Slow speed, lag spikes and dropouts

Every so often I get lag and packet loss on my connection. It's really noticeable in some games where I'll get a huge lag spike (ping goes from 30ms up to 1000s of ms).

I checked the router log and I have '84020200 Lost MDD Timeout' and '84000700 RCS Partial Service' errors.

Re: Slow speed, lag spikes and dropouts

Sorry to hear about the connection fault experienced shredward,

 

I've located your account and I'm not able to detect any obvious cause for this via the equipment levels or network segment at the moment.

 

What type of connection is causing you trouble, wireless/Ethernet?

 

Speak to you soon,

Re: Slow speed, lag spikes and dropouts

On the router status page I had bad SNR levels, but I fixed it myself by rearranging some of the equipment. Specifically, when the cable splitter was resting on the floor it affected the SNR levels and re-positioning it made all the downstream snr levels go back to ~40dB

So, broadband all good now.

Re: Slow speed, lag spikes and dropouts

Why on earth would the cable splitter be resting on the floor surely it should be attached to the wall?

But to be honest it resting on the floor should not effect SNR levels unless there is a bad / loose connection make sure everything it thumb tight and connectors are firmly attached.

Currently enjoying my over sold over utilised Virgin Media Vivid 200 gamer package that achieves 15/20 meg during peak times now that's superfast lol.

Just look how poor my BQM monitor is, but Virgin Media simply do not care...

WHAT AN ABSOLUTE JOKE THIS IS.

2 YEARS and counting.


How can any company get away with such long fix times is beyond me and I myself would never treat my customers in such a poor way.
