Keep getting kicked from servers :(

I have had bf2142 since it came out and I have started playing it again about a week ago. For the past few days I have been kicked from servers after about 5 min of gameplay for losing key packets. I was reluctant to make this thread but I feel that I have no where else to go. I have googled for solutions for days, reinstalled the game twice, updated and reinstalled punkbuster countless times, turned off my firewall and yet I still get kicked. So if you know how to fix this please tell me.

    If your running it through steam PB will kick you. Found that out today, if your not running it through steam (as a non steam game) then i cant help you. This applies to all games that use PB unless the game was purchased from steam...

    I'm not running it through steam and I remember having this problem before but i forgot how I fixed it. I haven't played 2142 in probably 6 months until now.

    I had the same problem, i did some editing to the key with regedit, but that was a long time ago, search up Punkbusted for no reason in google, should get you your answer.

    I didn't find anything useful. I have googled this for a week now with no results. Oh well... I am planning on reformatting my computer in the near future so maybe it will work after that.

    As I have already said I have uninstalled, reinstalled and updated pb more times then I can count so something else is causing this problem.

    I tried running it through steam and it let me play for an entire round but once the next round started i got kicked. This is really starting to piss me off and apparently there is no way to fix it...

    That's what I mean when I said I updated PB it doesn't fix it.

    I reinstalled the game and reupdated pb (just like you said) and it lets me play one round but when it changes maps or goes to the next round i get kicked after 5 minutes.

    I think that happened to me when I played BF2 as a normal user. Try running it as an administrator.

    The only problem with that is I don't know the administrator password cause I didn't set it my brother did and he doesn't remember.

    Fraps has been know to cause issues with recent versions of Punkbuster, I get kicked for CoD:WaW if Fraps is running.

    So if you use Fraps, turn it off while playing and see if that helps.

    I don't use fraps. I think I sort of fixed it. I played for a few hours last night and only got kicked once.

    lol you dont upsate pb itself. you open the client and have to add bf 2142 to its game list and update the bf 2142 pb.

    He knows! God damnit.. You have posted the same thing (not same words, but same message) a hundred times, stop it now please:p

    And for your problem, I'm sorry, I can't help you. I remember I once had some trouble with BF2142, but it eventually got solved and I forgot what the problem was and how I solved it, but I remember that it was PB who was causing trouble.

    Patched to the latest version? Sucks that EA is such a mess to get what you want. I still can't find EADM on their site.
