  1. Automatic tests not repeating?

    Fool around and get to know the settings in the auto test. There are many different variables you can use. Find the most frequent settings, and leave the tab in the browser open. Post back and let us know how things went.
  2. Linux vs. Windows speed

    To add for whoever may come across this in the future, please never rush into updating the kernel for your needs / requirements, you could end up with a completely broken system, or at the least unable to boot.
  3. Linux vs. Windows speed

    Run on the mint box command line: uname -r This will print the kernel version. You may be fluent with this, not something I would know so please excuse me if so. The latest kernel; right now is 4.5.0 [edit] I'll take a stab at it and say the machine is running a 3.13.x variant
  4. Linux vs. Windows speed

    Sounds as if you'll need to update the kernel on the effected machines. What versions of Linux are you using?
  5. Automated power cycle modem/ router wth?

    "Monit" will do the same thing , with services. Just gets me at how literally dis connected people are getting. Sorry man, but were not heading into a very individually productive directions here, overall. As a people. :shrugs:
  6. Difference Between Speed Test Sites?

    Considering so many sites are pulling from even countless resources, your point is well taken. Day to day or minute by minute would be something a user gets a feel for after a time, for instance we get used to seeing a pageload depending n the site, at a certain speed, when there is an issue with one or more of the resources the site relies on, we notice that. This is where can assist, by sector, what might be the issue. For instance if test results are all coming out low, this would lead us closer to home, or the ISP, if tests on servers one side of the country are low but not the other, this would lead us to a peering issue. Same for an overseas test.
  7. I would bet that you do
  8. WIFI

    Maybe I'm not understanding the question, as there would likely be millions if not hundreds of millions of points. Could you refine your question a little? Thanks.
  9. Hello!

    What is happening there, users are placed in order of how many tests have been taken and how high or not their score is. For instance, I could test and get a score between 500-750Mbps, from one tests, and I would be placed towards the top if not the top, however after someone else gets results of 300 Mbps several times, they will overtake my placement. I did not write it, but it appears to be weighted on the two or three factors in some manner, @CA3LE would be the person to get details from , and straighten out my understanding as well.

  12. I don't understand the results.

    "Simple, to make sure you're getting what you pay for. This speed test is useful if you feel a connection slow down or want to see how your Internet is performing. This isn't like any other broadband speed test. TestMy's proprietary method is proven to help identify issues other speed tests fail to detect. The TMN Speed Test shows your true speed."

  14. Difference Between Speed Test Sites?

    Actually it's the inverse. The result you get at will correlate along side the performance you will see when accessing data in the same area as the test is run.
  15. Difference Between Speed Test Sites?

    Test results will vary organically. Considering the net is made up of many branches, peering of the ISP and peers, availability of resources depending on time of day, broader usage (popularity), more or less the network density at the time the test is taken. And likely several million other possible reasons.
