I use the 8ta and i have been playing Battlefield 3 online for ages with no issues ,
Ever since about 4 weeks ago i constantly get disconnected.

I have reloaded windows, updates drivers, opened ports, reloaded punkbuster.
I also noticed half the servers show no ping.

any suggestions?

Only one - Get rid of 8ta. Probably getting lost packets. I also used to play on 8ta 10gb promo, was fine for the 1st 18 months of the contract, then it went all pear shaped. Lots of lag, disconnects, etc.

I canned that contract and got 1mb ADSL uncapped. So much better now.

ADSL FTW

They show no ping, because its to high. Congested tower maybe? Thats normally what happens to me. Your ping might show in game but you get lag?
Do a speed and ping test. I dont care about the speeds, more a stable ping.

This. Wireless and gaming don't mix, especially in this country.

My friend plays with 3G just fine....
Yes 3g does work, but it is a whole different kettle of fish when using 8ta. That is why I left them and even the Network Engineers were concerned the way the whole network was going after LTE was introduced. I had many a fight with 8ta and they could never fix the problem.
