close down anyhting tha tuses the internet besides halo. sometiems your bandwith gets clogged up.

also, make sure you dont have a firewall, sometimes firewalls shoot it up and someimtes even completely stop it. and do you have cable? because it might be high cause you have a bad connection. also make sure you're playing on servers close to you, i know if i try to play on servers on the west coast its always laggier than the ones closer to NY.

Are you running things like bittorrent, antivirus, etc behind the game? Do you use a router and/or firewall? Do you have any ad or malware running on your computer that you can't get rid of?
Computer specs?

Right click on 'My Computer' and click properties. Read off all the information under 'Computer:' on the first screen.

Mine says:

Pentium 4 CPU 1.80GHz (yeah... 1.8 ) :dodgy:
1.00 GB of RAM
