My connection has been dropping out fairly regularly so I wrote a scheduled task yesterday to ping google's DNS server every 5 minutes and record the result, so I have a note of when it's happening in case we need to talk to the ISP about it. However, after a few hours, every ping started failing.
What could be causing this, and is it likely to be something out of my control e.g. a fault on the ISP's end?
- All computers on the network have this problem now
- I can ping within the network, just not anything outside it
- I've tried restarting/reconnecting the computers and the router to no effect
