Constant Internet Outages

For many months now I've been having intermittent internet connectivity that seems to be impossible for cox to detect or resolve.  When i called COX support they would ping my router once and state nothing was wrong.  They would cycle the power a couple of times ping the modem and state there isn't an issue.  I was unsuccessful in getting the L1 Help Desk to escalate or open a ticket to look into the internet problems, but maybe I'm just wrong.  I have purchased a new modem/router and upgraded my service with COX and none have been able to resolve my problem.

It looks like I'm getting severe packet loss on hop 5 and I'm not sure if there is anything I can do on my end.

    In classic Cox style, get ready for them to suggest you "reboot your modem" to magically fix all their service issues.

    Are you able to bypass the router and run a traceroute? If so reboot the modem before connecting the device you're using to run the test.
