Re: [VA] Frequent, Short Disruptions in Connectivity

Agreed, thats why I was open to the idea that Carbonite or something on my computers may be causing it. But we've ruled all that out.

Just talked to the technician who was working across the street. He's also set up a visit to our node. His theory is the same as yours -- that there is a house somewhere on our node where some sort of home appliance is introducing interference back out to our node.

Thanks for your interest, I will certainly post back whatever happens.

Just an update in case anyone with similar issues is following this thread.

Every 12-13 minutes, for a period of about 6 seconds, my latency spikes as high as 8 seconds. Pings will come back, if wait time is set long enough. (See example below.)

The field service contractor returned to my neighborhood 2 days after the first visit, and replicated the problem by connecting a modem direct to the node at the pedestal in our area.

They have finally agreed to escalate this as it is clearly a problem outside the house. (Something they promised to do 2 days ago.)

As it is the day before christmas, they said not to expect any activity until Wednesday.

Field supervisor duplicated problem at the tap, 3 days ago. Multiple calls to Cox, multiple promises that someone will call me back, still no progress.

Problem was fixed sometime yesterday. What a relief.

Thanks to those on this thread who offered help and suggestions.

To those with similar issues: stay at it, keep calling, and dont accept "this is normal" for an answer.
