They have done tests during the spikes, and find "no problems".

Maybe if you got a Hub3 with more downstream channels your problem would go away. This might also be why they can't find an issue, because you are only connecting to 8 downstream channels instead of 24, and as such aren't load balancing correctly as you could with up to date equipment. The amount of available bandwidth available to you is severely reducing by keeping the old kit, so it isn't really doing you any favours at all.

If your wifi coverage is more important to you, then maybe this is something you'll just have to live with. Without changing to a Hub3, you'll never know.

Re: Think Broadband Ping Monitor Results (POST YOURS)

I trialed the hub3 and had the same problems, plus very poor wifi. But once I knew the orientation of the internal aerials, I turned it 180 degrees (so all the cabling was facing me). Only slightly better wifi, but the spikes on the TBBM were the same.

That looks normal for that firmware, future firmware will reduce that yellow.

Remember it is best to share your graph using the supplied BBCode template as this covers up personal information such as your IP#


Copy and paste the contents of this last box having generated your graph:

Re: Think Broadband Ping Monitor Results (POST YOURS)

The other week we had some work done which meant getting a new IP address so I had to make a new thinkbroadband graph. The old IP was just showing all red. I didn't actually delete it for some reason and now I've noticed that the graph has come back to life. This might be a stupid question but is it true after a while that someone in a different area will now have my old IP address or does it not work like that?

That's exactly how it works. When you connect your IP address is taken from a pool (or block) of addresses. Due to the time for the work to be taken your IP addy was returned to the pool and when you reconnected you again drew an IP addy from the pool. Your old IP remained in the pool mand someone else was allocated it.

Re: Think Broadband Ping Monitor Results (POST YOURS)

Thanks for the answers. So what would happen if you were IP banned from a website or service like playstation or something? If the new IP address I received was banned from a website I wanted to sign up to, what would happen?

That IP would be banned from that site.

Exactly what you might expect - that IP remains banned. However most major sites are aware of how this all works and only temp ban an IP address (or if it's banned because you're doing something naughty, they'll go to your ISP and complain).

It's trivial to force a new IP on most ISP's so IP banning is rarely effective for long. Plus if you're being particularly bad, they can ban entire ranges to get rid of you.

Something I'd never thought about till I'd seen the graph go back active. Cheers for the answers.
