Re: Internet crashes/XB6 modem reset/Gaming

Could you please tell us the following:

 

1) specific games you are playing

2) approximate time when the "crashes" occur

3) error message(s) displayed when a crash occurs

4) do you have port forwarding  active on the xb6 ?

5) do you have QOS (Quality Of Service ) enable on the xb6 ?

 

Thanks

Kingloz, thanks for posting about your drops while gaming. Have you tried editing your DNS settings to Google's?

Re: Internet crashes/XB6 modem reset/Gaming

O/k FWIW, there is one thing that caught my eye here. From your error log entries, it appears that you have a "Walled Garden" configuration file loaded into the modem;

 

Screenshot.pngThat is the "captive portal" (a DNS re-direct) that first appears on an un-activated modem. It isn't supposed to allow general web access. The name of the file should be that of your speed tier / rate of service. It *may*, or may not cause some type of DNS issues. Just saying. An employee should confirm that the correct config / boot file is being pushed to the modem.

Great eye, EG. I'll take a look at the bootfile, in our private message thread, Kingloz.

Re: Internet crashes/XB6 modem reset/Gaming

It may or may not be anything Ken. I've seen this here before and despite it, the modem performs normally. YMMV.

Re: Internet crashes/XB6 modem reset/Gaming

True... well I do see some T4 timeouts in the logs they posted so there is definitely some kind of communication issue with the CMTS.

Re: Internet crashes/XB6 modem reset/Gaming

@ComcastKen yes I have attempted to change the dns to googles and oddly it still continued to drop , also I did notice some ICMP floods , a few actually but even with those causing ddos I have heard it may actually not be one , at the end of the day I’m very patient and I’m pretty sure there is some kind of fix to this as everyone else in my area and neighborhood game without things dropping , my friend is a c3 tech but can’t help much he has told the supervisor to send out maintenance for the line but eh who knows

Kingloz, got it. Not sure if this was your comtech3 friend, but a few jobs just opened at the node in your area. There is a lot of leakage there so we are addressing the issue now. I'll update you in private message.
