Default Game lag issue

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

Lag-o-meter fullscreened
YouTube - ET 2009-01-06 19-03-36-53aq

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?
