Peak issues


[link to this post]
 
Anyone else having slow downs from 6pm onwards till about 10pm.. pages take awhile to load and sometimes not at all. Not the line dropping as its stable.

I'm on a business line so the priorities are different but surely for web & youtube/iplayer it should be much the same.

Also i thought that with PPPOA the MTU issues had been solved , i've had to reduce my MTU to 1458 to get less issues. 1500 just slows things down and increases the page time outs.

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 6539 kbps 714 kbps
Line Attenuation 49.5 db 26.8 db
Noise Margin 3.3 db 5.4 db

Tried changing my DNS servers (BT/Google/OpenDNS.) no difference. All devices are doing it (wired/wifi)

Download speedachieved during the test was - 5.61 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 2 Mbps-7.15 Mbps.
IP Profile for your line is - 5.77 Mbps

Upload speed achieved during the test was - 0.61Mbps
Additional Information:
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 0.83 Mbps

No difference at the test socket, besides i use a filtered faceplate.

Apparently i'm on Interleaving but my net gear via debug says it's on fast path. I'm on a 3db profile as i wanted to see if the faster speeds would stop youtube buffering/page loading times to speed up. It hasn't changed it for the better or worse and is not dropping (90+hrs uptime before i reset for test socket)

Your priority is at the highest level

I would suggest calling the business support team after 8 tomorrow - they will sort that stuff out for you - use them that's what you are paying for.

Run the thinkbroadband speed test. If it's congestion the graph will likely show very variable speed during the test.

Is your exchange listed here: http://community.plus.net/exchange-information/ ?

MTU = 1500 is best for BTw WBC connections over PPPoA.
In reply to a post by Binary_Digit:

Netgear telnet debug reports only on Up interleaving status in words. Take a look at the 'D:' line giving the interleaving depths. 1 = Fast Path, >1 = Interleaved.

NM = 3dB is giving you much faster sync. With NM = 6dB you would be getting about 1 Meg less.

Nope it's Leith.

Can't get on the Speedtest says there is a serve issue right now.

I'm back to trying 1500.

It's not suggesting any packet loss.
