10-30% packet loss on DSL from SBC
Posted on 2005-04-28
I have SBC DSL 3mbit connection at home and I have been having connection problems that their tech support can't seem to fix. Hopefully I can find a resolution here...
Basically, my connection is choppy at best and I have a hard time completing downloads as they stall or quit all together. When doing a ping IP -t I consistantly drop 10-30% of the packets I send. SBC says nothing is wrong, and they will charge $60 if they come out and the problem is on my end. I want to make sure it is not on my end before I let them come and look.
The issue persists on winXP home, win2000pro and slax (linux live cd).
Please help!! If it is not an issue on my end, what should I tell sbc?? They seem clueless...
