    Yes, I said somewhere among these posts that the modem is new.
    I changed it twice, actually.

    Another day with a solid connection.
    Huh, maybe it did take some time for all the stuff to fit in, so to speak.
    Continuing tracing, nonetheless.

    Judging from the fact that none of the issues on that graph show up on the first hop (except the one you note that you caused yourself) but look exactly the same from the second hop and on suggests to me that any issues are most likely on your ISP's network.

    However, it's not terribly conclusive if you didn't really have the issues during that time period. Hopefully you don't have the issues any more, but if you do that graph may be a little more illuminating.

    Take a look in your hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\) and if there is anything below the following that you did not add, post it here.
    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    # For example:
    #     rhino.acme.com          # source server
    #     x.acme.com              # x client host
    # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
    #       localhost
    #	::1             localhost
    You should also check what DNS server your router is looking at. It should either be set to automatically obtain from your ISP or googling the IP should point to your ISP.

    Have you tried another computer on this connection to determine where the problem is?

    You said that you've replaced the modem a couple of times, have you tried a different router yet?

    It's Monday morning, and there was packet loss around 09:00 AM, totaling to around half an hour of poor connection. The packet loss was also on the first hop, but a way more minor when compared to other hops.
    At the time, I was also downloading something, and the packet loss was the biggest then. I restarted the modem/router, and tried downloading a game of Steam a few minutes ago, and the connection was solid.
    I will post the graph in the evening, I want at least another 10 hours traced, to have all peak hours in.

    Other than that, the connection is good.

    It looks absolutely the same like the one you posted.

    Googling my IP doesn't seem to work, but I could be doing something wrong. I'm sorry, this all is still a bit confusing, and I'm relatively a "noob"at this.

    Yes, I've tried my laptop, and it's generally been stable.
    But so has it been on my computer too, for a last few days, since I've changed the motherboard.

    But I haven't tried with anything else.

    Well, yes, the modem is also a router at the same time.

    well from the graph you posted in the spoilers tags i am going to make some guesses

    1) that is your home router.

    any spikes to this invalidate any further data for that time frame and says your problem is local.

    2) this cannot be your default gateway from your ISP. 10.x.x.x is internal address space, unless you purchased a package from your ISP that does not give you external internet IP address.

    if on the other hand #2 is your ISP default gateway, i have to wonder why they are giving you a 10.x ip. technically that should be non-addressable for you.

    Typing the number from hop #1 in address bar opens up a Cisco page with various information about my router, so I think that's my default.

    Table for today.
