Yeah, it looks like my provider. I have 528/128 DSL. Theoretically.

Ping times are sux0rs, I'm seeing results like

17 packets transmitted, 10 packets received, 41% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 41.8/93.0/533.3 ms

I tried bypassing my firewall, and direct-connecting from both linux and 
winduhs, with similar results. 

It's an intermittent problem, which adds to the fun. Guess I'll fire up 
ethereal and see what I can capture.
