I am sorry you are still having this problem. I thought you had already
found a solution. Maybe its the bits are going right to left and not
left to right (sorry a private joke related to Dotan being in Israel)

I just tried something that might help. I pinged my router. No packets
lost.  If you do that you could eliminate traffic from your machine to
the router. Then as was suggested a combination of ping and traceroute
should pinpoint where on the route trace the packets are beginning to be
lost. It seems to me that would localize the problem.

As an OT comment I was sorry to hear Haifa was now being attacked. I
hope that has not impacted your life too much. I read a story that there
is a Hasidic sect in Jerusalem that each night goes out on "Hitbodadut"
to be alone to scream. That is want I want to do when I think of the
situation is your region of the world at this time.
