    Those answers help and eliminate a lot of possibilities.
    I presume any other machines inside the network ping edugeek/external fine?
    Another test to try, copy a large file (1gb ideally) onto a usb stick, copy the file to a working machines hard disk and note the time (the machines should be ideally the same model) then repeat on the borked machine. Just curious if its something motherboard/system driver related.

    Right next step, get a bootable linux iso and see if ping works then using wired.

    OMG! So the ping is our broadband team blocking filtered machines and other which are unfiltered are fine and can ping so the server can ping! You learn something new everyday. Still doesn't explain why this machine is loading webpages dead slow though. I thought I was onto something there!!

    Check to see if there is nothing dodgy/suspicious in the host file maybe? How can I reset the Hosts file back to the default?
