http drops.

So Ive just had my fibre installed and I am getting some HTTP drops at random intermittent intervals.
Support said keep an eye on it over the next few days but they're still happening. UDP/TCP data seems fine and other problems aren't dropping it's just websites are failing to load and my sync isn't actually dropping from my Modem (so I am not disconnecting)
I thought it was DNS related so I swapped my DNS servers around (from auto, I've tried both OpenDNS and Google's DNS and both are still dropping. I am in the process of grabbing a Wireshark capture next time it happens.
Pings show packet loss/unable to connect to the websites when it happens but eventually it clears up and not ALL websites are affected.

Re: http drops.

Are you using a wireless connection? (maybe some interference from something)

Re: http drops.

It could also be a duff router - can you try a PPPoE connection direct to the computer

Re: http drops.

Thanks guys, it's happening on all devices whether it is wireless/Ethernet. Tested both routers (Asus and the PN one) again happened with both. It's very very random and only happens rarely but still annoying
