High ping in FPS after upgrading to W7 from XP

Hi, so yesterday at a lan party we decided to upgrade my mates ancient PC to Windows 7 from XP and the computer should have the specs for it and Windows 7 itself was/is running smooth. The first time I put up Windows Home Premium and installed the normal programs. I installed steam and downloaded Counter-Strike, and told my m8 to go play on a local server. And his ping going crazy. My MS is about 10-20 on a local server, but his jumps from 50-200ms, which is unbearable. Well after that we decided to back XP and went off to play, and now it was working perfectly. And the day after we put up a new Windows 7 Ultimate 86x. And again the same problem persists. Any ideas what cause this or how to fix it?
