As soon as we describe the procedure in plain text more clearly, it
would be relatively easy
to add a flowchart (I could do it). IMHO if we could not draw a
flowchart based on the text, it means that
troubleshooting steps are not defined clear enough :)
So let's concentrate on the defining the procedure and then I'll add a
flow chart.

I'd be happy to join.

Packet capture might be tricky as the user machine might not have any
sniffer installed.
However I believe we could expect even first level support engineer to
be able to run
the well-defined set of commands (such as traceroute, netstat and
ifconfig) - they don't need to
understand the output, just provide it while escalating.
