ARP Spoofing report

On a sporadic basis (1 - 2 times per month minimum) my internet bogs down making it hard to connect to websites, send email and or connect to online games. With ARP spoofing turned on in GW I see hundreds of occasions reporting ARP table change. This typically lasts about 30 - 45 minutes. Initially I thought it had to do with the Shaw/Rogers merger but one of their techs says not so.

Is it possible something in my network could be setting this off. Any thoughts would be helpful as I don’t really understand what is happening when this reporting starts. I believe if I turn off that reporting the conditions (poor connectivity) would still occur I just wouldn’t understand the cause.

Thank you

While ARP spoofing reporting can be useful for identifying issues, disabling it temporarily can help determine if it’s the cause of the connectivity problems. If the issues persist without the reporting, it may be a deeper network problem. If you’ve ruled out issues within your network, reach out to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to check if there are any issues on their end. They might be able to provide insights into network disruptions. Periods of poor connectivity may also be due to network congestion. This can happen if many devices are using the network simultaneously. Try to identify patterns and see if the connectivity issues correlate with specific times or activities.
