I'd consider 'none' to be normal.  But keep in mind that you are
always testing the whole round trip even though it is only
reported as the path to something.  If something nearby is
dropping packets it is probably also responsible for the
ones reported on the path to more distant things.  Clean up
the problem with your router before looking anywhere else.

Up until here, everything is clear. I also agree that the router
shouldn't be droping packets.

If you are dropping packets on your ethernet connection to
your own router, you almost certainly have a duplex mismatch
on the switch connection to the router or pc.

Huh? Do you mean a twisted cable (I don't know how you call them in
English, but it's the cable that you use to connect two computers
together instead of computer-router) instead of a regular cable? I'm
pretty sure that it's a regular cable, but I'll check that.

If it is on the T1 side, it is probably overloaded.

For the time being, I've only one machine on the router. So I'm
modem-router-linbox. Which side is T1?

Look for compromised
machines spreading viruses/spam or file sharing.

The only machine on this network at the moment is this linbox. It's a
week-old install at that.

Do you
have access to the router to see the interface statistics
for traffic and errors?

Yes, I've access to the router, and I just enabled the log. It was
apparently disabled until now. This is a home network and I've access
to all the equiptment.

Thank you, Les. I appreciate the time you take to help.
