    • I do have another question,  how to test our ISP ping,  or the lag we experience when connecting?  Unless i missed something,  I was unable to find that.  Makes me wonder why sometimes they go through 32 routers,  and other times over a 100.?  I'm not a streamer,  nor do I download huge MB of information or files,  so wouldn't think I was being throttled. Just hate feeling helpless and have to take whatever the ISP gives us.  We pay good money,  and they are making a nice junk of change,  we should able to get what we pay for.  Who has the authority to make these companies provide what they promise?
    • Well according to Spectrum,  we are supposed to get 100mbs down and about 10 up. My speeds have climbed to 89 since I ran TCP Optimizer. My biggest gripe was huge lag right in the middle of my games,  might as well not even log on to play with 132ping.  Normally is about 32.  I have made sure I have a good modem , Arris SB6183, and router, Netgear R6200v2,  keep my stuff up to date.  We wanted to go with the 200mps,  but the install was very expensive in my opinion.
    • What speed plan are you on for down/up ?
    • It kept crashing, at first it wasn't crashing tables but toward the end it was doing it every time.   Everything has been migrated over to a new server.  It feels correct now.   Sorry it took longer than it should have, I tried a direct copy of the mysql directory, which would have been faster but after starting mysql it kept having speed issues, as if it had no indexes.  Multiple attempts to repair and then I gave up and did it the slow, reliable way.  mysqldump and import.   This new MariaDB (mysql) server is only doing that one purpose for just the master databases.  The forum is on a different server... I think that helped a lot this time.  The forum is heavily integrated, it's integration can be toggled on and off but it's not ideal for me to do that.  Having the forum database on a different server minimized downtime and left this line of communication open.   Before the server running MariaDB had other tasks to deal with.  Not that it couldn't handle it... what I feel like it did is overcomplicated the ground floor to the point that it made it hard to determine the source of this issue.  Many different software packages updating... complicates things.  Sure, you can dig into logs and eventually fix it... but I feel at that point it's time to refresh and learn from mistakes.   So this server is running a super simple MariaDB only install.   Please let me know if you see anything out of place or not working.
    • I have been here a while,  but haven't posted before.  I have Charter/Spectrum for my ISP.  Lately my speeds have been dropping in the evening making it impossible to play any of my online games,  very frustrating. I didn't really want to call my ISP and hear all the garbage they give out to make it look like the problem is with my equipment or on my end of the connection.  I finally installed the TCP Optimizer,  I know I should have done this a long time ago.  Now my Test.My.net results are 89.6mps from the 23.1mps I was getting before this. I might also add that AT&T has just run a fiber line behind my home a few months ago and is offering a faster connection IF you bundle.  I would think Spectrum would get their act together and make sure their speeds were more consistent so as to keep the customers they have . Perhaps they could care less.  Anyway thanks for the great program and all the good stuff here at Test.My.net
