I think it may have been an "etc." on my computer's end. I had some theories as to what may have been causing the problem, and did a system restore just to see. That seems to have fixed the problem: I was able to log on and play.
Thanks for all that info though. If I have problems of a similar nature, next time I'll try posting what my Trace Route diagnostic came up with, too.
