Is it wrong of me to expect packets to actually get from my computer to wherever and back again? Or is keysurf just on the fritz again?

They should get back if you ping 'em, yes.

In this case, I think I was expecting a news server, a web server, and two different IM servers to respond. According to the little icon in the systray, packets were going out happily but not coming back. This is dialup (with a RealModem™), so either the other modem got bored and dropped the carrier (making my one retrain a couple of times before giving up), or keysurf's internal network was acting up. Then again, a traceroute out shows packets going through a keysurf router, then one at the university (or at least in the university's ipblock), then, *then* on out to the internet.
