@Adva Firmware .26T2 fixes this issues but will not be released to the public b/c as Dave noted, it is an interim test build. Firmware .27 is going to be the network-wide release but Dave is expecting the firmware in the next-2 weeks, but this firmware will be distributed to the beta testers at first..
So maybe in 3-4 weeks .27 will be released to the general public.
last few days I am getting crazy lag spikes. to the point where anything I watch online buffers for a moment or 2. What would cause that? Anyone else seeing this?
Last night, I noticed my upload speed dropped dramatically on some speed tests which was odd. I've honestly have had a solid 50 Mbps upload on both wired & wireless ever since I've got Gigabit which has been over a month now. I was on a mission to find the root cause but saved it for the morning & played about 2 hours of GTA Online for PS4. Did not have any issues.
So today I began looking for the cause of the drop in upload. As of right now the best I have seen is 30Mbps upload & I was even getting as low 10-20 Mbps upload. Did some reboots, checked the levels, the usual stuff etc. I am actually getting better results on DSL reports speedtest for bufferbloat with the lower upload speed(got an A for the first time, pasted below)....As you can also see on the Rogers speed check the upload graph is not as "smooth" as it was before...Chatted with Rogers online to see if they have any issues reports for my area & he mentioned that possibly there is. He mentioned it appears something is causing noise or congestion in my area & put in a ticket.
Went to test League of Legends right after & first thing I noticed by ping was sitting at 52MS...every game I have played in the past ping was sitting at 38MS. After the match I used Logs of Lag to check results. As you can see below the packet loss has increased & the ping is higher. It was still not enough to notice degradation in game performance as everything ran smooth. Figured I'd share as interesting to analyze these results compared to my previous ones.
Will dig into little further into this & report back.
I have the 70u package. And we are seeing massive lag spikes. Like in the 2500 range. Causes twitch streams and youtube videos to buffer. Also affects my work connection. No idea how to fix this. Any ideas people
Can you provide some info on your setup ? What firmware is your modem running & how are the signal levels ? Also how long have you been experience the issue (just started or it's been like that for a while etc) ? How many devices are you running at home ? Also any troubleshooting steps you may have already taken.
This will be helpful in diagnosing the issue. I don't have 70u but I am using the CODA modem with Gigabit service & the family streams alot...they haven't been having buffering issues.
So I signed up for 1000/50 in June 2016. Download speeds have been all over the place, but my uploads were always fairly consistent at around 50.
Lo and behold, as of yesterday I can't get over 30 UP. Was my profile changed on the system? WTH!
Also, I have noticed that speeds for Gigabit are infuenced by how current a computer and processor I am using. I just set up an i5 third gen computer and ran the speed test without antivirus installed. The rogers speedtest resulted in 945/50 prior to yesterdays upload change. As well the download graph was flat with no spikes or dropouts.
DSL reports yelded similar results.
@RogersDaveare you looking at the impact of antivirus software on speeds in your testing?
@Windwalker To me it looks like it is the case of upload congestion. I've noticed a growing trend that many users are not able to hit 30Mbps/50mbps upload which only means that the upload usage is has increased dramatically within the past 6 months. You can call into Rogers and ask them to check if your node is affected by severe upload congestion/or possible noise on the upload side which can be limiting your speeds.
Hopefully D3.1 upload is coming in the next few months to help reduce the upload congestion.
@4kgigabitguy It probably could just be noise on the upload spectrum which could be reducing your speeds. This noise can become much more apparent in peak hours as a similar case happened to be a month ago.
I do notice that your packet loss and bufferbloat is still quite low although you are affected by an uplink issue.
What continues to puzzle me is that your upload bufferbloat is consistently low, whereas mine is consistently high. There's currently some work being done in the background to determine the cause of this issue, but I'm not sure how we both yield different upload bufferbloat results despite being on the same modem.
