Full game view (notice the lag-o-meter on the right)

Lag-o-meter fullscreened

its basically a hiccup every 7 or 8 seconds

Things I've tried/noticed:

RTCW SP works fine

Other people on my network playing ET do not have the same problem

It happens on all servers (including non-pb servers)

I've tried several wireless cards.

tried deactivating DMZ

tried disabling all port forwards.

tried anti-virus/anti-spyware scan (AVG and Spybot S&D)

tried formatting my whole hard drive

Still no luck...

I moved my PC to the basement where the router is, and am still having the problem. I attached an ethernet cable to the onboard ethernet and router and can't seem to be able to make the wireless connection stop. Suggestions?

Also, does anybody know any free/trail software that has an active streaming latency test like the one built into the game engine?

Could it be the actual game lagging? not the online part of it.

What game is it ? You could try upgrading your RAM?

It could be latency introduced by wireless. Wireless isn't very good for fps games as they are network sensitive. Try a wired connection to rule this out.
