Boston suburbs, 6:30 pm, pure crap.

 

Performance has become dramatically worse in last two days.

Log into router

 

Top right - System Monitoring

 

On left - Advanced Status - Answer Yes

 

Bottom selection - Bandwidth Monitoring

 

Stream something - it'll update every minute or so.

 

800 is bad.  1400 on a small screen might look okay, but still bad. 2500 - 3000 is getting acceptable.  5000 - 6000 is great.  9000 - 11000 is 3d (not all Netflix providers, i.e. Roku, can do 3D).

This is what it looks like when the traffic isn't jammed up on Verizon's connection.

I'll post the data at 6.30pm this evening.

 

What do the numbers you posted above relate to?

800 what? 5000 what?   TX or RX? I don't see anything resembling those numbers in what you posted.  Mayber it'll come clear to me when I stream something but none of my figures look anything like the numbers you're quoting.

RX Rate.  Around 800 - 900 in first image. Over 4000 in second.

It's 6pm

 

Besides 3 people playing on the internet I have 2 devices streaming Netflix, one via the tv and the other via a roku 3.  The tv is wirelessly connected and the Roku is wired

Both are at 1080 resolution, no buffering no artifacts

 

 

I'll post the next one at 18.30

I suspect that it's the path your dns server are directing youre devices to use - I'm using open dns servers

It's nearly 7pm and I still haven't seen any issues.

I'll leave it running the way it is for a while but these are my current figures,

Nearly 8pm, still no issues and we're well into prime time

 

What are you seeing?

I'm still running 2 netflix streams at 1080 plus normal inieternet traffic
