I have two computers (Macbook, iMac) both running Leopard and my internet speed has been incredibly slow the past several weeks. At times it feels about the same speed as dial-up even though I'm on cable. I just ran a speed test (speedtest.net) and my download speed is 180 kb/s and my upload is 396 kb/s. I have a buffalo router (running dd-wrt) and my own cable modem. I'm not sure where the problem is originating and how to fix it. I am actually writing this post in textedit because I have yet to get the forum page to load. I've hopped into Network Utility to run a traceroute to google.com and it's frequently either timed out or takes several minutes. I started a traceroute to www.google.com and wrote this post..and the traceroute is still running. Here is the log of a ping I just sent out to Yahoo. PING www.yahoo-ht3.akadns.net (188.8.131.52): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_seq=0 ttl=50 time=56.097 ms 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=3 ttl=50 time=55.133 ms 64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_seq=4 ttl=50 time=55.921 ms 64 bytes from 22.214.171.124: icmp_seq=5 ttl=50 time=57.690 ms 64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=6 ttl=50 time=57.718 ms 64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=7 ttl=50 time=55.226 ms 64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_seq=8 ttl=50 time=61.052 ms 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=9 ttl=50 time=56.301 ms --- www.yahoo-ht3.akadns.net ping statistics --- 10 packets transmitted, 8 packets received, 20% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 55.133/56.892/61.052/1.817 ms I'm getting 20% packet loss. I'm not certain how to pinpoint where this problem is originating. So, should I be calling up my ISP and complaining about this, or could this possibly be a setting in dd-wrt that got messed up? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
