Re: Gen4/Changes Coming After Jan 1
said by TexasRebel:No. It COULD meant that, but rarely does on a ping or tracert.
Everywhere you see timeouts, means it's dropping packets because the bandwidth isn't there or it a software problem..
What it USUALLY means is a router that is setup to not respond to ICMP requests. Not at all uncommon on some networks.
If the final IP in a tracert does not accept ICMP, then the trace never completes. for intermediates, you just get a timeout and it moves on.
An example of a site that won't accept? Try tracing or pinging www.microsoft.com

no, it's definitely a bandwidth issue or a software issue on the ground. here's a tracert I did earlier this morning around 6:30am.
I understand about some routers not responding to iCMP pings. But these packet losses are happening during peak times, which it seems for HNG4 it's 9AM-2AM, a 16 hour window.
much different outcome at around 6:30AM.

OK, since the missing hops are mostly outside the Hughes network it probably just is a true timeout. Have your tried opening up the tracert timeout window?
