I was just playing a game of Team Fortress 2 last night, when suddenly (and I have no better way to describe this) my Internet connection slowed to a screeching halt. I'd like to be able to say that in a more technical way, but I've found it impossible to diagnose. Now, it's not universal. Certain servers in games have pings that are just jimdandy, and others are through the roof. Certain websites and webpages take minutes to load (on a 768 kbps connection). Unusually, torrenting speeds have remained very steady (although low) all throughout the incident. Most applications I use are superfluously portforwarded, anyways. A quick scan with HijackThis reveals no overtly suspicious entries, AVG turns up zilch, and both Spybot S+D and Ad-Aware SE are both completely baffled. I combed through the thirty processes I had running and not a one looked malicious or harmful to connection speed. I even went to the other computer that shares this router and shut it down so there was no way it could sap bandwidth. Any ideas, mates?
