    To get a decent ping your internet speed must be at least 256k. If you're having ping problems then turn off any downloads and open web pages.

    I think he means

    cl_cmdrate 1

    Which will reduce your ping to 5, but also lag out the server.

    what? no he means this post is useless thus the spam and lacking effort cause all he typed was how do i get lower ping.
    BUT, if you want lower ping go look for tutorials, type rate 30000, cl_cmdrate 100, and cl_updatetrate 100 into console. also a better connection helps out as well.

    You are an idiot. It will not lag the server. It will lag the client. Really think about what you say. How could someone lowering how much information they download from the server possibly lag it?

    I am not an idiot. Try it with some friends, get 4 or 5 of you to join a server with that command, within 5 mins of you joining people will be complaining that the server is lagging. I know that you would think it would lag the client (although apparently not) it seems the server over-compensates, or something.

    You cannot low ping. It is impossible. Your ping is dependant upon your internet bandwidth and your distance from the server.
    If you have any downloads or uploads active you should close them to free up bandwidth to get the most out of your connection to the server.

    I've tried and tried on dedicated servers with plenty of bandwidth. Nothing a client can do can lag the server unless they start fucking about with entities.

    The command they are talking about is 'cl_cmdrate'. Lowering it masks your ping but does not prevent the ping kicker from picking you up and booting you.

    changing your rates in the config files will lower your ping, but only artificially, you will not receive less lag.

    With your ping being around 300, I'm assuming that you're on dial-up internet? If that's the case, you can't play CS:S, unless you get a better internet.

    Ping is dictated by your internet speed and distance from the server. Basically, playing on a server closer to you with a fast internet connection will see you getting low Ping. Personally, I get 5 in CSS with rates of 20000 45 45 and I only use servers located in Europe, or better the UK (where I live).

    Changing your rates will do minimal difference to your Ping, they are usually about making your experience as smooth as possible for your connection speed.

    Bascially, if you want low ping, play on a server located closer to you or get a faster internet connection (which doesn't effect it that much once you get faster than 2mb).

    Don't be stupid that's like me going I want to play on this server which has a Latency of 99999 then I complain that it lags WTF? Just play servers which are near you why does it make a difference, play on ones with like 40- latency. Either that or tough luck I don't see how that's STEAM's fault.

    No you can't change your ping, it depends on your connection, what type it is and sometimes if the server is near you. The commands only give you an artificial rate anyway.
