Yeah there isnt actually a CS.exe its steam and hl2, so when you try to connect does the server latency suddenly jump to 200, i had that problem i had to fordward all the steam port ranges on my router and i switched to avast anti virus and on access protection and its works fine. If you use wireless use the windows WZC or disable it dont use thrid party wireless software eg belkin utility and keep WZC running disable it in services to make sure it is off.
Also your isp might be able to help if you cant get it, was speaking to one for another problem and just asked him and he told me a quick fix for my router config as well to allow it on the routers firewall to.
