I checked this.  I even changed my settings.  I was using my router 
( as my DNS.  Here is the results from 100 pings:

--- ping statistics ---
100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 99124ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.520/9.786/728.076/72.408 ms

Seems good.  I tried calling Comcast to use their DNS server directly, 
however they can not provide me with one.  I have since changed the DNS 
to be blank which results in timeouts, of course.

It should be noted, my settings on the laptop (which works without 
problem) are identical to those on my Desktop (the comp with the 
problem) with the exception of the LAN IP, of course.  Also, my settings 
are the Desktop are identical to those I used on previous versions of
