Destination Unreachable - 1-5% packet loss

Question: Destination Unreachable - 1-5% packet loss

Hi guys I'm new here hope you can help :)
- have seen a similar thread in windows, probably should have been in networking section I apologize.
My internet provider has Wi-fi networks across the city, our tenement house has a receiver.
I am connected to router via cable. With very varied frequency I am getting random packet loss - up to 5% which makes e.g. gaming annoying.
It does so for all websites I tried.

At times there is no packet loss for even 5 minutes, sometimes every 20seconds or so I get "request timed out" followed by "10.6.41.1 destination unreachable"


- Is the issue on providers' site, or between my PC and the router?
-Any solutions to fix this?

Preferred Solution: Destination Unreachable - 1-5% packet loss

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Destination Unreachable - 1-5% packet loss

Just to add the ISP got pretty bad reviews about unstability etc.
- just need to know if this is likely on the provider's side

I have a number of XP and W7 PCs in a domain with internet connection, all working fine.

I've wired my Linux laptop to the network, DHCP, and it can talk to other devices on the network. But I can't get connected to any site outside the network - ping to any external address gives "192.168.1.1 Destination Net Unreachable" 192.168.1.1 is the correct address for the router, and any Windows machine can ping to any address via that same router.

Any ideas please?

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Note: You will need to post complete details of your configuration and your specific issue in this new thread for us to help you.

Thanks for your cooperation.

For problém diagnostics you will need to analyze output from ipconfig /all, from routing tables when you work behind local network and network analyzer for detailed analysis of packet exchane (Wireshark will do the trick)

Answer:Destination Host Unreachable

Lets take it in a few steps. Try pinging your gateway 192.168.1.1 to see if we get errors. If not, then ping your DNS servers (124.106.6.2 & 124.106.4.2). Then try pinging 108.175.7.71. What are your results?

I'm getting this message when I tracert sf.net. No other website is having problems being accessed from my network, only sourceforge. A ping responds with:
Reply from 66.35.250.203: Destination port unreachable.

A tracert responds with 15 successful hops, and then:
16 sourceforge.net [66.35.250.203] reports: Destination protocol unreachable.

I cant figure out where the problem is originating. I created a static route to allow all traffic to this address on my 1710 router. My SDSL modem is able to ping and tracert successfully. Ping and tracert from my Cisco 1710 router gives the unreachable error.
Network setup is:
LAN -------> Cisco 1710 --------> Efficient SDSL 5851

Any help is appreciated.

First step is to trouble shoot to determine the cause.

If you want help from somebody you need to describe your network and computers (with respect to the network).

I have searched everything and tried everything. Have an HP Desktop Pavilion. Purchased a MFC 8950dw Printer. One Desktop in the office Acer M3470 connected without Disks, system works beautifully. We have a Linksys wireless router. On the HP Pavilion nothing works. Continue to get "destination host unreachable". Here are the specks. Any help other than what's already been offered? I removed all firewall trying to make that work.
 

Answer:destination host unreachable

You need to tell us what the problem is, not what error you get. What are you trying to do? What are you pinging? Is the HP Pavillion connected to the router via WiFi or cable? Can it connect to the Internet?
Any other pertinent information would help.

To put it simply, I'm just trying to successfully ping machines attached to a hub for now. Here is the setup:

5 Port ethernet Hub
Computer connected to port 1
Linux machine connected to port 2
Linux machine connected to port 3

Both linux machines have (different) static IP addresses. None of this is connected to any outside network, internet, etc. I don't know what I'm doing wrong with this setup because I can't successfully ping the Linux machines from my computer and I'm not sure what the issue is.
 

Answer:Ping-Destination Host unreachable?

Are the assigned ip address to each machine on the same subnet?

1 - 192.168.1.1 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0
2 - 192.168.1.2 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0
3 - 192.168.1.3 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0

so each computer is on the 192.168.1 network.
In this example each computer would be able to ping each other.

if each computer was configured on different networks like the following:

1 - 192.168.1.1 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0
2 - 192.168.2.1 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0
3 - 192.168.3.1 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0

In this case each computer is on a different network 192.168.1, 192.168.2, and 192.168.3, so in this example the only way for those computers to talk to each other is if a router was in place on each network. Without a router you would get network unreachable or something to that effect.

Linux IPv6 Destination Unreachable problem
Hello,

Please help! I am quite new to network programming and so I tested out a sample client-Server application. The TCP or UDP client is either setup as either IPv6 or IPv4, depending on the server address type input by the user on a command line. The server has 4 sockets, one each for TCP/IPv6, TCP/IPv4, UDP/IPv6, UDP/IPv4. There is no router on this network, and the two platforms are on the same link

The client is able to communicate with the server in following combinations:

1) Client TCP IPv4, Server IPv4
2) Client UDP IPv4, Server IPv4
3) Client TCP IPv6, Server IPv4 using IPv6 mapped IPv4 address
4) Client UDP IPv6, Server IPv4 using IPv6 mapped IPv4 address
5) Client TCP IPv6, Server IPv6 both on same plaforms
6) Client UDP IPv6, Server IPv6 both on same plaforms

However, the following does not work is client and server are on diffent platforms
1) Client TCP IPv6, Server IPv6
2) Client UDP IPv6, Server IPv6

However, the application has a problem connecting. The tracedump6 shows the ICMPv6 message indicating “Destination unreachable”, “Unreachable address”.

The ping6 command from client to server platform works fine. I am at a deadend.

Following are some of the information for debugging. Will appreciate any help I can get in fixing this problem.

I keep having an issue with one specific site and the problem is incredibly odd. Every weekend for the last 3 weeks, starting at about 11am on saturday and going through the weekend until monday, the site in question will be totally unreachable from any PC on my network. I can reach it from my phone on VZW LTE, but not from the WLAN. If I ping the site I get an error "Destination Net Unreachable". If I run a tracert I go about 15-18 hops before getting the same error. If I plug the PC directly into the modem, the website is reachable. That definitely indicates a router-side problem. The thing is, the router's configuration hasn't been touched in months, if not years, and the problem is recent. the router in question is a DIR-655, and there is no QOS, no parental controls, nothing that has been manually set up that would obviously be causing this issue. The setup is as barebones as it gets. Again, it is one specific website (pbnation.com), everything else works 100% fine. Any ideas?

It gave a source IP address
Destination port: N/A
Attack type: ICMP Destination Unreachable

There were four entries of this in 2 minutes, in my firewall log. Any ideas what this is?

Thanks
 

Answer:ICMP Destination Unreachable warning

These are usually just ping entries. Some applications and sites use them just to check on the validity of connections. It's possible someone was scanning ports, but that really depends on the pattern, and more sophisticted scanners use a scattered pattern that is not so easily detected by firewalls.

In any case, it was blocked. In some cases, you may find that you need to allow some ICMP traffic for applications to work correctly.

Given that you are using RIP (an old routing protocol not used in current production environments), and the name of the file you attached is "assignment2", I think it's safe to assume this is a school assignment.

Unfortunately we cannot provide assistance with school assignments here.

Hey Everyone! I'm having some bizarre issues with all of my Lenovo W530/W540's.  I'm not sure when the issue started, the first time it was reported to me was around March, and it has been persistant since the issue was discovered.  The issue is that, quite frequently, our Lenovo W530/W540's will get Destiantion Host Unreachable if I run a continuous ping (ping -t ...) to anything outside our firewall. I have run a ping to things inside our firewall (other computers/servers, etc.) and they will return good ping until the cows come home. However, if I try to ping anything outside our firewall (google.com, google DNS 8.8.8.8, yahoo.com, etc.) about every 30 seconds (every 30-35 returns) it starts returning Destitnation Host Unreachable from our Firewall.  This will last for around 10-25 returns, and then traffic goes back to normal. We are a majority Apple Shop, and when I attempt to ping from any Apple on the network, it get fine returns consistently.  I also tried pinging from the few non-Lenovo Windows Machines we have as well (my personal machine which is self-built Windows rig, a couple of windows test machines, and a Windows 2008 Server we have) and they also have consistently good returns as well. It is ONLY the Lenovo's that have this problem.  To compound things, they have no issue when they are connected to a different network other than the company network.  This ONLY happens when they try to interact with traffi...

Whenever I try to access www.dlink.com (or subdomains), or www.dzone.com, I get a "Connection closed by remote server" error in Opera (similar messages in other browsers).

When I try to ping or tracert either of the hosts, I get a "Destination host unreachable" error.

This has also occurred on other websites, which I cannot remember right now, and occurs with both Optus (my ISP) and OpenDNS as dns servers.

It also seems to be intermittent. Yesterday, I was able to access www.dzone.com without any issues for some time, yet today and the day before, this error was occurring.

Also, possibly unrelated, the website www.tv.com is extremely slow when loading.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what the issue is?

The traceroute and ping work fine from network-tools.com, so it must be something from my end.

The IP's are resolved correctly (when I ping or tracert, the IP shown is correct according to OpenDNS's cache). However, when typing either the hostname or the IP in the address bar, I still get the error.

Thanks for reply.

Edit: Also, a ping from my router is "successful", ie: in firmware, there is an option to ping hosts, and this returns successful. All firewalls are disabled.

Answer:Unable to access certain websites: "destination host unreachable"?

Sounds like you've got a DNS issue. Those are handled by your ISP, so you're pretty much screwed if that's the problem. Here's how to check your DNS connections:

1. Open a command prompt Start -> Run... -> cmd.
If you're using Vista, the command prompt is under the Accessories Menu.

2. At the prompt, type ns lookup, and hit enter. This puts your command prompt into Domain Naming Service lookup mode, meaning you can try to resolve websites' names and ip's from their websites.

3. Type the web address of a known website, such as yahoo.com or google.com, and hit enter. You should get the name and the ip address of the site in the command prompt window.

4. Once you've found one that works every time, this will be your Control site. You know it works, so you use it to check your connection.

5. Now, use the address of one of the sites that's not working. If you do get a reply from the site, then the problem isn't with your ISP. You'll need to check your connection speeds and other network settings to test the problem further. If the websites don't resolve, contact your ISP, and tell them their DNS isn't working properly. You're going to need to get to someone fairly high up the food chain, so be ready to be really patient for that part.

Hey guys, I'm trying to setup an RMI in java, after struggling with it for a long time I noticed that it's probably not my RMI that isn't working, but that there's something wrong in my networking.
When I asked a friend outside of the city to ping me to test his ability to connect to me, he said the result was Destination Host Unreachable. After a lot of googling I got explained that this is likely a physical problem, which is weird because I have perfect internet acces. I've disabled all my firewalls, and googling this problem is nearly impossible because googling "Destination host unreachable" usually gives results of attempts to ping a local machine from another local machine, not getting pinged from outside of your network. Does anyone have any idea what this could possibly be ?
I've tried:
1. Restarting all network devices in my network.
2. Changing IPv4 settings to a static IP.
3. Activating Remote Access service (failed)

Using a 3 week old Win 8 Lenovo laptop at work. Usually connect to internet via DSL 'guest' network at work (i.e. no network security passes etc. required) and via wireless at home. No issues until yesterday at work, when certain websites wouldn't load. Since connectivity issues are not uncommon at work, I didn't think anything of it.

Today, I managed to load 2 websites that I use every day for work, but no others. After 10AM no websites would load at all, not using Google Chrome or IE. Disabled and enabled network connection; no change. Attempted to use 'guest' wireless access; no difference. Network Status reported 100Mbps but when I pinged CNN, all 4 attempts timed out for 100% packet loss.

So I waited till I got home in case the work connection was just having some kind of issue (although I wouldn't know what). Restarted the laptop, and it recognized and connected to my home wireless network with no problem. But still no website will load using either web browser. Packet loss is similarly 100% to any website, but there is no packet loss when I ping the Gateway. I run BitDefender, and disabled it just in case some setting had gone awry, but there is no change.

All other computers at my house are working without issue - 2 towers, 1 private laptop and a second laptop issued by my employer and used daily on their secured network.

Since 95% or my work is web-based this is a serious issue for me. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Websites are loading extremly slow and sometimes go to "page not found". Cox tested the connection from their offices and said I was getting too much packet loss. They said if the problem was inside the house (bad modem, whatever) I'd have to pay $59 for the service guy coming out. I've rebooted the modem and router and made sure the pc's were clean in case some trojan was causing the connection problem. Every speed test I do hangs on the "uploading" part. I'm just trying to get an idea from experts if there's anything I can do to make sure the problem isn't my hardware. Only other thing strange I notice is that both my "receive" and "send" data lights on the modem are almost always solid now. They usually blink more. It's like I have a steady stream of data going in and out where I didn't before. I don't have an extra modem unfortunately to make sure that's not it but would a faulty modem cause packet loss with cox or would it just die all at once?

Hi!
I am very happy to find this forum and hopefully you can help me.
My question is pretty easy (at least I think). So I've been getting packet loss. I found out where it occurs. My question is, is that is this my ISP's fault or could this be caused by like a bad switch in the building? The reason why I ask that is because the IP starts with 192.168 and I'm guessing that could be the part of the LAN in the building? I'm not sure (I'm semi noob at this ). I just want to know if my ISP can fix this easily or if this is something more complex.

Question: VPN packet loss

::EDIT:: Solution: Got rid of the RV042, got a PIX 501 (cost effective, most secure, more options, overall much better for the $$). Setup the crypto maps and routing, no problem. Apparently the RV042 has some serious issues when it comes to VPN's, packet fragmentation issues, therefore serious issues. I highly suggest everyone stay away from this piece of hardware. For another $100 you can have a pretty decent, much more secure, Cisco solution.

So, here's an interesting problem.

I have a Cisco 2811 ISR with the security bundle. I have a site-to-site tunnel established with a Linksys RV042 VPN router. Now, the tunnel is connected, and we can ping back and forth between the two networks, but for some reason there is 50% packet loss.

Under the tunnel diagnostics I'm getting an MTU size error, stating that fragmentation could be causing the packets to drop, but I've tweaked around with the MTU settings, cleared the df-bit, all sorts of crap in order to try to get this thing to work and it's just a no go.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

Hello so if someone else is downloading (torrent) something that im connected through the router through. It will take up bandwidth and If im playing a game then I will lose packets and get d/c right...

This is what someone told me i'm not sure about these stuff can anyone explain this to me please?

Also is is possible that the other person on the router can put a password and stop me from using the internet and making him use it only...
 

Answer:Packet Loss

If someone else is downloading torrents yes it will take up bandwitdh. Most torrent program can set a limit on bandwidth they use. Theres a good option there to learn about. As far as passwording your router and disabling your internet, my question is who pays for the connection, if he pays for all of it, its really not your call, he doesn't have to share. If you do, then let him know he could loose his access if he trys to password it. If both then you should both have equal access. Just because he may be torrenting wont cause you to loose packets and disconnect, but may slow your connection. Mostly just dont be an *** and put a password up that you probably shouldn't be. Talk with your roomate and explain your problems is gonna make your situation better.

Question: Packet Loss Help

I'm running a desktop on wireless right now (yes I know wireless=bad for desktops but it's my only option atm) and I'm losing packets like crazy while playing games. So far I've changed the channel I'm on, installed a program called Vista Anti-lag which is supposed to help, and adjusted the antenna position on my card. However I'm still frequently losing packets while playing TF2. My wireless card is the Gigabyte GN-WP01GS PCI WLAN (Turbo) card, and I'm about 30ft away from my router, and 2 or 3 walls.

I can't help but think it's simply the wireless card which is somewhat weak, because when I run my laptop in the same spot I rarely lose packets like I do while playing on the desktop. So are there any other tweaks I could possibly make? Or maybe any suggestions on a higher quality wireless card?

Thank you
 

Answer:Packet Loss Help

Yep, your laptop is far better designed for snagging wireless than your desktop...namely because the antenna is around the screen instead of sitting next to 20lb's of metal and electronics.

Some desktop wireless cards have extension cords of some kind...or you could just setup internet sharing and use your laptop to share its connection via the network jack.

Hello, I have done packet loss tests and it seems I get alot of it.

Here is a screenshot from PingPlotter to show what I mean. http://gyazo.com/4dfd8656e80701bd66547f7c214926c1

I get this insane amount of packet loss across every server and find it extremely annoying when gaming. Do you suggest any ways which help me to fix this problem?

Answer:Packet Loss

You would probably want to run tracert against each individual test site and then compare the results, hopefully you will see that the bottlenecks appear at the same place and that would be where you would want to concentrate your efforts.
Also go over to DSLReports and run a speed test, then follow the site's recommendations

Question: Packet Loss

I ran pingtest.net on both my desktop PC and laptop and I'm getting over 50% packet loss; although there are no symptoms of packet loss. The webpages load just fine. I sometimes get disconnected from online games. I called my ISP about it and they checked all the lines and modem and said there were no problems. Could my network card be dying out on me or something?
 

Answer:Packet Loss

Hello ecko

In relation to your problem, can you describe your network layout, i.e. how many computers are connected, how many routers, anf firewalls etc.

Question: Packet Loss Causes

I have extremely fast dsl connection and after it's on for a while i get alot of packet loss. Wehn i ping yahoo i can get a 25% loss and somemtimes it takes a while for a page to download because of the packet loss. What are some ways i can fix this?
 

Answer:Packet Loss Causes

you can't. Two major factors are
1) DSL is just digital over the phone lines which are subject to all kinds of
'noise'. Sometimes a dial-up can't even sustain 9.6kb. I have experienced even hearing
the cross-talk from a neighbor when calling a friend.

2) the very nature of TCP/IP is 'contention'; the drivers write w/o permission and
then find out after the fact that the packets had collisions and need to be resent.
This is a major reason that TCP/IP only performs to ~70% efficiency.

The interesting issue is 'where do the packets get lost'?
If you are using TRACERT (Unix=traceroute), then it's the losses that are used to find the existence
of the intermediate nodes - - kind of interesting.
In addition, assuming a simple 3 nodes end-to-end (a->b->c), once packets
are received at b, any losses to c are recovered(resent) from b, not a(greatefully).

Ping will report losses from A --> .... -->Z and there's not way to improve the
efficiency end-to-end other that to (somehow) get a totally different routing.

Packet loss is a way of life.

Hello, im hoping someone can shed some light on this, ive already tried a few things but to no avail.

Last weekend i registered some jitter on our internet connection, i thought it was just the ISP messing around so i waited 2 days but, the problem was still there so i called them, they reset the router completely but it didnt change anything. They also said everything looked fine on their end.

Now we have two stationary computers running on the connection, i told my brother to check the packet loss on his end, and he had none, i had him check multiple times that same day and i thought i would just format my pc incase of any viruses that might've caused some interference. I still have the same Packet loss after a complete format of my pc.

We, my brother and I, both have our internet cables go into a switch which then enters the router, i tried to switch my cable into another port on the "switch" and it didnt change a thing either.

Now, what do i do? if i have packet loss and my brother dosent, one would expect the fault to lie with me, but since i format my pc it would have to be hardware outside the pc? would it be my internet cable that just randomly "broke" ?

PS. Ive had the same ISP for a good while now and havent had any issues what so ever, the packet loss on my end just happend at random and decided to stay.

Any help would be greatly appriciated, this is annoying me to no end.

Websites are loading extremly slow and sometimes go to "page not found". Cox tested the connection from their offices and said I was getting too much packet loss. They said if the problem was inside the house (bad modem, whatever) I'd have to pay $59 for the service guy coming out. I've rebooted the modem and router and made sure the pc's were clean in case some trojan was causing the connection problem. Every speed test I do hangs on the "uploading" part. I'm just trying to get an idea from experts if there's anything I can do to make sure the problem isn't my hardware. Only other thing strange I notice is that both my "receive" and "send" data lights on the modem are almost always solid now. They usually blink more. It's like I have a steady stream of data going in and out where I didn't before. I don't have an extra modem unfortunately to make sure that's not it but would a faulty modem cause packet loss with cox or would it just die all at once?
 

Answer:Packet loss - is it me or cox?

Connect directly to the modem with one computer and run the following tests.
Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

I have packet loss, and randomly connection loss (but otherwise i have very good pings!) under windows 7 with two different computer with realtek 8111B and 8111E onboard chips. But there is no packet loss under windows xp with the same computers.

I tried old, new, and motherboard manufacturer's drivers, new windows 7 system without any antivirus software, disabled windows defender, in safe mode, but still the same. I have no router, just a modem directly plug into the pc.

Whats the problem? Windows 7 or realtek drivers/chips?

Can you help me?

Thx!

Answer:Packet loss only in win 7, but not in xp

One thing to check is the firmware of the Modem.

There were a fair few changes to the network stack and networking in general, between the time of XP and Win7.

A few routers had problems with the change, and although It's not a common issue with modems' it may be worthwhile investigating if there are any firmware updates available.

If the modem is supplied by the ISP, they may even be willing to supply a replacement, especially if you have had the modem for some time

Question: 88% packet loss

For a long time now i have noticed a big difference between the advertised speed of my internet (10mbps) and the actual speed of 1mbps, i know it is advertised as 'Up To 10mbps' but i don't think it should be that low. So i looked around and found pingtest.net who gave me this report:
(says 71% but it is consistently 88%)

and speedtest.net who gave me this report:

This confused me however because this gives me almost 10mbps, even though all downloads i try give 1mbps, this may be because it is not taking into account packet loss?

Here is some more information about my issue:
Make and models:
ISP: Telewest Broadband (Virgin Media)
Modem: CISCO EPC2100R2
Router 1: BELKIN F5D7230-4
Router 2: BELKIN F5D5131-5
Connection: All Wired
OS: Windows XP home SP2
Browser: Firefox
NOTE: my pc is connected through both router 1 and 2

Description of symptoms:
I have tried connecting my computer directly to the modem which i recall made it better but didn't fix it. We have also had our modem replaced recently with little or no result as to fixing this problem. So i am pretty sure its a fault with my ISP or PC.

Question: Packet Loss

Hi, i previously had a windows xp pc with a wirelless g usb network adapter. I was getting a smooth connection. However, when i bought a new pc with windows vista premium, I started experiencing much packet loss. I updated the adapter drivers for vista off linksys' website, but i am still experiencing loss. This has been affecting my online games such as Counter-strike source and Call of Duty 4 where i get kicked from online games due to the PB error "No packet Flow" after 30 seconds.
Is there anything i can do and what may be the source of the problem?
Thanks in advance
 

Answer:Packet Loss

first find the game server name or IP address
then get a command prompt (run.>cmd) enter
ping servername (or ip address)
and you will get some timings. if there's no timeout or server not found message, then enter
pathping servername (or ip address)

it will take 200-300 seconds to run the test -- be patient

now you will see exactly WHERE in the network packets are being lost

you can COPY the report and paste into your reply

I've had some issues with video streaming being poor, not always, but quite often. Browser loading can also sometimes be less than stella.

After doing a series of checks on pingtest.net I discovered there was some amount of packet loss, ranging from 1% - 4% dependng on where I pinged, and perhaps when. I really have no idea where to start with identifying the cause.

Question: Packet Loss

Hey guys. My office recently had a new ISP install a 7 down and 2 up connection (switching from a T1.5 line). After the install was complete I ran a few test. A "ping google.com -t" command indicated packet loss every minute or two. Had the installation guy standing their to watch.He had their "head" network guy look into it. They came to the conclusion it was on their end and were looking into it.

That was Friday. Today, Monday, I am not seeing any packet loss and a random latency jiggle of about 100ms sporadically (happened three times over the last 10 minutes).

Can you guys think of any other tests to run to verify that the issue has been resolved? I am needing to make sure this connection is rock solid. We are going to be converting all of our lines over to VOIP and can't afford any dropped calls.
 

Answer:Packet Loss

What kind of connection do you have? DSL, Cable, Fiber. T3? Depending on what you have your jitter may be normal.

Before I went to LA (wednesday) my computer was working fine. When I got back last night, it was not.

The internet is running really slow. At first I thought this might be our connection, but my brothers computer is running just fine and we are on the same network. I checked the status of my LAN connection and noticed that even if I disable it and then enable it, or restart my whole computer, I am only getting about half as many packets as I should be.

currently its sent about 48,900 and I've received 18,900. What, in such a short amount of time, could've caused this problem? what should I look into doing in order to fix it? Thanks for any input.
 

Answer:need help with packet loss

You dont necessarily recieve a reply for every packet you send out - especially if its UDP or ICMP packets. If what you're seeing is different from your baseline then you might have a problem.

I'd do a packet loss test either with pathping from the command prompt or using a tool like whats available from broadbandreports.com. Also check your cabling and check your computer for viruses.

Question: Packet Loss

Heya! ME again about the Packet Loss. Havent posted here in a while, but I need to get rid of Packet loss! It's driving me crazy! Anyway, I took a line quality test online:

http://www.dslreports.com/quality/nil/1114340

Those are the results I got. I took it like a few minutes ago but I've had the problem for about 2 weeks now. A cable tech guy came to my house and rewired some stuff outside. He said my connection was fixed when it wasn't. So I called up cox HSI (my service provider) and they pinged my connection while I waited on the phone. They said I had 19% packet loss and they needed to send ANOTHER tech guy out here. No problem with that, just that I had to wait till' THURSDAY for him to come out. This is crazy. So is there anyway to fix this on my own possibly? Is the 'Packet Loss' on my side or the ISP's side? Could someone give me some steps on what to do? I don't run a firewall or anything, I cleaned up spyware, re-installed my whole entire windows XP, and a lot of other stuff. I could use help Thanks.

(P.S: I don't use a router of any kind. Meh Cable modem is directly connected to the back of my ethernet adapter inside my computer. I tried changing the slots of the ethernet adapter, still have problem )

Answer:Packet Loss

If you know someone with a computer that can lug it over to your house, you could try that. It would eliminate any possibility of it being your system setup. Even a laptop would do the trick, should be easy to configure for the cable modem for a test.

Question: HUGE packet loss

Hi,

I need help . I am getting anywhere from 12%-48% packet loss and need help learning how to fix it. I use 64-bit vista, a surfboard cable modem no router all hardlines to the computer. I have been looking around and have tried troubleshooting it before but finally i figured id ask for specific help. If anyone needs numbers/specs/ anything to attempt to help me respond and i will put them up as soon as i can. Ask whatever questions that could lead to theories as to why. I already have replaced my old modem (ordered this new surfboard one), i replaced wires, and I defragged my HD. So I'm relatively sure my hardware isnt a problem. It COULD be flaky ISP hardware in the area, but i think it may just be me having some setting screwed up. This problem only started when i moved several blocks away from my university dorm to a new apartment though. I dont know if universities have different protocols that allowed me to have some settings different and it would work their but not my new place.

I have normal jitters and normal latency nothing high.

Also i have contacted my ISP they say everything is fine, techs have been here, they say everythings fine, and the normal bull from the ISP i use Mediacom in Iowa City, IA.

I of course can post screen caps of pingtest.net, speakeasy.net, dslreports as well

(i found it by typing netstat -s) Its not on the wired computers just wireless. Also i found it was very strange
that while in the same room, my signal bars jump from 2 to the max which is 5. And the rate going anywhere from 54 to 5.5 within a period of 5 seconds sitting still. What is going on?! when i go to the far end of the house, i still have a 'very low' signal as i did before i sent it in, but whereas it used to be a rate of 36 or 48 is now 1, or 2. I tried flashing my router with HyperWRT and cranked the power all the way up to 100% which did absolutely nothing, so i flashed it back. Can anyone help me? I have to click links 6+ times to get them to go and the reload button is getting hit more than 'start'!

So I've been using a wireless network, which was working fine for a while and all of the sudden today I tried to play an online game on my xbox and it kept freezing and lagging horribly. But my signal indicator appears to be strong. I found a site called ping test and now I see that I have an 88% packet loss!

I have no idea what would cause this but I suspect roadrunner, as the service appears to have declined lately, but I thought I would check to see if there is a solution. I tried switching the channel on my router, but that hasn't helped. The only thing I can think of to do next is to test the connection directly from the cable modem, and make sure it is not the router.

The reason I suspect the cable is it has gone completely out a few weeks ago, took them all day to fix it, and the week before that there were connection issues. Also the TV was pixelated frequently, like it wasn't receiving good bandwidth. Time Warner used to be good, but I think the service is declining.

Is a way to test the router?

Hi, It's my first time posting on this forum, so I apologize if this is in the wrong section.

Recently (about a week ago), I started experiencing a high percentage of packet loss while using the internet.

It started out with what I thought was just "regular lag" or ping spikes while I was gaming. However, after checking with command prompt and pinging the game servers, I found out that I was having an obscene amount of packet loss (about 80%-90%), but other than that, when packets were in fact returned, my ping would be perfectly normal (usually 88 ms). Usually when I'm experiencing lag while gaming and check the ping, the packet loss is minimal, and my ping would hover around the 500 ms - 1000 ms+ range. So this was the first sign that something was amiss.

The day after this happened, I started experiencing severe latency issues when just surfing the internet normally. Webpages would frequently take minutes to load or even fail to load all together, and all the while, I never disconnected from the internet once. I did the same thing as I did with the game servers and pinged pages like google.com, and I found the same issue - severe packet loss (100% packet loss for MINUTES at a time) interspersed with brief periods (~30 seconds max) of perfect ping.

The problems did not seem to stop getting worse there. Up to this point, these packet loss issues only occurred while I was using the internet during the night. In the morning, packet loss would be minim... Read more

So I recently received my WRT54G v6 from eBay and immediately flashed it with DDWRT v24-sp1 micro. There were a few hiccups along the way but everything's been "running" for about a week now. My Internet (Comcast, ugh) is miserably bad though. While speedtest.net may give me hopeful numbers it definitely does not translate into real world performance and I'm finding this connection hugely lacking in reliability and enjoyability.

I've been trying to figure out whether or not my router, modem, or connection is the culprit though or if its some combination of any of those. So, obviously, first step I ran modem straight to my computer and ran a couple of ping tests to Google, Yahoo, etc... and found 0% packet loss with an average ping around 23ms. Next, I hooked up my router and computers through that and ran a couple of pings and found approximately the same results. Today, I come home and ping test again and get between 5% and 25% packet loss with an average latency of 224ms. What gives?

I didn't have time to fool with it and I just checked it again about two minutes ago to find 24ms latency, 0% packet loss. It seems to range up and down as I've seen this happen other days as well. I would love to attribute it to a shitty connection but that does mean a lot more work on my end dealing with Comcast... but I wouldn't have to replace any hardware.

Answer:DDWRT = Packet Loss?

when you're seeing packet loss like that to a website, do a constant ping to the router.

this should help eliminate where the issue is.

if you're seeing packet loss to (eg) yahoo.com, but not to your router, your internet connection is the most likely culprit.

if you're seeing packet loss to the router, then I would start disconnecting other computers first, to see if a particular computer is hogging the bandwidth.

if after disconnecting all but the 1 computer and you're still getting packet loss, start testing with the other computers, and only leave the 1 computer connected that you're testing.

the "testing" you've done has done nothing to determine where the issue is. Because you have not completely eliminated any other computer from being the culprit, or even the router. Since you stated that everything was working, you hooked up the router and everything was still working.

Also make sure your wireless is either disabled or secured.

on another note... the computer you're using to test with the router in place... wired or wireless connection?

Is anyone aware of a known issue with Vista 64-bit edition and broadband internet access? I've been to several homes now where the customer has bought a brand new pc with Vista 64-bit edition fresh out of the box and connected to their internet connection they have massive packet loss.

The PC's are typically Dell's, but most of the customers have had other PC's running XP or Vista 32-bit edition and all is fine. I don't run 64-bit so I'm unable to test at my own home.
 

Answer:Vista 64-bit Packet Loss

There have been many complaints with Vista-64 and driver issues. One issue is that the 64 bit version REQUIRES signed drivers, and since it's pretty rare, many manufacturers have not gotten around to creating them.

I play a computer game (Minecraft) and play on a server over the internet. The server is hosted by another player but my friends play on the server and they don't experience any lag. Between the hours (Give or take 1 hour) 6PM to 11PM I am on the internet and do not experience any dropouts but the game becomes so laggy that i am unable to do anything. I have called your customer support multiple times and the first time i was told that it was fixed but if the problem occured again to call my phone provider, the problem disappeared for the rest of the night but sure enough the next night it returned. So i called Telstra and they ran a test on the line and during that test i experienced a perfect connection all night. The next day they called and said the line was fine and there was no problems on it.

I have been having problems with my wireless for a few months now without finding a solution. I am not amazing with the technical aspects of computers but I am ok. The main problem from this is random disconnects or lag spikes. I play online poker and sometimes the loss only lasts a few seconds and after the "network error working on a solution.."(not a vista message) box pops up everything catches up and i can continue playing, other times the loss lasts long enough to completely disconnect me from the internet, although I can almost always get back on after disabling and re-enabling the connection, it often takes a few minutes and is very frustrating.

Hello,

For a month now I've been getting about 10-20% packet loss on my home network. When this started I hooked up my cable modem directly in to the outside line, and then my computer directly in to the modem. I got the same result. I also tested it with another modem. Charter told me that I need a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, so I got that, same results.

Since then, all cabling and splitters in the house have been replaced. The cable from the outside box to the inside has been replaced along with something else in that outside box. Charter tech (3rd one since this started) came today and replaced the actual line running from the pole to my house, he came inside, ran a ping test... same result.

Does anyone have ANY idea what could be the problem? The tech has no idea, and says he will submit this to his supervisor who will run tests from his office and then call me with what he finds. But that will be on Tuesday.

For a week now, I'm getting this sudden packet loss on my local network. There's 2 numbers I ping to check, one is 192.168.100.1 and the other is 192.168.100.2. I'm getting 2-3% packet loss, sometimes even more, on the first one for a week. So I call my ISP, they think the cable's faulty, so they change the whole thing. But it still doesn't solve anything.

What can be causing this problem, it's really annoying when trying to surf or download etc, they stop and start the whole way. And this all started all of a sudden, I never had any packet loss issues before.

Please help.
 

Answer:Getting weird packet loss

this is a local network problem, I'm surprised your ISP did that, but whatever. Try pinging 127.0.0.1 and see if you still get the packet loss, if so you've got a problem internal to the computer (127.0.0.1 is the loopback address, it's pinging itself without going through any cables).
Also may I ask how long the ethernet cables are and if they pass the power cable of things that can chew a lot of power? (TV's microwaves etc.).
Ethernet cables have a maximum length of 100m but if they're close to active AC power it can cause interferance in the cable and hence packet loss.

Last thing, its probably better for this to be in Internet & Networking->Networking rather than in Hardware.

As title, I’m experiencing some packet loss at the moment which is absolutely killing my ability to browse the internet. This problem started a couple of days ago, no new software has been either installed or un-installed.

My (UK) ISP is Virginmedia, and my connection is 20Mbit/s down and 786Kbit/s up.

My PC is hardwired to my Belkin F5D8230 router, which is then connected to my cable modem. I also have OpenDNS configured within my router.

I have tried the following:

1) Removing OpenDNS and allowing the ISP to specify the DNS servers.
2) Connecting the PC directly to the cable modem.
3) Re-setting both the modem & router, by removing power and through the browser.
4) Restored my PC to a clean install image created a few weeks ago.

None of the above worked.

I finally gave in and called my ISP. They told me that the packet loss is caused by my software firewall. I told them I wasn’t running one (my packet loss ocurrs whether Vista’s firewall is on or off). They absolutely insisted my non-existent firewall was the cause.

My ISP confirmed that my IP is valid, and that there don’t appear to be any network issues in my area.

Pinging bbc.co.uk or google.com returns mixed results. The return times are horrendous, on a good day I’ll get 22ms or thereabout, at the moment I’m getting about 200ms with 75% or 100% loss.

Does anyone have any ideas?
 

Answer:Packet Loss – ISP Won’t Help Me!

replace your network cable, try a different nic.

i assume you have tryed simply deleating the connection and remakeing it.

you have a rounter, so i assume you have a seconed pc, dose it have the same issues?

i know you took the router out of the loop, but that dose not mean you swaped cables, eather of the 2 (pc to router or router to modem) could be bad.. it would be odd, but both could be. if the cable you swaped to was the bad one, your going to endup with the same issue. have you tryed a different jack on the router? or setting a static ip in the router for your pc?

i remember once uppon a time working a on a pc for a buissness, every thing check out as good.. wires , modem, router.. nic.. but i would get sporadic packet loss on the nic... come to find out a cockroach layed an egg on the top of the jack inside the pc and was shorting the connectors.. not saying you have a roach problem.. just dont rule anything out.. lol

Question: High Packet Loss

I've been having very high packet loss (20-50%) for the past 3 days. I didn't install any new hardware or software prior to these problems. A tech from Comcast is supposed to show up tomorrow to test my lines. But, I'd like to educate myself first.

I first started noticing the loss when webpages would literally take 1-2 minutes to load, even though I have cable service. Pings result in high losses, even occasional (yet rare) loss to my Default Gateway. Tracert shows packet loss in almost every hop, even the first hop (again, rare). I even have trouble checking email.

The Line Test on dslreports.com shows that almost all of my loss is at my system. Bandwith tests are showing on average (when they actually work) 700/70, but my advertised speeds are 1500/250.

However, my cable modem is showing an adequate signal. I've replaced my NIC card to rule that out. I've run commands "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" to fix any tcp/ip corruption, and command "sfc /scannow" to fix any Windows file corruptions. I have also done all the typical checks: cable wires are tight, reset modem, uninstalled firewall & anti virus softwares, removed router and plugged modem directly into computer, placed the modem more than 2 feet from any monitors...

Can anyone recommend anything that I haven't already checked?

Thanks!

OS: WinXP
Modem: Motorola SurfBoard SB5100

Oh and in the Surfboard you should be able to access the internal page to check what it's getting. IP for the Modem page should be 192.168.1.100 if I remember correctly.

Yesterday I took my base unit of my main computer to a friends in order to do some work online for him and plugged into his network via a D-Liink DWL +120 wireless usb adapter, which I had to install. This gave me a great deal of problems, mainly that the connection was intermitent and I suffered packet loss regularly. Anyway, I returned my computer to my home today and reconnected my router (via LAN) and connected to an online game as i always do. To my horror I find that i am now receiving major packet loss at home to! I know that it must be the computer rather than anything else because my 2nd computer, also connected via the router, reports no packet loss at-all. I am at my witts end, I do not know why this is happening but i am assuming it all has to do with that damn D-Link adapter i used at my friends as I had no troubles before. I have checked my add/remove programs and find that a D-Link adapter entry is sitting there, it will not let me remove it either with or without the software CD, there is no entry on my network connections for the D-Link (it is not connected so I am not suprised at that) Furthermore WinXP refuses point-blank to do a system retore to before i installed it, just says it wasnt possible.

Question: Packet Loss Issues

Hi all,

I'm getting a large amount of packet loss at a particular hop in my connection to a site I use daily.

I've actually been having this trouble for nearly a year, and I've finally decided to see if anyone can even suggest a way for me to improve this.

When this first happened I contacted support for the site and they said it was my ISP, so I contacted my ISP who of course told me it wasn't their fault either.

I've had a lot of trouble with accessing my inventory from the "asset servers" for this site, and support tells me it's a packet loss issue. So I ran WinMTR to get an idea of what is happening where. I located the main trouble at ae-1-100.ebr1.Denver1.Level3.net ... and told my ISP this. They provided me with an email address for the company owning the 'server' or 'node' (or whatever the heck you call it) which is causing the trouble. Of course my email to this company went completely unanswered.

Is there any sort of BBB for such things, or some other way of dealing with this issue? I have waited a year for things to change but they never have, and 50% or more packet loss is simply pathetic. I do business in a virtual world online and it kinda irks me to not have access to my assets simply because of one bad hop in the chain.

Well anyway, thanks in advance. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
 

Answer:Packet Loss Issues

the level 3 server might be your ISP's bottleneck to the net. in other words, it might be who they get their internet from. I might try them again asking this question to be sure. If it truly is not there access point to the net, and just some random hop between you and the SL servers, there probably is not much that can be done unfortunately.

I was hoping that you could help me with a little problem that I am having. I just got done building my new machine and in games I was noticing some lag from time to time so I went to the command line and did a ping www.yahoo.com -t and let it run for a little bit and this is what I saw:

Answer:Packet loss question. I need some help...

Your not running blue tooth or anything crazy like that are you? Just standard good old wireless G?

ping your router see if the loss is there, when I have troubles with wireless connections either I get the connection or I don't. I've never got a wireless connection that just decides to drop a packet once in a while. If pinging your router reveals no problems.

Broadbandreports.com look up your ISP and see what the reviews are. You can also run an automated tool which will transfer a bunch of packets back and forth between you and the server and measure the loss. If that tool is telling you you've got significant loss you could call up your ISP and ask them to call someone out to see the loss for yourself, hopefully he'll either splice off some dead-unused line or boost the gain or do something to clean the signal up.

Remember for average websurfing on a tcp/ip connection the client reports to the server the last packet it got, and the server continues sending/resending accordingly, so average web surfing shouldn't have any trouble. But over UDP your going to have some trouble... 7% loss will make any game commit harry carry.

Hi, my mcafee subscription ran out a few days ago so i downloaded avast anti-virus and comodo firewall as my security center, but since i have tried to play a game (battlefield 2) and i keep getting kicked for high ping, which is silly because i have a 20Mb connection and never hav a problem with lag or high ping.

So anyway i used a site to check what my ping was and it says....

"PING 86.15.129.228 (86.15.129.228): 56 data bytes

--- 86.15.129.228 ping statistics ---
20 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss"

I have never had any problems like this before, though i have disabled both my anti-virus and firewall and i still have the same problems, the thing i find weird is a can use my internet fine just cant play any mp games.

Any help is greatly appreciated, if you need anymore info jus ask.

Answer:100% Packet Loss *Sigh*

My first thought is that the Comodo firewall is blocking other connections from coming in, so maybe you need to add Battlefield 2 in the exceptions.
You would probably get better help if you were to go to the networking or gaming support sections.

Hello

I have broadband highspeed internet connection and I connect to the internet via a modem and a router...so esentially it is wireless. I use a laptop with Windows XP. I mostly play games online...mainly Q3 arena, but face lag issues. (Pls dont jump on me saying I shld have posted this in the Games section). I have 2 questions -
1. Can using a wireless connection cause lag in the game? (I dont think it should)

2. Is there any website/tool that can help me determine if there is any packetloss happening or not??

The ppl playing with me say that I shld check if packetloss is happening. I dont know how I can check that...I went to www.dslreports.com and under their tools, I tried their packetloss test, but I waited and waited....it din't show any results. Any other sites/tools where I can do it for free?

I appreciate your help
Thanks

Hey!

My situation is as followed; until recently my internet was fine, I'd have no problems, but for a few weeks now I've been hovering around 200+ ping and about 60% to 90% packet loss rendering pretty much anything I do impossible. Sometimes it's a spike that lasts for a few minutes, but it can go as long as the whole day.

The problem is that I'm in University and I share a room with another person, he is not affected by the lag. He claims to have lag, but when I look over at his screen, he sits nicely at around 80ms in his game. I've caught him once when he was out of the room torrenting a movie, but that would affect his own internet too right? Also, I notice that whenever he is asleep or not home with the computer off, my lag stops and I can continue doing everything as normal.

So what I'm asking is, is it something on my own computer thats causing my lag, or is my roommate (un)intentionally doing something to me?

Thanks!

PS: This is what pingtest is telling me.

Answer:Packet Loss Constantly Around 60%-90%

if he's sucking up the majority of the bandwidth downloading torrents then you will have issues with ping and packet loss , my guess is his torrenting is taking priority and you are getting what is left over..

Hi I have a Windows XP SP3 with Road Runner Turbo and I have been experiencing major packet loss. I get massives pings on Ventrilo of 30000ms and I made some recent test and I have reported that my upload speed was at 42kbps. the strange thing is that my download speed is fine. at 16Mbps. I have been experiencing this problem for 5 weeks now. we called the ISP. they came in 5 times, and never found out what the problem was so it might be my machine. I have a Hijack this for the current system info so you can pinpoint anything that maybe suspicious. My Modem is a Arris and I use a router which is a linksys WRT54G. its not connected right now so its directly connected to the modem right now. Here is the HijackThis Log
