Pathping dropped packets

I am using pathping and noticing on multiple sites that between my Checkpoint firewall and the router supplied by the ISP I am seeing about 30% loss. I am unsure if this is because the router is dropping the packets or if the router is going into a stealth mode and not replying to the packets after X amount of pings which is throwing out the stats.

Do you have SNMP monitoring of the Checkpoint?  that should be able to detect if there is packet loss when not using the pathping command.  Alternatively, you should be able to call the IPS and ask them to produce a report showing and dropped or lost packets on the ISP's router port.

You can do a monitor capture on the router if it is a cisco router with the proper IOS level. This will give you wireshark level packet capture on the interface needed to solve your issue.  This is only if it is a cisco router.
