Internet connection unstable when using Zoom

I'm starting a new thread here as I don't see any answers to the previous thread. Of course, like everyone else I'm at home working now and using Zoom a lot. Most of the time I have no issues at all but sometimes I get the "internet connection unstable" message. The connection looks strong - 5 bars. What is the problem and how do I fix it?

Re: Internet connection unstable when using Zoom

What do the modem's signal stats look like ? Try getting them here http://192.168.100.1 or here http://10.0.0.1

Please post the *Downstream Power Level*, the *Upstream Power Level*, and the *SNR* (Signal to Noise Ratio) numbers.

What is the exact make and model number of the modem ?

Is this a WiFi connection ?

Re: Internet connection unstable when using Zoom

My bet is, their network can't handle the load right now.  At least your internet works, mine completely goes down and the XB6 gateway/router resets itself for 6-8 minutes every day.   The "bars" you mentioned is probably your wifi signal, which isn't the same as internet connectivity or latency.   I've been running a continuous ping to Google's DNS servers 8.8.8.8 and having it write to a log file for the past several days and I see timeouts and destination unreachable.  I can share the powershell script if people want to try running the ping to check stability.

 


This is what it looks like when the issue is happening:
