    does it happen to just you or everyone on the server?
    What operating system & internet connection do you have?

    Are you running anything in the background such as peer to peer file sharing? (kaaza, morpheus, etc.)
    Try running spybot to see if any spyware is using your connection.
    What's your status on anti-virus? Do you have a good, updated program for anti-virus? Have you done a system scan lately?
    I can point you to some great modem & game tweaks but you need to get the obvious simple stuff out of the way first.

    For some tweaks for CS read this. It's on a Day of Defeat site but CS & Day of Defeat are both Half Life mods so it will work great.
    Can you say if it's just a problem with CS or with all games? If it happens in all games or all resource intensive programs (photoshop, Dreamweaver, ULead, etc.) it may be a hardware problem.
    Can you give us detailed system specs? Motherboard, video card, etc.
    You may have a heat problem if it's not just in CS.
