Internet Slowed To Crawl?

About 12 noon-ish today (up through the time of this posting at 5:47 pm), my internet connection suddenly slowed to a crawl. I reset the router/modem (Cisco DPQ3925) several times, rebooted the computer, changed the DNS numbers (fixed and assigned), released & renewed the IPs, literally everything you're supposed to do, and nothing worked. 

All I can figure at this point is that there's a problem on the Cox end of things, or the router/modem is starting to suffer hardware failure.

    We've been having the exact same problem. A trace revealed it is a Cox issue, specifically two servers in New York and Rhode Island.
