Home dsl has been crap while I'm at work, yesterday and today. I got home yesterday and everything was mellow, nothing to debug. The fucked up thing is that pings are fast and there appears to be no packet loss.

PING alethe.net ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=61 time=33.56 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=61 time=30.098 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=61 time=31.394 ms

Doubly fucked up is that the router is showing minimal traffic (via mrtg). This view is upheld by webalizer which shows no upwardly swinging web traffic on any of the machines sitting on the network. Of course, it could be other traffic, but it's not showing up anywhere. Specifically not on the router, which is what everything has to pass through. So...

Mild weirdness is that VNC performs somewhat normally (no, I don't normally run it, but I wanted to check some settings on a windows box).

generic scp seems alright; I'm getting 64KB. Yesterday when I was experiencing otherwise the same problem, I could only get .8KB throughput. rebooting my machine just to feel like I've tried ... something. It had better come back up or I'm going to need to take a long lunch break. ;) [[having alethe.net down has not made access to any of the other machines on the network faster... maybe I'll try rebooting my windows box.]] 112 seconds to go from shutdownnotpingable to awakepingable. restarted the windows box. no change.
