If you are seeing packet loss using PingPlotter i think there maybe a bug with certain two router set up's.

 

On a windows machine.

Start > run > type cmd > type ....

ping bbc.co.uk -n 25

or

ping twitter.com -n 25

or

ping twitter.co.uk -n 25

 

-n 25 will ping the server 25 times

 

Depending on where in the world you live you would pick a .co.uk or a .com URL or I.P

For Apple users

 

  1. Open Network Utility (located inside Applications > Utilities).
  2. Click Ping.

Then do the above without the -n 25 and enter 25 into the "send only _ pings" instead.

 

If you see 0 loss then its a PingPlotter bug.

Thank you so much for this, I was seriously going crazy using ping plotter and seeing 50-85% packet loss between the netduma and my at&t modem.

If you're having trouble with packet loss on ping plotter it's because the duma uses a packet prioritization that drops packets instead of buffering them to reduce bufferbloat (excess ping) It's perfectly normal, no need to freak out :)
