BQM Ping Monitor for AAISP


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys,

Just wondering if any of you have a recent BQM ping monitor image I could see for AAISP?

Looking to transfer across soon and am interested in how stable the ping is.

Cheers

Scott

Pings are very stable but must be honest here, there are "brief" outages a lot more with AAISP than what I had with Zen. Like I say though, pings and routing is top class though - apart from the odd occasions when it breaks.

You haven't got your router set to respond to ICMP pings Andrew smile.

(Many of us fail to do that on setup of a BQM).

It's replying now... I blame recent swapping over of routers/firewalls at home!

Yep.

Are you using a Billion router?

No, it's a ZyxEL VMG1312 in bridge mode (VDSL) and a FireBrick doing the PPPoE

Ah smile. It's just those regular (2.5hr?) latency spikes are typical of some Billion routers that need an update.

Stick a link to your live BQM in your sig please smile. (Much more use than a three-week-old speed test tongue).

Returned my 8800NL as even the beta firmware did not cure the 2.5 hour latency spikes as promised. Also, Billion suspect the hardware itself to be faulty, that was the deciding factor for me. Much happier with the TP-Link TD-W9980.

My guess is its QoS related somehow, although I guess you guys have QoS disabled, probably internal QoS on the router.

I use a 8800nl but in bridge mode, which isnt affected, however if I enable ipv6 AND QoS on the ac68 it feeds I get weird icmp spikes at intervals also, it only happens if QoS and ipv6 are enabled together in my case,

There is currently a QoS bug with the 8800NL... I'll have a go at switching if on and off again (which is apparently the fix!) to see if that helps, thanks.

There is talk on the web of switching wireless off being the cure, which makes it half a router.

Nope.

A router is a router is a router.

It may or may not be combined with a switch or hub in the same casing, and a WAP may or may not be added into the same casing as those. Additionally, when a modem is also included thus turning it into a modem/router many people use the simple term "router".

I don't think you can have half a router, except when setting up a spoof eBay advert. Two-thirds of one however is a rout. wink

The casing of any such combination is of course five-sixths of the whole piece of equipment.

Usual load of Jibberish to me Bob - i would take more water with it. Not my fault if switching off wireless cures the regular latency spikes, but I stand by the opinion that doing so leaves you with half what you paid for usable.

True, but nevertheless it is not "half a router" but rather a router without a WAP.

True, but nevertheless, it was bought as a fully functioning 'Router' - deliberate I suspect to keep the anoraks here splitting hairs smile

I have a router in my cupboard - a Netgear DG834 (note the absence of a letter after the numbers) - it also has a modem built in. Wireless doesn't work on it for the simple reason that it doesn't have it - it's still a absolutely fully functioning router.
