O.k i may only have a 56k modem but when i play multi player
i never get a good connection in a good game, but when i do get a good connection there's either the fact that everyone starts loggin off, or there's a few players, but their either no good or the map is to big to find them.

Don't try to remedy that problem with a satellite. Satellite sucks for pretty much everything except surfing the net.

I know, I've installed one and it was BAD. BAD like this patch. That bad.

How do i get a lower ping rate then?

Well you could try lowering your rate, just go into your console and type Rate. It will say what # it is, should be 4000, just make it 1000, that might help a little.

What ever you do, don't turn your rate down to 1,000. That's 1kps and you'll lag even worse.

For a 56k line, set the rate to 3000, or 3kps. That's slightly less then the avg speed a 56k line gets. I did it on my PC (I run a 56k too.) and it lowered my ping by like 200ms.
