Random few hours of burst packet loss

April 2, 2011 at 22:27:32
Specs: Windows 7
For about 7/24th of the day it'll be fine. But the rest of the day it will be riddled with burst packet loss.

For example when I'm pinging.

It'll go

"Done
Done
Done
Done
Done
Request timed out
Timed out
Timed out
Timed out
Timed out
Done
done
Request timed out
timed out
timed out
Done
Done
Done"

Due to how it's only certain times it happens and other times it's perfect leads me to believe it's my ISP.

What are you pinging?
Is it only the ping, that didn't work or can't you access the internet when this happens?

Note: Ping is a "can reply" not a "must reply".
If a machine is under heavy load, ping often does not reply.

It doesn't matter what I'm pinging it does this to every website.

And yes, it's not just pinging. When I'm doing something packets are lost as well usually forcing me to reload the website.

If it matters it also effects when I'm online on my ps3. When it's like this I get disconnected every minute.

When this happens, can you ping the router itself at this time?

Nope. I was able to ping the router just fine when it was happening.

So that means it's my ISP right?

Or maybe your router, that cuts you off.
Therefore, you have to check the routers log enties, to figure out, whether the router hang up or it simply lost the connection to your ISP.

This always depends on the router model and brand.
You have to read the routers manual on howto setup the router and howto check the routers log.
