Default Terrible Guild wars lag!

Not sure if this was the right forum sorry if it isn't. Im on windows 7 64 bit and getting lag. My character is freezing and bouncing a lot. I tried to run it from Windows XP service pack 2 for this game and same issue. Anyone else getting this or know why this is happening?

AMD Phenom II X4 3.2GHz
evga geforce gtx 550 1GB gddr5
12 GB ddr3 ram

Your (basic specs) isn't a problem.

What kind of internetconnection are you using? in case of wifi, did you try plugging into the router directly? What is the ping (coloured dot) telling you (default position is to the lower right corner, when mousover you get some details bout framerate etc.).

*In my opinion it can be two problems.
a: graphic card related problem (faulty hardware or a driverissue). I have a 10 year old laptop wich does what you are describing (extually i can stand in my GH as long as none fireworks are going off and it's void of people, then I get the bouncy freezing thing. I use it for sometimes for chatting with people). But those specs are way below the minimal requirements.

b: routing issue. keep in mind with routing I'm not talking bout your home router alone, but bout all steps needed to have a connection from the gameserver to your computer. most of the time this is an issue with your home router (where some ports are being blocked) or with your internet provider. Some ways to troubleshoot this is giving more info here bout your country, your internetprovider, your home-network (like brand of router) etc.

I am on WIFI yes, in America on time warner cable. I have a Netgear router and d-link wireless-n adapter and wireless-n booster. Never had an issue with this game in the past, also ping is fine, run every other game fine on internet (Diablo III, BF3, COD)

I found that one of my anti-virus really messes with guild wars, If you have one try and completely exit it. That helps me.
