Try a "tcpdump -w" of all your traffic for a few days.  Poke around
the file with wireshark.  Any DOS attacks should stand out like a sore

Since you mention browsers, have you ruled out that your ISP isn't
screwing you by forcing a proxy on all tcp/80 traffic?  It wouldn't be
the first time an ISP tried to increase their network efficiency by
forcefully inserting some ill-behaved and overloaded proxy into their
customer's data streams.
