I seriously cannot play today because my ping is so high and this has never happened before =/ I thinking it's because of the rain but that doesn't make sense lol

Or stop doing it yourself, but then the question becomes TF2 or porn?

Well, you can download porn sprays when you're not playing tf2... So... In your sleep, I guess.

As for a serious answer - get a better internet connection, or find servers closer to you - set the ping filters in the server list appropriately.

I find ping as a combo of of lag and internet lag. In cod1, my ping is because it has lower graphics, in newer games I set multiplayer textures to low to reduse lag and that means lower ping. So try turning down your graphics or build a better computer like I did.

FPS lag =/= internet lag

Making one better won't make the other one better.

True. On US servers I get 200+ ping, but the game flows no problem at 60 fps.

My FPS is pretty bad, but I always have great connection.

You may want to turn off all your programs that have anything to do with an internet connection, as they may download updates without a warning.
