  1. Nah I don't have anything special running, just using the modem router from the box with only changes to channel/bandwidth etc. I did try 2 other modem routers just to eliminate any issues with it, and sure enough they all had the same packet loss.
  2. Yeah thats fair, just odd cause the microwave is reasonably far away. And on the ethernet note it may be to do with the fact the cable was 5E as BlackManINC suggested. will have to test and see. On the last point, I don't think the ethernet cable was particularly close to power cables, but who knows what might be interfering at this point (or if it is even interference).
  3. Wow, I had no idea that cat 5E may have interference from metal etc as well. I guess the smart thing to do now is get a cat 6 cable to test the connection, and if its solved then ill go the access point route. thanks for the suggestion.
  4. I mean the only thing between the modem router and my computer is 1 wall, a rack of coat hangers (idk if metal may have some effect), and some metal sliding doors. This seems odd to me though as even when the laptop is next to the router or plugged via ethernet it still has big issues. If interference may occur from anywhere in the house I do have a heating system which can connect to internet, and a smart TV but that's about all that comes to mind. A microwave on the other side of the house? Dunno. Also the ethernet cable I tried was a Cat 5e that came with the modem router.
  5. Hi, I have had severe packet loss occurring within my wi-fi network, which has made me unable to connect to game servers properly, and caused significant lagging. After performing traceroutes and using pingplotter, it became apparent that the packet loss was primarily from the first step (computer to router/modem) (see image). *Note, I had a modem router 2 in 1. I replaced the modem router (myrepublic wifi hub+) with a TP-link VR600V, which seemed to eliminate packet loss and latency at steps after the first, but still has significant packet loss at the first step (99%+). I have tried altering modem router settings such as channel, bandwidth and connecting to both 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands. I also have the latest drivers and firmware on the network card (have also tried 2 cards) and modem router. When I connect my laptop to the modem router via ethernet cable, significant packet loss >75% still occurs. I don't believe I should have interference problems, as I am in a quiet area with only 2 other nearby networks on different channels. I also only have 1 wall between my desktop and the modem router, and even when my laptop is next to the router it has packet loss of 80%+. My only thoughts left is maybe that the house/road connection is faulty, but I thought this would show on a hop other than the first in a traceroute. Some clarity on this would be great. I truly don't know what else I could possibly replace/update/configure. Any help is appreciated as I am lost as to what to do next. Thanks, Michael
  6. Update: - I have tried connecting my laptop to the modem router via ethernet, and for whatever reason it now still has significant packet loss >75%. Does anyone know if it is possible for packet loss at the first hop of a traceroute to occur because of a bad house/road connection? I really don't think there is any hardware/software to replace at this point.
  7. 1. From the Wifi Analyzer it seems to me as though there should be next to no interference but the screenshots are attached in case I interpreted wrong. 2. The desktop is approximately 5 metres away with one wall in between. 3. There are no other routers, but there is one connection point in the kitchen (I will try plugging it in there tonight - EDIT: it still had massive packet loss). If you meant boosters etc as access points then no there are none. I think there is 2 laptops, 1 TV, 1 desktop and 1 tablet connected to the network, however I am the only one who uses the internet regularly (interference is usually highest around 6pm-10pm if my parents are watching netflix). 4. My network flow diagram is pretty simple, just: ISP --> Modem router (TP-link VR600v AC1600) --> Desktop (custom) (network card is TP-link Archer T6E AC1300). my PC specs are: - Windows 10 home - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7600 CPU @ 3.50GHz 3.50GHz - 16 GB RAM - Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 It should also be noted that sometimes I am not able to even connect to the 5 GHz internet band. I talked about this with TP-Link and changing channel to 44 solved this temporarily, but It still took me 2 or 3 tries to connect to the 5 GHz band for WiFi Analyzer today. I assume this has something to do with the packet loss. Thanks, Michael
  8. Yeah i think that might be the next step, im almost hoping the router is defective so i have something to work with. Dunno what to do if it is operative. I appreciate your time and suggestions anyway
  9. Literally nothing im aware of, to be honest its been a bit on an ongoing thing and I only bothered to commit to fixing it yesterday. Its also strange because I only have the router next door, and I still get the same results when holding my laptop next to the router. very weird. I am even wondering at this point if I just ended up with 2 dodgey network cards/routers. Dont really want to buy another to test this though...
  10. Yeah it was present across 3 different devices, and I tried changing bandwidths and channels to no avail. I am also in a relatively quiet area so there should be no major interferences.
  11. Yeah I replaced my old one at the same time, so hopefully no problem there.
  12. Hi, I have had severe packet loss occurring within my wi-fi network, which has made me unable to connect to game servers properly, and caused significant lagging.

I have tried altering router settings such as channel, bandwidth and connecting to both 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands. I also have the latest drivers and firmware on the network card and modem router. The packet loss is also reduced to around 1% when connecting via ethernet cable to my laptop, but this is not an option for my desktop. This makes me believe there is a problem with the wi-fi capabilities of the router, however it seems strange this occurred between two routers (one brand new and expensive). Any help is appreciated as I am lost as to what to do next. Thanks, Michael
