okay, after all the hype, i've gotten halo for my computer. i'm in college, in a dorm room, so i'm not sure what type of connection i have. the first week or two of playing online was absolutely awesome...i'm hooked. which is why i'm so desperate right now... about a week ago, my connection in the multiplayer games went down the shoot. i'm now pinging as high as over 2000!!!!!! when i do a "get list" for multiplayer, its only bringing up between 20-40 servers, where as i used to find over 200. once i click to "connect" to one, the first thing that happens is it says: "negotiating connection to server"...the it has to retry the connection a few times before it lets me through. once i get in though, that little bad-connection icon in the lower left hand side of the screen flashes constantly, throwing my player all over the screen making everything really really jumpy. other players constantly complain about my extremely high ping. how is my ping over 2000??????? and how did this all happen all of a sudden? if anybody can help me out, PLEASE do!!! i need multiplayer! this is sooo frustrating!!! i'll be forever in your debt!
