  1. Ooops did not do something correct no Speed test came up in last post
  2. Speed Test I think it is left open not set to Blast pro Must have open access not set to blast Pro speeds. Even Xfinity "Suggested test" Is extremely high on download, but sadly upload is at 12Mbps still
  3. To get all up to speed I have Xfinity Blast Pro ( Supposedly 150 Mbps/12 Mbps) Using the Cisco DPC 3941 Wireless gateway. When I look at my personal connection Data I see I am getting 300 Mbps but what I have found is after say a few days my speed drops (via online testing) down to 20-30 Mbps even though my connection speed to the gateway remains at 300 Mbps. this leads me to believe that the Gateway is having issues on the download side. I forgot to mention my upload speed stays really consistent between 11.5 and 12.5 Mbps. Any Ideas what causes this? as soon as I do a Complete Gateway Reset it goes back to close to full speed but in like 2 days I am back to Slug Speed.
  4. Sweet, most I ever got was a Huge argument with a tech once that I almost knocked out, (over using their speed test and Testmynet) but that was quite a while ago and a $20 credit when tech failed to show up to deliver my Wireless Gateway. Finally (though they try to claim their tests are more accurate) they have realized that the results from one test to the other mean squat when I can show results from testmy.net going back shoot what 7 years now 7 years and 3 months lol when I have that kind of data to compare when I had speed increases, they had hardware issues or network issues they really have no legitimate reason to argue what test I use. when I show last month all test results average say 80 Mbps download and now I get 25Mbps download there is a issue even if their lame tests show me getting 100 Mbps which so funny that those same tests show a 180Mbps download speed when my speed tier is capped at 150Mbps I know them enough to know they will not give away an extra Mbps nor even cover the 10-20% loss to make end user actual speed match speed tier. They could actually cap speed at say 180 Mbps then at testing computer would actual be receiving that 150 Mbps or cap whatever tier 20% higher then advertised. (now I am just tossing #'s and percentage I do not know for fact these are 100% accurate just to be used as examples) I have seen upload speed drop so much it hinders download harshly. I wonder why when Xfinity upgraded download speed from 50-100-150 Mbps they never really did squat with upload. it has stayed around 10 Mbps for eons. I did hear it was due to adding 4 more channels to upload would put them in the 88Mhz range which has huge amount of noise etc. due to radio. For instance on my new gateway I have 16 Channels for downstream but only 4 for upstream while the gateway is capable of 24 channels down and 8 up.
  5. Well I think I found why my test results seem to be Sucking Huge.. I was watching my wireless connection and noticed when running a test my wireless connection speed drops from anywhere from 300-240 Mbps down to around 100-120 Mbps SO I assume if my wireless connection speed is at 100Mbps no matter what my speed tier I have from the ISP there is no way I can expect to get results above 90% of what my Wireless speed is. That would explain I assume why even though my speed tier is 150Mbps I am getting results around 70Mbps etc.
  6. Thanks, As far as best linear tests I think it has improved but it is so inconsistent it 's ridiculous. I have tries the Mercury which most times seems pretty good, multithread which seems to act as spastic as linear I may do that go get a different modem to see what may be going on. Oh one thing I did forget (if It could possibly have impact) December we received like 17" rain about 4X our average with a crap load coming down on a couple specific days my line is underground and they put a black splice thingy in the line about 2 feet from house which makes 3/4 of this splice box underground where water just happens to pool up I think I may go look at the main connection box which is only about 20 feet from house and make sure nothing in there is funky. The cable connection box has been left unlockable since 2002 when I moved in here and they seem to careless if it is secure or not funny the green tube cover just gets pushed into ground there is actually nothing they could lock it down with anyway inner metal plate and brackets are no where to be found just the block the cables split off from lol
  7. well the Cisco CP 3939 I believe, they call it I know 3939 it is the Gateway allows use of Phone and Internet along with the MOCA I think they actually have a Gateway 3 (oh ya the cisco was called Gateway 2) I am not sure what the newer one is or how much better it is just remembered that when you asked about the modem I am using
  8. So where should I now post to complain, get ideas as to WTF is up with my speeds lately? I am all over the place, supposedly xfincrudty (aka (crapcast) upgraded my speed from 105 to 150 but I cannot get that speed nor do I think 20% and to make matters wors I jump from say 80 to 50 to possibly 120 then back to 50. I seem to do better with the multi thread or mercury tests then linear. I have tried all I can think of changing you name it in the TCP Optimizer. I even broke out the old Ethernet cable and strung it to hardwired me into the gateway and still Amazingly fast and consistently non repeatable speed results I am even up at 3 AM PST to see if my neighbors could be the issue. Next I was thinking about disconnecting all the other cables from node and see if I alone connected has any bearing on my speeds?? Or is that illegal to disconnect them for a few min to test?? I mean who is up at 3 AM besides me anyway right?
  9. LOL I thought I was getting this great speed, Then I found this email sent 10-30-15 stating that supposedly Comcast (kindness of their hearts) decided to upgrade my speed from 105 to 150 Mbps So actually my test results Suck A&& I have no Idea what the percentage but add 45 Mbps to the equation and the % has to drop faster then Obama's credibility
  10. No it is not working , says page cannot load, I also cannot seem to find where the ISP specific forums are like Comcast or Century Link or say Time warner etc.
  11. Thanks I thought so , but I have to keep Comcast/ xfinity honest as I have had them let stuff slide and without complaining they would of just let it go that way until who knows when.
  12. I cannot remember if this 88.95% of advertised speed is a good # to have when testing. I seem to think if it was 90% or around there that was considered good but I am not positive so I wanted to ask. I am supposedly on a 105 Xfinity tier or Blast as they call it and I recently have been close to 90% of that some times over some under but close
  13. Seems lately to be working correctly. Keeps fingers crossed it continues
  14. Paying for 105 Mbps speed and today was only reaching about 25 Mbps was frustrating , nice to see the speed back whee it should be http://testmy.net/db/WVELDrwPc.E37PzXYqh
  15. Well maybe all the Notifying Google of the "Aw Snap" BS worked as I finally was able to run a combined test and did not get that annoying message just a few seconds ago.
