I isolated the router and ran a continuous ping to
Here are the results. It seems that there is an issue with the connection dropping.

Over what time frame was that?

I don't know exactly. Probably a couple of minutes?

OK, try watching the modem lights and/or log to see if PPP or the DSL link is dropping.

Just did another ping test direct from the modem admin screen (this time with filter and phone also connected to the same jackpoint) and the result was 24% packet loss (24 packets from a total of 100) when pinging The lights stayed green the whole time.

I would ring them to ensure your port on the msan is set correctly

johny99: I would ring them to ensure your port on the msan is set correctly

If I use exactly those words I'm guessing they'll know what I'm talking about? Because I have absolutely no idea :)

If the DSL and PPP lights are both staying lit during the problem time, it's more likely to be a problem external to your home.

When doing those tests, make sure that you just have the one computer connected, by ethernet (not WiFi), to make sure there isn't something else hogging all the bandwidth while you are testing.

If you still get the same results, go back to the ISP's helpdesk, and advise them of that packet loss, and how you did the test.

if you ask them to check the port profile, they will know what you mean.
