Jumping gateways

I normally do a gateway check and speed test when I switch my PC on in the morning,
I have been on PCL AG01 for a few days, then about 19 Hrs ago got dumped on unknown, did a disconnect and got on PCLag02, now on ptn-ag2.  What a difference

Re: Jumping gateways

You've just confirmed something I've been suspecting for a little while, the packet drop by gateway graphs are not giving an accurate picture.
Incidentally, when it shows unknown do a tracert and you will be able to see the gateway in the first hop after your router.
