I'm having strange timeouts in my home connection.

I have three devices in my home.

  1. A cable modem (Arris
  2. A WiFi router (NightHawk R7000) with the cable modem as gateway
  3. My computer connected to WiFi router wirelessly on 5Ghz

Now, when I run applications at home I sometimes get network timeouts, and I want to know which device is the faulty one, assuming the connection to my ISP and Internet is just fine.

This is my network ping analysis:

and when I browse the internet I sometimes get that a huge timeout... I'm not sure though which device is causing the issue... the router and cable modem seem to work fine.

How can I debug this further?

  • What is the IP of your computer and which is the router? I presume and respectively... If that's true, then your local network is at fault... either your computer, the WiFi network, or the WiFi router. Can you share more information about your network channel and the RF utilisation (i.e: other devices on your network, or other nearby networks)?

  • Wifi issue. Try and get hold of a couple of powerline adapters Apr 9, 2019 at 21:29
  • @JohnnyVegas do you recommend getting a newer/better Wifi router? Edit: Oh, I just learn about Powerline adapters... awesome! Apr 9, 2019 at 22:23
  • @Attie is the cable modem, is my wifi router, and the last image is a ping to google.com Apr 9, 2019 at 22:24
  • A better wifi router would make no difference and possibly be worse - The best wifi for range would be 80211-bgn. 5ghz+ never has good range, but 200+ speed though. Apr 10, 2019 at 20:41
