Trouble with the home internet connection lately. I think I've isolated the problem down to my matrix homeserver periodically making thousands of DNS lookups since I recently join a couple rooms with 1000+ members. Then I start seeing routing issues and packet loss.

I currently have a budget NIC in my pfSense host and see it drop a lot of packets when this happens. I just put a local unbound DNS caching server on the matrix host to see if this will help.
