Lost Packets

I've been using White Pine 2.01 and Windows 95 on several different
reflectors at varying times of day. When I check the packet loss window
on various senders I'm frequently seeing packet losses of 60%, sometimes
more. I've got a 28.8 modem and have the receive set for about 24kbs
which is a little slower than normal connect. But this setting doesn't
seem to make much difference.

Where are these packets going? Is this an ISP problem or is it just the
state of the net these days? Color doesn't work at all well with half
the packets lost!
