ISP: Comcast High Speed Cable Internet
Speeds: 6Mbps/384Kbps
Modem: Motorola SB5100 SurfBoard cable modem

Issues: (1) Voice of incoming caller drops out for long periods; (2) Choppy audio - parts of words are cut off; (3) Phone will not ring - call goes directly to voicemail; (4) Call will not connect when telephone button is pressed - we get a dial tone and the call goes to voicemail.
Occurrence: Infrequently, but began recently: (the past couple months). Choppy audio occurs frequently.

-
Occurrence:
The voice of incoming callers has dropped out on 4 different occasions, all in the evening. Tests from sites like dslreports.com, bandwidth.com, and testyourvoip.com consistently report packet loss (or low QoS) that is hindering our connection. There has always been choppy audio, but we put up with that since starting our Voip service in March - until the voice dropouts began recently. The other glitches occur randomly, during any part of the day.
-
Network Health:
Always listed in as "Healthy" in our area code.
-
Power-cycle All Equipment:
Done this several times. Left everything off all night last night, then proceded with a clean cycle this morning. Same results.
-
Contact Comcast Support:
I've done the Live Chat and e-mail support on several occasions. It's been a frustrating experience. Every support rep tests my modem and doesn't find any problem. When I run the tracert and ping tests, they claim the numbers are fine. Whenever I present data from the Voip quality tests offered online - those that show the packet loss when my computer is pinged from an outside source - Comcast refuses to acknowledge those test results. It is my belief that our connection is not optimally routed to receive voice data. We start losing data at the same hop: Host(s) 12.117.139.206/12.118.239.170
-
Inspect the Coaxial Lines:
Our house was wired in 2004. It comes from the pole in our back yard to a junction box on the back of the house. It splits from there: one line goes to our TV in the living room. The second line runs to a junction box on the side of our house. It splits there: one line going to a bedroom upstairs (the line is capped with a terminator); the other line goes to to the master bedroom where the installation tech put a splitter to accomodate a TV and our cable modem. I've tried taking this splitter off and running directly to the modem - there was no improvement. There doesn't seem to be a problem with our connection here: our speed is typically good and relatively constant, and our modem doesn't disconnect. The Voip tests indicate, however, that packets are being lost at the same hop: Host(s) 12.117.139.206/12.118.239.170 en route to us.
-
Routers:
Currently, we have a VTech ip8100 broadband phone connected between the Motorola SB5100 SurfBoard cable modem and our computer. I have run all the tests suggested both with the router connected and with it disconnected, and the results remain the same.
-
Check IP Lease Time:
Configured our router to allow 1-week lease time.
-
Slow Connection Speeds:
My speeds are almost always near the advertised 6Mbps/384Kbps. Sometimes the download speeds test much faster (likely due to the dowload speed boost enhancement to our connection recently implemented by Comcast in our area).
-
Update Operating System and Security Programs:
Windows XP Home Edition SP2. I have Automatic Updates turned on and make sure everything is running smoothly. I use Avast! anti-virus and keep it up to date. I use the WinXP firewall and have tested with it both on & off.
-
Tweak Test:
Ran the Tweak Tester II from dslreports.com: (http://www.dslreports.com/tweakr/block:1a1337?
service=cable&speed=6000&os=winXP&via=normal). The results all come back "good" except for a 1 second+ stall, which is directly linked to the route Hop that is losing packets, currently: 12.118.239.170 - which is evident when I run the Line Quality Test from the same site: (http://www.dslreports.com/quality/nil/2091147).
