Default BFV Multiplayer Trouble

Hi

when i play BFV multiplayer i get kicked off all the time for reasons like "offensive name etc" but my name is just like cantona or just player.

also when you choose a game to join it has a ping rate...i have a broadband 256k....what would be the ping on a game should i be joining? eg500, 400 etc

Thanx

i play call of duty, and used to have problems with punkbuster, which is what kicks you i think.
go to the forum for the game and see if you can pick up on anything you might need to download.
you may need to update your punkbuster.

look for the lowest pings u can find, below 100 is usually very good, anything above typically lags in CSS and other on-line games, not sure of BF2 yet though
