Re: BNG :(

Just a suggestion re your BQM link. You've posted the live one, so by late today it will not show anything for last night. It will of course show what happens tonight.
On the BQM page you can also examine previous days, and pick up the link for those, if you want to preserve last night's on here.

Re: BNG :(

I would gateway hop if i were you, i was on that gateway and so were others and had problems with latency and speed drops during peek hours, details in the capacity issue thread, the moment I changed to another gateway i haven't had the problem, it seems PCL-BNG02 is having issues.

Re: BNG :(

Are you wired/wireless? Have you enabled QoS?

Do you need to enable QoS on Plusnet?

Re: BNG :(

Hi folks, I've seen the gateway hops mentioned a few times on these forums but this is something I'm not familiar with doing.....why and how is this done?
Are all PN customers connected to the same gateway which then slows everyone down....how many gateways is there?

Re: BNG :(

@malcky
The gateway you are on is given at http://usertools.plus.net/@gateway/
Gateway hopping is done by logging onto  the router and clicking the "Disconnect " button . Wait 30 seconds and press the "Connect" button.
Check again the gateway using the URL above. It should have changed but that is not guaranteed.
And Plusnet have many gateways (10 as far as I can remember) which they try to load balance customers across.

Re: BNG :(

Thanks for the info there George....I'm not yet connected to fibre, that should happen on Wednesday (fingers crossed) as in internet less right now other than on my phone.
So are you saying that to gateway hop you are actually dropping the Internet connection to try force a gateway change?
10 gateways doesn't sound like very many....anyone know how many sky have as a reference which was who I've left to join PN.

Re: BNG :(

Plusnet have 8 of the newer BNG gateways, and 16 of the older type gateways. The BNGs now handle over half of the total number of Plusnet customers.
