Problems gaming on Sky 40mb Uk
« on: December 02, 2019, 08:32:01 PM »

Hello, sorry very new to all this.
Am on Sky, have been for 2 years and had no major issues. Am running at Asus RT87 with Merlin WRT firmware and a HG612.

The HG612 wasnt unlocked, but just worked,  have been using it fine since early Summer.

Mostly playing Battlefield 5 at the mo.

Since around a week to 10 days , am experiencing a lot of "lag" when gaming. The latency isnt too bad, was 35 ish, and not really seeing packet loss, although have seen a little from time to time.

Nothing changed PC wise and no major game patches when it began. Its 2700x , Vega64, x470 , Win 10 pro 1909, cpu/gpu water cooled, temps etc are all fine across cpu/gpu/chipset etc.

Wasnt sure whether network to begin with and still not entirely convinced, but I've reinstalled every driver known to man, gpu, chipset, network , sound etc etc. Last Friday even reinstalled Win10 completely fresh install. But the problems still persist, even with only really Origin installed , BFV still exactly the same issues. Friends arent really seeing the same problems.

Have fully powered off the router / modem a few times, changed cables etc.

My suspicion is still network as it gets much worse in the evening. Lots of slight stutters and hangs, much better in the afternoon during the week.

The HG612 wasnt unlocked, so i've unlocked today with the wolf firmware ( thanks ) .

One thing I've instantly noticed today is my Latency in game is now generally 25 ish which matches friends in other areas in the country, where as before it was always 35 ish. However still the stutter and lag and is much worse at the moment in the evening.

Is there anything anyone can suggest - heres some stats i've gathered from DSL stats.

Your stats looks good, I think your modem was on old firmware which may not support g.inp properly. Now when you upgrade firmware DLM should kick in, leave modem for few days.

Thanks for taking a look, yes I'll keep monitoring going foward .

Are there any obvious changes on the stats that would indicate Dlm has made any changes ?

Well it won't change a lot as you already at the max speed for your package, your connection could go a bit higher looking at your max speed.

Gotcha, thank you.

Just realised had the Router + 612 running since early Jan this year, not the summer, not that it makes much difference.

The Asus Rt87 wrt firmware was a year or so behind as well, so updated but not necessarily expecting any major changes there.
