Verizon High Speed Internet dropped and Unstable signals online gaming impossible

Message 1 of 2

Where to begin, dropped Charter communications for their unstable internet services, switched to verizon 9 months ago, had great stability and connection up till this recent friday.  Contacted and called Verizon (got a ticket put in, got a confirmation text that it would be resolved by Monday 08/18 12:42PM)  still received drop signals and instability, Ticket that was texted couldn't be tracked to check on progress on verizon.com/repair

 

I am losing quickly faith in staying a customer, My only two options is since it's been almost a year, I only have Charter to crawl back to, or go with COmcast which i hear is equally as terrible, I also called yesterday, gentelmen said they would call me back (nobody did) and the connections today is still dropping constantly.  I am putting this in here and encouraging everyone to who is going through simliar or same problems let me know if you found a alternative or solution?

Step one: Visit http://www.giganews.com/line_info.html and post up the Traceroute the page shows, if you wish. Be aware that your non-bogan public IP Address will show up.  It might shown up as the final hop (bottom-most line of the trace)  might contain a hop with your IP address in it. Either remove that line or show only the first two octets. What I'm looking for is a line that mentions "ERX" in it's name towards the end. If for some reason the trace does not complete (two lines full of Stars), keep the trace route intact.

For example this what I saw when I was using Verizon

Step two: Can you provide the Transceiver Statistics from your modem?

#3 If you don't know how to get that info:

a) What is the brand and model of your modem?

b) If you have a RJ-45 WAN port router connected to it: What is the brand and model of the RJ-45 WAN port router?

#4 If you have a RJ-45 WAN port router connected to the modem, even if you know how to get the Transceiver Statistics from the modem: What is the brand and model of the RJ-45 WAN port router?
