Random Spikes of Packet Loss?

Im getting loads of random spikes of sudden extreme packet loss where I just cant play online games anymore, im just jumping all over the place. Sometimes my ping shoots up too, sometimes it doesn't. I've tried monitoring it but its just so random its hard to trace.

Cant see much on the log, any ideas?

Re: Random Spikes of Packet Loss?

Lots don't get how VM upto rate limiting works its simple but router mode or use own router will buffer in the super hub for your upto limits such that any connected device doing like a 10 second download or upload that hits your upto limit can cause all traffic to buffer.

You can limit this by doing your own QoS in your router.

It is possible there are other reasons but mostly thats the main reason if you have a super hub 1 in router mode you may need to reboot where modem mode you do not or wireless which will cause problems for gaming.

if needed you can setup a BQM

Re: Random Spikes of Packet Loss?

Is ms time between 7-15ms with no timeouts? And that you have one device connected?

If not have only one wired device connected and disable the wireless in the super hub.

When your ping times show fine have it still running as you will now understand how VM upto rate limiting works by running this speed test.
https://www.dslreports.com/speedtest
as this is running check your ping you will likely see it spike when the download or upload happens this is what happens to all your traffic when you hit your upto limit with VM and its normal and anything can cause this. To limit this from happening you can get your own router with QoS to limit this from happening to all your traffic by not hiting your upto limit VM sets in the super hub.
