its best if you have a high speed internet. such as 256k. around there. or else your going to get serious lag. a person with 56k on a good day gets 200+ ping which can greatly effect your playing. A person with cable (me) on a good day i get 50-80 ping. if the person lives near me. i get roughly 20-40 ping. so the faster the better. also it depends on your computer. the better video card and all that. the better.

56k is playable with a handful of people on the server, espsecially if everyone has set their rate correctly (most broadband users don't care, so they set it for maximum "grab").

If you play with more than 3 people, 56k can get very unreliable.

I've yet to play in many servers online thanks to 56k for the above options stated, but DSL should be fine.

If you have 56k, you might not wanna play online because it would probably get kinda frustrating. I suggest you get the bots and play with them, until you get broadband. :p
