I am living in Mexico, and my ISP is Telmex. It's a DSL connection, and the modem and router are combined in one. I've lived in this apartment for several months and this issue only started happening recently.
Randomly throughout the day, my internet will partially cut out. On average it happens maybe 2-3 times an hour, and last 30-60 seconds. Web-pages will not load (chrome gives me the error "oops this page appears to be broken). However my connection isn't entirely severed, because things like Skype will still work during this period. I have also been playing online poker, and been still connected and seeing hands play out during the downtime.
This isn't a problem with my computer specifically, because my roommate's computer and my ipad also won't work when these disconnections occur.
I downloaded a program called InternetConnectivityMonitor and it would register the disconnections when I experienced them. However I was simultaneously doing a ping test (run > ping -t 126.96.36.199) and it never registered a disconnection even when i was experiencing them.
Any suggestions? Thanks
