Oggy, can you try this to see if it fixes your problem: This is a solution for Losing Key Packets

For the last 3 days my Battlefield 2142's PunkBuster has been kicking me for "Losing Key Packets"...

I Updated PunkBuster - That didnt work...
I Reinstalled the latest patch - That didnt work...
I Reinstalled the entire game - That worked, but only for 1 launching of the game..


Well, today i figured out the problem...

If you Right click on "My Computer" > Manage > Services & Applications > Services > (Now look for 2 services PnkBstrA & PnkBstrB) Make sure they are not disabled and are started...

Note: If one or both of those are missing then you can download this program: http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe It will reinstall both services and fix the problem...

My BF2142 is now free of all PB kicks... w00t

I used to be really pissed at our connection which would just drop all the time without any warning and I'd see that I had no upstream connection and could not stay connected for long enough to get an ADSL port assigned. Turned out to be my modem/router... replaced it and all my connection issues went away (although I do have a monthly PB packet loss issue which is usually solved by doing a PB update).

When I opened up the old modem/router I could see some of the caps were bulging which is a sure sign of crap manufacturing. There was a bad period when the aluminium being used by the capacitor makers wasn't pure enough and over time they would break down. Seen this same problem on motherboards too.

Figured I'd menion it just in case it helps.

Just a thought on the routing, try using alternative nameservers in your router config, try the opendns ones - many isp nameservers are very slow and inefficient.

Since this was originally posted Oggy has sorted his problems. I think he switched to a different plan with his ISP and everything magically went away. Is that right Oggy?
