Large amount of packet loss

There are bouts of it just being slow, me not being able to connect to anything, and my internet being normal. Speed tests are normal. It started randomly some time this week, I had made no changes to my PC or router, in regards to networking. It is affecting my entire household.

 

I tried using OpenDNS over my ISP's DNS servers, it seemed to work for a little bit, then went into the crapper again.

 

My TV and phone service is through my ISP (Optimum/Cablevision), and they are both fine.

 

Edit: I should mention I'm using a WRT-54G router, and that I tried rebooting/power cycling it and my modem, to no real positive outcome.

i have the same router and ive been experiencing weird slow downs too, for a weekend i took my router out of the loop and just went straight to the modem and the problems went away. i use skype alot, and it doesnt affect that, but webpages slow down. i updated my firmware on the router and it seems better, but still not perfect. soon im just gonna buy a new one.

 

but you could be having the same problems maybe

When my last router died it did the same thing. My download speeds were unaffected but it dropped a lot of outgoing packets.

What version is your WRT54G? Those seem to get worse with each new version, it seems. I had a WRT54G v6 for a while, even with DD-WRT it seemed to have a lot of issues. Eventually, it got replaced with a Netgear.

 

I recommend you try some line quality tests, as well. The one at DSLReports.com works fine. That will tell you whether it's the ISP, or your own equipment.

I narrowed it down to my torrent client, which is strange, as I am seeding less than I did (much, much less) a couple of months ago, and this came out of nowhere. I guess I can't seed those legal game-demo torrents anymore.
