OK, this explains what I'm seeing tonight then. Thanks Don! :-) Actually
I'd have preferred a cot. ;-) I'm just home from unanticipated gall
bladder surgery and won't be coming into the office for a while, so I really
*need* my DSL connection to work!

ACD has fiber to campus, efectively making them a segment on 'our' network,
so they should be able to ping the gateway. You should have been able to
ping via your ACD/MSU account, but not through ACD's own network. Since
Traceroute uses pings it shouldn't be working from off campus either.
Perhaps it is a conspiricy to keep all the tech talent on campus by denying
access from home to fix and check up on the network? I'd bet you were
wondering why that cot was delivered, weren't you? B-)
Maybe you could microwave into the clinical center's dish?

No, traceroute isn't working either. I get nothing to 22.214.171.124 or my office
machine, which is in the 35.8.144.x block. Just a thought: while I was
troubleshooting with the ACD tech an hour ago, she was able to ping 126.96.36.199
whereas I could not.
