  • BF2 Wireless Lag problem solved

    Anybody here who plays Battlefield 2 on a Wireless Router, who's been having problems with lag. I've found a solution to cure it. Well it has for me anyway!

    I was searching all over Google and have seen that loads of people have the same problems when playing BF2 on a wireless connection, anyway I found this site and followed what they say do. And now my lag has gone completly playing on my wireless router, we before it was bad.

    http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Wirel...s-t101910.html

    Is is the quote on what to do:

    Since this problem occurs in set intervals, I'm going to hazzard a guess and say that it is the [COLOR=#1b3b7c! important][COLOR=#1b3b7c! important]Wireless[/color][/color] Zero Configuration service that is casuing the problem (searching for alternate networks every few minutes), resulting in lag spikes.

    So, what I'm going to suggest is that you allow WZC to establish a connection to your network, and then actually disable it -- this will let us know if it's WZC causing the issue.

    Once you have established a connection, goto Start --> Run --> type services.msc and press OK --> Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration (it'll be at the bottom), right-click and select Properties --> Click Stop -- wait for the service to stop, and then click OK. Now, try that ping again; do you still recieve lag spikes? Also, just try to play your game.. Do you still experience the lag spikes in game?

        Not much you can teach me in BF2, been playing it on and off for two years. Anyway I'm a "Jet" expert. Only way to play it! Once I get in a jet I lead the leaderboard for kills!!

          I heard about the Jet Whores in BF2. And I have seen Youtube Videos where 10+ people are waiting at the Jets spawn point to get it. It looks retarded. Though I had fun playing BF2 in Single Player. And you are going to hate me, but I am a BF2142 player.

            I was going to blame the lag issues on bandwith limitations between your computer and your access point. Weak signal

              I don't even bother playing on maps with vehicles. Waste of time.

                  I think I've seen that jet video. I know what you mean when you say jet whores, but when you learn to fly them proper with ease like I can, seriously, if you want the kills and to look good. It's the only way to play it. The only downside is you always try to avoid playing the side of the US and instead choose the Japs, they have the best jets.

                  No, I used to play that before BF2, BF2 is the same game really, but with better graphics. I bought the latest one though (unless you mean you play that), that stupid futuristic version of BF. What a load of rubbish that is - I give it away it sucked that bad. To some person for his little lad.

                  Na, Im on a 10gig connection here. Plus the game played fine when not using the wireless router. And the router is an exspensive Belkin one with the largest range. So that shouldn't be an issue, so I always knew it had something to do with either the game or the ISP. That I posted above has solved it now. I get no lag at all.

                  You would most likely beat me on foot in ground warfare. Not that good really. I tend to use the sniper riffle, or use the anti-tank weapon. But I'm not really that half bad though.

                  Good job were not playing UT 2002 Edition though, I would kck ass in that.

                    Always had problems with Belkin products myself. I don't buy them. However unless it is MIMO based, you can receive interference from cell phones, 2.4 Ghz cordless phones, the microwave, wireless speakers, etc...
                    All depends on what channels you are using, what your building is constructed off (concrete and brick tend to reflect radio signals in this range) and other factors.

                    I had the worst lag when I moved into a new house last spring. The upstairs computer often had problems connecting. Was going to install an ethernet cable to the upstairs and then go wireless from there. However we installed a second computer with the same brand of card and now both computers get top notch connections. The two wireless cards are bouncing the signal between them and it creates a stronger connection. Still going to install an ethernet cable but it wait until I switch to Wireless-N.

                      It is a MIMO Belkin Router, the one thats black and comes with 3 arials. Well, doing what I said in the first thread has totally fixed the lag issue in BF2 for me, which was always there before. It's seems the Zero Configuration Utility always scans which causes the lag. Having followed the guide above to disable it.

                      Thats fixed my lag issues. But I do have the option I've just noticed to switch between using that or the software that comes with the router, however I still had lag swiching over that way - and still needed to use the run command to disable ZCU completly that way

                        HaHa Well yeah! I play that futuristic Battlefield. I thought it was crap in the beginning. But just because I was killed instantly all the time. I got used to it and am now the caretaker of my 2.2 K/D ratio. Too bad you gave it away, we could have played a round or two.

                          Germans? Are you playing the Point of Existence modification?

                          By the way, I suggest that you play the Project Reality modification. It is how Battlefield 2 should be made.
