ADSL24 - Packet Loss somewhere in the London Tube Exchanges?


[link to this post]
 
I know there's been some problems at Telehouse North over the past week but am I the only ADSL24 customer still suffering from varying degrees of packet loss:

Router's been powered off for 20+ mins several times. I have a ticket open with ADSL24.

Am I alone in my suffering?!

That looks more like the server you are tracing to is not responding to ping/trace rather than actual packet loss

What happens if you tracert www.thinkbroadband.com

I'm on ADSL24 (fibre), in Oxfordshire, if this helps.

Here is my route to www.thinkbroadband.com as suggested.


Tracing route to www.thinkbroadband.com [80.249.99.130]

Re: ADSL24 - Packet Loss somewhere in the London Tube Exchan


[re: Lucifa42] [link to this post]
 
Thanks everyone - all sorted now.

It seemed to be an issue with a small IP block.

During the fix the back-room guys managed to 'lose' my fixed IP address and put me into a DHCP pool, but I am now back on a static IP (...a different one..mutter mutter..DNS changes...) and things are routing properly.

Have to say the ADSL24 support guys were doing their best and this seemed to be an upstream issue/cock-up.

Re: ADSL24 - NO Packet Loss somewhere in the London Tube


[re: Lucifa42] [link to this post]
 
So there is no longer any "packet loss" on the Underground?

Those twits in USA are far away.
