Urban Terror Game Lag

Hi!
I recently switched from adsl1 to adsl2+ inc phoneb and I'm pretty happy with it overall. I used to get 150KB/s max download b4 and now usually get 200KB/s (although I expected more since I'm syncing at 5000kbps). My problem is that I play the free FPS "Urban Terror" It used to play great with no lag but now there's ALWAYS lag no matter what time of day I play and what server i choose. It seems to use different ports each time it loads the game so i don't think that that's an issue (currently 27960). (Just downloaded a map for it b4 playing from the same server and downloaded at 500KB/s!!! nice!!! But still lags during gameplay!!! ARG!) Any ideas anyone?

Thanks, Evs

Hi Stephen!
I think i found out the problem - some process related to my virus scanner (avira) spikes every once in a while causing cpu overload but i misunderstood the in-game data to be download/upload lag. Changed some settings and fixed it for MOST of the time.

I Pm'd u my service number anyway just in case there's something wrong.

Thanks,
Evs

Hi Steve, I disconnected my phone from the line (wireless phone) and reset my modem but the problem still seems to occur. Its Especially bad at night starting at 11:30 normally until about 2:00 in the morning. I'm aware that there is some issue about other users turning on their torrent downloaders but Im consistently getting around 20-40KB/s download (any website) around those times (never used to on adsl1) and its very annoying to have to wait for 99% of youtube videos to download before watching them. Urban Terror lag got slightly better when I changed the behaviour of my virus scanner but I think I was overly optimistic about it because after playing these last few days I've seen that its still there. Strangely Im consistently getting around 4000kb/s download results from http://www.speedtest.net/ every time I check it.

Any advice is appreciated.
