Re: [IL] Latency issues.

nope the 173 ips belong to mediacom. its there problem either at the node or the headend make them fix it.

Are you absolutely certain? The trace route is showing RFC 1918 reserved IP addresses:

172.30.9.189
172.30.9.165

NetRange:       172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255

NormanS,

Thanks for pointing this out. I tried to trace it also after the tracert, but found nothing but one site saying it seems to be a router.

Who, or what is this? I mean, I understand it's for 'IANA Special Use' but why? from what I can gather it's not my ISP, could be spoofed, or from my local environment.

You guys can't 'make' someone fix something if that person/company believes there are no issues. His speed was too low for 50/5 tier I agree with that. FYI that speed is advertised as up to 50/5 in case you missed that part and I personally consider anything above 35 Mbit not an issue (this is hardwired to the modem/gateway). His latency while not the best was not 'bad'. Just because you get accustomed to really low latency and now it changed it does not mean there is an issue. I am also a gamer and I know I have no problems with latency below 150ms at all.

Mediacom is a much smaller company with not enough redundancy and scattered plant. Depending on the area you may see more outages than some other areas.

i dont care if mediacom is a small company if your a service provider then spend money on upgrades. and they could add redundancy there just to cheap to do it.

it has to be mediacom because the first 12. is the transfer to att network. Im intregued that it might be the node then the headend.

It is Mediacom, just not their IP addresses. Many ISPs are using RFC 1918 addresses on their internal networks for lack of available IPv4 IP addresses. Some of the larger ones, including AT&T, are using 10.0.0.0/8.

Takes from 6 to 15 seconds for pages to load now... with errors. This is getting old real damn fast.

What speeds are you currently getting?

Oh my d/l and u/l speeds are great, 45+d/l and 5.40+u/l at a 500 mile range, it just takes awhile to get anywhere. These are at hop 3, 4, and 5... and seem to be my problem.

172.30.90.97 MC
172.30.35.65 MC
172.30.88.97 MC

12.250.218.41 AT&T
12.250.28.6 AT&T

The Mediacom owned ones had always ran at 9ms - 13ms response time. They now run from 21ms - 37ms response time. The AT&T owned constantly time out.

DNS servers do not route packets. Those IP addresses are routers.

Routers, yes. Thanks for the correction, NormanS.

Well all I know is they're slow, and ticking me off lol. I've really never had this trouble with them before, just the last couple months they've gotten really slow.

And!

I get this crap every 2 to 3 days... DHCP RENEW WARNING - Field invalid in response v4 option;CM-MAC=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX;CMTS-MAC=50:3d:e5:0b:ba:c6;CM-QOS=1.1;CM-VER=3.0;

Tech here the other day said... "We're all about subs now." so how about fixing your stuff to support all those subs you're pushing for, Rocco.

Been a great weekend here in Ultra 50 land! Oh, and latency is just as good... still.

Does anyone at the top even give a damn about the company anymore, or is "Charge more, fix less" the business model now?

Its the same here in 30mb land... High latency, speed is up and down never stable. Lately i have been lucky to average around 10mb, if i see a 30mb burst on a speedtest thats lucky.

I have pretty much given up on getting what i am paying for, weighing my options.

It's everywhere Mediacom operates. Makes one wish this »fiber.google.com/about/ had started long ago.

Though I'm sure they'll have issues too, but Mediacom seems to have just given up on any sort of system quality. Even when they do know about a problem, the head office seems to limit what they'll allow local areas to repair correctly, in a timely manner.

They prefer them to delay, deny, and outright lie to their customers while they push sales to the max, and run laughable commercials about how "Fast and reliable" they are.
