hi have eircom 7mb bb, live about 1 mile from the exchange.
just bought a DLink Dir 825 router and billon modem (for bridging), and its for the playstation 3 network.

im having a problem, did a ping test on pingtest.net and i cannot get a packet loss test, is there any setting or way i can fix this.

if you can help me i would be grateful cos ive tried eircom support and
you prob know how good they are.

regards joe.

Can anyone help me understand these results please? What does all this mean exactly? (I understand the speedtest one though except for the 'ping'). I'm with BT/Vodafone. Yesterday my speedtest result stated Vodafone was my ISP. Today it says IOL.

What could be causing such high packet loss?

I changed over from 1MB Eircom to 8MB Vodafone, and nothing whatsoever
has changed.
Do Vodafone actually deliver anything close to 8MB to anybody.
