Intense network slowdown

Something odd is going on. My network connection is acting up on one of my machines at home. It only occurs in this machine that's running Slackware-Current (I haven't updated in at least a month).

Check this:
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=242 time=1306 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=242 time=1352 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=5 ttl=242 time=1353 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=7 ttl=242 time=1357 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=9 ttl=242 time=1324 ms

--- ping statistics ---
11 packets transmitted, 5 received, 54% packet loss, time 23509ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1306.379/1338.902/1357.550/20.029 ms, pipe 2
Mind bendingly slow, considering that I'm on a nice cable pipe.

I know that it's not a DNS issue, everything is correctly pointing to where it should, and I didn't have this problem a few hours ago on this box.

Any thoughts?

hmm, after a tad of time it came back to normal.
It was a good sign (and time) to get my Squid proxy back into shape -- everything is running even faster now
