I have recently connected to some fiber infrastructure for internet.
I am connected to it with my laptop and my phone, via a TP-LINK TL-WDR4300 router.
I often encounter connection losses, like various download speeds drop to 0 occasionally, online games get "disconnected" because connection to server is lost, and it's really really annoying.
I read through This question, but it has no accepted answer and plus my connection only drops momentarily for a few milliseconds and immediately comes back.
The connection losses occur randomly, but at the same time on my phone and my laptop, both on 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, so I can rule out the laptop and phone's part.
I need to know whether it's the router's fault or the infrastructure, or the internet provider.
- I know some of you will advise me to switch or bypass the router to see if the issue persists, but this will not provide certain indication so I do not want to get into this
Is there a way to determine for sure who is the culprit in this situation?
I'm not too much into systems, so all I could think about so far was to
tracert to Google and then do a simultaneous
ping to each point in the route and wait for a connection drop to see which one times out, but of course Murphy's Law hit again and I haven't had a single connection drop since.
