    Strong signal but trouble in BF2

    Which one is were the connection says "Excellent" and "Very Good"? That's what it always reads at. I'm at work now so I'm not sure about the latency/ping to the server. She's noticed it on several servers and hasn't had this issue with the wired comp downstairs yet.

    Strong signal but trouble in BF2

    I have 4 or 5 out of 5 bars on my comp hooked up wirelessly. When my gf plays the BF2 demo she's complaining about yellow text saying connection problems when she's firing or fighting someone. Help me get her to stop whining.

    Do the current Xbox 360's have any of the early problems/issues?

    Great, thanks guys. I've been out of the loop for a while as I was moving and finding a job so I appreciate the help. How about the wireless controllers? I have a ceiling projector and it'd be easiest to put the xbox to my right side as opposed to in front of me like most people. I'm just...

    Cat 5 wired house questions

    I took the cover off one of the outlets on the wall in one of the rooms and it's a blue cord going to the ethernet input. I was just surprised that the brown and brown/white wires aren't attached to it but maybe those aren't required for broadband? I believe that grey cord is the phone wire...

    Cat 5 wired house questions

    Thanks for the replies :) I still haven't got it to work yet though. I went coaxial > cable modem > router > patch panel. My patch panel is labeled 0-9 with 0 at the top. I plugged the router into spots 9 and 6 and neither worked. I'm not sure what I need to do.I took off one of the cat5 outlets...

    Cat 5 wired house questions

    Here is an image of the box. I tried going cable > cable modem > router > panel, but I didn't get it to work. I connected the router to the panel by cutting off the cat5 head and running it through the leads on the bottom input. I haven't installed any software.

    Cat 5 wired house questions

    I'm all moved into the house so I have access to everything now. The wiring system is a Square D SDM18bw. I'm not sure how to set it up. There's this panel that has a bunch of cat5 lines connected to it. Spots 0-6 are already connected up. It looks like cat5 with each individual wire plugged in...

    Cat 5 wired house questions

    The wall outlets are cat 5, telephone, and cable in all the rooms. Do I need a hub or router? Would I just put a cable modem and router/hub in my closet and hook it up to the access panel in the closet? And finally, if the den is going to have 2 computers in it, how do I go about hooking...

    Cat 5 wired house questions

    My new house is wired for cat 5 and I was wondering what the benefits of this are. There's a panel in the master closet that is supposed to connect into it. I'm wondering if I can get a cable modem and maybe a router and wire the whole house in different rooms to plug into the cat 5 wall...

    I need a new game. Any MMOs out there that don't suck, or eat your life?

    I've given up on MMO's. I first started with Ultima Online back in 1997. Then went through eq, daoc, wow, etc. I had a lot of fun with UO and wow was pretty cool but I just find MMO's so damn boring nowadays. As MMO's got more popular they started all becoming the same.

    WOW PVE vs PVP server's ??

    PVP servers allow non-consenual PVP with people from the other realm. There are still noobie zones so you can level up a bit before being thrown into it. I prefer PVP servers personally because they're more interesting and keep you on your toes. On the regular servers you never have to worry...

    EB games/Gamestop need to be banned/class action lawsuit needs to be addressed

    No I'm saying they went and used his and everyone elses money for 6 months in their own corporation and made money off it. They basically tricked all of these people into giving them free capital with 0% interest. It's not fair and it's shady.

    EB games/Gamestop need to be banned/class action lawsuit needs to be addressed

    Don't get me wrong, I think that guy is a total douche but you obviously don't understand the time value of money. They held his money and got to use that as capital for their company and make money with it for 6 months. He gets nothing in return.

    EA should lower their game prices ...

    I rented the new Madden and hated the new pass system. I went back to SEGA's 2k and play it online.

    EA should lower their game prices ...

    I agree. All I want is a good football game for this season. Of course I can't get that because EA split SEGA's flesh pillows with a giant skin totem.

    How did FEAR get such a great rating? Alternate view: 7 (Mini-review inside)

    The poor overall quality of games we're being fed just makes the decent ones receive higher marks than they would have before.

    NFS Most Wanted = Amazing :|

    I read a preview a while back that said the cops weren't as aggressive as they were in hot pursuit. That annoyed me so I haven't really followed it since cause I thought the cop's complete insanity and total disregard for their own safety as well of those of the townspeople made the game.

    Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory

    Man I loved this game. It was a free download too :eek: . Does anyone know if anyone still plays this? I might go ahead and get it installed on this computer. Unfortunately I don't think you can get it to do widescreen but this game was better than most of the new stuff imo, plus it was...

    Battlefield 2 Worth buying?

    Well BF2 is modern technology, not WW2. I'm sure you know that though and just got it confused with BF1942. But I agree, neither of those two appear to offer anything new. You're mostly paying for more polygons over the previous ones. Not innovation.

    Just played XBOX 360, The graphics BLOW!

    When I went to try the 360 it looked like what happens if I play games on my LCD outside of the native resolution. Like when you have it stretch and it gets all blocky. It definitely looked like it wasn't set up correctly. Graphics don't seem to be advancing as rapidly as years ago...

    Civilization 4 questions

    I'm thinking of picking this up today and I've got a few questions.. I've never played any of the other Civs before. Does it move like Warcraft/AOE where you and your opponent move simultaneously or more like X-COM? If like X-COM then how does it manage how much you can do before it's the...

    Having second thoughts.....

    It's the standard 4:3. In widescreen it's about 29 inches viewable. Circuit City has a 30" wide for a similar price atm. So you'd gain 1 inch on widescreen stuff but lose 2 on all your 4:3 stuff. Sort of a toss up imo.
