Hey Scott

Hey man,

Has Knology given you any indication as to when the following routers are going to be fixed?

24.214.0.34
24.214.0.70

This things are still dropping packets like crazy. I tried to email the Admin(s) of these routers and got my message kicked back because of a over quota mail box. My connection used to rock, but now it sucks!!! Tech support want do crap. They just ping your modem and tell you that all is well. If this does not improve I am going to jump over to Bellsouth DSL.

Yes they have. Those are located at our HQ and they are still trying to fix every thing back up due to the recent floods. I'll look into it more for you.

The issue that you are seeing is not related to any slow down in the network. This is only an issue with a router
not resonding to ICMP traffic destined for itself. Try pinging something beyond that, do you drop packets to sites, etc. You say that your connection sucks, give me some information on where you see a problem.

Bfrye,

Go look at:
»Knology router problem

You will see my comments. And both routers are still dropping packets.

I agree that it looks bad, but just because a router is dropping packets that are destined for itself doesn't mean that its dropping forwarded packets. ICMP to itself has one of the lowest priorities when it comes to cpu cycles.
What does traffic look like going thru the router? Not using tools that echo to local interfaces.

This is what a speed test looks like off of knology.net:

2003-05-14 21:23:37 EST: 1598 / 183
Your download speed : 1598001 bps, or 1598 kbps.
A 195 KB/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 183402 bps, or 183 kbps.
Seems like broadband .. above the 1mbit barrier!

Speed test from »msp.speakeasy.net in Chattanooga TN:

2003-05-14 21:28:56 EST: 825 / 210
Your download speed : 825118 bps, or 825 kbps.
A 100.7 KB/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 210881 bps, or 210 kbps.

Everything outside of Knology looks like this. Two weeks ago I would NEVER never drop below 2.0Mb. I also never noticed any dropped packets. I now that Knology can not guarantee anything outside of its network. But give me a break. How many people surf, play games, etc on an INTRANET site/network? That was before the nasty weather. You can not tell me that something has not changed.

Nothing has changed on the Knology network to effect this, however I am cannot comment on anything upstream at this time. Anymore information that you can give me on this would be helpful into looking into this issue.

You say that nothing has change in the Knology network. Why then am I seeing 1598Kbps instead of 2000Kbps, from within Knology's own network, like I was before the weather?

Scott any news yet? A phone tech told me tonight that the maintenance in this area(Madison, Al) has been done, but I'm getting slow bandwidth again 140kps coming from ftp.knology.net. That's not bad bandwidth but it's not what I'm paying for. I've had my service for about a month and it hasn't been good yet except the first 3 days.
