Hi, get lag spikes in game. I think it may be something to do with my connection. DMZ, port forwarded. Looking at my downstream connection I get high pre RS errors. Can this be fixed would it cause lag spikes.
You will get the usual answer of "because those a pre-RS errors those are fixed on the fly, and everything is working as intended" while they ignore the reality that they shouldn't be happening at all.
14kish for your 2nd channel isn't the highest I have seen. One time I had it in the millions and got the above answer.
Mine is around the same for the 2nd channel too, but I live far away from you so
Its not so much the "extra strain" put on the router- packets have to go through error checking anyway, its more that it could be symptomatic of another issue.
As DabHand says, in an ideal world you wouldn't get ANY. VM will have their own limits for when to investigate. Best thing to do is wait for staff to pick it up and run some checks...In the meantime can you set up a BQM

You might be forgiven for thinking so. But if you read up on how Reed Solomon works, you'll find out that this in-line circuitry with the anding, oring or noring of bits according to the nature of the discrepancy. I've simplified this but there is no delay or increase in latency with pre-RS errros when there are no post-RS errors.
Dabs says they shoudn't happen. Most of then happen when the modem is rebooted, in the few moments when the modem is not synch'd and can't understand the data that comes streaming in. Bear in mind everything on your node for everyone comes into your modem and in-line filtering masks a BPI+ value (established for your connection during the boot process) onto each symbol header and only allows data through that matches the BPI+ code. There's millions hitting your modem all the time. A few Pre-RS errors are inevitable and guaranteed during boot-up.
