Ultimate Cable Packet Loss

Hi all,

So yesterday telstra had an outage in my area which was fixed(or so they say)

I came home from work yesterday to find that my speed is fine, 100+mbps but when i try to connect to xbox live or use battlenet or steam on my pcs I get errors that say 100% packet loss/connection timed out.

I was in contact with the 24/7 chat team last night and the guy i talked to seemed pretty clueless and blamed the entire situation on my xbox and said i should get it repaired :/ but failed to remember i said all my devices in the home were doing this.

I have never had an issue like this before and my internet was working flawlessly up until yesterday's maintenance, i don't believe it is a coincidence and believe telstra have fiddled with something, I just don't know what my next step should be.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help
