Trace Routes

From your traceroute, there are a few cluew to what can be causing your ptoblems.

Hop 1 (the first row) shows - 192.168. addresses mean internet IP addresses and as such, i suspect you have a LAN.

When tracing fault, you usualy look for the first hop to have trouble. As the hop apears to be in poor health like the others, it very strongly sugestes a problem there or before.

In other words, a probable issue with your own equipment.

I would advise you to follow the Troublshooting FAQ and wireing and filters tutorial as a start to tracing and removing the fault.

Have you tried just powering off your router or USB modem to see if that solves the problem. Or trying a different ADSL filter/splitter, or connecting directly to your master socket.

Also for a router, make sure you are running the latest firmware and that it is setup properly. Sometimes resetting to factory defaults then configuring it again can help.

Once you have isolated the problem with your own equipment and the problem still exists, repost your details again.

Yeah, I have a NETGEAR DG384 Router, and it seems to be working fine. After having the router for nearly a month, this problem has only happened inside the last week. The only change made to the router is opening a few ports for some games.

Though the problems i'm getting seemed to happen when the maintaince was done by to some services. The router has been upgraded, but i'll play around with the splitters/filters, cables, etc to check it. I'll even change to the second LAN port on my motherboard.

Cheers for the info.
