    A few things I can rule out here..

    1. It's not the firewall: I've disabled the firewall through firewall.cpl
      It's not the internet connection: I use the same cable as my other PC which works fine
      It's not the antivirus software: I've done an uninstall of that.

    A few things that could be useful

    1. The servers I'm trying to connect to will connect with my second PC with the same internet connection
      It won't connect to most MMOs (Starcraft: GE, San Andreas Multiplayer servers, Second life) but for some reason connected to Fallen Earth
      A few San Andreas Multiplayer servers actually do connect, about 5 out of 1000, seemingly at random each refresh.
      I recently had the Alureon.h rootkit trojan which I removed with TDS killer
      Microsoft Forefront Client Security was my old antivirus. For some reason it wouldn't let me allow any programmes or change settings. It claimed I wasn't the administrator when I was. I've since uninstalled it.
    It's a lenovo T400 laptop I purchased second hand. It was installed for me. Here are the specs if they're useful (DxDiag)
    System Information

    The only thing I can think of right now is there may be some network driver I'm missing. Any assistance? I haven't tried a complete format + reinstall. That's my final resort and I dunno how much good it would do.

    We're using a Bebox wireless router.
