High ping and it's affecting my online gaming.

Hi all!
been a while since i've had to post on here because i've had no problems what so ever, but last night I was gaming as I usually do and I felt a few lag spikes, as the night went on it got worse and worse and worse, before everyone suggests have you tried turning it on and off again...yes I have done that already!
My download speeds are fine and am more than happy with that it's my ping I have the problem with and it's so high, last time I tested it, I was getting 131ms ping which is truly shocking and yet it doesn't affect skype calls or internet browsing just the gaming I do on my Playstation 3 which has an ethernet cable attached to, I have had a look on google to see if there were any solutions to this but nothing so far, i've re-connected my ps3 3 times already and it hasn't got better, could someone please help me?

Hi RyanNicholson95

 

I have just checked your connection and network segment. Everything appears to be OK at present and there do not appear to have been any network problems recently. If you are still experiencing difficulties then please re-post with the information described here taken at the time, together with traceroutes to bbc.co.uk (no WWW).

Kind Regards,
