Battlefield 2 problem!

At random times in Battlefield 2 I keep getting a "There is a problem with your connection" error box pop-up and then I have to exit the game! The connection is fine straight afterwards as I can play Guild Wars, surf, email or whatever without having to re-connect. Example, I've just had a three hour session which was perfect, then out of the blue that message pops up and I've just posted this here without re-conecting! Earlier it occured straight away as I entered a map!

This only happens in BF2, I only ever go on servers with pings of 70 or less and the game plays superbly until this message pops-up!

It's bloody infuriating as today this as cost me two promotions and and a plethora of medals!

Anyone esle having this particular problem? If so, have you had it rectified?

Have you already tried the developers website for info on possible problems caused by the game itself? Maybe you're on 8mb with interleaving on hence PL and then that message? I dunno I'm just throwing things around.

Yeah, EA customer support say that it's a problem with my ISP and therefore out of their remit.

As for 8MB and interleaving, don't get me started on that topic. I put in for a regrade que-jump, didn't get regraded and then found found out that my mate, whom I refered to +net after me, is enjoying his 8MB line. So I can definately rule that out as my modem is synching at 2.2MB as alway's and the connection is rock solid as always.

I feel your pain on both fronts.

I too have had ridiculous connection issues with BF2 recently although +net have failed to remedy this (or even acknowledge there is an issue!). So much for an ISP who allegedly provide a service "Ideal for online gaming"....maybe....so long as its solitaire!!!!

The 8Mb line issue is another sore point for me. I too have signed up for the queue jump but prior to that a referral of mine was upgraded to Max and is working away at stupidly fast speeds.....I aint a happy bunny thats for sure!

Come on +net......extract the pinky from the stinky and lets get these issues sorted!

I play BF2 on the PS2, before and after MaxDSL being enabled (I have interleaving too), I have had some days where I get those error messages with the EA servers.

Not all of the servers are owned by EA you know, more often than not it will be a problem with them if you're just joining any old ranked server. but yea i get this sometimes too, if it happens i move off and try another server, sticking to servers that have a low overall ping themsleves.
