  3. Speed test wrong?

    Great to hear, Cheers to the owner!
  4. Speed test wrong?

    There was something wrong in the NY server path. It’s been fixed. I was getting very erratic results. TMN owner fixed it. Mine’s back to full speed too.
  5. I'm going to break things down bit.. by bit... by bit... because I can... and I'm bored. "When you go off grid to different servers you take a journey across strange and far away lands. You cross other networks, other servers, and will get different paths at different times of day and night due to heavier or lighter internet traffic. Why should a provider like Spectrum or Comcast be to blame for slow speeds and poor connection when you are requesting information, or even a speed test, from someone else's network?" Because most ISP actually guarantee that on their end and state that it is the speed you'll get. When it's mostly not true. Power users usually look at +/- and understand the losses during up time and downtime. However an average Joe wouldn't. That is why. If an ISP is stating 250mbps. Then you should be getting somewhere near that. "If you bought a new car and the manufacturer promised that it would get 60MPG, that means under normal driving conditions, or keeping it on the smooth flat roads....in network. Now when you take that car across country, out of network, up and down mountains, back country roads, and mud holes...poorly maintained infrastructure, remote locations, bad servers...you let less MPG, or in our case Mbps. Are you gonna blame the car manufacturer for the lowered MPG when you took the car into strange locations?" Yes, a poorly designed frame, body weight placement, bhp to whp performance ratio, and shock absorbent on struts and shocks for a vehicle can cause heavy MPG downfall. Which is the manufacture's issue, especially if advertised only on "optimal situations". Especially if I buy a SUV that can barely handle highway roads and pot holes, when it is advertised as an OFFROAD in their commercial and marketing. Yes. I would heavily blame the manufacture. If the issue is big enough it can be a class action suite as well lol Isn't it fun when I know a little about the interwebs and cars? Your point you're making is valid in principle. btw, you have a shitty boss. My boss blames the traffic If we are taking about the internet and highways. Let's really come back up from the dumb-down version for end users. We relate it to the highway to give newbs and low-end users an understanding of what the internet works with or like. That's a lot of empty land mass if you look at a map. Your internet highway had multiple exits, routes and connection that is a two way lane and your car can travel either direction without a loss of speed or slow down. Congestion doesn't happen on the road, it happens on the terminating node or server, so pretty much a ball of yarn is what the internet looks like as "highway" surrounding the globe. X amount routes and nodes it can connect and move to. This is why you get packet loss (one of many reasons) when you are hitting a bad node/server. right? riiiight. However, if your ISP in North America says "You will get 300mbps download speed" and the users are testing at "230mbps" from Mother Russia, then that's not bad. Because 150mbps isn't hard hit for power users, unless you are expecting exactly 300mbps consistently ... which I would consider silly because that won't ever be true, speed fluctuate. but for users who have ISP telling them "You will get 25mbps download speed" and they are getting "0.01mbps or 10kbps" as a test from same server in Mother Russia then the issue would be more so the ISP then "situational highways" The Infrastructure that is lagging is normally the ISP and the agreement of other ISP by the said ISP, it is business and throttling. Nothing more. Like I said, the point you're making is very much valid in principle... but you forget what TMN here is for. Ookla for example, shows you ideal results. TMN at least shows you how crappy the roads are. Your message fully felt like the hate on the the glory of TMN. So what false information are you referring to? the ones you are trying to portray? because that's what it sounded like to me, a one sided view. So I wanted to add mine. My issue is other Speed Test sites, some have partnered up with ISPs (they get a kick back). I don't think TMN is saying your ISP suck; TMN shows what it pulls. Just. Data. Now, you wanna hate your ISP, your dog or your neighbour for sleeping with your wife, it isn't TMN's issue. What you do with the data logs is up to you. It's a tool to help YOU. A tool. That's it. FYI, I am adding to the friendly debate, with humor along the way. I could be horribly wrong. Who knows. Also. WHAT IS WITH THAT GIANT FLOWER?!
  6. Happy Birthday!

    The fact that I have realized the power of GIF here... I am going to be having fun. Trolololo Haha yea I read the PM first, habit of reading PMs before Posts on Forums Wait. I JUST realized YOU MADE MY LABEL "this guy's cool" LOL
  7. Last week
  8. Speed test wrong?

    Just ran a few test and it seems to be back normal? Tried a few on the NY server w/out my VPN and the results were back to where they were previously.
  9. Hi all, I've been having some pretty severe connection speed issues lately with Charter/Spectrum in the Saint Louis area (see my results for example). I noticed it start back in September when regular images and gifs would take anywhere from a few seconds to over a minute to load. I'm currently on a 100/5 plan, and everything was fine prior to that, but am seeing speeds dip down to 500Kbps or lower in regular intervals. I've been capturing a lot of wireshark data and running a lot of autotests and it appears that the issue is just getting worse. Wireshark is showing a ton of TCP retransmit and TCP DUP ACK errors when I encounter the slow speeds. I tested my connection plugged directly into my modem and while connected to my router. My PC is hardwired using CAT6. Everything is fine as long as I stay within the Charter network, I can stream YouTube videos, Netflix, Google music etc. but all of those services appear to terminate within a data center that is fairly local to me according to some trace routes and WinMTR. However, if I need to download something like a Linux ISO, or a large firmware update that has to travel outside of Charter's territory, I'm hit with extremely slow speeds, in the range of 500Kbps, causing downloads to take an obscenely long time. I've been fighting with Charter support for a bit over 2 months now at this point, they've sent multiple techs out to verify the hardware and everything checks out (Lines, modem, termination box). I'm convinced that there is a logical routing issue or BGP issue somewhere down the line but I am unable to get solid evidence or get in touch with a network engineer on their side. I wanted to see if I could be missing something here on my end or if anyone has experienced a similar issue and was able to get it resolved? Let me know if I need to provide more information and I would be happy to.
  10. Happy Birthday!

    Thank you ShakTib! by the way, the PM I just sent you... where I literally said "you're cool" ---that was before I noticed this message. See, trust you're gut... "This guy's cool." ...tyg 2018
  11. Change the display name

    to PM me hover over my name and click "Message"
  12. Change the display name

    Just send me a PM with the name you'd like to use. I'll change it for you. Heads up: The reason it's not enabled where you can do that yourself is because I need to manually run a program to globally edit the results database entries to reflect the change. In the future those will be tied together so you can change your username yourself. It's definitely become a more frequent question so that (among many other things) will be definitely built into the site.
  13. Happy Birthday!

    Okay, so I was just going through forums topics and profiles, and just realized,.. It's @CA3LE's birthday today! Happy Birthday Damon! Hope you have a good one, I don't know if you celebrate or not but I wanted to wish you a happy birthday and show some gratitude! It's on a Friday, so this might be a fun weekend for you, if not ... MAKE IT ONE! Wohoo!
  14. Show off your SLOWEST internet speedtest

    I'm... speechless...
  15. faster my connection data

    Without paying for it? Better hardware, to avoid bottle neck is the most you can do without changing/upgrading your internet plan. Usually your ISP throttles based on what plan you have with them.
  16. Hughesnet & Exede installer

    But a pretty android app would be nice! and sure iOS can tag along too >.>
  17. Latency Issues all a sudden.

    Hey @wyantm06 Did you figure it out? I would think your router may be going bad if its causing whatever channel you switch to, to go bad. Curious to know what your solution was. I hope it's fixed since you posted!
  18. Very bad upload speed

    Hello @Gene Hacker HughesNet Gen5 is satellite internet provider, yes? Your response time technically, should be, terrible or at least not the best. My ISP is coaxial direct line, not satellite, and I have 250mbps down & 20mbps up. What exactly is your plan giving you? I checked their site, and I can't seem to pull a list of their plans offered to get an idea. However other review sites indicate your plan at 3mbps upload Satellite internet is not meant for anything real-time, like online gaming or video streaming / video calls. (They will work, but very very horribly). Netflix type service will work, because they can buffer they are not true "real-time". my 20mbps at TMN gave me 10.3mbps to 15.6mbps result (tested it while typing this up). You getting normal speeds at kbps is normal. Most of my p2p share uploads run in 300kbps. (even after trying to max up), but the client states I can go as high as 4mbps with p2p client test. Few variables may indicate if you can do anything, if at all . What are you trying to upload? If this is not a single/multi file upload; are you gaming, streaming, attempting remote access to work pc or alike, video/skype calling? Cheers, Shak
  19. Anyway to prevent and/or monitor outbound traffic? I am looking for some sort of application that can monitor all my outbound traffic and see what files were accessed? Logs would be appreciated because I can go through it weekly to see if I am being exploited? I keep my PC running for p2p sharing, and curious if this is safe? (It's never safe is it?) I wanted some way to block access to my personal files and allow only select folders to be able to upload / transfer outbound. Can Firewall do this? Because thus far, with my very mellow understanding of networking, I thought / assume firewall allows/blocks application from communicating, not files. Any input would be great!
  20. Change the display name

    I'd like to change the display name on my account. How do I do that?
  21. And you laugh at my tin foil hat XD

    I need to make a tin foil hat with all these big brother and conspiracies .... O_o MSN Messenger was 11 years ago? Jeez. how old am I? >__<" (I am reviving this thread, I know) Has anyone seen any new developments on this?
  22. Drivers affected when installing TestMy

    TestMy.net is not a program you install, it runs in your browser. Look closely at what you've installed, let us know what it is and we'll help you get rid of it.
  23. I just installed TestMy yesterday and immediately after installation and running about 5 speed checks, my Lenovo failed to communicate with my printer. Worked perfect before. Realize coincidences occur but seems odd. Checked my laptop and found that now, Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter & Intel Turbo Boost Technology Driver with Dynamic Power This device(s) cannot start. (Code 10). I have tried unsuccessfully for 2-days to uninstall and reinstall with no success. Is it possible the MyTest installation affected these 2 drivers? Can't see the connection but at my wits end. Retired IBM Systems guy.
  24. NY server problem

    Try ny.testmy.net again, moved to another data center for the 2nd time. I'm pulling MUCH better bandwidth from my home to the New York server now.
  25. SSL no longer supported?

    I second that, though I heard it from the same person.
  26. SSL no longer supported?

    Curious, heard from a few people trying to sign up for an account to do speed testing that they aren't getting confirmation emails? Is the email system down or? I suspect it's related to last night.
  27. SSL no longer supported?

    Thank you for the heads up. HTTPS needed some extra attention. This should be working correctly for you. I also made changes to the iframe code so it's working correctly with https and outputting the share URLs in https as well when you're viewing from https. Please let me know if you see anything odd, I'm still working on the master server and running apache on the slave... but everything should be in order now.
  28. SSL no longer supported?

    Noticed the website was having issues earlier, however, once things started going back to normal I noticed some iframe links that I use are still broken for my test results. I then noticed that the website is no longer in SSL and my iframes point to the HTTPS version of the site. I figure, "well, lets see if the iframe code changed any" and it did, none of the links are secure in the code when viewing results... Will this be fixed or? EDIT: Guess I jumped the gun! Soo many websites have had strange issues tonight. Looks like HTTPS is working once again. Thanks to the staff working overtime on keeping this place going!
