test finished after a few seconds right click in the box select "select all" and hit enter.
      Paste the results in your reply here.

      Thanks in advance.

      Not a gamer I'm afraid. Think perhaps I should start though.

      The only problem then is you could not blame your pings if you were getting your ass kicked every game
