    belkin router

    Ok this may get confusing, so bear with me. I see two diffrent ways to login to my router, one is.......Type http://routerlogin.net but the other one is,http://192.168.2.1, now I used the first one, updated the router, set my pass word, bla bla bla, then just for the heck of it I tried the 192.168 one. Now the page does look diffrent, says I need to update my router again. Ok, so which one do I use??
  6. Hello, to preface this post I'd like to say I work as a legal videographer for a living, I regularly process and upload video to attorneys offices and court reporting firms so I take the quality of my net speed very seriously as it's part of my business and living. Alternatively I also casually game and stream to twitch Tv for fun so I also care about my net quality from a hobbyist standpoint as well. I recently moved and installed new internet at my place of residence and have been getting some results that I need a further opinion on. One of my computers is getting way below my other computers net speeds, despite the fact they are side by side, and both hard wired into my net modem. Target speed should be around 150Mbs download and 10mbs upload from comcast. I live in northern California. (the images below are all different test results I got are ONLY from the problem computer, the other computer I have next to it is achieving high speeds, even with server swaps and multiple tests) I also used speedOf.me as well to double check results. I keep seeing a common number of 38ish MBs where my download is locked at. I had issues with this computer like this in the past but the problem only appeared occasionally, but since I just invested in a brand new net setup, in a new location, (thinking the issue might randomly fix itself but didn't) I really wanted to lock down why my other computer is having these huge bottlenecks in netspeed. Again, my other computer has no issues whatsoever but the only difference mainly being is my OS. The problem computer uses windows 7 while the other uses Windows 10 ( I keep these separate on purpose). Both computers have high end hardware and are only a few years old. I have trouble shot different network settings and haven't achieved any improvements on the issue. Awhile ago the computer never had issues achieving high net speeds but there clearly are major outliers and discrepancies appearing when I run tests on the speed. I need some serious advice about how to go about fixing the issue.

    Dropped tests

    I am missing test results from an auto download test. I believe it is due to network issues on our side. Can you tell me how many times the test will fall to connect before it cancels itself? Does the auto test cancel itself?

    Very big difference between testmynet vs speedtest

    The 6 MB/sec is megabytes per second. The roughly 48 Mbps from TestMy and Speedtest is megabits per second. There are 8 bits per byte, so the 6 MB/sec is the same as 48 Mbps. I notice that your test results in Results over the past week has quite a few points between 40 and 50 Mbps, with a few points here and there between 10 and 25. Pretty big variation but not uncommon on the internet these days.

    220 is about as high as I’ve ever seen on our Spectrum 200/10 Plan.So it looks like you’re there.
  12. Hello! I am from Turkey,im using 50mbps DL and 5 mbps up cable internet.Whenever I test my internet on speedtest i get result like this.The thing is whenever i download anything from steam my download speed is 5,5-6,0 mb but why there is a big difference between these? I had a take look on forum in order to understand the difference between testmynet and speedtest and everybody i saw,they were having the same thing like i do now.Which one of them showing the real internet speed that i am using?Sometimes testmynet is showing like 4/2 of my internet speed.

    Yes, this PC is old , but it still works well as long as I don't have to fight Microsoft and or Charter Spectrum . I finally figured out that this USB Ethernet adapter was connected incorrectly , because in the printed instructions , it stated to connect to the modem , so I called the Mfg and they said connect to the PC cable going to the router and WOW this thing wants to run away on me . I am subscribed to 200Mbps internet speed , but when I run various speed test's now I have reached up to 220 on this 1Gbit adapter , is this legit or should I actually run higher ? Thank You
  14. Has anyone noticed the information in the windows 10 network properties being incorrect? I just got a new ASUS USB AC-68 adapter and in the properties it shows Link speed (Receive/Transmit): 54/1300 (Mbps) yet when I do speed tests either Via here on Via Xfinity just to have a comparison I am getting over 200 Mbps download speed which would be impossible if I truly were connected at 54 Mbps receive speed. technically the USB adapter should be 1300/1300 (Mbps) Just curious if anyone else noticed that. Now funny thing when I connect via ethernet it shows correct info as 1000/1000 (Mbps) and with my factory Wifi it shows 300/300 (Mbps) It only reads funny with the ASUS AC-68 oh and the ASUS AC-53 I bought for girlfriends computer yet when testing it downloads in the 200 + (Mbps) range.
  15. How many others are frustrated with the super slow download speeds with Gen5? I am getting download speeds less than 1.0 Mbps and upload speeds of 2.95 Mbps in the evening. Their tech/customer service gives me the run around and tells me "advanced techs" is working on it and will call me. Yes they have called me but only during the day when I have decent speeds, then tell me I should call when y speeds are down which I have done over & over & over & over!!!! Get the picture??? Anyone else having the same issues and how can we file a class action lawsuit against them for false advertisement about their FAST internet speeds?

    you have a Pavillion 500a6? That's from 2013? In computer terms, that's pretty old. According to the specs https://support.hp.com/ie-en/document/c03786042 you have a 100Mbps ethernet adapter. Why can't you add a gigabit ethernet port? It's 5 years old so warranty is long gone, and it's a desktop, so it is made to be extended. If you have a recent smartphone or tablet, there's a good chance it's faster than your PC in all aspects, and you can just run the test from that. If your ISP says you get 200MBps that means their modem probable has WiFi to support that.

    retest giving very different speeds

    Clearing cache won't make a difference, it is smart enough. Try running the auto test (one of the menu options) for a day, and see what kind of results you get. It could be that your ISP oversubscribed your connection, so that too many people are using the same limited bandwidth. That would show as fast speed in the early morning and a crawl in the evening.

    retest giving very different speeds

    Could try clearing your cache before each test.
  19. Been a while since i posted a speed test. Very long story short, after 12+ years with Verizon/Frontier, i called them to find out what the best they could do for me on getting some more speed. , for the least amount of money. They tried some low ball offers at first ( i was currently on the 150/150 plan) it wasn't happening. I asked about their 500 plan, they said it would be an extra $200 a month! 😨 & my area doesn't qualify for that speed. I told them their out there GD mind. So they offered the 300/300 package for an extra $150 a month, and i politely declined. Told them there are other competitors offering Gigabit speeds for far FAR less than were paying monthly. Somehow she (the rep) was able to work some magic and somehow got the 500 plan approved, and only $50 more a month. After install i can see why they didn't offer it 😂 she was really struggling to pull anything more than 300/200. so after 3 weeks of fanagalin they finally for it right. Had to literally find a near empty node to stick me on. The following results are from MANY major ISP's, Google , and various speed tests,& locations. testMy hates me, it always has and always will. No logical explanation why, nor rhyme or reason. Single thread, multi thread doesn't matter. Since 2004 , just a hater. 🤣

    World results

    @CA3LE Just a heads up - if you do some work on the Database. There’s some glitches in the world results full listing behavior. if you select “Download Speed” to sort,, page 1 comes up sorted. If you go to page 2, it’s no longer sorted by download speed. If you choose to sort on download speed on page 2, it jumps back to page 1. Also, it looks like you should be able to sort on increasing download speed by selecting download, but it won’t change from the increasing.dorection. i checked the beta version, it’s different - doesn’t have the tabs, but the sorting has the same issue

    World results

    Hi Hachani! Thanks for being a frequent user. Sorry, there isn't a full country rank listed right now. I hope to make things easier to navigate in the next version. Although, it is possible to query that right now... just have to know the trick. I actually had to look at the code to remember how to do that. Go to https://testmy.net/list and type countrycode in the search field. Then set the minimum number of test to a higher number so only the more popular countries populate. To sort by download, upload or number of recent results click the column title. Sorting that way, the url in the browser ends up being https://testmy.net/rank/countrycode.down/2500 --- the base linking for this is supposed to be listed on the site. So you can just easily navigate to it. I didn't build that in there to be a secret, lol. I'm sorry that's not easily accessible. I'll work on that for you.

    New GEN 5 speeds 10 times slower

    I just replaced my Gen 4 modem (HT1100 modem) with the Gen 5 modem (HT2000W). My download speeds are about 10 times slower than my HT1100 modem. What gives? PS - I've been a Hughesnet BETA tester for 20 years off and on.

    Looks like using the Search / Full Losting tab on the world results page under Database will find whatever you need. Other than the fastest country averages listed on the Top Countries for Bandwicth tab, I don’t se a country ranking.

    Hello Testmy, I'm a frequent user of testmy.I usually find in " world results " the listing by countries.It is not the case now where everything (countries, cities and providers) is mixed up.Is there a listing for countries only ? Thank you

    pobrechamaco’s #1 comment above is a good place to start.not sure what year that PC is. I couldn’t find the Ethernet spec for that model online. Do you have a manual for the PC ? Is it a gigabit Ethernet? I found a spec on the wireless card - it’s 802.11 b/g/n. The “n” wireless should be fast enough to get you the 200 Mbps, but I don’t know if HP’s wireless in that PC operates near the max of 802.11 n. You shouldn’t have to get a wireless USB dongle if your Ethernet card is gigabit Ethernet. If you’re using a Spectrum modem / router, the router should be the limiting item. I have a 200 Mbps Spectrum plan and get an average of about 190 Mbps as tested here with wireless. Typically I’ll get 150-170 via Ethernet . - not on a PC though. And I’m not skilled with PCs (Mac guy). I know there are some skilled PC hardware guys on here that could help. Theres plenty of possible problems in software.

    Internet Speeds

    In general on your laptop or pc getting 200mbps throughtput is affected by the following: 1) The network port on either your computer/router is running at 10mbps or 100mbps instead of 1000mbps - if on a PC/laptop this is checked on the networking control panel or Network settings interface in Win8 or 10; if you can't set then check if it might be the ethernet cable needing to be of CAT6 type, and then look into a new gigabit 1000mbps network card for pc or a usb gigabit network dongle for the laptop (which also works for pc) 2) how you connect wirelessly to your wifi router - wifi theoreticallay is able to surpass 200 mbps but realistically never goes past 75% of the max rating because 'science', mainly radio interference. Wifi routers need to be placed appropiately in the home in a centralized location. You can purchase new wifi routers that operate in new frequencies like 5ghz 801.11AC and theoretically have upwards of 900mbps of throughtput but with reduced range because of the higher frequency. Your old router may have 300mbps 801.11N tecnology that requires a specific pairing with a compatible pc wifi card or usb dongle.

    And four years have already been gone, and most of users would agree this would be a real great addition too.

    I have an HP Pavilion 500a60 wired , another forum member recommended a USB adapter , since I have a proprietary designed system and HP will not allow additions/modifications . I have Charter Spectrum and my speed is 200Mbps subscribed . How is a USB adapter going to boost my speed ?

    What make and model PC do you have? Are you connecting via Ethernet or Wireless?
