    Hi there all.

    One of my local ISP DSL providers told me to come here with my problem, as she was rather adamant that the problem wasn't on their end. Lo' and behold, I remembered my login and password for this forum. Go me. So here I am... Now. The problem!

    I've been having this problem recently, not terribly sure when it started. But when I try to connect to any website I'll get a "Looking Up.. www.website.com" or a "Connecting to.. www.website.com". Eventually it'll get the website and it will download the webpage with the speed of DSL, or it might time-out. This happens with both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Foxfire.

    I also play a good amount of computer games, and today, while playing World of Warcraft, that I would get crazy lag while playing. I call up my ISP and she told me to come here after I ran spybot, adware and hijackthis. None of which showed up anything. I also checked for viruses, that came up clean. Reinstalled the drivers for my ethernet as well.

    This, coupled with the fact that as of right now I don't see any problems (though I'm still getting a small amount of lag in World of Warcraft) makes me wonder seriously if it is a problem on my end.

    Anyone have -any- ideas? On a side note.. I live in East Texas and we've been getting a lot of rain for a while now.. Could that have anything to do with it?

    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: I see that there is a Web and Email forum too. I might should have post there. Not too sure.. Too late now.

    Edit2: I did a tracert. Anyone got any idea why the 3rd hop is timing out? This is a tracert to us.logon.warcraft.com
