I tried changing the MTU using Regedit... I followed this  
http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article04-107   from Lee's post.

I did the ping deal at 1500 got defrag error, did the 1492, got error 
did 1454 and got a ping.  Made the change in regedit like the article 
says... and still no dice.  I forgot to try 1430  and will when I get 
home tonight.

Does DrTCP do somehting the reg edit does not that might make this 
work?  Seriously... Im getting ready to sell this laptop and get a 
different one.  Its really baffling me.

I havent had time to search up the previously mentioned set of posts... 
but will when I get time.  Just wanted to up date everyone incase that 
triggered a new idea for a solution.
