Run traceroute to various places and note where the delays or

every router in the path and the round trip time for three

if it picks up on subsequent hops.  Keep in mind that the
time is for the round trip and problems can happen in either
direction.  If you see consistent delays or drops happening
somewhere, paste the traceroute into an email to your ISP.

Thanks, Les. I started doing mtr, and discovered that the router is
dropping ~2% of the packets, the infrastructure is dropping ~14% of
the packets, and the ISP is dropping ~8% of the packets. all the other
hops are losing between 2% to 10% as well. What values are considered
normal? Thanks.
