  • question about port forwarding:
    dati kc gumagana naman, nakakaport forward ako using my dlink router. nka bridge mode nadn ung technicolor ko na modem pero bgla lng nawala. wala naman ako gnawa sa settings, nung nawalan ng connection si sky pag balik nya aun wala nadn ung camera. nag factory reset nadn ako modem and router ko inaaus ko ulit mga setting pero wala padn. sa tingin ko sa modem na ung problem nun. kc wala naman ako binago prior nung nag down ung sky then nung nag online na ulit nawala. kng meron mga marunong sa port forward patulong naman thanks.
  • guys, connected ba account ng destiny cable and skycable? tska connected din ba yung account name and address? balak ko paputol yung skybroadband namin tapos hindi ko babayaran yung termination fee pero naka destiny cable kasi kami ngayon.. currently under sa name ng mother ko, so if ever ma blacklist yung name lang ba nya yun? pwede parin ba ako magapply ng destiny/skycable/skybb under sa ibang name and but still same address?
  • @jac9 if ever man d ka mablacklist and mother m lng mablacklist magkakapatong patong kayo nacharge Lalo sasakit ulo nyo in the future
  • @ongd

    pero papacut ko yung internet then di babayran yung termination fee.. ano mga patong patong na charges pa yun?.. kakainis kasi hindi avail PLDT and converge Fibers sa area namin that time.. 3rd option ko lang talaga SKYBB..

  • medyo maayos lately ang sky, specifically ang youtube. yan ang madalas magloko sa akin eh. kayo ba ay may prob sa youtube? nung nakaraan eh kahit 144p eh ang bagal eh. thanks.


    Na-eexperience ko yan on some videos. Based on my troubleshooting, problematic videos na nagbubuffer(down to 144p) are newly uploaded videos or inactive videos na wala sa Google CDN ni Sky server. So pag napansin ni Youtube stream na kulang yung data sa Sky CDN i-reredirect nya yung stream sa primary SG google server then balik sa Sky server. Kaya nagiging inconsistent sya.
    In other words sure ball na Youtube vids will be seamless if the video has been watched atleast once by a Sky subscriber. Otherwise the video will be seamless in next load.

    Example scenario:
    1080p60fps YT vid:
    - Youtube front end checks every nth seconds for data in nearest(fastest) CDN.
    - If nearest CDN doesn't have enough data get next content in backup CDN (Youtube SG or Youtube Western US). Load at 144p increment till max resolution depending on bandwidth.
    - If nearest CDN has enough data redirect to nearest CDN.
    - Rinse and repeat.

    Kaya workaround ko specially pag may bagong upload yung Youtuber na subscribed ako is to load the video. If the buffer is inconsistent then i'll refresh the video when it starts buffering (usually after a minute mark). By then usually na download na ni Sky Google CDN yung video so consistent na dapat yung stream.
  • eaforlife:

    thanks for feedback. ganun din ginagawa ko, pag ayaw eh refresh na lang. minsan hassle lang kasi 25mbps ka na so dapat mabilis na tapos ganyan ang nangyayari. pero minsan eh may topak talaga sa sky.
  • Any solutions? 50Mbps here from Google Speedtest nasa 45Mbps yung DL speed pero bakit nahihirapan magbuffer ng video sa Youtube kahit 480p? Any fix?

    I may have seen a long reply here regarding my troubleshoot yesterday but to help your case I might suggest to try Hurricane Electric's IPv6 Tunneling service which is free. They have IPv6 tunneling to SG, HK or Japan. Pick one which is suitable for your needs.
    Also if it helps, I use OpenDNS as primary on my network and I only use HE IPv6 tunneling when I feel OC and want IPv6.

    Do note that web services with Geolocation might be affected since it kinda acts like a VPN. But in this case its 6in4 tunneling service.

    If what you are experiencing is ineffective youtube streams like CDN switching from 1 CDN to another this might help since it'll stick to it's closest all the time. The reason I have that as my conclusion is because whenever the video is buffering I turn on Youtube's "Stats for nerds" and trace route the server shown.

    Example:
    Video which is not buffering: CDN is Google CDN in Sky's Local (r2.sn-n3tj5cax-hoaz.googlevideo.com)


    Tracing route to r2.sn-n3tj5cax-hoaz.googlevideo.com [114.108.207.141]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms asus.ea-home
    2 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 192.168.0.1
    3 * * * Request timed out.

    6 13 ms 10 ms 11 ms 130.105.0.25
    7 10 ms 7 ms 8 ms 114.108.207.141

    Trace complete.


    A video which CAN experience buffering: CDN is Google CDN in Singapore or Japan (r3---sn-oguelnl7.googlevideo.com)


    Tracing route to r3.sn-oguelnl7.googlevideo.com [173.194.49.40]

  • ^ I cannot do that while on mobile right? And its too complicated. Wala bang solution like change the DNS? I'm currently using the 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 from Google for almost a year and this month lang siya nagloloko specially sa Youtube, actually mabagal net namin ngayon idk why 50Mbps parin sa speedtest pero sobrang bagal magload ng links, the moment I posted the help yesterday the connection was fine youtube streaming lang yung problem, now I have to deal with slow internet and slow buffer -_-

    There might be a way to that on phone but it may be a hassle. I did on my 3rd party router cause it has IPv6 config.
    So you might want to take a shot on openDNS, might help. I stopped using Google DNS after the Fiber break fiasco since it started to act up since. So my DNS setup is opendns primary, skydns secondary. Google dns fallback 3rd dns.
    I use openDNS due to it being able to manage my network.

    Pa double check lang ako sir ano yung digit for OpenDNS? Baka may mali sa ginamit ko.

  • Mga boss nag upgrade ako ng plan from 1899 to 2899 (50mbps unlimited)

    Halos mag 2 weeks na rin ng ma-confirm ko yung upgrade ko pero hanggang ngayon "facilitate" pa rin daw. Same speed pa rin.

    Next billing period pa ba mag uupgrade yung speed ng sky ko or ano? TIA sa sasagot
    Kada 28 ang due ko.
  • @sala

    On the spot dapat yan pag tawag mo kung hindi na kailangan palitan ang router mo.
