    Hey guys,

    recently I've been experiencing some very weird internet connection issues.

    my internet connection has become very unstable at times, it can be as slow as in the low 100kbps sometimes, or sometimes it can be as fast as 1mbps.

    My internet service provider is Verizon and I have DSL on my computer.

    I uses a Westell Modem with a Linksys wireless B Broadband router.

    Do anyone know what is causing this problem?

    I did notice that my internet connection speed seems to speed up after midnight.

    Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. Post the results link from the top of the test display page here.

    I'd do this when it's slow, then again when it's up to full speed.

    hm..........i seem to be unable to use the line quality tests on my computer, everytime i tried to test it, it shows this

    sorry, 71.103.134.166 is not pingable from www.dslreports.com.

    Please disable firewall ping protection. See this FAQ section for more information.

    I did disable both my mcafee firewall and windows firewall and it still doesn't work.....

    You're running behind one or two routers, right? If so, it's a router blocking pings to your public IP address.
