i found this thread http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=197398 while i was searching the net. i am experiencing a similar situation with my ADSL connection. where my router at times goes 'very busy' and my connection becomes painfully slow. when i use wireshark it shows a lot of tcp retransmissions. and this traffic makes up about 80% of what wireshark captures! all these packets have the same source address(which is some remote ip) and the destination is my public ip(router's ip). so i was wondering how things worked out for wat0114 with the above problem? did you find a solution or any reason for what you were experiencing? i tried to PM wat0114 but PMs were not allowed + i cannot reply to the old thread either, hence the thread. thanks!
