turn off all background programs running online (all internet browsers, messengers, etc) firewalls etc. though in reality the best way to do it is to get better internet. :D

Define Lag: Low framerate or high ping?

in MW2 high ping is EXTREMELY common as IW got stupid and removed dedicated servers making random people host (and yes, it's pretty much random)

anyone, even with a good connection, can get unplayable lag if the host is bad.

I reccomend modding your game to a 10-bar ping counter so you can easily tell who is host and call him out if the lag is too bad.

for other games, high ping is your internet connection, if its low framerate, tone the graphics down, close background programs, and hope for the best.

I don't really think there's much you can do to reduce your ping except ensure nothing is downloading in the background, i.e. Windows Update, torrents etc. A couple of console commands that might help are:
rate 35000
cl_cmdrate 60
cl_updaterate 50. If none of that helps then you could try complaining to your ISP, maybe they're doing maintenance in your area or something of that ilk.

Well, this is up to you, but while playing WoW I heard of a devloper making a latency fix that changes the way your computer interacts with servers. It should be a universal fix, even though it describes it self as a fix for WoW. It took my msping from 150 to 70

Heres a link if you are interested:

If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)
