    Unhappy Do i need to Open Ports for COD 4 (Getting Very High Ping) Please Help

    Have just purchased COD 4 and loving it, apart from the online gaming side as its not running very smooth....

    I am getting about av 200ping which is piss poor in my eyes? What ping do you get or consider to be a playable and smooth Ping for online play?

    Is there any thing i can do to help lower my ping? Like open up ports on the router? Change settings any where?

    I am also using a static IP address, not sure if that makes ping any better or not?

    If you have any bright ideas then I'm grateful for your time and Posts....

    Cheers

    do my a favour.

    Ping www. bbc.co.uk and tell me what you get.

    I'm off to bed at 1:00am or when my laptop battery runs out, what ever comes first.

    thats very odd.

    Maybe its the server you connect to. I was assuming it was your connection.

    port forwards are only needed if hosting games or the games directly connect to each other to send data. nowadays its usually done through a middle man which is the server. its probably the server you chose.

    Re: Do i need to Open Ports for COD 4 (Getting Very High Ping) Please Help

    Humm i had tried 3 -6 severs last night and all had high Ping apart from 2 so i guess it was just the server i was playing on. As the 2 servers that did not have high ping , i was getting 45-55 ping, which is more like it

    Cheers All for the Help!

    Any of you lot play COD 4 online? or does Hexus have a COD 4 clan?

    I get poor lag in CoD4.

    On games like CSS it's from 6ms to the teens, but in CoD it's anywhere between 65 - 130
