I have been trying to fix several issues with my computer that were leftover from a virus I had several months ago, and in that process I discovered that I am unable to ping anything, I get a request timeout for anything that I try. The odd part is that my internet seems to be working fine, I can access any site that I want, with the exception of the Steam store, which is what sent me down this path in the first place. This isn't a huge issue since everything seems to be functioning fine, but I am concerned it reflects a larger problem with my computer that I don't know about. Any ideas what is causing this?
Some background: I fixed the previous virus pretty much at the same time as I was getting deployed overseas with the Army. So it could be an issue left over from the virus, or it could be an issue with changing the Internet service to something used in a foreign country half-way around the world (we get free wireless internet over here).
