speed seems ok, not the issue here i think. do some pathpings against the servers you experienced the problem, against tmn and other servers. see if you can get the pings to go ballistic that way too. of course, scrub the system of any spyware, malware, aol and other crap. if your system is clean and you can reproduce the high pings against different servers maybe ring up the isp and see if there are any known issues. if they say no, call again to get a different tech and see if he agrees...

Well, if your download speeds are fine, it might be your counter-strike settings.

In your console type "Rate" and press enter. It should tell you what your current rate is and if your rate is anything below 1000 that might be the problem. I set my rate at 20,000 but my connection is faster than yours. I think a good rate for you would be the default 9999. To change your rate just type "rate 9999" in the console and hit enter.

A couple other commands to check are:



(both of mine are set at 101)

If that isn't the problem you could check your route to the server you are lagging in. Just do a "tracert <server ip>" in Windows-Dos.
