I have to echo some of the comments above, don't get down. Whenever my guild wipes we always say, 'what happened' as we're running back. Sometimes the cause is easy to determine, sometimes not, but we come up with some idea on what wiped us, and what we're going to do to change it the next time. We usually take bosses down after 2 or 3 times the first time we see them. The only that I can recall wiping on without a kill over a raid or two were Grobbulus, Gluth, Netherspite and Nightbane - all fights that required some pretty high coordination and had bosses that packed a wallop, where a small slip-up here or there meant you were doomed.It also helps that a lot of my guildies have a lot of alts, so if we want to shuffle the raid comp around and try something different, we usually can. Sometimes all it takes is a little shift in the comp. Try not to get down and focus on what you did well... placement, movement, handling adds, how close the boss was to being downed... and then try to figure what else you'd need to get over the hump. Lag is tough to beat, but don't be afraid to mix things around or alter your strategy a bit.
