So I've got a strange problem.
This has been going on for about two weeks now. During the day, I get massive packet loss, about 15%. During the evenings, say, after 1900, all is perfect - no packet loss.
I've called the Wimax dept. at Telkom, they'e logged a ticket, but they said if they come out, and there is nothing wrong, they are going to charge me.
So now, I've plugged my notebook straight into the Alvarion device, and I dialled a telkom account, perfect almost no packet loss (as far as I can tell), when the connection goes through my rouer, then it starts, I've adjusted my MTU to it's optimum value, which for my connection is 1462. Yet the packet loss is continuing.
When I run the router to my 3G router via WAN, it's perfect, no problems.
Just in case, I've reflashed the firmware on my Linksys WRT54 just in case. ( I'm using tomato firmware 1.28)
I have also tried a wholly different firmware and router configuration (vlan), and it's still happening.
I'm at my wits end with Telkom Wimax.
At first my suspicions were on the router, but doing a thorough diagnostic, there is nothing wrong with it. I thought it might be the DSL account, but I tried Openweb Uncapped, and Afrihost.
I'm almost certain it's the Telkom WiMax tower, as the technician said my signal to the tower is an incredible -24 dBi (which I find strange, because that's incredibly strong, yet I'm over 12 KM's away from the station, and it's not 100% LOS as far as I can see. (On a side note, either WiMax is very resilient against interference, or their systems is reporting the signals wrong)
They have also reset the alvarion device, TWICE.
Anybody else having similar issues?
