Re: [VA] Frequent, Short Disruptions in Connectivity

Tech not here yet, but I have new info.

Using Net Uptime Monitor, I have determined that I have a 5-6 second failure every 13 minutes.

I have been able to measure this consistently through my router AND when directly connected to the modem.

The failure occurs every 13 minutes like clockwork, EVEN IF the modem was powered down for part of the time in between failures.

While this doesn't definitively rule out the modem, I think it points to something external to me.

Does anything take place over the network on 13 minute intervals?

(PS - I have NetUptimeMonitor running a ping every second. It rotates them among 3 servers, and logs failures when the responses exceed 200ms)
