Latency Issue ($$$ for helping) - Page 3

post #21 of 24
If you see packet loss to every hop past a particular hop, the first hop with loss is probably the problem. (All packets to hops past the first one with loss have to pass through the one that is dropping packets.)
If you see packet loss pretty much from start to finish, it’s probably an issue with your cable/DSL modem, or possibly your connection itself.

Isn't it safe to assume he's on a different box than I am and different part of the network? Shouldn't everyone be lagging in the complex if what you said was true?

also comcast is really the only option in my town unfortunately

i looked into alternatives 2 years ago and they all had bad reviews.. is it really something I should look into?
Well, I've seen it in the past where one cable will feed an entire building, or even an entire complex. I'm thinking this is a building specific issue for you, if your friend in the same complex is without issue and is on the same provider.

If anything, this is the very proof you've been seeking to localize this to the setup there. Now just to narrow it down to where in the building is the issue! =)

My suggestion? Ask more people in the building to test when this is happening if pinging each hop doesn't narrow it down (though it really should nail it)

Good luck!

Although smokeping is exactly what I asked for. I'll look into this too..

Thank you both!

Well I'm getting closer and closer to ordering my own modem. You think this won't isolate my connection from what ever is causing the problem? I've done tracerts to the modem and everything is fine. I think I need more ideas on what to tracert besides my public ip, modem, and each hop that showed up between that.

Use the trail then the third option and pinging different ips. it will print out a visual map
