I'm currently pinging
google.com to find a trend and pinpoint the problem. The internet keeps disconnecting every few mins and I have no idea why.
What I realised is that between every 4-6 pings I get one
request timeout, and sometimes the latency goes up to
time=100 and above or
time=1000 and above, in which the internet's speed becomes really slow. Sometimes I get 4 or more timeouts in one succession. I also observed that the latency is low and steady (with minor fluctuations) if I'm not browsing anything, as soon as I hit refresh or load a page the whole thing goes into a spiral of timeouts and very high latency.
However, restarting my connection by toggling WiFi on and off quickly resets the connection and I get good latency, that until the whole process repeats.
Anyone knows what may be the problem ? I am at a serviced apartment with Wifi shared on multiple channels. Also, I have a Retina without the Ethernet adapter, so I cannot check that right now.
edit It's 4AM in the morning and I have no timeouts and pretty quick latency, I'm sure this finding has some value.
