    Find the server you are connecting to (say name xyz.com or ip 1.2.3.4)
    get a command prompt and enter
    pathping xyz.com (or pathping 1.2.3.4)​
    and wait for it to complete

    There's every possibility that the server is just overloaded - - OR some node in the path to it is acting badly.
