Occasionally, I'm unable to reliable use the Internet from any client device.
My torrent client is unaffected, transmitting at the speeds I have it set to.
Web pages just don't load, or take a long time to load. Google Chrome often gives an empty response error. The Xbox 360 can't go or stay online.
Packets are being dropped:
Pinging yahoo.com [22.214.171.124] with 32 bytes of data: [omitted to save space] Ping statistics for 126.96.36.199: Packets: Sent = 20, Received = 16, Lost = 4 (20% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 83ms, Maximum = 102ms, Average = 90ms
I have tried using different routers and DNS servers, but the symptoms persist. Resetting the router and cable modem is a short lasting remedy.
The router's web interface is always available and snappy.
What are some possible causes for this type of behavior?
