Go back out to DSLReports.com and do a Line Packet Loss test. It will
tell you where the problems are occurring, and give you the name of the
hop that is the problem. If it tests ok back to your network, then the
ISP is off the hook.

I do, however, use this test A LOT to go back to the ISP and tell them
"OK, you have a problem with your router named xxxx at address
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx located in anywhere, usa.

That usually shuts them up.


Thanks John, I'll use that next time our stupid provider can't get their head out of the sand. If any of you are out in California, never ever EVER use Telepacific as your phone/internet provider.
