Either your internet connection is poor, or the server is not close to you.

Make sure no other applications are using your bandwidth (file sharing, etc). Also make sure you are getting good FPS.

If it happens a lot, you may have to just find a different server.

Ping time is the time it takes to send a signal from your computer, to the server, and back to your computer.

Sometimes ping times can be fine but there is alot of packet loss (some of the data heading to the server gets lost and the server has to ask for it again) and that will cause a "high ping kick" because you're unresponsive for a period of time. UK-2 has a good middle ground set for ping times as I recall.

You can do this and see what happens:

Goto Start > Run
Type: cmd
This will bring up a command prompt
Type: tracert 195.149.21.12

How many hops do you get and what is the response time (in miliseconds) for the last hop?
