BF1942 Fluctuating ping ?

What modem do you have?

USB and PCI based modems draw power from the computer, then aditionaly draw a portion of the CPU to operate.

Instead of being self-contained devices, they are media converters. By changing the basic signal, to somthing that can flow to the CPU, at which point, thr CPU processed the connection.

This is CPU time that could be used for the game.

Just the otherway around, the game draws CPU that may be needed for the DSL.

BF1942 is quite cpu and gfx intensive, because of the sheer size of the maps. This requires you have a decent connection atleast. But even with a fast connection servers can be choppy. Like ppl have said get a router or an hardware adsl modem, this will help free your cpu up. And make sure you have changed your settings from modem -> dsl/cable within the game. Other than that, see what other ppls pings are to detirmin if the problem is the server or you, try staying away from 64 player servers and upgrade your PC if you can Smiley.
