could anyone here please check through this Wireshark log for me and see if they can spot anything which can cause a modem/router to temporarily "drop" the Internet connection? The behavior during the connection drop is similar to that of when the modem/router is manually reset, except with this issue, the link is re-established much faster but connectivity is still lost altogether for a period of roughly 30-45 seconds.

The lights on my router remain the same as they are during normal operation, so this issue appears to be causing some kind of "internal overload"(?) which causes a temporary drop but not a full-on reset.

I am having this issue with an Xbox 360 game (Battlefield 4) and it has become extremely frustrating. Some days I can play without problems, and on others I am constantly being kicked offline because of this issue. I've tried numerous "fixes" but nothing has worked.

If you can suggest a remedy for something like this, please do. If you can also skim through this log and see if you find anything which may be the culprit, that'd be greatly appreciated as well.
