I didnt know if i should put this in the gaming section or the internet, but i have a USB cable modem that i have had no problems w/ on an Epox 8kta anbd 800 mhz duron. anyway in q3 clan arena i used to ping like low 60's but recently it has been high 80's. is this my internet connection or the server or what? is there anytihng i can tweak t o get my low ping back?

80 ms is still a pretty good ping. on some CS servers i play on the pings ocasionally shoot up to dialup pings :(

if it's the same as here in aus. then when they put more ppl on the same connection as u it slows down a bit. you can try ringing your provider and ask to be put on a less crowded line (I did it with Optus and Iwent back to 34ms on sof 2) but in saying that its still a pretty good ping just the same.:laugh:
