    Are you joining servers that are closest to you? Have you tried to ping an outside site near to your location to see what it returns?
    What i am thinking is that you need to reset your modem. (if using DSL) I have seen this a million times, turn it off, leave it for about a minute and boot it again. Hope that helps! ;)

    i've had the same problem before when somehow my rates got altered. type net_graph 3 in your console.. see if your getting any choke.. if you are then it's probably your rates.. you can search on google to find reasonable rates for your modem. i have a cable modem and i have my rate set to 25000 and i get no choke, hope that helps
