The route to that specific game's servers may not be up to par at the moment. They may be having difficulties. If that's the case, there is nothing you or your ISP or the game owners can do. That specific peer will have to deal with it's routing issues. That all aside though...

What game are you trying to play? Have you tried running a traceroute to their servers? Have you checked to see if anyone else on the same ISP is having the same issues?

You're not experiencing any packet loss. Your connection is stable. Speed isn't an issue. Does that sound like an issue on your end?

Do you run any firewall software? Do you use a router?
