    Ping Plotter Quick Guide

    Fraser has asked me to post a guide for PingPlotter, I will keep it simple like myself, here goes.. Download PingPlotter Here Type a close IP to your region I usually use twitter.com or .co.uk but as i write this both were connecting to the US as I am in the UK I have set the ping plot to bbc.co.uk. Typing bbc.co.uk into the target address bar leaving the interval at 2.5 then pressing enter on your keyboard or the go button. A congested line looks like this. You can see the ping in real time, the ping numbers are listed to the left of the plot. I achieved this by setting my congestion control sliders to 100% each so that the duma was not helping with local congestion thus saturating the line. If you have a ISP issue from say a Intel PUMA 6 based CPU in a modem or ISP congestion an BT line fault (US/World infrastructure alternative) or even a faulty Ethernet cable, RJ11 or faulty Master socket face plate your line may look like this even when you set your sliders lower. This is a line idle with minimal traffic being used that does not use a PUMA 6 based chipset or have any network issues. This is a line downloading a full width saturating the line but using the duma congestion control at 70% each way If you would like to post a bad result to the forum or save a plot to prove to your ISP there is an issue after ruling out your own network then press File and click on save image and this will give you an image of the GUI at that moment for you.

    PS4 SDD broken?

    While the case is open you should also clean off and reapply some thermal paste to the CPU. ☺️

    If it becomes popular Netduma should look into their protocol from game packets so DumaOS can prioritise them over the streams packets. It may introduce frame drops / stutters though.

    Even if they have implemented game input traffic prioritisation from game stream traffic (which I am doubtful) WiFi is half duplex 😆

    It is like the Xbox streaming console that has been announced, they will not be any good for online shooters. local > streaming service > local > host > local Instead of local > host > local I just lol at this quote from the article "In games where split-second reactions are a matter of winning or losing, high latency rates infuriates players. In an attempt to avoid this, Google said its Stadia controller will connect directly to Google's servers via wifi"
  6. If you are playing BF on your PC and watching Netflix on your PC? then having the PC prioritised will cause this.

    Ping Plotter Quick Guide

    My line started to play up, I had packet loss, I changed my VDSL face plate and it is fixed. Filters need changing regularly and so do filtered face plates. RJ11 cables from the faceplate to the modem/router can start to fail also. To save on Sky not having a clue and sending an engineer this is something to think about.

    Changing ISP

    Sky uses MER authentication, the router will come set up with your user name and password already. It is just a case of turning on the sky router connecting the two via Ethernet rebooting the XR 500, putting your XR500 WAN IP into the Sky routers DMZ, then enter your new bandwidth into the congestion control and you are good to go.
  10. Just to add, are you using a two router set up? have you turned off the first routers WiFi? What is the GUI like if you connect directly with a device using Ethernet?
  11. Hi again, I mentioned to you in your thread on ping plotter that it is nothing to worry about, here it is from the horses mouth https://www.pingman.com/kb/article/one-poorly-responding-router-5.html

    Ping plotter need suggestions

    I am from the UK so we do not have the same set up but from what I am reading on this Web Site under 7db is OK. There is a lot of info on here for you to check against your stats.

    Sync;CM-MAC errors : your modem signals may be out of spec causing line drops. Check that your Downstream Power Level, Upstream Power Level & SNR are within spec, check your ISP for info. I answered your second question in my prior post.

    As the increased ping does not follow through to the later hops this is a hop that sometimes does not respond to ICMP Pings. Nothing to worry about, it will not affect gaming.

    Console Bandwidth Settings Survey

    No limit if you are the sole user. Headroom needed to stop local congestion if not, 30% or more.

    Blops 4 Menue Lag

    The blue screen on PS4 is a known fault if you use your pad plugged in with a USB cable, especially one longer than 1m.

    Blops 4 Menue Lag

    Are you running a HDMI splitter? Have you tried a new HDMI cable? If you have your pad connected via a 3rd party USB cable while gaming this can happen.

    Black Ops 4.....Is it time to

    Specialists ruin it for me, I can play for very short bursts and have some great games but if I get hit a few times by Prophets shock mobile or any of the other noob friendly ability's I turn it off and play something else. It has the potential to be great : only one ability per specialist like in Blops3 with a long timer. A judder fix, the blops series goes into a meltdown if a players internet is jittering. Do away with the fog of war. Let all guns have the possibility to run silencers.
  19. And you are running the speed tests / downloads / surfing from where?
  20. Just sat down lol. It should work with nothing altered on the TP Link Type: ADSL/VDSL over PTM Encapsulation: IPoE NO username or password required VLAN 802.1p: 0 802.1q: 101 MTU Size: 1500 If it explicitly asks for logging : your telephone [email protected] Password : 123456
  21. Sorry first day back at work and it’s been mental. If you web search the settings for TT they are online.
  22. Ah right, you write so much I tend to gloss over it 😂 Copying the settings from a reset HG612 to the TP link doesn’t work then.

    If you connect to the router directly, so PC > Ethernet > XR500 do you then see the routers page (GUI)? If not a few Windows CMD to try. ipconfig /all : to check you see a default gateway of ipconfig /release : to release the computers IP ipconfig /renew : to hand out a new IP to the computer
