HELP! Warcraft III Online Play Problems

I recently got broadband for my comp, so I thought 'Alrite, lag free gaming to the max!' And for the first day this was true. No kicks for high ping, all was sweet. Every time I get on after that, I check my ping and it has been as high as 1200! It flucuates alot. After not doing anything for a bit a recheck usually brings up a ping of about 400-500, but still rediculously high if Im not mistaken. Everything else (except Msn Messenger, which seems to hang when you first log in) is running at full speed. Getting constant kicks from an unfairly high ping is driving me insane. SOMEONE HELP PLEASE!

This is playing on a Non-Blizzard Warcraft III server. But seeing as I was fine the first day I dont think its the problem.

ok, first get the IP address of the server you are playing on. then go to start/run. type in cmd and hit ok. this will bring up a command prompt. type in tracert 127.0.0.1 where the 127 ip is your servers ip. it will take a bit to run is normal. Please not that it will not return an ip for your modem.

example:
Tracing route to 69.28.220.206 over a maximum of 30 hops

you either have an increasing time to get to the destination or you have a lot more hops than above to get there. If you will notice #9 is slightly higher. if this gets high enough or doesn't respond it can cause network latency.... otherwise known as Lag. what can you do? well in the example I can contact my provider (comcast) and say that I am getting high latency from this ip and they will look into it. The only other option would be to play on another server.
