Thread: Random packet loss MWEB

  1. #1

    Default Random packet loss MWEB

    Basically monitoring ping command to google, then every 20min or so, I will get 3-5 request timed out in succession.

    Obviously, in gaming this is highly frustrating, I do understand its wireless but I dont understand how i get packet loss, in that time interval

    I have 4 bars and get good speed test results

    Anyone else have the same?

    With WebAfrica, but I have the same issue - the problem is with the RAIN network itself. I used to get packet loss and a disconnect at :41, every hour. Now it happens at :11, every hour. I'm told RAIN "don't understand the issue". Been dealing with this for 2 months now... Super frustrating, I want to cancel the service :-(
