Re: [FiOS] Very high pings in pacific NW

I've noticed this issue every few months or so. A reboot solves it. Not sure what the root cause is. If you find out, post it

·Frontier FiOS

When I had similar issues with the router locking up frequently, I swapped out my router for a Linksys E4200 router, cloned the MAC address and didn't have to worry about it again (I fortunately have Ethernet drop-off). The Actiontec routers that Verizon used to offer prior to the take over were terrible. I don't know what they're handing out these days, but you can get a MOCCA compatable third party router if you're on Coax now too (Motorola has a few, for example) and have something where the software will get at least a couple of updates during its lifespan.
