the ping is not something you can set.
The ping is the time needed for an Internet packet to go from your computer to another computer, and come back to yours.
So to have a ping under 250ms, the most easy way is to play with people in the same region of the world than you. IE: Europe, if you live in Europe, South America if you're located there, etc..
But you still can do a few things to improve your ping :
- 1st, check you don't have any virus, trojan or malware that uses your PC to send thousand of emails per hour ( free antivirus : http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html
; and free anti-spyware : http://www.spybot.info
- turn off any download and upload program that may be running (www, ftp, P2P, etc...)
- if you play through Wifi, try to switch to LAN by using a line between your PC and your router
- when you host, be sure to have the Delay set to Auto
I just checked your IP, it seems you're from Australia, so you may want to contact the guys here :ftopic387.php
