Lots of dropped packets, ping okay


[link to this post]
 
BQM reporting lots of dropped backed since yesterday but a ping to bbc.co.uk of 200 show no packet loss. Not sure what it could be.

Pings inbound to you are sometimes being dropped or ignored. It looks like the last hop i.e. possibly the router itself doing it.

Does not look like usual packet loss as would expect jitter and average latency to vary too

Are you using a FRITZ!Box ?
If so have you got another different branded router to try.

The FRITZ!Box sometimes detects the BQM as a possible ICMP Flood Attack and then blocks it, this is a good feature.

I had a similar issue a while back when I used an AVM FRITZ!Box 4040 where after 10 days of use it would look like your BQM until I rebooted it and it was fine for another 10 days.

I then moved over to another 3rd party router and the issue as gone.

Also when you say a ping to bbc.co.uk of 200, was that you did 200 pings or you got a ping of 200 to the bbc.co.uk ?
Not too sure how far you are from London, but a 200 ping to the BBC site is a bit high.

Yes it is friztbox,
I sent 200 ping to bbc.co.uk and it completed fine. I have restarted the router via the console, although better still reporting packet loss.

Just one of the quirks of the fritzbox
