Help with extreme packet loss

I have been experiencing extreme consistent dropped connection and packet loss now most days for the last month. Having phoned Virgin multiple times I have gone through the many tedious resets, unplugs etc etc which clearly are not fixing anything.

I have a monitor setup - Screenshot 2021-04-09 at 20.55.12.png

Any help would be massively appreciated - I cannot work properly, stream or play games. The service is essentially useless as stands.

Thanks

Re: Help with extreme packet loss

I had this happen to me, but a lot worse on the BQM, just a question, do you have anyone in your house connected to the WiFi at the same time as you are online, maybe a laptop or another desktop at all?

I only ask as my Packet loss was being caused by my Son's laptop, which was connected via WiFi, I only found out after I saw a pattern in the packet loss and his time on his laptop, so I got him to do a full factory reset on it ( his laptop ) and my connection went back to normal.  We think he downloaded a virus of sorts which caused huge packet loss.

Re: Help with extreme packet loss

Thanks for the response! It seems to happen all the time regardless of devices - sometimes it is only when my phone is connected, others just my laptop and others just my Xbox. Cannot see any pattern other than everything losing connection repeatedly!

Re: Help with extreme packet loss

Very messy BQM. lets look at some connection data.
__________________________________________
Post up your Hub/network connection details and someone will check to see if there is a problem there.  In your browser’s URL box type in http://192.168.0.1  (or http://192.168.100.1 - if in modem mode) and hit return. On the first page up [there should be no need to login if you have done so before unless you have the New Hub4 when you do] click on the “router status” icon/text at bottom-middle of first page up and then copy/paste as “Formatted Text” (not images) 3 FULL sets of data onto here – 2 pages from the Downstream, 2 from the Upstream, & the Network Logs page. Don't worry too much about the formatting it can be easily read & DON’T include personal data or MAC addresses - blank them out - if you copy/paste the data, the board software will do this for you (you may need to click the "submit" button again.

Re: Help with extreme packet loss

OK - stats all look ok buy logs look bad. Can you post a link to the BQM's "share live graph" so the time periods concur.

I think someone from VM needs to looka t your connection in more detail - but lets see the live BQM

Your upstream is out of spec too.

Your going to need a engineer.

You could try a pin hole reset as a last resort?

Double check the cable going into the router is nice and tight.

Re: Help with extreme packet loss

Thanks for your response! I have done a pin hole reset 2 or 3 times over the last few weeks... normally makes a difference for a few hours but the problem returns within a day.
