RekujaNZ:

 

I've also noticed micro disconnections through various games and even while browsing.

 

Steam will drop connection randomly for 5-6 seconds, friend list goes offline and back up.

 

YouTube will stream perfectly fine sometimes, but the video will stop downloading and buffer for 5-6 seconds before it picks up again and downloads the entire video at full speed.

 

Have also disconnected from World of Warcraft and have seen the micro disconnect cause a freeze lag in PUBG before it comes back to normal after 5-6 seconds.

 

Wellington region, modem doesn't disconnect according to the VDSL page in the modem settings, uptime still solid.

 

 

Steam dropping for 5-6 seconds is normal, normally relates to their elastic servers scaling.

 

 

 

Videos buffering and disconnections like this does sound like peaks of SES (large errors) causing dropoffs is data flow.

 

Could be purely dropping the PPP session though?

 

This would require monitoring and checking into by team.

I'm seeing a bit of jitter there to your router - how are you connected to the router?

 

 

 

Past that, noticeable jumping upstream, which i would suspect to be upstream congestion in bursts.. on a 55/22 connection i'd normally not expect to see this, but none the less.

 

DM me your line/account and i'll start tests about 5pm so that we can capture your evenings data by 11pm to skim over as that seems to be your pain period.

 

 

 

no promises about being onto anything here, but a few tell-tail signs popping up

Ive been chatting with Hio77 and attempted things he has suggested and still having issues )=

 

We thought maybe there was some AC leakage into the modem, but switching multiboards/direct to the power socket has not seemed to make any change im still getting frequent drops in games and im stumped as where to go next :/

This has actually been a sizable improvement, Moving from an average of 100K errors  per second to just shy of 1K errors.

 

Purely being on the upstream band, this is where we can't consider it to be a fault (chorus will say NFF on sight) however does open to a few other options now that things have dropped down into much more respectable numbers!
