Internet woes!

I've been having some major internet problems the last few days. Every 15 minutes or so the internet will fail for 3 minutes. It's long enough to get me kicked off from WoW and to alt-tab out and check the web browser - no dice. Then, suddenly, in a few minutes it will pop back onto full speed. I turned off my firewalls and the IT guy at my apartment claims it's my computer, not the network. Has anyone heard of anything similar to this and possible fixes? WoW has gone from fun to completely unplayable, as I die every damn time I LD.

Anyone heard of something like this?! Help!

Thanks.

Okay, what kind of internet connection do you have? Dial-up, DSL, Cable? Are you on a wireless network or are you directly connected? When's the last time you scanned for viruses and spyware?

I scan routinely. It's a T1 throughout the apartment complex that's a dynamic connection, so I didn't have to "set" anything when I jacked in. I have AVG running constantly and have recently disabled the firewalls I had set to see if that made a difference. Spybot turns up . . . (running) nothing.

Find out where it's dying. bring up a command line window (start->run...->cmd)

Traceroute to find where it dies.
c:\> tracert 216.109.112.135 (that's a yahoo server)

Tracing route to w2.rc.vip.dcn.yahoo.com [216.109.112.135]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 95 ms 151 ms 31 ms 192.168.50.5
2 * * * Request timed out.
3 * * * Request timed out.
4 * * * Request timed out.
5 * * * Request timed out.

I'm behind a very restrictive net right now so echo's don't work. You'll probably see two or three hops before the timeouts begin. Let the admin people know the last functional hop in the list.

Do the same thing while the net's working and you'll get an idea of what's normal.
