TG582n Fibre router - Ethernet switch issues under load


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I have the Plusnet supplied Technicolor TG582n FTTC router. I have a wired PC, laptop and homeplug in the three usable ports and connected to the homeplugs are an Xbox, sky box and other living room devices.

I upgraded to FTTC in September and noticed i'd occasionally drop out of games but I didn't know why. When black ops 2 was released it started to happen more often and once it starts to happen it will keep occurring until I reboot the router. I don't know if the code in that game is particular inefficient (a good chance) but when I'm host and I search for a game the switch often shuts down.

I know the switch is going down because I have a ping going from the wired PC to the router, bbc and plus.net and all three drop. The router logs don't show anything. If I cancel the search the router starts to respond again so its not rebooting itself or anything like that.

I'll paste some pings below but I was wondering if anyone has had these sorts of issues before or has any other advice?

Thanks in advance.

Duncan

To be pedantic, your pings don't prove the switch function is faulty. Running a ping to another device on your LAN would confirm if it's the switch or routing functions that are flaky.

To be less pedantic, certainly looks like there's something wrong!

Hi there,

A member of our products team who is responsible for the hardware we supply would be happy to help you diagnose this.

Would it be OK if we gave you a call on Monday perhaps to go through a few things?
