Connection Speed problem for a networked college dorm.

But it would really suck if you just accepted a quick canned answer of "your in a dorm and your being lagged out by others" versus trying to actually verify, that is the problem instead of troubleshooting the problem and proving that maybee the latency is coming from a different server that you have not connected through before, or that your cat5 cord is defective, or that your newest microsft update messed up your nic card, or any other sleugh of probabilities.
Lets not get sidetracked here with other users trying to be helpful . Dorms usually turn off ICMP or filter it.. which is why you are unable to ping anything. In your first post you said
and I ping 15 here also, and then every 30 seconds, it will fluctuate to 150-800 ping, and consistently stay there for 2-5 minute intervals, and then lag-free for 30 seconds, and then repeat.
With an Emphasis on the first 6 words... "and I ping 15 here also,"
If we are unable to ping now, how were you able to ping earlier. were you using the command prompt like we are now, or are you using the games internal ping function.

And for your question, I can check my ping anytime, I just open up CS, and it will say my ping/latency for any particular server.
I know from my friend that my university does not block p2p programs, because my friend was downloading. But then he found out that the university does MONITOR to make sure no one is downloading from p2p programs, but they just monitor and catch you, is what they claim. But I doubt it.

I was on at like 2 AM last night, and I did not lag spike once, probably because most of the school was asleep.
I made this thread to ask if there was anything that I can do to increase my ping, or am I powerless?

As of now, I can only play without lag during like 2 AM.

So I was wondering if you guys know anything about this Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet Properties, and if there is a way I can tweak it for more speed. And yes I did try other values under Speed & Duplex, there were 3 other ones besides 10 MB Half and Auto, there was 10 MB Full and 100 MB half, and 100 MB full. Although the 100 MB's didn't even connect.

In most university networks like other campus networks ICMP (trace routes, pings, etc) are blocked. And mostly gaming sites are also blocked. Please check the university internet use policy. Just a thot, cus that's how it's in my uni dorm.
