I have been able to stream with no problems up untill the last week. I also play alot of Remote play together with friends and it has all been flawless. However in the past week had nothing but problems. At first I thought it was to do with my friends connection. Howerver I then did some stream tests and it was horrible. in OBS I am getting huge packet loss. So I searched these forums for answers. I have the M200 Fibre boardband withe Hub 3.0.
Yesterday my PC started loosing connection to the Hub 3.0. I am using an ethernet connection. I restarted the router and the usual diagnostic steps of power cycling. I had to run the troubleshoot in network settings in Windows 10 to get it to connect and last night this got exceptionally bad and i had very unstable connection. I struggled to connect to the Hub 3.0. Anyway I then left it for a while and managed to get back on to it.
Some other things I done was run the Virgin service Test. It said on the service status that there were no issues. However when I ran the test It only got to 25% and then said there was some sort of network issue and told me to make sure the Hub 3.0 was plugged in with power cord (lol?) and to check connections. I did, but they are all solid. It has not moved since install.
(The 100% drops are when I was rebooting router etc)
I was not online all night, yet It is still showing packet loss.
All the info from router status will be in next post.
I have done speed tests and the download seems fine but the upload is varied quite a bit from 6-17. However its not the speed seems to be the issue, its the packet loss, making streaming or playing on Steam Remote Play impossible. In the past I could stream at 1440p on OBS at 12mbps no problems whats so ever. Now I have OBS set to 3mbps and its unwatchable, constantly OBS is dropping packets.
Any help greatly appreciated. I understand VM call centres closed. I do wonder if this is all related to network traffic being congested.
