CA3LE got a reaction from mudmanc4 in Sorting Posts
The top posts in many forums may be "sticky" which forces them to the top even if they're old. Look for the little pin next to the topic.
After you're used to that you'll glance at those and automatically move your eyes down a few topics to see the new content for the forum you're looking at.
see the green pins
Some of the topics that are sticky (pinned) right now don't need to be. When I get a moment I'll go through, revisit the topics and see what's relevant right now. With less of them pinned will be less confusing.
CA3LE reacted to Joesolstice in No .csv Results
Until yesterday I could Download my results (all results from the beginning of my membership) to Excel. Starting yesterday I started getting:
I can see the Data and take Screen shots by cannot DL the data for use in Excel.
I have attached a current and Prev Excel file.
Any help appreciated

CA3LE reacted to ShakTib in Happy Birthday!
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!
CA3LE got a reaction from Pgoodwin1 in Australian Servers?
TestMy.net is based in the USA but has servers across the globe. You've been automatically testing against an array of servers closer to you in Sidney, AU.
See the little flag in your result details. You can also hover over that for more details.
The number of hops to display the results in irrelevant. By the time that's happening... the test is already completed and the result is only waiting for final calculations. Results are only sent back to TestMy.net's home for processing and logging to databases. Switch to a US speed test mirror and you'll see the difference.
Bottomline, your ISP is either blowing smoke or they're just ignorant. In our experience here... most ISPs would love for you to dismiss TMN results.
For 100 Mbps, you're not doing bad at all.
CA3LE got a reaction from Pgoodwin1 in testmy.net http response do not have "no-transform"
Very good point.
When I was having issues a little while back I had commented out a few lines and never reverted. Can you please confirm that it's working properly for you now?
... that would definitely explain some other emails I've recently received.
CA3LE reacted to ramkris in testmy.net http response do not have "no-transform"
Now I see the download test packets payload with alphanumeric characters and no-transform directive in the http response.
CA3LE reacted to anthonybee in Intermittent Drop Out
For the past year I have been running Net Uptime Monitor (netuptimemonitor.com) on Windows. I find it excellent. OK, it costs USD 10, but it really works. Every 10 seconds it pings Google, and if no response it will successively ping two other servers of your choice. If no response from any of the servers pinged it logs your internet connection as down, logging the time it went down and its duration. Over the past 24 hrs, for example, it logged my internet failing 84 times, the duration of the fails ranging from 10 secs to 1 hour !
CA3LE reacted to mudmanc4 in Australian Servers?
@barney79, Welcome to testmy.net forum.
If your testing to a specific server such as the testmy.net Australian server, and the test is originated from the same continent, that is where the test is run. Full stop.
The reporting server has no bearing on the test results. The test has already been completed before results are sent anywhere, the Australian test server simply reports findings to the main testmy.net server, records them into the database, and reports back to you, after the test has been taken.
If you were to run the multi threaded test ( selecting more than one server, then yes there would obviously be more variables involved) but that is not your question or case it seems.
Not sure where the provider is getting this information, but generally speaking, that theory would not be viable in any test environment. As you may well already be aware of.
CA3LE reacted to ramkris in testmy.net http response do not have "no-transform"
When running download tests with testmy.net I observed the payload of the test packets are all 0's & 1's which is highly compressed by our gateway/routers/proxies. Because of this we see unrealistic rates which does not match with our network link capacity. Also, more importantly I observed the http response from testmy.net does not contain the "no-transform" directive which if present would have notified the intermediate proxies to not compress/modify the test packets. Is there any plans to update your http responses with "no-transform" directive?
CA3LE reacted to Bleakheathen in bleakheathen
It would make life easier if the date and time for each test record was separated. That is, when the csv file is loaded into a spreadsheet, the date and time loaded into separate columns. This would allow ready examination of connection performance by time. Otherwise, extremely valuable tool.
CA3LE reacted to Sam Pender in Yet another idea: Time of day/day of week/date on graphs.
Very useful site. Good to hear time/date is being thought about.
CA3LE reacted to sgbotsford in Yet another idea: Time of day/day of week/date on graphs.
It would be nice if the graph had a proper time axis on it. This way if you are testing a satellite link with several tests back to back, followed by several hours of nothing, they would show up properly.
It also allows you to pick out the best times to run large downloads.
Big key feature however is so taht you can give the small claims court a printout showing how screwed up your ISP is at meeting the terms of your agreement.
Yeah, I could do it myself in excel, but having the online version makes it easy to show a general trend, and gives it more credibility.
Having vertical lines for days, weekends shaded in a somewhat different color, and dates running on the bottom for long range plots.
CA3LE reacted to Sean in Here we go again. No detected provider.
I am now able to replicate the issue at my end:
The first two tests were over IPv6 (using the HE Tunnel Broker) and the second two tests were with IPv6 connectivity disabled.
I'm not sure if the TestMy tests fully implement IPv6 support, however, the website itself has IPv6 connectivity. The second ping below is when I re-enabled IPv6 on my network adapter:
I'm not sure if the Hughes Network provides IPv6 connectivity, but if they now do, this may explain the provider identification issue.
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.
