Sorry to hear you're having trouble with gaming. I've checked your connection and can see no issues. Your power levels, contention and area SNR are all healthy. If this is happening at peak times like the evening and weekends it would usually be down to contention and while this does spike at these times it isn't at a point where we'd raise to networks.
How are you connected to the hub? By wireless or ethernet? Also is this on a console or PC?
Thanks for letting me know. As this is happening wired we can rule out a wireless interference issue.
The next step is to try and narrow down the possible causes. Could you try the hub in modem mode with the PC in safe mode with networking? This will rule out the hubs router functions, devices on the network and any background programs or processes on the PC.
I and several of my friends have this problem also in the Liverpool region.
The pings for gamer's are awful at the moment. I noticed this start happening about 3 weeks ago, it improved for a couple of days and for the last week it's been constant.
Can you confirm this is down to infrastructure changes, are there issues Virgin are having, etc.
If this continues, I'm going to have to get rid of Virgin, as I use it mainly just for:
I can't connect to servers as I get kicked for high pings, its completely useless at the moment to me bar posting this issue and some light web browsing.
RE: contention ration, this has been like this weekdays, weeknights, weekends all hours, so if it was because of high usage I'd of noticed a change of behaviour.
Also its not as if there hasn't been high usage since I had Virgin Broadband for the last 6 years+.
Can we have some meaningful replies from Virgin bar try this, try that. It's your infrastructure not the modem or my router as I know of 5+ problem all have the same problem and theirs started the same time.
Has there been a firmware upgrade to the modem? (Hub)
Have you spoken to the network infrastructure people? Or are you following your check sheets, provided in your training. Can you escalate this past first line support please?
I used to advise people and friends about getting Virgin instead of O2, Sky, etc. But if this experience continues I'm gonna have to tell them not to. In all 6+ years I've never had much of a problem at all, but the service status is a joke nowdays and the lack of meaningful support is left wanting.
I work in I.T., I'm a chief software architect and handle all things AWS so I don't need to hear stuff like are you on wireless? Any gamer with half a brain plays on CAT5e
