Let me make it more clear.
I have a small WISP. I get my internet connection vai several wireless
links/towers. My main server is located in my house. My own PC and the
Server in question (in the example) are separated by a router in my
house (different subnets). Server is fresh install of CentOS 6.3, all
Now, when there was power failure (works on the transformer there), I
lost my internet connection, but router and wireless routers for the
rest of my towers were accessible. SSH logins to any of them is instant.
But when I tried to login to my server, it was not instantenous, and I
think it was 15+, maybe even 30+ seconds (I forgot to time it) from
start of ssh command to password prompt. It is in-house connection, so
there is nothing to traceroute.
Past experience was, separate from this example, that a CentOS 5.x
server in one company slows access, temporary timeout to SAMBA file
server when wireless router connecting them to internet is turned off,
although they are in local lan with static IP's.
