Re: Wireless issues on 5GHz with SH3

20 seconds to 10 seconds would make a difference but 20ms to 10 ms would be hard to see.

Was Eclipse Home Option 1, VM 2Mb & O2 Standard
Now Utility Warehouse (up to 16mbps) via Talk Talk

In reply to a post by Bryer:
Do you ever have anything nice or constructive to say in this Virgin Media forum? My ping has dropped from the mid 20s to the low 10s now! Hence I notice a difference.


I have things nice to say when circumstances merit it. I say plenty that's constructive.

Now onto the topic in hand: it's not a fix at all. It changes how the modem handles BQM traffic to make BQMs look nicer, it doesn't change how it handles the actual gaming traffic. The periodic jump about every 2 seconds in actual traffic persists.

Still if you think you can notice a difference in gaming because 'all BQM sites' you use look better and pings reported have dropped 1/100th of a second that's all good.

Got my router replaced today, the old one would struggle to even give me good speeds next to it...

Constantly getting full speeds over Wi-Fi at the moment when in the same room or close to the router.

Fingers crossed the stalling issue doesn't come back either

The first question that springs to mind from the screeny, what's happening on the TOR browser to require anonymity? laugh

Glad it's fixed.

The fact its used to be anonymous answers your question, also the fact you know the logo for TOR means you know a bit about it wink lol

Cybersecurity professional here... Where TOR is used on a home-based ISP it may raise a flag, so rumor has it (unconfirmed), it can have the opposite effect on anonymity if it attracts further scrutiny/attention to you overall.

I work on the basis all communications are intercepted.
