hey,

just wondering if anyone else has been noticing this aswell, would seem there is a bit of packet loss as soon as any connection gets outside nz.

Ping statistics for 74.125.237.102:
Packets: Sent = 1032, Received = 891, Lost = 141 (13% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 58ms, Maximum = 295ms, Average = 76ms




Ping statistics for 144.135.18.32:
Packets: Sent = 1078, Received = 943, Lost = 135 (12% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 60ms, Maximum = 334ms, Average = 91ms


measuring externally.. 



Host Loss

hs1-14.akl-grafton-contentbdr1.ihug.net 14%
be8-188.ppnzftc02.akl.vf.net.nz.180.109.203.in-addr.arpa 14%
be7-188.ppnzftc02.akl.vf.net.nz.180.109.203.in-addr.arpa 4%
ge6-0-0-100.bras1ftc.akl.vf.net.nz.129.109.203.in-addr.arpa 15%
(TARGET IP ADDRESS) 17%

as most of this is ICMP traffic, i know thats first to get dropped and not a totally reliable way of measuring packet loss, however even with just general browsing/downloading plenty of spiking between max line speed, and dropping down to 10-20kb/s which i assume is due to the packet loss.



noticing about 15-20% packet loss on teamspeak as well..

ping tests are also seeming rather extreme.. 

not really too keen to call vodafone and have one of their reps reboot my computer (as they always do) considering thats something that someone would try anyway before waiting all that time for them to answer the phone anyway.

however, if nobody else is noticing this, then maybe it is just my line.. (noticed a few reconnects the last few days - rather uncommon for our line since getting the new router..)


also, anyone noticed stupidly high pings each night around 2am? last 3-4 nights i have seen my ping spike up to 4K for the space of about 5 mins just after 2am (to the first hop) so not sure if that is also related..

How are you testing, wired or wireless connection?

wired, wouldnt post without testing direct, just silly when wireless can be unreliable.
