little bit of background I was on 1 gig service with a hub 4 but I had enough of the disconnects and moved back to the hub 3 and 350mb service yesterday still getting minor packet loss but I have a feeling this hub reports errors better than the hub 4 which did not seem to show anything wrong.
so any way I have been keeping an eye on my Pre RS errors and Post RS errors they seem to build up very fast which doesn't look correct can any one confirm if I should be seeing these type of numbers so fast in like 40 minutes?
currently the router is plugged in to 6DB which was added last time an engineer came out I feel like I have a cable problem now seen as though I had problems with the gig service and I'm seeing all these errors.
System up time
: 0 days 0h:43m:57s
network log doesn't show anything except the odd RCS Partial Service; some of these are when I have rebooted or reset the device.
any ways are these errors normal or do you think this might be where I'm getting my random packet loss from?
Increasing PostRS errors are indicative of a noisy circuit. All you can do is check all connections from the VM outside box to your Hub, that they are all "finger" tight. Apart from that, you will need an engineer to fix. It might also be an idea to get the engineer to move your tap in the cabinet so the attenuator can be removed from your internal cable.

“Are you using a 3rd party hub?” They are NOT 3rd party hubs, they are routers when your VM hub is in modem mode. Hubs in network terms were thick pieces of equipment in 10baseT Ethernet. VM miss used the term for their modem/router/network switch/wireless access point box.
Hub being in modem mode does not matter one iota to Pre & Post RS errors, they are all from the modem component of the VM hub.
