---------------------------------------------------------------------

Packet loss occurs when one or more packets of data traveling across a computer network fail to reach their destination.

Packet loss can be caused by a number of factors, including signal degradation over the network medium, oversaturated network links, corrupted packets rejected in-transit, faulty networking hardware, faulty network drivers or normal routing routines.

Someone else already mentioned running netcheck, so you can figure out where the problem is. If it's not on your end, there might be not much you can do ;(

When I get this I also get the following resut witha trace route -

Trace complete.

Problem is 12 hops away for me. Yet my friends in my area are playing just fine. Your problem might be the same.
