Is this on the same server?

Do a tracert to said server to see what it says. There may be a busted hop between you and the server.

hes sayin the route your internet usually takes to the server maybe isn't working and now your being routed a different way.

try a different server one that is closer to your location. I play allot of Enemy Territory and the server I play on is in Detroit my average ping is 98 now if I play on a server that is on the West Coast ( I live in BC) my Ping drops down to between 20-45 this is basically because I am closer to the server. Unfortunately for me all the good servers are more Central and Eastern US servers which mean Higher pings. also make sure that you that you don't have to many things running in the back ground especially anything that connects to the internet. ( why I Like to try and remember to use linux when playing ET my pings seem to drop to around 80 when I am using Linux)
