I am methodically plodding along this path.  Thanks thus far.  A couple 
of the recommendations including HG staff are to use traceroute. With 
Ubuntu Linux I should be able to do that via command line or using the 
network monitor package.  Unfortunately it will only trace to my 
Actiontec router, then splats out.  I checked this via both my regular 
desktop and a freshly installed laptop - same results.

syncsync:~/Desktop> traceroute www.google.com
traceroute to www.google.com (, 30 hops max, 40 byte packets

 2  * * *
 3  * * *
 4  * * *
 5  * * *
 6  * * *

I took a look into the router set up but don't see where there is any 
firewall stuff enable to prevent it from working but then this is not my 
skillset.  Suggestions?

Ping has been bouncing around from 0 to 50% packet loss this morning.  
Last night network response was on steroids, not today.
