So for the past few days, my internet has been really slow and those who regularly visit the IRC channel probably know all about it. I finally decided to stop my moaning and I went and called the network admin. My building itself doesn't support DSL so thats why we have to share it with the building next door. When I called him he told me that the router and the internet were supposedly fine and everyone was happy with it and that I was the only person to complain. Right now there are 3 possibilities; 1. He's a liar and purposely firewalled the router to stop us from downloading shit or even browsing. 2. The router is a piece of crap and is bugging up. 3. There's something wrong with my computer. I'd like you all to help me eliminate possibility 3. First of all, I'd like to say that in my network connections, when I first start it up, it'd show my local area connection trying to acquire a network address. Then when it has successfully done so, a new icon would appear called "Internet connection" and I'd be able to surf/download fine. Lately that hasn't happened for some reason. All I get is the LAN acquiring a network address and then saying its connected. I can go online but its really slow and torrents don't work at all. Uploading works perfectly fine though (I have a ratio of 2 for Oblivion, which I've been trying to download for 2 weeks now). And whenever I download anything from a regular website, the download will go really slow and get interrupted and just stop for no reason. My IP is given to me automatically and so is my DNS server. My DNS server always used to be 192.168.1.254 and my IP adress would always be 192.168.1.XX, where the last 2 digits would always be different. Now though, my DNS server is always 192.168.1.1 and my IP adress 192.168.1.1 also. The strangest of all is whenever I go into command prompt and type ipconfig, it'll give me my IP adress as "fe80::216:e6ff:fe57:dbc3%4", which seems a bit strange to me. Right now I've tried; 1. Running nod32, Ad Aware and Spybot full scans. 2. Network setup wizard. 3. Network Identification. I don't know what else to do. Thanks in advance for any help.
