Re: Internet stops working at 9pm

Got a phone call today telling me my Internet was fixed! I guess fixed means 50-100% packet loss with 2000+ms ping and 40-60mg of jitter!

Then I got to spend an hour and a half on tech support with rogers trying to get them to escalate this issue. What a grand Friday night!

Just like clockwork 9pm every night!

Re: Internet stops working at 9pm

Call tech support again and force them to escalate it, no matter how long you have to wait on hold. After my last call and being on hold for over an hour my Internet speeds seem to have gone back to normal (knock on wood)

Re: Internet stops working at 9pm

Internet connection issues every night at around 7pm to 9pm

 

It seems almost every night my internet slows to nearly nothing.  It happends between 7pm and 9pm which happends to be when I need it most.

 

We have had our modem changed, and our signal is fine.  It effects both Wired and WiFi.

 

I normally can't reach internet speeds tests sites, or when I can it ends up failing because of the issue.

 

The following are traces I have run while the issue is occuring, and after.

 

During issue:

 

 

Tracing route to google.ca [209.148.199.25]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
 
  1     4 ms     3 ms     3 ms  192.168.0.1
  2    22 ms    13 ms    11 ms  99.241.112.1
  3  2067 ms  2123 ms  2643 ms  67.231.222.193
  4     *     2500 ms  2206 ms  209.148.230.177
  5     *     2176 ms  2212 ms  24.156.157.82
  6     *        *     1767 ms  209.148.199.25

Trace complete.

 

After issue:

 

Tracing route to google.ca [209.148.199.25]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
 
  1    11 ms     5 ms    29 ms  192.168.0.1
  2    13 ms    22 ms    15 ms  99.241.112.1
  3    17 ms    17 ms    14 ms  67.231.222.193
  4    21 ms    22 ms    15 ms  209.148.230.177
  5    32 ms    47 ms    45 ms  24.156.157.82
  6    25 ms    49 ms    20 ms  209.148.199.25
 
Trace complete.

Is there anything I can do?  It looks to be an issue between 99.241.112.1 and 67.231.222.193 which are both owned by rogers.

Re: Internet stops working at 9pm

And the signal is fine, even durring the BAD time?


My guess.. is that one of the local nodes.. the 3rd hop on your traceroute there, is FAILING under its most heavy load (which would likely be in that timeframe)

I beleive this is something that would have to be escalted to maintenance?

Maybe @CommunityHelps can get involved.

I managed to connect to the google speed test and it returned the following results.

 

Latency: 94 ms

Server: Toronto

0.60 Mbps download

3.42 Mbps upload

 

I should have 100 download, 10 upload.

Re: Internet stops working at 9pm

Hello, So when I was having the same type of issue it turned out to be a overloaded node. It took multiple calls over a month long period to get it escalated far enough that it was actually rectified. Hope this helps somewhat.

Re: Internet stops working at 9pm

I wouldnt completely rule out a node issue..


But those signal levels, while still technically 'in spec', are pretty LOW, and jumping all over the place.

It may be part of the issue.

Re: Internet stops working at 9pm

Contacted support last night via online chat.  Referenced this forum post.  They opened a ticket, and said they would have a tech monitor the nodes.

 

Tech called the next morning, asked a few more questions.  They resubmitted the ticket with the additional info.

 

We will see how it goes.  Thanks everyone.
