dropping packets, at home…Locked
Here is the situation. LOL, I am dropping packets… And its starting to get on my last nerve.
What clued me in was: I game a decent amount, and I have been getting kicked from Punkbuster for “dropping packets”. For trouble shooting purposes, I started a ping -t http://www.google.com and in a second window ping -t http://www.yahoo.com. When pings start to time out, I would run a tracert, to yahoo and another one to google. Everytime the hops would time out it was between RoadRunners routers/devices. Also I have reset my modum and router, more than a couple times, checked for firmware for my router (there isn’t) Reflashed it with the same version…
I called the helpdesk, and they say that they are not seeing any issue with my service and that I have a 98% success rate… So, they are basically saying that its my equipment that is causing the issue. Is there anything I am missing? I am 99.9% positive that it is not my equipment that is causing the issue… Also I have experienced it with different PC’s that have different OS’s (Win7&Ubuntu 9.04)
When everything is running correctly I can get 22MB down and 1 MB up (speedtest.net), but when its not running right I get 2-5 MB down and 600Kbps up…
Is there anyway to prove that its their stuff thats causing me to drop packets? Or is there anything else I could try?
