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.
