Modem stats seem within normal since I moved the splitters (the High speed internet cable was on a second splitter. I moved it up to the top and the numbers went back to normal on the modem. I was able to make a phone call Sunday night before midnight, but today was unable again, even though the modem signal is about the same as it was after I moved it up on the connection.

And just for good measure, tracert results to same site seem to be able to report on the router and modem


Tracing route to []
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 3 ms 2 ms 2 ms
2 * * * Request timed out.
3 10 ms 11 ms 9 ms
4 11 ms 9 ms 11 ms
5 13 ms 10 ms 9 ms
6 13 ms 11 ms 12 ms
7 15 ms 15 ms 14 ms []
8 14 ms 30 ms 21 ms []
9 14 ms 14 ms 14 ms []
10 13 ms 15 ms 15 ms []

11 13 ms 14 ms 14 ms
12 16 ms 20 ms 14 ms
13 26 ms 23 ms 16 ms
14 16 ms 15 ms 14 ms

Trace complete.

Questions: Is it normal to see errors on the first two hops for pingplotter (my router and modem)
Is it normal to see a timeout on the modem on tracert?
Are discarded packets outside the boundaries of normal?
My modem is docsis 1.1. I just bought it a few months ago. Will replacing it help?
What should I do next? I am not sure I understand the suggestions to slow down the packets.
