It's weird. I'm not able to find issues via traceroute, but my outbound websurfing is having all sorts of issues. Some HK sites can be reached reliably. I've found 1 Taiwan http mirror for dragonflybsd, which had a steady connection, but everything else is either loading very very very VERY slowly or not loading at all. hotmail.com and mail.yahoo.com and pretty much all foreign news and blogs have all become some sort of tar pit which never finish loading completely.
Seems like the dsl router needed rebooting. So there's a new IP and the wait for DNS to catch up, but it's nice to be able to surf again.
