What happended today?


[link to this post]
 
Hi Guys,
Just out of curiosity,
came home tonight and my mum was winging at me because the broadband was slow, so re-booted router and all fine,
checked my BQM and up until i re-booted the rooter there was allot of packet loss,
BQM, BT Home
What do you guys think could have caused this ?
The connection has not been used much to cause this packet loss so what could it be?

Cheers.

At a guess on a previous reconnection it got an usually high speed, and over time the noise margin got worse to the point of causing packet loss, your reboot has allowed it to reconnect at a better combination of speeds/margins.

Eventually the router would probably have rebooted to better parameters on its own in time

I had checked the stats before i re-booted though and all where fine,
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 8128 kbps 448 kbps
Line Attenuation 24.0 db 15.0 db
Noise Margin 12.1 db 25.0 db

These have not changed for weeks.

Thats that theory gone, maybe router was just in need of a reboot to sort its memory out

Will look at other BQM's for BT to see if others have this

Cheers,
It was just out of curiosity,
Beacause that has never never happended before...
Could it be to do with infinity being installed in my exchange area?
although my cousins broadband was not affected on same exchange.

No sign of a generic BQM problem for BT Total customers

Any thunderstorms around your way today? There was one in London today.

Years back, a storm took several hours to build up during the course of the afternoon (this was when I was back in Scotland, on a near 60dB attenuation line). I watched the SNR and packet loss increase as the storm began to build up, until when it actually passed, the ADSL was knocked out of operation completely for several minutes. After that, things returned to normal.

Now on <aaisp.net> (21CN+IPv6)
Previous ISPs: Virgin Media (50Mb/Cable), Be* Un Limited, ZeN
Is Linux routing your internet connection?
Need to make BIND geo-aware?

No thunderstorms :~) must have been the routers fault :/

Getting a new router when infinity comes which is soon!,
so should all be ok after the upgrade!
Too infinity and beyond ADSL! smile


Cheers Guy's
