Massive Packet Loss Comcast.
This is really starting to irritate me. This has been going on for the last week on and off, me internet will just bog down to dial up speeds, and I will get massive packet drop for hours on end.

I have: msconfig'd services on and off to test for a broken service, changed router password, switched from dynamic to static IP's, enabled and disabled spi firewall/software firewall, enabled and disabled upnp, clean booted modem and router.

I am at a lose as to what to do, it won't even let me connect to my modem to check signal levels, which were fixed by comcast about 6 months ago anyways.

Pingtest and speedtest all show 0% packet loss and A+ across the board ever time, only long tests like the line test show it, also the ling test reports 100% loss for medium and high bandwidth streams, but that has always been the case.


I am at a loss as to what to do it seems like basic internet browsing is fine until I connect to Steam/AIM/Vent/ and any game, as a gamer this is pretty much making my days after work as boring as possible.

Any help will be appreciated, thank you.
