Hi. I've been noticed that I have some packet loss when I do ping from our 3Com router 5642 to the default gateway of our provider.

--- 10.162.66.185 ping statistics ---
5 packet(s) transmitted
4 packet(s) received
20.00% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/3 ms
We did the last mile between our provider and us and once I called them because I felt network slow. They told me that could be the packet loss (20%) that make the Internet slow and I should verify this. Is really a 20% of packet loss that ocurrs sometimes, a major problem for our Internet conection??
Thanks in advanced
