Alright, well I booted in Safe Mode with Networking, but it won't allow me to use the modem to dialup a connection it only has the LAN and Wireless available. After the full reboot I managed to get one of my random connections at full speed. Also I checked out the details on my dialup, it shows the server IP as 10.10.104.10 and the client at 10.10.104.64. I'm not sure if this will help any. I really appreciate your help, thank you.

A quick update. I tried using another computer around the house and it connects to that same IP address (10.10.104.10). I can't base any speed assessments on that computer however since the modem on it has always been somewhat unreliable for connection speeds.

sokerball86,

I did a little research on that address, and it no longer seems so odd to me.

On the other computer, can you please repeat the steps you did on this computer:

Goto Start, Run, type CMD and press 'OK' - now type: PATHPING Google.com - please copy and paste the results by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', and then pressing Ctrl+C. Please post the results here.

Please download PingPlotter. Run it and perform a search to the following website: google.com -- Once it is finished, click on 'Edit', and then select 'Copy as Text'. Paste the results here.

Please goto Start, Run, type CMD and press 'OK' - now type: netstat -rn and press enter; please post the results here

Do all of these time out on the second hop?

sokerball86,
I'm going to guess that they'll all time out in the same fashion -- from the look of things, the University has a firewall that isn't letting you trace your path. This makes it extremely difficult to troubleshoot, and it also might be the reason for your decreased speed -- it's taking longer for your packets to be parsed, and therefore your responses are slowed. This would also account for the random change; it would all depend on how busy the University network firewall is.

The only solution I can offer you would be to ask the University if they changed any settings recently, that might've impaired your connection.

Other than that, without the ability to troubleshoot, I'm afraid I can't really offer much more advice.

No problem :tazz: -- even though I didn't really help you with anything :)

However, at least you know it's not an inherent fault with your computer alone.

Thanks for being such a great sport :)
Hope to see you around the site :woot:
