Hey

 

I had some issues back before the node upgrades (and again now since going to FibreX) So i started running some rudimentary testing on my link to see if i could see anything interesting

 

Thought i might scatter graph it to see if anything interesting showed up

Interested, what is your testing procedure here.

Its very rudimentary but it seems to give at least consistent results

 

 

 

The graph there is only the Download testing, effectively what happens is it kicks off about 25 individual downloads to sites both in NZ and overseas.

 

After they start, it gives it about 15seconds to stablise then it takes the average (or peak, i cant remember) speed over the next 15seconds and logs that into a CSV file. It does that every 10 minutes. Anything that registers as a -1 is when it couldn't connect to the servers at all

With the other graph i just quite liked the flatness of it after they did the WHH upgrades :)

 

 

 

This month so far has been absolute balls. If i had the option to go to anything else i would but unfortunately this house ONLY has cable :(

Have you logged a fault? Another user was making a lot of noise in another thread and the issue was just a bad contact / joint

If you log a fault make sure you note down fault ticket number

MANY calls.

 

Had Downer onsite a couple of times, tested the connection from a physical cable connection point of view and its apparently fine.

 

Time before they reterminated something on the road that was old and possibly letting water in or something

Is that the modulation test? handheld scanner thing? If so, the guy on Wednesday, ran it at the entry point, and at the upstairs house entry point. The guy who came before ran the same test before and after he re-terminated at the road.

Pumpedd:

I dont think its my computer specifically, the HG loses the connection so everyone goes down

 

The speeds don't necessarily bother me, its the drop outs. I got use to flutuating speeds prior to the DOCIS 3.1 upgrade

 

In the case of drop outs normally what happens is the HG loses it IP address and goes into a cycle of trying to get an IP address and failing. A lot of the time at that point if i bother ringing it in they apparently cant see the cable modem from there end, even though its showing sync'd and online on my end.
