Internet/pinging really slow on ubuntu

I think something happened to my ubuntu machine and now going to websites and/or pinging a website is extremely slow. I am hardwired to my router so it should be pretty fast.

"To be honest, 8 ms to get a reply from a site like yahoo, doesn't strike me as particularly slow. The same ping (I'm at this moment 3 rooms away from my wireless router takes about 27 ms - 1/3 as fast. But if you think you have a problem, try traceroute. It will tell you all the machines your packets pass though and where the bottlenecks are.

Install with sudo apt-get install traceroute and run as:

traceroute www-real.wa1.b.yahoo.com

From my machine, which I consider typical, if not lightning quick or anything:

traceroute to www-real.wa1.b.yahoo.com (209.131.36.158), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
