I've had this happen from time to time... It might not be lag between you and the internet, but between the realm server and the internet. I've had times when I test my connection and I'm sailing: no problems with lag/download/upload speed. But then I'm on WoW and it just laggy anyway. Sometimes it will show as lagging on the little computer icon thingy and sometimes it won't. I'm convinced that when I can't log out it is due to lag on the server end.
If you can resolve the ip address of the realm server you are on, you could try and tracert it and see where it is slow... That might not work particularly well as I'm sure the firewalls on Blizz's end aren't going to resolve a lot of the packets correctly. So even if you try it, it might be meaningless anyway... Still it might be worth trying just to see if it shows anything interesting.
It is really annoying when it's not an issue on your end... Unfortunately I don't have a solution for you. I just feel your pain...
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it ot pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
