my graph all red / show 100% packetloss


[link to this post]
 
Definate newbie at this level, but over BT Ultra Fast service being so unreliable. Yes my graph all red / show 100% packetloss so I've run the trace route tool, BT is showing upmin there so I take it IP Adress OK, and router configured for pings ?!

Not sure if BT times are acceptable, in West End of Edinburgh, so if all as should be please irect me to appropriate post.

Thanks

STU

BT Consumer routers do not respond to pings - so graph will always be red at least for IPv4

The graph you set up is using IPv4 but the traceroute used IPv6 so its possible there are responses if you use IPv6

https://www.thinkbroadband.com/tools/what-is-my-ip should display your IPv6 address that you can trying using for a BQM

The IP address checker returns the address of the enquiring device on IPv6 Andrew, not the router's. Basically dynamic, and not there when the device is off.

It took me a while to figure that out when I first joined AAISP. Finding the IP address of the router was a bit difficult until I read up how AA allocate them, as it wasn't even the same /32.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up.

Because one of the good things of IPv6 is to get rid of NAT and use real firewalling to protect devices, it leads to changes in expectations such as this.

Agreed, I had to use the first half which is given by BT and then the routers MAC along with changes here and there to get the second half.

But due to all the hassle of it all I now just use the IPv4 address of the router add it into my own DDNS and use that address.
