Hi All

 

I'm currently experiencing fibre speed issues. these issues only arrised in the last month

 

At the moment doing a linetest or even speedtest to a server in New Zealand my speeds are 102Mbps download and 24Mbps upload which is fantastic as my plan is 100/20

 

 

But as soon as I check against servers overseas my speed drops to as little at .73Mbps but upload being fine

 

 

 

 

I have done a full throughput test for Slingshot and got an email back saying there is no issue, but calling them back they said they couldn't find a fault. I've reset the router. flushed DNS. had slingshot fix the dns in the router as it wasn't going anywhere.

 

there definitely seems like there is a fault as i am unable to download my antivirus program or any other program. i can't update my Ps4 

 

Every time i try and download a program from an international source they connection just times out

 

I am wanting to upgrade to Windows 10 but can't until i get the international speeds as my antivirus program isn't from NZ 

 

 

 

On a separate note when doing a connection on my ps3 and ps4 i get a message at the bottom of the page stating the router doesn't support ip fragmentation. I've been unable to find any decent information about this and am wondering if anyone can shed some light on fixing this

Defiantly yucky!

 

my guess is there is something going on with the international routing
can you post up a tracert to the site you are trying to download from?

Those two international test are to out of the way cities what do you get if you try an L.A/W D.C. or Canberra/Sydney server 

 

 

 

Also Trace routes to the servers you're trying to download from would also be good

He should be still getting more than those speeds. Here is mine:

 

 

 

OP - Do a Speedtest to this server: http://webnx.speedtest.net - it is one of the better testing servers:

I'm not even with Slingshot and I'm getting rubbish speeds to those places. frown

 

 

Seriously, though, we could probably trade small towns or cities where your ISP will have better routing than mine, and vice versa. You're almost always going to get worse speeds from smaller places with smaller providers than you are from somewhere with better, faster, connectivity. Even when that somewhere is farther away.
