  1. Tonight I played a couple rounds of MOH on my home network with my younger brother. As I am used to getting a ping of 1-10 I am now getting a ping of 40-50 which I dont think is normal. I turned off zone alarm on both computers. The last time we played I had the same router but since I have ugraded my wireless card from b to g. Is there any reason for the high ping I'm getting?

    Wireless + Split bandwidth between 2 = LAG :grinthumb

    Whichever PC requires the most amount of bandwidth from your network will get it. You might find that at different points of playing games, the ping rate will swap and your desktop may become faster than your laptop ... and vice versa.
