I am having constant packet loss on the 3rd knot and possibly 2nd knot, I am using a packet ping program that shows packet loss, in the diagnostic the IP for the second know is non existent for some reason. While in games my game freezes for several seconds up to 1 minute and sometimes end up disconnecting, latency goes up over 1000. Packet loss displayed in the program for 2nd knot which is always the same is 100 and for 3rd knot it fluctuates around 60 90. I have tried reaching out to BT but all efforts so far were in vain, I even changed the hub with a third party router, still no fix. I'm thinking there's something wrong with the server box or I don't know, does anyone have an idea what can cause this packet loss? Thank you.
It is quite normal for 100% packet loss on certain hops on the route to the destination as those routers will be configured not to respond to ICMP (ping) requests. A router may also show packet loss if it is concentrating on its' main job and forwarding packets, ICMP requests are always treated as low priority and may time out at busy periods.
If all the packets arrive at the destination then it's impossible for any packet loss to have happened. Lose a packet, it can't get there.
If the destination is receiving 100% of packets sent, how can there be any packet loss? Your program tells you that some intermediate nodes are ignoring ICMP requests because they have better things to do. If the destination was only receiving some packets then the trace might help identify where they are being lost, but not if the destination is receiving 100%
My friend, you are not helping at all, I have packet loss I use a program that does exactly that and I dont even need the program or anyone to comfirm it, the freezes abd disconects I get is proof enaugh, bow if you don t have a solution for me I sugest you do something else.
You use a program you do not understand how to interpret. I was trying to assist you with that.
As regards your gaming problem I would be more concerned about the latency and where that is occuring.
