Ok, so I just moved to a university and am living in the dorms. It's a Techhttp://www.anetforums.com/posts.aspx?ThreadIndex=60477# college, and they have stated in their policy that gaming is allowed and not restricted in access.
Whenever I connect to any game server (UT2k4, Source, BF2, RO)http://www.anetforums.com/posts.aspx?ThreadIndex=60477#, I start out with decent ping, ~50-60 ms. However, as time goes by (about 5-10 minutes), my ping skyrockets to 300-500. I then get kicked for having a high average ping.
Is there any reason for this random ping? It is also impossible for me to ping out to say google.com. I'm assuming they've got me firewalled, and that might be affecting connections.
Also, my friends don't have this problem. It just randomly affects me. I was just now playing UT2k4 with no problems for about 15 minutes, pings all well below 100, now I can't find a server with less than 500 ping.
