Packet Loss in Apex Legends

Hi guys,

I've had a new router fitted by Virgin in the last few months, and I've had issues with connecting to matches and major packet loss (Up to 70% lost) in some matches. It happens to my Apex Legends games on my PC, and my brother also gets the same issues on his Xbox Series X.

Before the new router, I don't remember having as much of an issue. Resetting the router doesn't seem to solve the issue, as that has been done multiple times since the router was installed.

Hope someone can help with some troubleshooting methods for me.

Many thanks!

Hi TheRedTomato,

Thank you for reaching out to us in our community and welcome back, sorry to hear both you and your Brother are facing packet loss when playing Apex Legends on your Console and Gaming PC.

How are you both connecting, is it WIFI or a Wired connection, do you have issues with any other devices?

Regards

Paul.

Re: Packet Loss in Apex Legends

Hi Paul,

Thank you for coming back to me!

The PC is wired through a powerline adapter to the router, and the Xbox can be either connected to the WIFI or wired through a powerline adapter.

In regards to issues with other devices, I can't think of anything unusual to mention unfortunately.

I look forward to your reply!

Liam

Re: Packet Loss in Apex Legends

Hi @TheRedTomato

 

Thank you for your response

 

Do you experience the issue across other devices? I've looked today and can't see any power or signal levels out of spec. How has your connection been over the past few days?

Hi Travis,

Thank you for your reply!

We're not suffering with any major issues with other devices at this time. If anything pops up, I'll keep you posted.

In regards to Apex, I've been playing some games today on the PC and I've not had any issues as of yet. My brother on the Xbox on the other hand has been having issues with packet loss and not joining games today.

I look forward to your reply!

Re: Packet Loss in Apex Legends

Hi all,

Just an update on my situation.

I previously mentioned that I have not had issues recently on Apex with my PC. However, the issues are still occuring. I was just lucky had a two day break with no problems. I'm still getting big packet loss on some games and sometimes I'm on joining games altogether.

Hopefully someone can help, cheers!

Re: Packet Loss in Apex Legends

Hi @TheRedTomato,

I'm sorry to hear that these issues returned for you. I've checked on our systems and I'm unable to see any issues being detected on the line currently. Are things any better for you today?

If not, would you be able to set up and share with us a live BQM so we can see your connection in real-time?

Thanks,

Re: Packet Loss in Apex Legends

Apologies for the issues faced TheRedTomato,

Welcome back to the community.

From checking currently everything seems to be in spec.

Are you still facing issues? If so are you able to reboot the system and check cables? As your uptime is around 14+ days.

Thanks,

Kain

Re: Packet Loss in Apex Legends

Under Advanced Settings>Security>Firewall - deselect Firewall. Then check the BQM to see if there’s any change.
