Random packet loss
For the past couple of week, I've been having a hard time playing online game, watching streams or anything else involving realtime connections. At first, I thought my computer had a faulty component but after running maintenance on it I have gotten no sigh of malfunction from it. Next, I checked to see if my wiring connection to the modem was at fault. Nothing, lastly I check the modem as my computer connect directly to it through ethernet. After doing a whole power cycle and contacting CS for a health check, I got no sign of a problem. And yet I'm still getting packet lost that is interrupting my online play.
Tired of then issue I went to look for a solution or even a way too shows that packet loss is even happening. After contacting the owners of the game server (Btw I talked to them and they are not having any problems on their end.) They told me to use WinMTR and record what is happing to my connection when it is attempting to connect to the game servers.
Here are the results:
As you can see I believe I'm losing packets based on this recording that im have 7% loss after it leaves the first hop and having a struggle at the last hop. I have no idea how this is happening or why since I've tried everything outside of calling a tech to come and look at my set up. If the first hop is from my Modem then would that mean the problem lays between hop one and two?
At any case, I would like some help in figging out this mystory.
