Hello. I have this modem router for about a month and for about a week now i have issues with about 45-70% packet loss on my games. 

My router stats are:

Downstream Upstream  
   
SNR Margin
:
9.4 12.0 db
   
Line Attenuation
:
11.4 5.9 db
   
Data Rate
:
7637 1015 kbps
   
Max Rate
:
8636 1024 kbps
   
POWER
:
21.2 8.5 dbm
   
CRC
:
18 0  

I have seen the packetloss more on Apex Legends game. I dont see any packet loss with my old modem from another isp i had in the past (0% packetloss) but +20ping on my games.

Things i talked and did on router so far by my own and with my isp:

  • Swap the connection with my ISP from Interleaved to Fastpath (Interleaved ping on europe servers ~80-95, ping with fastpath ~63-77)
  • Add port numbers for the game on port forward.
  • Update to the latest firmware for this modem-router
  • Tried to change the connection type from ADSL2+ to anything else but couldnt get internet work

 

Logs from the router:

@Lexakozz 

You can try to change the MTU to 1440 or 1400, change the DNS to 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4 and test again. Go to Interface Setup--Internet or LAN to change the settings.

I tried 1440 , nothing happend.

I was trying to put 1400 but i got error message: The range of TCP MSS must less than TCP MTU - 40(TCP and IP header)!

 

The technician from the ISP told me that they use 1492 on MTU but that doesnt fix anything.

@Lexakozz 

Thanks for the reply. You did all the troubleshooting already, it looks like this modem does not powerful enough to play the games.

This model is a little old, if you have high requirements for playing games, it is recommended that you buy a gaming router.

 

Good day.
