  2. Hi, i just installed windows 7 pro 64bits on a new ssd, replacing the hdd i had. Just after, when i was watching some vídeos i noticed that the image was stuttering too much, went to task mngr and it shows that the CPU is always working, not to 100% but when i move a window or open a vídeo file it peaks. Also, after rebooting the pc, my keyboard died. I have tryed EVERYTHING, from drivers to try another pc... Same result, unknown device. It was working and nothing happened, just rebooted pc. Now i have installed the drivers that where missing but the thing still doesnt work and the stuttering keeps there. I alzó tryed reinstslling win7 on my old hdd, same result. Even unpluged GPU just to make sure it wssnt that, but didnt made a difference. I hace checked temperatures , drivers, ahci, tryed Ultra DMA 6, changing from 1 to 4 cpu's on msconfig... Everything, but cant get rid of the stuttering and CPU peaking. Please help!!!!

    Anddddd I'm back

    Wow, I never saw this topic until now. Looks like x_6985381 might still be testing... or someone else with the same IP 434421742943's Speed Test Results

    Hello there, I am a newbie. Nice to meet you
  9. Last week
  10. Would be great to have a small background app that runs Auto Test for long term tests and stats.

    Maintenance Window

    Multithread settings weren't sticking, thank you Sean for reporting this in PM. This has been resolved. May not look like it but lot changed on the backend. Queries are much faster. Especially for members with 10's of thousands or hundreds of thousands of results. Please let me know if you experience any issues or oddities.

    Maintenance Window

    Heads up, I will be performing master database maintenance tonight. Should start in about an hour 11PM my time GMT -7. 06:00 GMT this will extend for 3-4 hours. I'm expecting zero downtime during the procedure. You may notice during this time that you're missing the last 24 hours results, these results will appear back in the results once the process is complete. Thank you for your patience.

    Limited amount of data for tests

    Hi, That DL spread is pretty wild. I’m seeing the similar results but primarily when I change a parameter, like earlier I changed my QoS status from High to Ignore and the DL for that machine went from the 85 range to the 3 range! Are you doing the same? Testing parameters when you get those wild spreads. If not, do they occur at particular times of the day? Just curious. I’ve dealt with consistently good or consistently bad service but have always been able to track down the cause like when they installed a server in town because it was so bad and it really improved but suddenly a couple of years later it stunk again and my research showed that the server had disappeared! Trying to get them to admit it was infuriating and they never did but then I found a little trick to pay for the lowest tier but get around 110 Mbps DL which is unheard of where I live these days as the company was bought out by a large foreign enterprise which is in the 💲💲💲 business and sticks it to the technically clueless customers. What goes around comes around 🥳 🤫

    Frontier Internet Inconsistent

    Just got rid of cable and had internet speed upgraded from 30 mbps to 70 mbps. Since the upgrade, the internet has been very inconsistent with the connection dropping completely over wifi at times with ethernet getting speeds of 20-30 mbps. When tested on ookla the speed shows as 70-80 mbps so frontier says there is no issue and I would be charged to have someone come out even though this only happened once the changes were made. The internet at a max speed of 30mbps was much better than this now, and I'm at a loss about what the issue could be. I've run over 50 testmy.net speed tests with the average speed being around 10-20 mbps. The connection peaks at 70-80, but is unsustainable. Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Hi, What did ATT Tech Support say, especially since you are paying top-tier price? On another note, my question about 1 or 2 pieces relates to a change I made to my system that I don't believe can be made to yours but I'll check it out. It made a HUGE difference to mine, huge meaning going from around 20 mbps max download to 108 mbps max download. I pay for the minimum tier because testing over the years only gave me minimum regardless of the tier; I did one month tests of each tier. I'm curious to hear what your Support people told you! P P.S. It just came to mind that fiber does have some constraints, like bends in the cables, etc. since it's light through glass. Also, used to be that it required an additional interface (a big stumbling block to students at the university I taught/worked at circa 2000) but I doubt that is the case today....

    Why does speed vary so wildly?

    Long story short (can provide more details as needed) but I've switched ISP's twice in the past ~week. I started with Suddenlink 200Mbps cable, then had Centurylink 100Mbps fiber, and now I'm back to Suddenlink with 400Mbps cable (admittedly limited by old 8 channel SB6141 modem). While I had CL, I got a very steady ~100 Mbps download speed. I wound up cancelling the CL service though because it tended to drop out a lot during the day. Now since going back to SL, I get very different test results here at TMN specifically. Of course I get a solid ~250Mbps at speedtest.net. I've read enough around here to know what that does and doesn't necessarily mean. Attached a test I recently did, and at the bottom of the screen shot you can see the other test I did to different locations (Dallas, Denver, New York, Miami, San Francisco - I think). These were done on a desktop PC connected to a Netgear Nighthawk X6S wireless router via Cat5e. It's hard to believe results this low when I can easily stream 4K content over wifi immediately after doing these tests. Any thoughts?
  17. Pahoo, thank you for the response. I am not sure what you mean by your first question. I have ATT's top service for 1GB down and 1GB up on their fiber network but am experiencing slower speeds than when I was on TWC's 300MB down and 50MB up. The modem-router is a single piece of hardware and it is hardwired to my computer through a CAT 6 networking cable.
  18. Does ATT have a speed/cost hierarchy? Is the modem-router a single piece of hardware or 2 separate pieces connected by a cable? 🅿️

    Thank you for the clarifications and I apologize for my impatience 😟‼️ I was getting stressed out by several things and you were my only hope to get these issues resolved since my free router support ended 12/31/2018, which caught me off guard. I’m loving your site and hope to become an active member. Happy New Year, 🅿️ahoo

  23. When you’re watching movies wirelessly, and it’s buffering, are you on your laptop, or a smart TV, or a Roku - what kind of device are you watching on? What type of wireless ESS device are you using: is there a wireless router and a separate modem, or an all-in-one modem/router? How far is it from your laptop to the wireless modem-router? Are there a lot of walls between your viewing device and the wireless point?
  24. I'm a new hughesnet customer got installed about two weeks ago only because a friend told me that hughesnet is the way to go. Because I live out in the middle of nowhere I really had no choice so I gave it a try. Tonight while trying to stream netflix i noticed a constant buffering in my movies. Every minute my movie would buffer. Finally I had enough and called up hughesnet and told them about my slow speeds. The agent was very nice and had me log in to my account and perform some speed tests. He informed me they were very low. I was getting about 2mbps download and 2mbps upload. Then he had me plug my laptop into the hughesmodem with ethernet cable and my speeds shot up to 45 mbps download and 3 mbps upload. He told me someone would give me a call in about three days. I dont know why my wifi would be so slow. I literally only have my laptop connected to my hughesmodem and the speed are so slow i have to use my cell phone provider to get any kind of decenter internet access out here. What would cause my wifi speeds to be so slow??

    What am I testing?

    Welcome Pahoo Katawah! Sorry it's taken me so long to respond. The past week has been spent racking upgraded servers and upgrading my backend networking. I haven't been able to answer very many questions. When you test with the default linear download test totally random data is loaded directly into the browser. Basically as text your browser can see but you can't. When you test with multithread your browser is rendering a bunch of HTML elements which are able to be concurrently downloaded. Basically a bunch of images... you can't see. When your browser is presented with data in the way the multithread test renders it will open more than one connection and concurrently download the resources. I hope this helps give you a feel for what's actually happening during the test.

    TCP Optimizer

    I would say my biggest concern is how to regulate the ISPs, I know good luck. Its down to get what you pay for, not have to settle for what they throw. I apologize for being vague about finding ping. We as end users have no control over much of what we receive, meaning there is a limit to how much we can optimize. Are we at the mercy of our providers, or is there more we can do?

    What am I testing?

    I must be missing something. I was thinking that multi-thread translates to 'several, simultaneous streams' as opposed to one stream or several 'concurrent' or "interlaced" streams. What am I testing where? A - Single stream B - Multiple interlaced streams C - Multiple concurrent streams D - Multiple simultaneous streams Ignoring duplex, direction and such factors. Just looking for the starting point to understanding. Is it possible to simulate a single user/multiuser environment without having several local devices signed in and running identical tests at nearly identical start times? If I don’t receive a serious reply, then I can read into it that I should just spend my time on other things and let this entire endeavor be what it will be and people will just have to make the most of what they experience.

    I’m another long time user, first time poster. To check ping, you can use the ping command followed by the ip address or URL of the server you wish to ping. The tracert command on Windows and the traceroute command on *NIX including macOS X and Ubuntu works the same way, you can also look them up gir more information.
