Can't stay connected (TCPTimeout?)

For three days now I've been trying to track down this problem.
Unfortunately, I can't associate any personal actions with the start of
my connection problems.
I can't stay connected to any server for more than a few seconds, and if
I have to get a map from redirect it will endlessly fail and resume.
I've tried several kernels, 3 nics and 3 routers, a direct connect to my
cable modem, I've googled my way to hell and back trying to verify that
my system is setup correctly. I can find nothing wrong.
The one thing that I'm suspicious of is how many tcp timeouts I get when
I try to play ut2004. netstat -s gives me about 3 per minute while
browsing, but if I try to play online it's at least one, but sometimes
several per second. That can't be right. But I don't have
packet_filter set in my kernel, no firewall running on the local system.
Is it possible that comcast is killing my connection as fast as I can
