Well it's interesting as in bad. I pinged 192.168.0.4 and got a 15%
packet loss! That is from laptop to wireless router to another router
and then this computer. From this computer to the laptop it is a total
loss. 18 pings and zero return.
So it is back to the drawing board. Thanks for reminding me about
ping. I'm using DHSL which should not cause the problem. So it might be
the WiFi that is.
