Cool;(cool as in I'm not the only one,not cool for sh*%y internet connections)
there is something definitely happening with the tcp connection.,
After looking more at the situation
I get a good connection when just streaming music, but as soon as I
watch with flash or even search through firefox
I'm getting a dead period of no internet, and then a few seconds later
no problems.Almost as if some timer in the code is missing something
or not firing off at the right time.
At this point I'm still uncertain with what is happening.
