The GRF has a highly tweakable TCP/IP stack.  For example, by default
router will only respond to 10 ICMP packets/second (but that number can
changed in grinchd.conf, I think).  The router can be passing packets 
normally, and if someone is ping flooding an interface on the router, 
your own (or your customer's) ping to the router can fail miserably. 
is not really a router problem.

There are some very good Netstar engineers in Minneapolis (if they
all frozen to death).  Seek one of them out.
