My hub loss is at around 0.1 so I'm not sure that's really an issue for me personally. I've been searching around for answers and even the 177 IP is apparently supposed to block incoming requests which explains the high packet loss I guess?
I'm stumped tbh. The strangest thing is that my friend who lives a street away was having a problem very similar to this about four days ago. He put it down to a faulty router and just whipped out his replacement one, he's been fine ever since. It would be quite the coincidence that my router would have a fault so closely after his.
I'm going to see if I have an old replacement I can use, might just be my router having a fault. As for alternative routers, I'm not sure, I'd probably use Google to look for recommendations. I hear TP-LINK is pretty decent. I'm not a fan of D-LINK routers due to bad experiences with them in the past (though...I was with TalkTalk).
[Edit] However I should clarify that a different router should not be necessary. If you've had the halo less than a year you could probably contact BT for a replacement. Good news is I found my old router so I'm going to test that in a few hours once the household is asleep. Should narrow down the list of suspects.
No, still having random pauses. Changed all wiring. Ran with no devices for hours. Even rang a ping test from pc to hub for a day and had only 1 packet loss lol. So it's got to be from the osd(fibre wall box) onwards
I'll try a full factory default when I get some time. Nursing a sick dog at mo.
