Begin that packet loss doesn't continue past that hop it looks to me like the router is simply discarding ICMP packets due to de-prioritization.
Ahh, makes sense. Would the same explanation apply to the packet loss on the first hop ping of the second link (ip 22.214.171.124)? I've had packet loss to that ip on all my line quality tests with the exception of 1 (first link in the op).
