    I pay Virgin Media £140 a month for TV VIP , including 2 X V6 boxes; land line and Broadband.  My headline download speed is 300Mb but I always get well over that.  With Speedtest.net I get 380Mb.

    Wow! Those are the almost exact speeds I was getting with AT&T here in Florida paying $46 a month. Pretty slow & pretty expensive. I switched to Comcast & now pay $49 a month and have been getting 66.9/5.6 consistently with spikes of 75(depending on time of day). Hopefully the merger you speak of will make a big difference. Good Luck!

    Pgoodwin1 reacted to Sean in cleaning a pc with air compressor   
    As ridiculous as it sounds, most computer components such as the motherboard, PSU and certain expansion cards can survive a full dishwasher cycle.  Obviously that's not how I recommend cleaning a PC.
     
    The following 8-year old video is an example.  The internals were covered in cigarette smoke residue, so he decided to dismantle the components and put them through the dish washer, with the exception of the case, battery and the hard disk. 
     
     
    I also enjoy watching videos on old hardware such as restoration videos.  I have come ones where such hobbyists put components through a dishwasher cycle to clean extensive debris build-up from being left for 10+ years in storage such as a dusty shed.
     
    As long as no moisture remains when the PC is powered up, it should be fine.  I generally clean my PC with an air duster, which is basically an aerosol can filled with propellant gas.  Here in Ireland, humidity is usually on the high side, e.g. I run a dehumidifier to keep the indoor level below 60%.
     
    The only component I may wash is the keyboard.  I have a Corsair Cherry Red Mechanical keyboard that I accidentally knocked a glass of cider on.  I immediately unplugged it, tried wiping off what I could and let it dry.  Once dry, many of the letters were sticking.  When I started removing the keys to try cleaning below, I realised the mechanical switches were jamming.
     
    With what appeared to be a ruined keyboard that I only purchased a few months before the incident, I figured I'll try giving it a bath as we don't have a dishwasher.  I partially filled a wide container with water from our dehumidifier (since it's effectively distilled), soaked the keyboard and pushed each key multiples times to force water through the switches.  I left it to dry for about a week.  It's fully functional again, all keys work and no sticking or other issue since.

    Pgoodwin1 reacted to mudmanc4 in Intermittent Drop Out   
    @Hypopyon, If this were myself, I would run the auto test, example for a two hour movie scenario:
     
     

     
    This test will run for 125 minutes, once every five minutes, testing upload and download minimum 1MB per test run, 'nfw' is selected to reserve bandwidth as were simply getting as close to a connectivity test as we can. (This means the tests will not forward to a larger test size until the test takes seven seconds.  
     
    Although I'm not up on the TTL (how long the test server will wait for a response before giving up) therefore the two hour test every five minutes, if your getting eight droputs per movie, you should catch several, in theory.
     
    Though in your case, I might be running wireshark , (packet capture) to view the responses during the loss, which can be a bit overwhelming to learn.

    Pgoodwin1 reacted to CA3LE 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.

    @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.

    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.

    Pgoodwin1 reacted to CA3LE 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.

    Good to hear. Glad they got it worked out. Usually if you hound the ISP, after a while they do something. I'm convinced some of them have policies where they don't do anything for customers with these kind of problems until you call three or more times.
