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?
