I was getting 20% TCP packet loss between two of my unix boxes on the
TWC route from my house to work, so I called support. 

I used lft - like tcptraceroute - both directions, to identify a TWC
backbone router in Dallas as the problem. I then used the TWC looking
glass to show the same result. 

I was told i needed to reboot my router to troubleshoot. I offered to
reboot my router, after he rebooted his router in Dallas  ;)
