Just a reminder that rebooting does help. My home network was experiencing slowness and lag. Xbox games were having issues, etc. Started pings to various sites and they all looked this way. Even to the provider’s DNS. I rebooted the CPE and all is well. Sometimes it’s the simple things.
For those of you who don’t know about MTR traceroute it can be a very helpful diagnostic tool. MTR is a visual application that combines the functionality of the traceroute and ping in a single network diagnostic tool.
If you are a Mac user like me MTR is available through homebrew.
