Internet running slow ... HELP!!!

By stargazerr ·
My office internet has been running slow for 3 days.

No one has any kind of file sharing software in use. I have reset the modem. Tried a ping to the company website ... I got a request timed out and 3 replies. I tried a trace route and got a request timed out on the 12th hop.

On top of everything else .... there are too many hops and the ping is taking 648 ms. Any ideas?

What does your provider say?

call them first.

What about LAN connectivity? Has that been affected at all?

Look at your switches. If you see any of the lights flashing much more than the rest, it might have a bad NIC and is flooding the LAN.

and yes, look at your DNS.
