Kicked off the game or BB connection? Some games will kick those with too high ping rate and some servers will kick those with the highest rates to make room for clan members who own / run the server.

thanx for the comment Jester,i think the problem maybe my BB (Pipex) which is having a few problems at the moment,one thing i did notice is down on my tool bar at the bottom of my screen (XP Pro)a green box which said CPU 98% is this bad..? (while playing the game )

Think jester nearer the mark CPU usage will be higer than normal when online gaming but this shouldnt kick you unless the pc actually has an error more lickly the server you conected to is havin probs.

click here is very good for finding servers.

click here and run the tester (you may need to configure your firewall to become pingable) should give a rough idea what your connection is like.

a bit more info that might help, is that my "auto disconnect" comes up after about 20mins of online gameing....if i click on it i can carry on playing...does something need setting up i thought BB was 24/7....

The CPU is fine, when gaming mine runs at 100%, this makes no difference and will not kick you.

The disconnet, could be down to that server, some servers remove players after a set period of time to ensure they arent hogged,

Try another server ip and see if you get the same result..if so then its down to your bb.

You could also try another game to see if that happens.

When playing what ping do you get...

auto disconnect?? should not be an otion on broadband. go to control panel/internet options/connections/dial-up and remove the dialup connection.

i'm a bit of a newbie & don't really understand the PING thing, but on the game itself it says my PING is about 30ish....???
