Laptop is lagging when playing games and surfing internet!!


I just noticed TODAY that my websurfing is little bit laggy and when I tried to play online games like warcraft and counter-strike, I had pretty high ping (ping around 400, usually I have it around 15) and game feel laggy as well. Now, I did seakeasy speed test and it shows DL: 2.15mb and UL: 0.07mb, which is usually.

So i don't understand why my ping is high and I am feeling laggy not only on my laptop which is using wireless connetion but my desktop as well which is hookup to modem through ethernet. I also, tried playing games and websurfing on my desktop but it was also laggy. I did speedtest on my desktop and I achieved similar results which were normal.

So basically, until today my internet connection was just fine and running smoothly but today, I am feeling lot of lag. Help, please. Thank you

Don't understand why, should I contact my ISP provider (ATT)?
