Last year I posted in an effort to fix an issue regarding packet loss every 10 minutes or so. This year it has returned with the exact same symptoms as last time it happened:
During the summer the internet was all fine and well. Just until recently it has been giving me hell. Loading webpages,
gaming, streaming all come to a halt.
Attached is evidence of such packet loss.
Maybe the incoming plethora of "maintenances" saying they will reset modems is finally the rumored fix for Intel Pumas?
Is there such a thing coming? I think I've come to the conclusion that the DNS servers are crapping out. The symptoms have gotten a little better but I'm still experiencing drops every so often.
Shaw keeps saying "they're working on it", "we're waiting on Intel to finish testing" bla bla.. typical company replies when they are truly clueless or don't care. So that was my own speculation.
Shaw DNS servers are poor, at least my city's are, add 2 more DNS servers to your network, i use Cloudflare, OpenDNS, Google in addition to Shaw's, so Shaw ones are free to stop resolving whenever they want and we still have DNS.
I've added Cloudflare through Window's IPV4 settings, should I be doing so on the router webpage instead?
Unfortunately for me, I changed the DNS settings under the WAN section and I'm still experiencing packet loss issues.
