Often this problem is due to the heavy traffic on the network.
If that is the reason you can't fix it.

If you ping external sites maybe that's the problem because you use an external network where it may be heavy traffic.If you ping a computer on an internal network it may be a hardware problem:
network cards ,switches ,hubs ,cables ,etc or even a software problem on that computer.
