  1. Need Help Interpreting Test Results

    League of Legends has a very handy network log analyzer, in that I have random spikes in packet loss but nothing insanely high (4-5%). Enough to be noticeable in-game however. It also shows me that my jitter is at best 8ms and at worst 14ms. One of the latest tests I did, with just the modem, showed a small period where the jitter and packet loss were both at zero for maybe 1 minute. Could this be a puma 6 chipset issue and I just swapped a bad modem for bad?
  2. Need Help Interpreting Test Results

    Just tested with all the conditions, the network logs for League look the same and the test results are the same, the only difference is that the resolver issue from the Netalyzr test goes away without the router, understandably. I am starting to think that this modem swap might be a hoax because I swapped a shitty modem for a puma 6 modem which is notorious for latency, jitter, and packet loss.
  3. Need Help Interpreting Test Results

    I can see the resource usage on my router and everything is as expected really. Nothing that looks like it's bogging down the network just some wireless usage, less than 4 gigs on the day and the downloads I did today. None the less i'll run some virus cleaners through everyone's devices and try a period where no devices are connected to make sure. I'll double check the cable thing, only time I can think this might happen is to my room where my main pc is located. I also don't use wireless to game. Could this be a problem with my router just not efficiently handling packets or something along the sort? Would new firmware like openwrt solve a problem like that?
  4. I've been experiencing some weird jitter and packet loss on my network for quite some time now. Last month it got bad to the point where it was frustrating to play most online games. I thought it was the modem, replaced it with the netgear cm700 and the problem got better but wasn't fixed. Now I'm looking funny at my asus rt-ac66u because I think I have extensively tested everything else. ALL cables have been checked using a network cable tester, modem replaced, Comcast has great results with other customers in my area, AND I just installed a fresh copy of Windows 10. I am running out of options and really don't want to spend more money. I think maybe this Berkeley Netalyzr test might help me solve the problem, but I am quite inexperienced with networking so it makes little sense to me. ANY help would be appreciated, if you need any more information / results from the test I would be glad to post them, I just posted the ones that were flagged for reasons that weren't predicted to be a security measure.

  5. I was looking for an upgrade over my regular onboard audio from my asus vi hero and couldn't decide on what dac and amp to use. The headphones I will be using in the foreseeable future are the Beyerdynamics dt990 250 ohm, Sennheiser HD 6xx, and various $100 earbuds. I was thinking about the Schiit stack or the AudioQuest DragonFly Red. The portability on the red seems attractive so I am wondering if there is much of a difference in sound quality between the two. If you have any other suggestions let me know for the $200-250 price range. Not necessarily looking for portable but it is always a plus for in bed listening.
  6. Further Internet Problems

    My neighbor two doors down has Comcast and doesn't have any of these issues or doesn't notice them because he does not game online where the ping spikes and interruptions are most noticeable. Thanks for the clarification that everything on this screen is all good.
  7. Further Internet Problems

    Just to clarify, the modem is mine and I guess buying a new one is an option that I could test. Here is a picture of the Downstream and Upstream parameters: Also what is the acceptable amount of Correctable / Uncorrectables as those are included in the image. I will try to check all connections and wiring between house and pole today. Thanks for the help.
  8. Further Internet Problems

    Honestly I haven't checked splices and it is night so I probably won't get to soon, also no network cable should be running parallel with power cables.
  9. Further Internet Problems

    I have not asked Comcast for a new modem as I don't really have the money right now to rent one out. They set it up around January so the cable and modem should be still up to their standards as no weird weather issues have occurred.
  10. Further Internet Problems

    Yeah sorry that I forgot this stuff, was too busy testing other stuff. My region is the United States, specifically illinois with the ISP of Comcast running cable at advertised speeds of 80/20 but it often exceeds 80 in the download. The make of my modem/router combo is an older motorola sbg6580 running the latest arris software that comcast patched in less than a week ago. There is also another router, an asus rt-N66U however as I said I am not connecting through it. That guy is running outdated software but the problems persist even when it is unplugged and when I use my laptop through the same cable that runs to my room the spikes persists. All devices have been searched by malwarebytes and AVG and the problem persists when I am the only PC at home (I scanned my PC multiple times).
  11. Further Internet Problems

    After replacing all of the cables INSIDE the house, my ping spike issue, now accompanied by occasional drops in connectivity, is still occurring. Here is connectivity and the logs were cleared recently on accident but said something along the lines of: 3-Critical T001.0 SYNC Timing Synchronization failure - Failed to acquire QAM/QPSK symbol timing 3-Critical T002.0 SYNC Timing Synchronization failure - Failed to acquire FEC framing Connection: Downstream- 1 Locked QAM256 17 615000000 Hz 2.7 dBmV 35.5 dB 14928 0 2 Locked QAM256 16 609000000 Hz 2.6 dBmV 35.5 dB 11241 16 3 Locked QAM256 19 627000000 Hz 2.5 dBmV 35.3 dB 32236 0 4 Locked QAM256 20 633000000 Hz 2.4 dBmV 35.1 dB 37135 22 5 Locked QAM256 21 639000000 Hz 3.1 dBmV 35.5 dB 27590 26 6 Locked QAM256 22 645000000 Hz 3.3 dBmV 35.6 dB 20509 0 7 Locked QAM256 23 651000000 Hz 3.1 dBmV 35.4 dB 26285 0 8 Locked QAM256 24 657000000 Hz 2.9 dBmV 35.4 dB 23353 24 Upstream- 1 Locked ATDMA 92 5120 Ksym/sec 15700000 Hz 36.8 dBmV 2 Locked ATDMA 89 5120 Ksym/sec 36400000 Hz 38.2 dBmV 3 Locked ATDMA 90 5120 Ksym/sec 29500000 Hz 37.2 dBmV 4 Locked ATDMA 91 5120 Ksym/sec 22600000 Hz 36.7 dBmV Any help at all would be appreciated and my computer that I am doing tests on is directly plugged into the modem.
  12. The issues occur with all games and is confirmed when my discord signal drops.
  13. Hey everyone, I am experiencing some issues with my network after switching to comcast and while swapping my old modem for a different motorola surfboard sbg6580 modem/router combo. Problems consist of random connection drops while connected directly to the router/modem and bufferbloat while someone else or I take up some of the bandwidth. Before I used a regular modem that went to my asus rt-ac66u which was providing the wifi and went further on to the switch in the basement. While I am pretty sure that there are no problems with cables I will be double checking later today for any problems with the cables and the switch was also a part of the old setup which worked perfectly. Here is a dslreports screen shot and a traceroute to riot servers here in chicago as gaming is the reason this is a bother. Thanks for the help and I am quite inexperienced with networking so any tips and explanations would be helpful. I will also try tests while connected through my asus router and the traceroute looks better than before when i tested through my router.
  14. Feenix Collection Giveaway

    I like the headset and mouse the most because they look very sexy and seem to have some high quality materials in the build. The mousepad and keyboard look great as well!!!!
