    CA3LE reacted to mudmanc4 in WPA2 fatal flaw   
    We discovered serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted. This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on. The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites.
    The weaknesses are in the Wi-Fi standard itself, and not in individual products or implementations. Therefore, any correct implementation of WPA2 is likely affected. To prevent the attack, users must update affected products as soon as security updates become available. Note that if your device supports Wi-Fi, it is most likely affected. During our initial research, we discovered ourselves that Android, Linux, Apple, Windows, OpenBSD, MediaTek, Linksys, and others, are all affected by some variant of the attacks. For more information about specific products, consult the database of CERT/CC, or contact your vendor.
    The research behind the attack will be presented at the Computer and Communications Security (CCS) conference, and at the Black Hat Europe conference. Our detailed research paper can already be downloaded.

    Welcome to testmy.net forum @mudman59 ,
     Looks as if the connections speeds are rather sporadic, chances are there are a lot of other customers in the area.

    CA3LE reacted to nsandison in The "My Results" graphs are misleading, they need to be fixed   
    If I want to send a graph to my ISP as evidence of woeful performance, it will need a timescale along the bottom so I can can say for instance "here is a graph of performance tested every 30 mins over the past 24 hours. Then each data point can be tied close to a time of day.  Without an X-axis scale its just a wavy line of speed.

    CA3LE got a reaction from denturkay in Download Test Size   
    You must be getting faster bursts on smaller downloads, it's causing the system to think it needs to test your connection longer than necessary.  I see this myself time to time on LTE and will be improving the algorithm in the future.  As well as offer a settings page where you'll have the ability to input a max test size to give users greater flexibility. 
    Try going to the Download Speed Test, then select your test size manually from the drop down.  Sizes greater than 12MB are set to not forward, so if you select 13MB it will produce a result even if it thinks you should test with a larger size.
    Look down in more sizes to get right at 13MB.  
    You actually should, at your speed, be able to select 6MB from the list and it shouldn't forward you.  But if that doesn't work keep in mind the tip on sizes 13MB and larger.  
    Thank you for reporting this, I'll use your results to simulate the past tests you've ran to help make it better for you in the future.

    CA3LE got a reaction from Pgoodwin1 in clear all present data   
    Instead of deleting you can also change the "Date / Days" fields so that it doesn't show your old results.

    In your case most of your older results are taken before you registered, so you could also hide those by scrolling down below the result list (details).  There's an option at the bottom, you'll see that mine is already toggled to only show the results I logged under my username.

    Hope this helps.  I personally prefer altering the query to display what you want vs deleting because I like to look back at my old results over time.  Will especially be true in the future.
    The program deletes the result across all databases, the next major release it will instead hide the result, allowing it to be recoverable.
    For those who have thousands of results or just want help clearing old results I'm happy to do this on request.  Just shoot me a PM.

    You can go to the Results and hit the checkbox ar the right hand top of the table. It will select all in the table. Then hit the checkbox with the red X on it - that will erase-all in the table showing. Set the number of days at the top to cover what you want. 
    Note - I'm not sure that this will erase all the data in the TestMy database, or whether it just erases what data shows in the graphs.

    CA3LE reacted to alwaysgr33n in Running out of options!   
    My internet speeds are fluctuating wildly, I stream onto Twitch.tv so I can notice any little variation in speeds.  I first had comcast and now I have WOW. Arris Surboard 32 channel model #SBC190 is my modem and an asus RT-AC 3100 is my current router settup.  I was having the same exact issue using Comcasts 2 in 1 router/modem combo.  My speeds should be in the 190-240 down and 10-15 up range.  They will spike both crazy high and crazy low.  The upload seems to be way more inconsistent than the download.  The last tech that was at my house was talking about interference on channel 39 causing some problems.  My overall computer knowledge is most likely a 5or 6/10 and my networking knowledge is prob 3/10 being honest.  

    At this point I am just curious as to what the problem or issue may be.  Also wondering why i get solid results on http://www.speedtest.net/ (ie the exact speeds i am paying for) and testmy.net gives me different results.  I can tell you that this sites results more accurately reflect the nature of my speeds.  Any other information you guys would let me know. 

    I would like to have this fixxed but also pretty curious as well.

    I am not sure how many people actually use the Hughes Net Section of this forum, but I thought I would add that I fixed my issue. Hughes Net is playing games. I figured out how to change my beam during a re-installation process. I noticed that the beam I was on had and (R) after it, so I changed to one that did not. I followed the install process my dish pointing was laready done and I could see the signal was still strong on that beam. Let it do its thing for a few minutes.... ran the re-registration process and...... what do you know.... I am back to 40Mbps plus, acutely hit 44Mbps.

    CA3LE reacted to RossJohnson in Hi from Shelley From Down Under S.A   
    Shelley I would try and sign onto the nbn service if you can. It will work out cheaper in the long run and your phone calls are free using voip service that they provide. Also they can offer fast downloads and or speeds. Some isp's are offering up to 100 Mbps service.  Also although the nbn uses the same old copper cable to the premises it should be within 400 metre to the Node where it connects to the fibre cabling. This should provide some help with copper cable connection problems.
    Hope this helps

    CA3LE reacted to Hepick in Is this reason enough to complain to my ISP....   
    Thank you Pgoodwin1!  I am finally getting speeds that are closer to the plan I have.  Somehow one of the ADSL lines was down and also my lines weren't bonded like they should have been. They sent out a new modem but it wasn't the one that can be used with bonded lines, as it turned out it.  After speaking to them (Frontier) once more, I told the CSR that answered my call to just send the tech out to my home and have them bring the new modem along with them. They came a day early because they were in my area already so that made me really happy.  Then the tech called a few days later to see if everything was still working accordingly!  ...and it was and still is!!  so thanks again for your advice!

    CA3LE got a reaction from Sean in Why is TestMy.net not showing up in Google?   
    Originally when I turned https on it was because you wanted to test on SSL and port 8080... I didn't necessarily want the search engines spidering what we hadn't even tested.  I think Google is going to weigh https sites heavier in the future so I'm moving the site over to https.  They already are but I expect it's going to be even more so.  I didn't realize the noindex was still in there... it's now controlled correctly with a separate robots.txt using mod_rewrite to switch the file.
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^443$ RewriteRule ^robots\.txt$ robots_ssl.txt [L]  
    ...but I've already disabled that in preparation.
    I'll make sure to include a toggle in the new settings with the option to switch between http and https.  But the site itself will completely run on SSL, regardless of the option selected.  And visiting https://testmy.net will no longer trigger that option.  It's really already done, I just want to make sure before I flip it over that I'm not missing anything that will affect pagerank negatively.
    I don't think the noindex on the https version was causing the issue though.  TestMy.net is showing up on Google again, before I removed that line.  Could have been one or a combination of the issues we previously talked about.  I'll keep working to find my mistakes. :-/ -- one constant is human error.

    CA3LE reacted to Sean in Why is TestMy.net not showing up in Google?   
    One possibility is that Google sees too many versions of the index, e.g. uk.testmy.net, dallas.testmy.net, etc.  and only lists a few variants.  I remember this being a pain in the past in the Joomla 1.x days where it would show the same page under various URLs and Google usually ended indexing obscure URL variations of some pages.
    Both Bing and DuckDuckGo have the main test.my homepage URL indexed, so it doesn't seem to be something preventing crawlers from indexing it. 
    One thing I suggest is adding a Canonical meta header tag to the home page to specify "http://testmy.net" as the preferred URL, as explained here.

    CA3LE got a reaction from Ecca in Why Do My Results Differ From Speedtest.net / Ookla Speed Tests?   
    The most common question that people ask us is why their results here differ from speedtest.net. I want to explain something that may help you understand why this is.

    According to the Ookla Wiki the following is true about your tests taken at speedtest.net...
    The fastest 10% and slowest 30% of your results are DISCARDED The remaining data is averaged together to determine the final result Throwing away the fastest 10% and slowest 30% of the results in my opinion does not make for an accurate test. Isn't THAT the data that you're here to see?

    Also note this isn't only true for speedtest.net. Ookla is huge, most of the speed tests online run their software.

    Source: http://wiki.ookla.com/

    Multithreading makes your connection look better
    Ookla speed tests are also multithreaded. Meaning that they open more than one connection to the host and combine the speeds. This often can mask congestion issues. For instance, imagine that you have a pipe along your route that's limiting you to 10 Mbps. If you open more than one connection through that pipe you'll be able to achieve a faster speed... but testing that way will not clue you in that there is actually a problem along the route. Remember, you shouldn't have to multithread your connection to pull your full speed.  
    Multithreaded speed tests, like the majority out there, are designed to benefit the Internet provider not the consumer.  They often display your maximum throughput not your throughput over the course of an entire upload or download.  Omitting the worst portion of your test resulting in inflated scores that may make you feel warm and fuzzy but aren't going to help you see and resolve connection issues.
    Multithreading can show that you're able to max out your connection by combining the speed of concurrent connections but a great connection can max out without having to multithread.

    So, if you have to multithread your connection to get your full speed, you should be asking why that is.  With TestMy.net it's instantly apparent if there is a congested route. Your speed here reflects the actual loading time of data within your browser... not the combined efforts of multiple threads being altered (dropping the top 10% and bottom 30% of the results) and added together, all through a plugin that isn't suited for the task.
    :: EDIT ::
    If you'd like to multithread with TMN, I offer that as well.  Try the multithread speed test.  TMN's multithread test gives you the option to select from an array of servers.  Allowing you to test across multiple routes, to more than one server at a time.  TestMy.net is the only Internet speed test with this ability.

    So THAT'S why your results differ.   --  TestMy.net is a harder test to ace and a lot less forgiving than other speed tests.  But isn't that what a benchmark should be?

    :: EDIT ::
    Another thing to consider is if you're running windows, particularly if it's older than Windows 7 you may need to tune your TCP stack to see your full speeds. Windows doesn't always come out of the box optimized for fast connections. Flash based speed tests fail to detect this problem.

    To make this change for free I recommend TCP Optimizer. This makes changing those settings very easy and nearly fool proof. Just open it, slide the bar over to your speed that you're supposed to have, check "modify all adapters" ...apply the settings and reboot. You should have faster speeds after your re-test if that was the problem.
