Hello,

We switched from Comcast 3 years ago and have been happy with Sonic Fiber until about 6 months ago when it started dropping connections intermittently. We've followed the trouble-shooting guide and isolated the problem to Sonic, my son opened a ticket, but nothing was resolved. The following PING log shows the symptom, ping times are normal 90% of the time, but go up dramatically for short periods. This is with the host connected directly to the Sonic supplied router (no WIFI). Suggestions would be appreciated. We have tried multiple ping hosts including google.com & sonic.com with similar results.

target Host = sun.com .log

I see the spike in latency but that shouldn't cause any connections to drop. What exactly drops?

HTTP connections time out or are painfully slow. Google Chrome says we are disconnected from the Internet. I'm using Ping as a blunt diagnostic tool in this case. I understand that TCP/IP is designed to be resilient, but the latency jitter shows something is wrong with the connection. Tracert shows the first hop from the router to Sonic can be very slow.
