Recently purchased an Billion 8800nl r1 on ebay and put in bridge mode and updated it to the stable DH65 firmware. Thing is I'm getting quite a bit of packet loss whenever my PC is on & connected and NOT actively using the internet.
Billion 8800NL R1 bridge ---> Asus RT-AC68U routing/wlan
2 ethernet cables run from Billion modem to Asus router:
- one from Billion LAN1 to Asus WAN port
- one from Billion LAN2 to Asus LAN2 port
PC is directly connected to LAN 1 port on Asus. No other ethernet ports in use.
BQM illustrating a specific example of packet loss:
Steps taken: Tried DH65 firmware and newest firmware also. Factory reset performed after both upgrades. Eliminated Asus router as cause by using HG612 in lieu of Billion modem - no packet loss at all detected by BQM. Did interface grouping to separate LAN ports etc. Disabled firmware on Billion modem and Asus router. Enabled WAN ping on both.
Absolutely stumped as to what could be causing the issue. For information the Billion is a great modem with higher actual/attainable sync than the HG612 and I am on the verge of selling it on because of this issue.
Would be great if anyone could help me troubleshoot this.
