Default Unstable behavior, browsing timeouts

I'll try to describe the whole problem, but sorry in advance, if I'll be jumpy... Oh, and I'm really inexperienced when it comes to networks, so bear with me Oh, and I'm not the owner of the network and so I don't have direct access, but I can get most of the information, it will just take some time. But, unfortunately, I'm not able to "experiment" with solutions.

OK, first the overview. The network itself is a 4 channel connection, 10 Mb/s each one, accedes through several routers located in hallway, that looks like an "O". I don't know the exact number of routers though. There is a limit of 1Mb/s per connection.

Network is used by approximately 60 persons overall, but since it a dormitory the load is random all the time.

And, apparently, some(most?) of the ports are closed.

Now the problem itself. First thing that I've noticed, is that connection seems jumpy. When listening to a net-radio, it has a tendency to stop from time to time, for 1-2 seconds. As well in games (WoW in was the only one I've tested it in) it sometimes cause a lag in sending information (as if I get 10 second of gameplay, than 3 seconds of frozen world, fast forward... hence and repeat), which can happen at random times for a random time(it's not constant, sometimes I can get several hours of normal play). Sometimes adding more load(turning on radio, torrents) might help, but not always.

The funny part, is that things like torrents keep working with no problems. And I've never experienced a disconnect, only delays if sending/receiving info.

Now the biggest problem. Browsing. Yes, simply browsing. It's not working. 90% of time I try to load a page I end up with a "cannot connect to a server" error. Raging F5 helps sometimes, but most of the time page won't load completely. It's the same in Opera, Firefox and (oh surprise!) IE.

Another fact is that everyone in dorm has this problem, and it seems to be heavier in some parts of the building, but that is not confirmed.

Will be looking forward for you're reply, but since I doubt I'll be able to access this page from dorm, expect replies in first part of the day.
