Up till now I haven't had the time or energy to put into sniffing or
debugging at all.  But it's getting to be a pain in the @ss, that's
why I'm trying to see if anyone else has these issues.

Here are the locations and hardware:

Home: comcast with linksys cable/dsl router, hard wired (no wifi),
brand new cables, tried multiple cable/dsl routers

Work (over a month ago): over 3 bonded T1 ATM circuits (from local
ISP), using linux hardware firewall, 10/100/1000 Dell poweredge
switches, some servers locally, some servers at remote Tier1

Work (recently): upgraded connection to 10MBit fractional DS3 from
Verizon Business (MCI circuit)

Friends house: dlink cable/dsl router, hard wired
