Beautiful Dreamer, The average ping on Exede is just over 700 milliseconds. Most action games will not play well, because of the lag between you pressing an action and the game server receiving it. This latency is just a matter of physics, since the satellite is 22,500 miles from the earth's surface. You may find the games you play to work just fine with this delay, but there will be some games that won't work. Some of the servers the games use may even deny connections if the latency is higher than what they feel is acceptable.

Quake Live was the first game I found to not play at all.  It just jerks your character around a little bit and you are dead without knowing who or what is going on, while it says Connection interrupted over and over.  Borderlands 1 even converted to Steamworks doesn't work too well, when BL2 and Pre sequel work a lot better for some reason with Steamworks.  You still have to use weapons like the Ravager, Flakker, Fragnum/Herold , etc with some spread to hit the enemies sometimes.  SMGs are a little harder if the enemy doesn't hold still and is in flight.   Portal 2 made for weighted storage cube drops being hard, so everyone wanted to host and me join.  As you'll find with most games when you have sat.  (Everyone wants you to join them, unless you need direct one time help (Like killing a boss)).

Thanks, your beautiful, Beautiful.
Had to get that in. 

What Steve said is spot on. It's a shame the installer did that, but we are all human.
I am sure Kimberly will help getting you fixed up.

Post back when the tech is done so we all know everything is OK.

Alex thank you for your post. As i scanned over the list of games i can say this much that i am able to play with anyone that's on my ally list just fine too. However again i can't enter a game on my on in the multiplayer mode. It's strange to me. I mean I'm not a dummy by all means i understand what every one has told me about all the factors. Anyways the sole reason for my purchasing the satellite was solely for gaming. I'm not upset i just wanted everything to be smooth in this digitally enhanced world we live in. Thanks again have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU!! PEACE
