Poor Internet, 3 times in 5 days.

I've had temporary "slowness" outages 3 times in the last 5 days at my location. In these incidents, the internet goes to a complete crawl and pages either partially load, or never load at all. I know it's none of my equipment as the situation resolves itself, sometimes in minutes, sometimes in hours. Today though, just to double check, I ran a traceroute to see where the problem might be. Results:


  1     2 ms     2 ms     1 ms  DD-WRT []

  2     6 ms     6 ms     6 ms

  3     *        *        *     Request timed out.

  4   164 ms     *        * [


  5     *        *      206 ms [



As can be seen in the above copy/paste, I can get to what appears to be my local shaw "node" just fine, but then it tanks from there. As I said, this has happened 3 times in 5 days and is driving me nuts.


I hope someone from shaw reads this and is made aware of the problem here.


Thank you.
