  1. Is my upload speed the problem?

    Second Cox tech came out with a meter and tested the levels coming from the wall jack, determind that the line was too noisy for DOCCIS 3, so we moved it to a bedroom he said the first guy should have done that. My download is better but my upload is crap. He said I should only expect about 5 Mbps up which only ookla shows which is fishy. They also blame my wiring for being old (I'm in an apartment.)
  2. Is my upload speed the problem?

    Cox tech came out and said rats had chewed the line, so he replaced some cable. He said if it still happens within 24 hours give them a call. BTW I'm paying for 300/30 Mbps and this is what I'm getting after the tech came... So yeah I will be calling them back
  3. Is my upload speed the problem?

    So I'm on hold with Cox, at first after telling me to reset my modem (I already did that) she tried to tell me to clear my internet history (um what?), then she reset something on her end which made it worse. They wanted to send a tech out, I told them it shouldn't be the wiring since the upload speed is fine, but this supervisor told me the only thing they can do is send out a tech. So let's see what the tech says tomorrow.
  4. Is my upload speed the problem?

    My provider is cox. I often have tabs that either freeze or are stuck refreshing for like 15 or 20 seconds. I did a speed test and my download speed is 76 Mbps but my upload is 1 or less. I know I had a frustrating time waiting for steam to send my game saves to the cloud last night. Will complaining to my ISP even help?
  5. DNS Settings

    I've been using grc.coms DNS benchmarking tool for years. The cool thing is he tests uncached results as well as cached. Uncached results are when the DNS server dosn't already have a the IP address cached and has to look it up. Also it shows which DNS servers will redirect 404 pages and what not https://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm
  6. How to Verify/Confirm Your True Speeds

    I just went to speedtest.net with noscript enabled which got me to there "no flash" (I'm assuming HTML5) beta, interesting the results are the same as they are here, but when you go to the regular flash site, it says my speed is blazing past what I pay for.
  7. Thanks for the great site

    Oh, gotcha, I have yet to call them, I'm afraid there going to say it's the buildings infrastructure (I'm in an apartment) but I'll have to call and see.
  8. Thanks for the great site

    Sorry forgive my ignorance, what is BT?
  9. Thanks for the great site

  10. Thanks for the great site

  11. Thanks for the great site

    Okay when I did the multi 50MB my download was 52.8, the upload with 12MB's I'm getting 5.4 - 5.6. I had to restart my modem after plugging back into my router, I guess the modem didn't like the Ip/Mac address change. single threaded download is now 28.8 up is 1.6
  12. Thanks for the great site

    I'm wired, so I plunged directly into the modem and I'm getting 27.9 down and 7.4 up
  13. Thanks for the great site

    I came here after being frustrated that speedtest.net was showing that I was getting my full speed (or faster) but websites would sometimes take several seconds to load, and videos could take up to 5min. I forgot who referred me here it may have been someone from slashdot or reddit I can't remember. Anyway here's my question: I pay for 50 down 10 up with Cox communications I'm in Orange County, California. Today speedtest.net shows I'm getting 60.16 Mbps down 6.32 Mbps up. I did the single threaded test here and I'm getting 27.9 Mbps down and 5.7 Mbps up, Multi-threaded shows 47.1 Mbps down and 1.6 Mbps up. So it seems I'm getting half or less of what I'm paying for and am feeling ripped off I would gladly pay less for a my actual speed if they could promise me that, but I'm afraid it would be actually slower. oh and my modems a Motorola Surfboard SB6141. Again thanks for the great site.
