since it's happening only when playing online it's most likely ur internet connection. So yeah, what speed is it?

Yep! Expect a high ping and a slow game if you have a crap internet connection

what do u mean by "the game really plays wel on it"
In the 1st post u said that the game laggs and now u say it plays well on it?

And since it's broadband it should run fine. Try changing the firewall (u could just disable the one u have but I don't suggest being without a firewall) and see if it works.

no thats not the speed of the broadband line, the maxium speed that you can supposidly get now is 22mb and thats only if you live literally next door to the connection point. thats more like the speed of the line to the router/modem from your comp.

next question is do you have a router or a modem? if you have a router do you need to open any ports on it? do you have any firewalls thats blocking the connection? is this the first time youve played this game online before? is it like it with anyother games?

what anti-virus do u have?
Try AVG free or AntiVir personal, both are free (search google for download pages) and both are great. Though if u have some anti-virus that u payed for u most likely have to uninstall it before it lets u install any of these 2.

And as I said try a different firewall, or then mess with ur current firewalls settings.

have your in-game settings changed? i dont know about unreal T but for games such as btf 2 the in-game settings such as having to higher settings for your graphics cards to handle can cause lag type effects while playing online (which can obviously lead players to think its the line and not the settings).

also does ntl put any caps on your broadband speed at peak times? ive heard of some companies doing this but that was aong time ago. think most companies have put a stop to it now, after all you pay for a service so you expect to have that service not half of it!!!!!

use some spyware destroyers like ad-aware and spybot, plus the antiviruse software that the post above mentions. also try Avast viruse remover
