Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

If I power off the modem for 15mins and then power it back up will it likely pull down the new firmware. I have an LH1000 running 0.05.04r and a 6ft 1" grumpy teenage son that can not play Call Of Duty.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

This does not explain why a completely different modem fixes the 100% packet loss issue. It is clearly an issue with the Arcadyan modem.

A power cycle is unlikely to pull down the new but there is no harm in trying. You could also try a factory reset. The F@st5355 gateways sometimes refused to install firmware updates until the gateway was factory reset.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

My son has two friends with the exact same problem. Xbox network test reports 100% packet loss. So that is nothing to do with COD servers. He is lucky some games still work. Problem sounds exactly like above so want to know how I can force the firmware update.

The firmware update can't be forced by consumers. Its a matter of waiting for your modem to receive the new firmware.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

I've just gone from cable internet to NBN and now have the same useless router, the Arcadyan. I also have 100% packet loss on our xbox ones. When will the update come? I understand I have 30 days to back out of Telstra NBN if it doesn't work properly. This is unacceptable in my opinion, to go from a good working router to the Arcadyan with all the issues it is having and Telstra still selling this junk without letting us know that it will ruin your xbox live experience.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

Samantha37 I feel your pain.

 

Return it and tell them you want a Technicolor Gen 2 modem. 

 

It works with XBOX Live out of the box.

 

Telstra should have published a note about this problem months ago. And of course they should have fixed it too....

 

I got a replacement Technicolor and have never looked back.

 

The Arcadyan GUI was slow, it felt like it wasn't really ready to be released - more like a beta.

 

No regrets with the Technicolor.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

I just got off live chat to them and they forced the new update and I now have 0% packet loss on xbox one. So I guess it is fixed... it does pay to get in contact with them via live chat and send them a link to this thread, as that is what I did to make them fully aware of the issue

That's not good enough. Try another chat. Tell them about this thread and exactly what the problem is, and you either want the update forced today or a different free modem. Don't let them tell you otherwise. I was very firm, but polite and said if it isn't resolved I will put in a complaint.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

This is joke. I also have this issue with the 100% packet loss on Xbox One. Details are:

Gateway Make Model: Arcadyan LH1000
Firmware Number: 0.05.04r

Everything works fine except with the Xbox One. Evidently I'm not alone. I tried customer support, referenced multiple threads on the issue and even Platinum were unable to help. Telstra also refusd to accept that there are 2 different variants of the Smart GEN 2 (Technicolour and Arcadyan).

Is there any update on when I might receive the latest Firmware?

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

@River-Bank Can you restart your modem and check the firmware version again about half an hour after it restarts and let us know if it updates automatically for you?

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

I restarted the modem via the Gateway URL and its still the same firmware.  I have rebooted it again but will give it until tomorrow.  Now that I have confirmation that updated firmware is out, I'm feeling a lot more comfortable.  I'll send an update tomorrow or sooner if the update occurs beforehand.  Thank you for everyone's help.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

Good News: I did what Shellock said and it finally updated. I have checked my Xbox and the 100% packet loss has now been completely reduced to 0%. I am now also able to log into the Xbox One's 360 emulator when playing backwards compatible games etc.  It all works fine now.  Yay!

 

I can confirm the following for anyone reading this:


Gateway Make Model: Arcadyan LH1000
Old Firmware Number: 0.05.04r
New Firmware Number: 0.06.07r (this one works correctly with Xbox One)

I manually restarted the router via the the gateway's user interface at web address http://192.168.0.1. Before logging in, this page also shows your modem's model number and firmware version. To log in, the default Username/password are ......admin/Telstra. You can change these of course.

'Go To Advanced'..........'Management'.........'System Reset' tab.......'Restart Device'.

Eventually after about an hour, the modem updated itself. I did actually restart it again within that period just to be sure. You'll know its updating because the green light on the modem will start flashing white .....then go orange.......and eventually back to green. I think I also lost internet connection during this update.

Thank you Shellock and Yastiandrie. I should've just posted here to begin with instead of spending hours with the online chat feature. Your assistance has been much appreciated.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

It's definitely the modem. When this was happening to me - before the firmware update - I connected to Xbox Live via a wifi hotspot rom my phone. As soon as I did this, the packet loss reduced to 0%. I found this a quick way to check. I would have simply used my old modem to test but it was packed away during a recent move. Others on this forum however have reported luck (prior to the firmware update) by using their original modem.

Hopefully the update works out for you.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

I had exactly the same issue, swapped to NBN HFC from Telstra Cable and changed over from a Netgear Router and Telstra Cable Gateway to the NBN Cable Gateway and Telstra Smart Modem™ Gen 2.

- I only found out the issue with XBox on the weekend - 5 days into the new service.
- Rang Telstra and spent over an hour on the phone with a guy from Telstra Platinum who didn't understand my issue. He kept asking what games I play and hadn't heard of XBox Live. His english was pretty bad so in the end I gave up. He wanted to charge me $90 initially but it would be conditional on him getting it working.
- I had a previous generation modem (Technicolor DJA0230TLS FW 17.2.0320-820-RA) that I had never used - so I set that up and it all works fine. I am getting 90+Mb/s downloads and 30+Mb/s uploads and it all works great. I'll keep this modem as it allows me to put an external 4G antenna in as I am in outback Brisbane and am in a blackspot.
- I haven't done any port forwarding & I have two fully functional Xbox One X devices running simultaneously.

So conclusion, it's the modem Telstra..... fix it.

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

Is anyone still having issues with this problem?  I have spent all day on live chat, NBN technical support and Platinum.  None of them appear to have any idea what they are doing.  I have explained the issue, linked all of the thread, explained that the current firmware 0.05.04r needs to be upgraded to 0.06.07r, restarted the modem 3 times, reset the modem and still no resolution.  I don't know where to go from here.  Everyone I have dealt with at Telstra has no idea.  It is definitely a modem issue as I can hotspot off my phone and not have any issues. I don't know where to go from here.  Do I just go to the ombudsman??

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

The ability to force the firmware update by rebooting the modem was discontinued over the weekend. You will have to wait until it is your modems turn to receive the update. Your first step is lodge a complaint with Telstra by calling 132200 and when asked for reason of call say complaint or using the online complaints form. If complaint not successful contact TIO https://www.tio.com.au/consumers 1800 062 058

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

What a complete joke Telstra is.

 

This Gen2 modem was supposed to reduce support calls.

 

The Arcadian is a piece of garbage that wasnt tested properly before it was released. 

 

Telstra have their head in the sand and denying there is an issue at all.

 

Honestly Telstra who is running your technical support area for NBN?

 

They should be sacked.

 

The answer is:

a) acknowledge the problem in a blog post or web page or whatever

 

b) provide a link to download the revised firmware or instructions on how to force a firmware update

 

This isnt rocket science. 

 

Problem first raised 3 months ago, still not fixed. 


Seriously moronic effort from Telstra. 

 

And they have the gall to ask you to pay for Premium Support to fix a problem they created!!

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

The roll out is always due tomorrow then, as tomorrow never comes.
How hard is it to provide details of the known defects and their status and what we can expect in the next firmware update.
- Issue X Resolved pending roll out of firmware version 6.6.6 or
- Issue Y is a candidate for 6.6.6 but still finalizing testing
- Issue Z not a snow balls chance in hell of making firmware release 6.6.6 because the fix caused more errors than the original problem so the software boys are going back to the drawing board on that one and we have pulled the changes from the build of that firmware release
Then tell us what is holding up the release of the firmware. Soon means absolutely nothing ...

Well, it is not rocket science, but it is not as simple as you might think... I used to work on firmware development (for something significantly more important and complex than modem/routers) and I know it is not easy... I am currently involved in software development project... 

To be honest, it is a known fact, that fixing one bug, usually creates at least two new ones... Just kidding... NOT!

Anyway... I am sure those poor, underpaid software developers in unnamed country are doing their best...

Re: 100% Packet loss on Xbox One

Sorry Iain, but you are just plain WRONG in this assertion.
It's typical tech-support BS to blame anyone else for the problem instead of taking ownership of it.

How do I know you're wrong? Because I've been helping a mate try to solve this issue for weeks. I'm a qualified hardware tech and network engineer, and I EASILY proved the modem is at fault.

With the Arcadyan Smart Modem Gen 2 TL1000, 100% packet loss for COD on Xbox.
Change back to the Telstra Frontier Gateway modem, 0% packet loss, and COD plays just fine.

So how can that be down to the COD servers? It's very clearly the Arcadyan modem that's at fault. As the newly released firmware upgrade (that my mate is still waiting on) has proven.

Also, this same modem bug causes massive packet loss on Telstra TV, to the point it's unwatchable. Changing back to the Frontier modem completely fixes the problem.

So maybe in future, stop being in such a hurry to pass the blame onto third parties, and actually try investigating the problem? Assuming, of course, that you're actually qualified to do so.. far too many so-called "tech-support" people have very little real IT skills, and just read off scripts on-screen in front of them.. are you one of them?
