Thread: Is 15% packet loss normal with RR/LanCity?

    Question Is 15% packet loss normal with RR/LanCity?

    I just had a 2-way LanCity cable modem installed by MediaOne and I'm having problems with packet loss during Quake2. I get pings in the 40's but the packet loss makes gaming worse than with my old 56k modem. It's just too damn jerky.
    I've tried about 20 different servers that used to give me almost zero packet loss and they're all the same - hundreds of red spikes. Is this something wrong with my system or is it something cable modem users just learn to live with?

    Btw..I'm using DeathMon to measure packet loss in Q2.

    Hmm...I tried repeatedly pinging the same sites from a dos prompt and got no packet loss. What does it all mean??
    Does Q2 have its own size packets or something? What could cause packet loss in Q2 but not in a DOS ping?
    Pleeeease help me.
