Re: Dreadful Packet Loss - Ongoing issue that is not going to go away VM!

Further evidence, if more was required, that packet loss is ocurring at exactly the same time as a drop in connection speed (obviously).

Ping plotter running to google.com and uTorrent downloading Ubuntu Desktop

About 20-23 seconds in to the video the speed of the download craps out at the same point that packet loss to Google occurs.

I have been getting packet loss for just over a week now and its getting worse. Getting to the point that I'm looking at other suppliers for broadband and TV.

heres latest bqm for my connection

The speed isn't the issue as that is fine its the packet loss that is screwing up multiplayer games to the point they become unplayable below is dslreports.coms speed test. I have capped upload as the bloat was horrendous but my router won't allow download capping.

 I'm in ayrshire in smallworlds old franchise which was bought by virgin 2 years ago. Smallworld at least acknowledged faults and didn't deny that something was wrong.

Shut down Utorrent. Test.

The only thing running pingplotter whilst Utorrent is active will tell us is that HUB's have no QOS, which we know. If you are gaming with Utorrent running, your latency will be truly horrible.

On a seperate but related note, Utorrent+large swarms= HUB falling over unless you know what you are doing with upper connection limits.

Your packet loss is constant so your line needs to be checked.

The Utorrent is another issue.

Re: Dreadful Packet Loss - Ongoing issue that is not going to go away VM!

I'm not daft enough to attempt running uTorrent (used only for new linux distros btw Smiley Happy) and online gaming at the same time Smiley Very Happy

Given my background in IT Infrastructure, I'm pretty confident in my ability to set max connections on uT (currently at 2k), but uT was only running as an example of a consistent download load on the connection while demonstrating the packet loss in conjunction.

Interestingly enough, I too am in the previously Smallworld serviced area (North Ayrshire), however I do understand that this issue is not limited to this one geographical region.

I'm in troon too suffering the problem and my friend was in Kilmarnock so that sounds like more than a coincidence

Re: Dreadful Packet Loss - Ongoing issue that is not going to go away VM!

Derby area here. An Xbox 360 network test reports an average of 160ms of latency where previously (as of about 3 weeks ago) it was 18ms or so. This is also affecting Network Time Protocol (NTP) services (see graph below). The blue line in the image should be horizontal, flat and up at the 20 on the right hand side of the scale. Since the latency went all to heck, it's up and down like a yoyo in a lift. I've seen NTP experts blame this on Virgin Media's upstream provider (NTT, I think). Why is this relevant? Because online gaming and NTP both use UDP.
