Ok my idea
1. ISP
2. Lag in your ISP system
3. Lag in your system
4. Rebot your computer. I have DSL. Cox.net is one of the fastest providers out there and even they lag a bit. But maybe your ISP is having a high useage. I remember back on dial up friday nights it used tot ake forever to load a page cause the ISP was loading so many pages at the same time.
