  4. I just spotted my Auto speed test that was well underway suddenly switched itself from London GB to Dallas Tx, so I stopped the test sequence and pressed the Test Servers link, but London GB was missing from the list of available Speed Test Servers. While preparing to post this new topic I saw London GB return to the list, which I could select it as my new Default, and I have now restarted my Auto test sequence. But why did it disappear and why did my default get changed? I‘ve seen my default switch before, happened a few days back. If the server went down momentarily then why not either fail the test and try again later, or temporarily switch the ‘Test server of choice’ to an alternative server but then switch back when the default is available again? Allow us to select the alternate or pre-define it, whatever.

    Divorce because of smoking

    Hey CA3LE, Look up Michael Mosley v E-Cigs .. i watched it the other day. You should be able to find a video to watch on the net. The results were interesting. He even took up vaping to see how it affected a non smoker.

    My huges net sucks

    I foolishly let DISH talk me into switching from DISH Internet to Hughes Net back in December. DISH claimed HN was way faster and would be a much better fit for out situation. We are in a rural setting and satellite is our only option for internet service. I knew right away it was a bad idea but assumed it would just take DISH awhile to smooth out the bugs as it did with their Hopper service. Also I had other things going on. Finally the end of May I called in, and spent the next four hours going back and forth between DISH and HN. It's now been almost seven weeks of back and forth with no end in site. I've been waiting all day for a return call that was promised to be within 24-48 hours last Friday by a customer support who also said he would call back Monday to follow up. Neither happened so yesterday I called in and the support person finally found the notes (which took some time even though I provided the case number I was given) and said it showed advanced tech support would be calling me today. It's now 4:28 pm and no call yet. Not impressed. I think my next step will be to put everything in writing and send to DISH Corporate, HN Corporate, Better Business Bureau and the State Attorney General's Office. I'm paying a lot of money for two services that are not providing the caliber of service promised and are apparently not interested in resolving the issue. Maybe if others did the same they would start paying attention to their consumers and provide the service and support they claim to have.

    Divorce because of smoking

    But I don't want to divorce him. But he's like a crazy now. Don't understand what's going on.

    Divorce because of smoking

    Some thoughts for you to ponder Marriage is a balance, a balance of {place everything here you can think of + a billion more 'things = issues" that can and will come up} Speaking with 22+ years of it under my belt if that lends any credibility. You make so many choices throughout the day, for yourself and those you care about, so in marriage, the choice is no longer simply about you, as you are now two {unless you've gone and made more mini you's} then it's about all of you. As far as 'analogs' go, or cigs, I quit the same day I took my first vape. after a pack a day, never wanted to after that. Tried the next morning and just didn't want to anymore. Mind you there was for me, another chemical I found was not in an ecig, that was in the cigarette , which I had to overcome. That was roughly ten years ago, or so. No one can make that decision for you, no matter the pressure, do it for you. Most importantly, be happy.

    Divorce because of smoking

    You were smoking before you were married, he married a smoker. If he wants to divorce you over something like that, you should quit smoking and then divorce HIM. What a terrorist. Holding divorce over your head. For smoking... and he met you as a smoker. "Now that I've quit smoking, I feel like a new woman! I'm ready to give you that divorce you were talking about." Seriously though, smoking takes 3 days to quit, that's it. 3 days of being on edge and irritable but you can do it. Personally, I love smoking. I still allow myself occasional cigarettes and puff on Mark10's in between... I go for months without smoking a real cigarette. First one after a while always tastes terrible but I still love it. I can enjoy a pack every now and then, finish it and be fine having a few drags off my Mark10's after. Trading one addiction for another, yes... like I said, I love smoking. E-Cig's don't make me feel like crap... if I have to smoke I feel that I'm much healthier using ecigs. When I smoked regular cigarettes on a regular basis I had pre-hypertension... my blood pressure is perfect now. I don't believe that Nicotine is the enemy here. It's everything else that comes with combustion.

    So my internet is slow, What can you do about it?

    Hello, I'm also here for a few years. but registered only today. I have approximately the same Internet as you. Not always. Sometimes it's quite good, I can watch films and so on, but sometimes I can't even load a needed page🙁
  14. Hi there. Sorry if I write not in the right place. I read this forum quite often but never dare to write here. But now it's time, as I need help and know that there are enough people to receive advice from someone. I'm married for 4 years right now. I'm smoking. Yes, it's not the best thing to tell about, but it's true. I was smoking long before marriage. And my boyfriend (now husband) knew about that and had no objections as we talked not once about that. I would never give it up if someone told me. It should be my own decision and only then it will work. So he came from work yesterday and claimed that I have to give that up. For people who smoke will be easy to understand my impression from that. I thought it was not serious as I'm smoking many years. But he was serious! He said or I give up smoking or we divorce. Is that normal? How can a person say like that after 4 years of marriage? I was shocked of course. I was not ready for that and that was not my decision. But his. And why? Because someone of his friends saw me smoking and said that it was awful. Of course. But it's not new for my husband. He knew what he took. So what should I do now? I don't want to get divorced because of such a stupid reason. I started googling it. Then I thought maybe he'd decided that we should already have a child. Maybe then I should really think about quitting smoking. Was reading on Vapingdaily different articles about giving up smoking. Lists of reasons how to persuade oneself to quit it. Is it worth to try? Maybe there is someone who already gave up smoking. I've also read about electronic cigarettes. Want to try. Is that really helpful? Would be grateful for your replies. Thanks

    My huges net sucks

    You should check what your speed is hard wired to determine whether 30Mbps is your max. You won't get 70Mbps with HughesNet. Max is in the high 40s.

    My huges net sucks

    Hi, Even in same room with full signals its not crossing 30mbps and in bed room it wont cross 20mbps . Mobile is fine but laptop is issue as i do downloads ans uploards of software . i am developer so looking of around 70mbps in min. I might be able to wire upto bed room and keep another wireless access point but still speed wont be going more then 30mbps as this is same speed which i am getting even in lounge where router is placed

    Wireless router - 50+ clients - devices

    The router can route many more than 50 devices if it is decent. The issue is the radio in consumer quality routers cannot effectively handle more than a limited number of devices if they consume any significant bandwidth. If you go to any commercial facility with a lot of users they all rely upon a series of well positioned APs to provide sufficient radios to support the needed connection load. Your biggest problem would be using only 2.4 GHz in a confined area would limit you to three channels (1, 6, and 11) or you would have interference issues that would adversely impact overall performance for users. Perhaps if you share more information on exactly what you are doing it would help. Why only use 2.4GHz? Almost all modern devices also support 5GHz and at the short range you describe that would work well with the many users in a confined area as there are more channels to use

    Who testmy.net is

    I'll work on a page that cites examples for you. They're here, just not compiled nicely for you. I just go off of what many people tell me. There are hundreds of stories (just that I've heard) of people who test perfectly fine using other speed tests and testmy.net reports the correct... much lower number. They email me, often by starting out BLAMING testmy.net. I tell them to trust the results and they usually email me back later, "testmy.net was right." I get blamed whenever someone is slow. The other speed tests misrepresent the numbers so people think I'M the one who's wrong because I'm the outlier. Just because the majority comes to the same answer doesn't mean they do it right. --- testmy.net is often an outlier because it's a real test. And instead of focusing on what they're not doing right... how about we all just use TestMy.net and call it a day?!?! 🤣 I just posted one from the other day to a topic with some other examples I've shared in the past. There are some in other topics in the FAQ / Ask TMN forum When you're having issues and REALLY need testmy.net... that's when it works best and shows how it's truly proprietary. Why anyone uses anything other than TMN with evidence that the others fail when needed the most... makes no sense. Fact is, people just don't know. I try not to be all in your face with the ads. Large portions of the site are purposely ad free (like the forum) and I'm also showing no ads to mobile users.
  19. Is your speedtest working? Hi John, I'm testing normally... everything looks good on my end. When there are issues... my email lights up with user and server generated emails. Looking at https://testmy.net/live and filtering only the server you're using (GB) and I see many people recently posting faster speed. You could have specific routing issues. Also, some issues are more apparent in TestMy.net's results versus other speed tests out there. The most popular speed tests out there aren't giving you a full picture. They combine threads and ignore parts of the result. They are made to benefit the ISP. You can try https://testmy.net/mirror to try other servers or https://testmy.net/multithread to multithread the test. I would also try a different browser. Looks like you used Chrome 67 last, I love Chrome (and that's almost the latest version) but you could still have a problem with it. Try testing with Firefox and see if there's any difference. If there is a big difference, I would go into Chrome settings and reset the browser to default. I've seen bad cable modems show degraded speed on TestMy.net and show normal full speed on other speed tests. This is a very old topic but it's still true today. Same story, different day. Trust the results. My test and servers are the same as always. - Damon - TestMy.net Hi John, Make sure you spread the word. You saw TestMy.net totally in action. Most people have no idea that there is such a difference in internet speed tests. Heck, I had to be told at first by my users because I don't look at what the other speed tests are doing. I don't fully understand all the reasons why TMN seems to detect issues when others tests don't. It just does. In my opinion, after witnessing what you did... it's a wonder why more people don't use TestMy.net. But they don't. I'm coming out with a new version very soon. I've been in private beta testing for a while and will be releasing it to a wider audience. If you'd like to test it early go to the topic below and vote yes... The topic is from the previous beta, those members carry over to the new beta when it's announced. Probably in the next two weeks. As I said, trust the results. - Damon

    Who testmy.net is

    Thanks for your reply. I just didn't see any ads to know who supports the test. Still you claim "proprietary method is proven to help identify issues other speed tests fail to detect." without telling up what issues it helps me identify. Can I really find info on a propriety method? It just sounds vague and generalized. All that aside, I do find testmy.net to be one of the more reliable "speed test" sites I use. THANK YOU for all the work you have put into it. DJ

    Who testmy.net is

    ...not sure, never been there before. 🤣 Hi DJ, Welcome to testmy.net! Yes, that's all still accurate. Millions of people still regularly use TMN, only a small percentage are members. An even smaller percentage of members actually use the forums here. Before facebook, these forums were much more popular. To legitimize any of my statements all you have to do is search the internet. I feel that other people have scrutinized and legitimized what I'm doing over the years, my methodology and core principals never change. Many have put TMN under a microscope. In my development I put it under a microscope too. Maybe I should post more of those findings but if I focused my time on that... it would have to come from somewhere. I think it's better left said by other people. Funding comes from generous support from viewers like you... just kidding, PBS quote. I have ads. Maybe one day I won't have to. TestMy.net has always been developed and maintained by one person.

    Who testmy.net is

    I sent a message to the site administrator with a link to this post
  23. An idea, an easy to find link for an "about" page. Who's behind TMN. Where does the funding come from? It's stated TMN uses a "proprietary method", developed by who? Which "is proven to help identify issues ", could we see theses results (to legitimize the statement)? Which issues does it identify? The home page reads ..."see why millions of consumers choose TestMy.net", sure not all of them create an account - the tens-of-thousands of posts in the forums appear months old, if not 5 to 10 years old. Is that still accurate? DJ

    Dropped tests

    OK
  25. BOR15

    2 graphs

    OK on closer inspection i think i worked out the top graph. It is the analysis of the download to see how consistent the actual speed of the download is.
  26. BOR15

    2 graphs

    When you look at My results, you get 1 graph. But when you are doing an auto test, you see 2 graphs. Can someone explain the top graph please
  27. BOR15

    Dropped tests

    thank you .. When the site went down, my browser actually crashed with a site error and didn't continue testing. The dropped tests i was referring to are random and have been explained as duplicate ID so were not logged.

    Dropped tests

    There was a site problem. Should be OK now id suggest deleting those points
  30. BOR15

    Dropped tests

    thats cool .. was asking to see if it was something maybe at my end. this is a quick screen grab of why im testing. It is the last 24 hours. I have stable speeds of 47Mbps and then after my 1830 test i decline to 1.6 at 2045 then back to full at 2315 ... the ISP, TPG in Australia, states an evening speed of 45Mbps
