      40-80% Packet Loss at ip-89-200-132-122.ov.easynet.net

      Is anyone else find their connection dropping and also when running tracerts they get 40-80% packet loss on ip-89-200-132-122.ov.easynet.net.

      Ive been getting this for months and have contacted Sky Tier 3 a few time. Although they have improved the layer 1 connection and made highly stable, I am still experiencing high latency at Level 3 (ip routing).

      Help me out guys as Sky have said that 40% packetloss is acceptable.

      Any help would be great. Cheers

      Just because traceroute shows a high level of packet loss at a particular router, it doesn't indicate that there's necessarily a problem. Basic investigation of a packet loss issue involves first detecting whether there is packet loss between you and the intended end-point, and then if there is, you can use traceroute to determine at what point the failure is likely to be occurring.

      Just running traceroute and detecting packet loss at some point on the way but not beyond that point is almost always caused by a heavily-loaded router chosing not to reply to ICMP requests directed at itself because it has, in effect, more important things to do.

      On the other hand, if you see 40% packet loss at a particular router, and then 40% or more packet loss at hops beyond that point, then you can be pretty sure that there is some kind of an issue with that router, although even then, it may still be routing TCP and UDP traffic acceptably.

      its normal, its designed to have packet loss there for some reason - nothing to worry about!! as James said, if there is large loss past that point then you'd have issues...

      Yeah totally agree, and your probably right in what you are saying, however it does indicate that the router in question is maxed out and therefore more than likley either causing a delay or holding packets for prcoessing. It simply means that although there may not be a problem as such, the router is not fit for capacity and is running at a very high load.

      i did have the reasoning behind it once but forgotten - i'll see if i can get it again...

      and its not because of hardware not being fit for purpose - its designed to hold up at that point for some reason...
