Good to know.  I'm talking about routing performance in general.  I 
suspect the main problem is with a strange network configuration on the 
ISP's end which is losing packets.  However, connection problems seem to 
increase with number of users (both wired and wireless), so I am 
suspicious that our router might be playing a part in our problems.
