Re: Huge packet losses on SBCGlobal/AT&T (U-Verse)

If you can identify the IP address of the actual streaming server (it probably isn't 'tvriver.com', or the login server) you run 'tracert' from a Windows command prompt. Be aware that figuring out which, of a myriad of IP connections, is the streaming server isn't easy.

In order to rule out local connection issues, follow ILpt4U See Profile's suggestion. It will be quicker and easier; and, if it points to a fixable problem, you won't have to figure out a trace route target.

TVRiver gave me an IP address to test the connection (not certain if it is the IP of the streaming server). During daylight hours I am connecting at over 11 Mbps, after 5:30 PM Today (and generally during Evening hours) it drops to below 1.5 Mbps. The IP address is a mini speedtest webpage - "http://38.126.41.221/speedtest/".
I am afraid that the set-top box I have for accessing the streaming service does not have a proxy field (probably finding a proxy server IP is not that difficult). I will dig in the settings of the box and if I can add a proxy I will try to do it this way.
Will try the rest of the suggestions as well, thanks to all of you for all the help!

FWIW, tracing to their diagnostic IP address from a Sonic.net "Fusion" connection (ADSL2+/Interleaved) in San Jose, California:
