Ok this problem keeps on occouring when I go on the internet for UT2004. Here is whats wrong. When I play on the internet like every 15 mins or so if I want it to or not it says connection lost. I have no idea why it keeps on happening to me and I though someone here could help me. Thanks in advance who helped!!!

Do any of your other games drop their connections?

No this is the only game that it happens on. And I tried restarting my modem but it still does it. How do you know if a server is next to you or not?

Take a look at the ping column in the serverbrowser list.
With ping till 100 server ain't too far.All european hosted servers servers for me.
With ping 100-150 with good ISP and pc u should have no problem.East coast servers for me.
Over 150 u sometimes loose connection,especially if server got a high firerate mut on, which requires a high cpu usage.

I live in belgium and on Swampland server with ping150,I fist get PL,then no beam when I shoot,trans doesn't work,difficulties to respawn.
Then ping increases,I can't respawn,connection lost.

A bit better with settings at low level and netspeed 7000/8000.
And turn off msn and all the apps which use the net.

yeah ...that could probably help out...and also dun download any stuff while online and playing UT.this slows connection. dun run LiveUpdate if you have Norton etc...what is your connection speed by the way?

Are you using a router?

The router is more than likely causing your connection drops.

Go to the manufacturer's website (Linksys, etc...), and upgrade to the latest firmware version for your hardware.

Should solve the problem.
