  3. Been going crazy trying to figure out why the test is so much slower here than everywhere else. I know that here it is a linear test and other sites will skew the numbers/closer servers to beef them up a bit but the difference seems too high for everything to be ok. I've gone through the troubleshooting guides everywhere with no luck. Here are some results from just now. Testmynet GoogleFiber speedtest.net AT&Ts speed test (my ISP) shows 900+ ... lol. So any advice for me or is it time to call my ISP ? Thanks
  4. So is it your suggestion to avoid those things in order to "improve WiFi connectivity even with internet basic plans", or are you asking for help to improve your "WiFi connectivity"? *3rd party devices/routers Keep in mind that, if one does not have a proprietary WiFi router from their plan provider they must connect a 3rd party router in order to utilize WiFi. *movie apps that require 3 to 6 Mbps internet speed If one's provider doesn't supply adequate speed they won't be able to stream movies, regardless of a WiFi or LAN connection. *simultaneous use of wifi from 6 or more devices Wholeheartedly agree, as the speed will be divided between devices, and not necessarily evenly. And if using the 2.4Ghz band, the WiFi itself could be a choke point, depending on the plan's speed. * unmindful of radio frequencies (i.e. 2.4ghz/5ghz) or lack of info as its reach among others With the 5Ghz band this is normally not an issue, though its range is considerably less than the 2.4Ghz band.
  5. Subscribers tend to 'overuse' their wifi connectivity though their plans are internet basic by using the following: *3rd party devices/routers *movie apps that require 3 to 6 Mbps internet speed *simultaneous use of wifi from 6 or more devices * unmindful of radio frequencies (i.e. 2.4ghz/5ghz) or lack of info as its reach among others

    Won't stay signed in tonight...

    CA3LE, Actually, I just upgraded my desktop to W10 1809 (clean install) and installed Chrome anew. It seems to be fine now. It's likely that resetting it would have done the trick. Thanks for the advice. 🙂

    Hey Gabe, I primarily use Chrome myself and haven't had any issues on any of my machines. I would reset Chrome settings to default. There may be an extension or something causing issues. If you try that let me know if it helps.
  9. CA3LE, For some reason I keep having to sign in every time I come to the site tonight. If I don't sign in, but click on Download Test and select the 25MB test (size is arbitrary in this case), the page then automatically goes to choosing a server, but with me now being signed in. For some reason it seems to only be doing this in Chrome and not Firefox. I cleared the cache in Chrome but it's not making a difference. Just letting you know.

    Time zone options for TMN

    Argh, very strange on my side. I wiped all history and cookies, used a separate browser and even went incognito / private browsing but still shows it out by 1 hr. I’m wondering if there’s a cookie synced across my devices that is causing the issue. Hhhmmmmmmm.

    Time zone options for TMN

    Yes it is still wrong, should be GMT but showing GMT+1 Firefox I tried clearing the browser testmy.net cookie entries but still the same. Opened avast browser and run test, this was correct on GMT Back to firefox, rerun still in error. Cleared cookies for testmy.net again. This time I had a different message regarding page reloading. Retried the test and now correct GMT time. It was probably the cookies and I just did not clear them correctly the first time.

    Thanks, Yeah, logged out and cleared cookies. Will try a different browser that I’ve not used before. Ronan

    Are you still having this issue? If you clear your browser cookies it will force reset your timezone. It's supposed to update that automatically. It's showing the correct time for me and I also have DST. I'll look at the code in case there's a mistake.

    Great! Thanks, again, for your very helpful responses.

    Not right now but I think I can make some modifications to make it work the way you need. I actually already took a note to look into that after your first post. Give me a little while to mess around with it and I'll get back to this thread soon.

    Auto test not running

    Thanks for your quick and thorough support. I didn't realize I had to keep the computer running continuously, in order for Auto Test to work. I appreciate your guide for how to keep my computer running. Is there any option to have Auto Tests run without keeping my computer on continuously? I can ensure the computer is on when the test is scheduled, but I'm not in a situation where I can keep my computer on continuously.

    Auto test not running

    If your computer was put to sleep overnight and then you turned it back on this morning the timing mechanism was paused while your computer was asleep. Try running an auto test on a lower interval (like 15 minutes) so you can get a feel for how it runs. Then turn it up to your desired 12 hour interval... just make sure your computer is set to stay awake. The display and drives can sleep, screensaver is fine... the browser window doesn't even need to be in focus or visible. But if the computer goes to sleep or hibernation... the auto test won't work. Here's instructions from Western Digital on how to change those settings. This is the first thing I change on a new computer. Looks like you're running Windows 10... https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=3875#win10 If you're using a laptop make sure you're plugged in during testing and change the power management settings back when you're done otherwise your battery will drain quicker. Let me know if this helps.

    Auto test not running

    I turned on my computer about 8:45 AM and the auto test was scheduled for 9:00 AM. Is 15 minutes enough lead time? Or do I need to turn it on earlier?

    Auto test not running

    First, thank you. Is it possible that your computer fell asleep? Make sure you change your power management settings to keep your computer awake during the test.

    Auto test not running

    TestMy.net is a great service. Last night I setup Auto Test. I set it to run every 12 hours. The first test ran last night at 9:00 PM. I thought it would run again this morning at 9:00 AM. However, when I go to My Results, I don't see any tests that have ran this morning. (It's about 10:30 AM now.)

    No subforums for fixed wireless?

    Going by the database log, it looks like the majority of the high test results (~54Mbps down) are with the same connection ID. This could be someone that is connected to a wireless mast with very few other customers and running a repeat scheduled test. There haven't been many discussions here about fixed wireless Internet, which is likely why there is no sub-forum here. If you have 4G LTE coverage with any cellular provider, see if that provider offers mobile broadband with 4G LTE connectivity. The latency will be similar to fixed wireless and the monthly caps are generally much better than satellite. For example, here in Ireland all three major mobile providers (Eir, Three and Vodafone) offer 4G based broadband packages with monthly caps of between 60GB and 750GB. Like fixed wireless, the speed will depend on the network load of the nearest 4G cell and the signal strength. The price will depend on the monthly cap. My own home broadband is 4G based as my only other options are DSL (4Mbps max), satellite and a wireless provider I had terrible experience with. I usually get around 20 to 30Mbps with the 4G service as there is not much load on the Three cell in my area.
