    • Other wired computer slow speed
      Brilliant, just the utility I needed.  I had the same problem, fixed using just the optimize setting.  Thanks!
    • G'day!
      Found this site via a friend and decide to join. I hope to learn something from more knowledgeable people.
    • What is the best site for checking packet loss?
      The best place to test for packet loss is on your computer.  Most websites that test for packet loss run the test on their server, which is basically to test the host end for packet loss rather than your connection.   Like speedtest.net, I never had much luck with pingtest.net either as I've run tests on a line that was giving a fairly consistent 7% packet loss and pingetest.net either failed to load or reported 0% packet loss.   I wrote the following script which measures packet loss against Google's DNS server.  Copy & paste the code into Notepad and save it as "pingtest.bat" on your desktop.  To run the script, just double-click the pingtest icon.   @echo off set /a PingCount=0 set /a PacketsLost=0 set tensec=%time:~6,1% :pingrepeat ping -n 1 8.8.8.8 >nul &&goto pingreply set /a PacketsLost+=1 :pingreply set /a PingCount+=1 set /a Complete=PingCount/10 if not "%time:~6,1%"=="%tensec%" ( echo Test %Complete%^%% complete... set tensec=%time:~6,1% ) if not "%PingCount%"=="1000" goto :pingrepeat set /a PacketLoss=PacketsLost/10 echo Packet loss: %PacketLoss%.%PacketsLost:~-1,1%^%% echo. pause The script can take a few minutes to complete and shows a progress percentage roughly every 10 seconds.   While it's also possible to run this test by typing "ping -n 1000 8.8.8.8" at the command line, normally the ping command waits 1 second per ping, which would take 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

      Nice. Those were a good plane. They used to come in and out of the base I was at. Later, as an engineer, I worked on the electronic engine control which went into the F-5G version later renamed the F20 Tigershark. Many pilots trained in that T-38.
    • Talktalk fibre not impressed!!!
      After having ongoing problems with my line and broadband since 27/09/2015 (before this we had 7.5 Mbps)including 3.5 week no phone or broadband! When we had been told by Openreach they had sorted the fault which they caused only to find they had connected us to another house in our village!   since all this has started oh I forgot to add the problems started when Openreach were working on the feeder pillar in our lane. We have had poor to nonexistent phone and broadband in the end to improve things we moved to fibre and after the live date 10 days ago we had no broadband!! After many calls to talktalk we have had a Openreach engineer find nothing wrong with the line and he tried 2 talktalk routers but no luck! Another call to talktalk and we start the Groundhog Day of going round in circles again. An engineer was required but after over a week has not called the router now has started working by itself at first very intermittent but now solid with the speeds shown below.   Talktalk Superfast broadband I think not!!#%#
