Re: Internet connection unstable when using Zoom

I'm having the same issue.  I don't notice a spotty connection, except when I'm using zoom - my screen freezes and I receive the message "unstable internet connection."  We replaced our gateway about a week ago.

 

I've included screenshots of the info mentioned above here in my dropbox:

Is anyone able to help???  Thanks in advance!

Re: Internet connection unstable when using Zoom

I am having the same issue. My Xfinity modem/router is plugged in to computer (new MacBook Pro) directly through Ethernet and download speeds are around 800MBps. But on Zoom, the sound drops out and/or image freezes for 8-10 seconds every few minutes. Incredibly frustrating as I am teaching lecture courses online.

Has there been any answer/solution?

No, none 😞

 

The only "fix" I've found is to have zoom call my phone so I'm not using wifi for audio.

Checking Verizon's promotions tonight...time to switch...too much money each month for this horrendous service

Re: Internet connection unstable when using Zoom

I have the same problem. I joined Xfinity a month ago and it was fine for the first two weeks and then I started getting Zoom to freeze every 10 minutes. I even got the same freeze when I connected my laptop directly to the router using ethernet cable.


I am using 300/10. How disappointing it is!!!!! My $80/mionth goes nowhere!!!

 

I would love any ideas/tips to avoid this?
