Packet loss/errors/lag spikes etc-Area 22

I'm new to virgin and i must say i'm greatly disappointed by the service so far. 

I thought i'm getting better internet than BT but so far all i got is issues. I have kids complaining since Saturday that they cant play Fortnite because they constantly lag. I can see from forum lots of people here have issues with service and lag spikes. If this does not improve in couple of days i will have to cancel.

Where abouts in Area 22 are you.

I am near Romford, and have NO issues, NO LAG, FULL SPEED.

Yes VM is faster than BT, but if your using the SH3 in router mode and gaming, I can understand.

My VM SH3 is in Modem mode, with an external Router.

My advice is at your own risk.

The lag spikes are real mate, just look at the modem reports with all this errors and warnings

Re: Packet loss/errors/lag spikes etc-Area 22

Your partial logs seem to suggest you have had a couple T3 errors in about a week, no evidence of lag.
The DHCP errors you can ignore as it is just the way VM renew their DHCP leases.

To monitor any lag on the internet connection start a Broadband Quality Monitor.
I take it you are connecting devices directly to the Hub by ethernet cable.

Do a web search of puma 6 test, and run it. If you get more red than green, then its the chipset issue in the SH3.

Re: Packet loss/errors/lag spikes etc-Area 22

Hi Bangobee,

Thanks for getting in touch. I am sorry to see you have had trouble with your connection.

 

I have taken a look and things seem to be ok from this side. It may help to try the following so we can rule some things out:

Pop the hub into Modem Mode with the computer in Safe Mode with Networking at different times of the day.

Try on separate devices.

Check Ethernet cable. Make sure it is new / up to date. (Cat 5e or above).

Make sure device is capable of agreed speed.

Check wireless card slide.

Take care.
