Snap

"You are currently connected to gateway ptw-bng01. This is located in Telehouse West"

That packet loss spike at noon today is odd. I don't know whether that means they were carrying out some work.

@chenks76

My format of the meter display doesn't look like that and how did you get it into the forum, please?

Re: High packet loss and other DNS issues

It has the up and down green like yours but at the righthand side has a vertical green and red block.

I had that spike (old network, static IP, ptn-ag03)  just before noon. So did plenty of others if you look at the community TBB page https://community.plus.net/t5/custom/page/page-id/_PingGraphs

Re: High packet loss and other DNS issues

I only recently set up TBB (dynamic IP old network) and have noticed that some loss spikes can't be down to plusnet.

 

I too got one before 12 today, but on thinkbroadband.com forums there are people on different ISPs who have a link in their sig. Looking at one from aaisp I see they got a spike at exactly the same time. So I can't blame Plusnet for that. Maybe it's TBB it's self, or BTW, or something routing between TBB and BTW

Re: High packet loss and other DNS issues

What is your downstream bandwidth though?

 

I think people with high rates should see less yellow streaming, but then "streaming" will mean different things depending on the quality/bitrate/number of streams.

Re: High packet loss and other DNS issues
