    Sean, Called Mediacom and got a tech in NY. Looked at my account and took less than a minute to see that it was a hardware issue on their side. Cable guy came and tested the outdoor tap, checked my equipment and confirmed it was outside issue. Now to see if they can locate and repair. Thanks

    I’m finding the results of the download speed test reported by the beta version is consistently about 5Mbps higher than the Old Version, which I’ve replicated on a second device running a different browser. I repeated the download test 3 times, switched version, repeated, and switched back and forth a few times. Oddly, the beta version is reporting download speeds higher than the router device claims it’s currently negotiated with the network.

    After two weeks of working on this, the final piece of the puzzle turned out to be the green box in my yard. This one sits between the sidewalk and the curb. As such it has taken several hits from the snow plows over the years. The entire box and its base was loose and able to rock back and forth. This apparently caused some sort of break in the connection. They dug the base up and replaced it. reinstalled the box and packed the soil in around it. Now I'm running at full speed 24/7. Good job by Mediacom in resolving this issue. Frank

    Thanks CA3LE, I'll look into that after the summit. Just curious - any chance you run Dropbox? I keep 99% of everything in Dropbox so backing up really shouldn't be too bad but if I have to reload any programs that aren't Windows, re-syncing this program could take a while and I'll have to factor that in... However, Sean is a genius. I can't believe I didn't try my mobile upload speeds! Turns out...that's not doing to hot either! Only 688 kbps, whereas my host average shows up as 23.9 Mbps. The city average is only 2.5 Mbps, which is still way better than what I'm getting, but is "host" the internet provider that I'm connected to? I'm feeling like I'm back at square one BUT slightly relieved that maybe it's not my laptop afterall? GAH, thank you guys so much for your patience and all your ideas!

    New version speed test results too high

    Maybe that z-lib compression fix helped your situation as well. Please let me know.  It looks like this fixed an intermittent spike I was getting at the start of the odd test as apart from one test in the morning, it hasn't happened again today despite running many tests. For example, this was a test I ran on my mobile this morning over LTE cellular data where it had an unusual spike at the start of the test: Generally whenever I rerun the test, it goes fine, so I've just been assuming it was my browser glitching from time to time as I use the Firefox nightly App on my mobile. For example, the test below was run right after the above:

    New version speed test results too high

    Best vps hosting in Israel is https://www.kamatera.com/ (aka clubvps). They work with 3 different data centers in Israel: 012, Netvision (both called Rosh Ha-ayin location 1 and Rosh Ha-ayin location 2 respectively) and with the largest ISP in Israel "BezeqInt" called "Petah Tikva location" server. (you can see them listed on speedtest.net by searching "kamatera"). The owner name is Yohai Azulai, he is a great guy and may be willing to cut a deal with you in exchange for advertsing or something, so that you can have 3 different Israel locations to test on, while not paying or paying very little...just an idea.

    By the way, both tests were done using single-threaded tests to Singapore from the same TOT Thailand connection/PC and incognito browser page and I reproduced the same discrapancies multiple times.

    Auto Test has lost the top banner

    When running the Automatic Speed Test we’re no longer seeing the top banner showing the latest test execution number of total planned, and the next expected execution time – with action buttons to stop the test and to force a re-test.

    That’s odd since I did close the browser and check there were no background chrome processes running between my retests. But I restarted the device today and now cannot get this feature to misbehave. All therefore seems to be sorted. Thank you.

    Auto Test has lost the top banner

    Using the new version I can see the banner appear very briefly while Download Test #1 (256kb) is running (or even more briefly immediately after Test #1 is done), but it's removed as as soon as Test #1 ends or at the start of Download Test #2 or the start of Upload Test #1. Perhaps a screen clear is done instead of a frame clear.

    Who testmy.net is

    Hey @djk44883 I was reading through the thread and i enjoyed your critical (yet friendly) and constructive approach. Well done ☀️ Now to the point and first off: Thanks @CA3LE for keeping up the spirit and the site. What i have come up with is that if you have any IT-related people in your friends circle you could show them the website for a "critical test" of the legitimacy of the project/website.

    Auto Test has lost the top banner

    I closed and restarted my browser, still no banner. Rebooted too. In fact I can’t get the auto test to run in the new version. I tested 5min intervals for 12 times for download only and only the first results are listed in Results view for the ConnectID 8079715222787. I’m running Chrome Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows 10 Home Version 1809 (OS Build 177663.437). I switched back to Old Version and reran this test and it’s all OK.

    The beta is much cleaner and a good improvement. Might be interesting to make the learn and details/share aspect a bit more visible, as people could easily miss them. Given the quality of the information in those sections and the marketing implications of the share portion, could be worth drawing a bit more attention to them. Also, think it could be a good addition to add the what makes TMN different somewhere a bit more visible on the results page as well. This is good content, especially for new people to the site and shows your competitive advantage. Overall though, great job with the new version.

    Up until recently reCaptcha has never given me any bother, except occasionally when using over a shared network such as cellular data or a privacy VPN. Just recently while on a reCaptcha protected form, I ticked the "I'm not a robot" and got a puzzle. Usually, it's just a matter of solving it and lets me proceed. This time, it gave me another puzzle to solve, followed by another and so on. After solving something like 10 puzzles I tried the audio challenge, only to be told that I cannot use this option due to sending automated queries. I checked with another IP address (e.g. rebooting router) in case I was assigned a blacklisted IP, but still faced the same issue with reCaptcha. After some searching online and finding plenty others in the same situation, I came across a discussion with a few mentioning to try Chrome. Sure enough, when I tried the same page in chrome, I got the green tick without having to solve anything. So this rules out my network and pointed the issue to Firefox. It then hit me that one of the new features with Firefox 67 beta is that it blocks tracking cookies by default, which you can see by clicking the circled 'i' to the left of the address bar: To test this, I went to a Whois page on a domain registrar (which are usually reCaptcha protected), typed in testmy.net and sure enough when I ticked reCaptcha, it gave a puzzle: I then turned off blocking on the site (grey button in first screenshot above) and refreshed the page. When I ticked the box again, I got the green tick without any puzzle. 😺 As far as I'm aware of, the stable Firefox releases are not affected unless you turn on content blocking. For example, on my laptop, I got the green tick straight away in Firefox 66, but when I tried in Firefox 67b with tracking cookies blocked by default, reCaptcha gave me a puzzle. reCaptcha tip Before potentially wasting time on what could be an endless loop, click the 'Headphones' icon underneath: If it tells you that the audio challenge is not available, then do not attempt to solve the puzzle either. From my experience above and having reCaptcha issues before with a blacklisted IP on a privacy VPN, if reCaptcha does not offer an audio challenge, then it almost certainly will deliver an endless number of puzzles to solve, i.e. there's no getting past without trying something else such as a different network.

    I'm pretty sure dropbox is only keeping track of the files that the fresh start wouldn't be touching anyways. Before starting the process it will show you a list of programs that would need to be re-installed. Most of them should be available for download from the manufactures with a quick Google search... some of them you might realize you don't actually need. Search for "fresh start" in the start menu and start the process to see the list, then make sure you're able to get all of the programs that you actually need. Keep in mind, getting that information doesn't start the process. You still have to confirm that you're ready to start. But hey, you might not even need it. Maybe it's just the connection you're on. Yeah he is, that's why he has a special title here. That's a great suggestion, I'll get that worked into the guide. A quick comparison like this in this case tells us a lot. -- the idea to try it the other way, using your phone's hotspot to the laptop will also tell us a lot. Especially if your mobile internet is able to achieve a higher upload speed. Sign in to your account on your phone, make sure you're on the same wifi as your computer and run a few more tests so we can see your results. Then disconnect from the wifi and run upload tests using your mobile plan. Yes. I think it's been the connections you're connecting to recently. You can prove it by putting your laptop on a KNOWN better connection. Best if it's one that you've proven performance on using other devices or computers. So if your mobile device scores much higher, do Sean's hotspot idea. If you don't see any limiting affect on the hotspot you can be pretty sure the other connection is just running poorly.

    Just to rule out the laptop completely, try running a speed test on your mobile connected on the same Wi-Fi connection. In your phone's web browser, go to testmy.net, then run the upload test. If the upload speed is much better on the phone, then the issue is likely a software issue on the computer (especially if you tested by both Ethernet and Wi-Fi). If the upload speed on the mobile is also poor, the issue is with the home's Internet (try again with the laptop switched off to be sure). In this case, if your mobile has good 4G reception there and you have a large data allowance (e.g. 5GB or more), try running an upload test over its data connection from your laptop. Most phones have a hotspot feature (On Android it's Settings -> More -> Tethering & portable hotspot). Turn this on and connect your laptop to that Wi-Fi (check phone's screen for its Wi-Fi password). Then run an upload test. Turn off the hotspot feature afterwards or reconnect your laptop back to the home's Wi-Fi network.

    To me it seems like a file sharing application (e.g. BitTorrent based) may be hogging the uplink. Bring up the Windows Task Manager (Shift + Ctrl + ESC), go into the Performance tab and then go into Ethernet or WiFi on the left, depending on how you're connected. If the "Send" value shows continuous activity, go into the Process tab, then click the Network heading (indicated below) to sort down by network usage. This should reveal the culprit. In the following example, I ran an upload test in Firefox, so it clearly stands out here: If nothing shows up on your computer, try disconnecting every network device you have (mobiles, tablets, Internet connected set top boxes, etc.) and rerun the upload speed test on your PC. If the upload speed is much better, reconnect a device, wait a few minutes and rerun the upload test. Repeat for each device.

    That's funny, I just happened to be looking at your account as you registered. -- you'd think it was the php logo that caught my attention but I actually only saw your username first. I really appreciate that you want to donate. Over 10 years ago there was a link for donation, maybe I'll bring it back. If you really want to help testmy.net... talk about it. Your word-of-mouth drives my engine. Spreading the word is most valuable. If testmy.net helps you all I ask is that you talk about it, write about it, link to it or just continue to use it. You wanting to donate already means a lot to me. Thank you! Hope to see you around here for a long time!

    Automated speed test application

    Sounds a lot like testmy.net. Don't know if you realized yet, you can run automated speed tests here. And the anonymous data is logged for research. By everyone. Sorry, I haven't heard of the other project. Sounds pretty cool though.

    Sorry about that, it's correctly offsetting your time now. I detect your timezone and then use that information to offset the server time. There was a misconfiguration on my end that caused the 1 hour mistake.

    Auto test not running

    You can just minimize the browser or have it running in a different browser tab and just ignore it. I see what you're saying, it would be cool to have it in the tray, running as a task. I'm heavy in the belief that web applications will be the future of nearly all applications. I've always geared TestMy.net toward a 100% browser experience. The new version of TestMy.net is a full PWA. Taking advantage of many new browser features, 100% adopted by all major browsers at this point. In the next versions of Chrome you will be able to install TestMy.net and have it run and behave as a normal desktop application. You can also add it to your mobile device and have a more app like feel. It's much faster and offers offline capabilities. For instance enabling auto resume for the automatic speed test, a feature I've always been looking to add. Testing time is near. The new functionality coming to developers in browsers ... is blurring the lines between native and web applications. I imagine it's only the beginning. The progression at the browser level is ramping up quickly. Browsers are implementing cutting edge features at an astonishing rate and it's feeling like ALL of them are agreeing to standards for once. I've been developing for the internet since the beginning, never seen this kind of progress. I've never developed for iOS, Android, Desktop etc. Now and especially in the future ONE web application can branch across all of those platforms. Especially when you're a single developer... it can be hard to manage even 1 code base. So I hope that in the future it's just part of the way TestMy.net works... using the latest tools I have available. Hopefully you'll see by minimizing it... you can run it that way for over a year.

    You probably don't have Utorrent setup right, as thus get poor speeds. Below is a step by step guide to ensure utorrent is set up right. Utorrent tweaks. For starters, get rid of the latest Utorrent (that you probably have), it's slow and bloated and a POS in my opinion. Download 2.2.1, it's the best version in my opinion. (I have tested a lot) You can get it from here. (see link below) http://www.oldversion.com/windows/download/utorrent-2-2-1-build-25302 Once installed, follow these settings. 1/ Open up Utorrent and go to Preferences. 2/ Go to Connections in the list. 3/ In connections check these settings. Port used for incoming connection 45682 Enable UDnP port mapping Enable NAT-PMP port mapping Add Windows Firewall exception. 4/ Go to Bandwidth and pop in these settings. Maximum upload rate – 1 (best speeds) or 22 (legally best speeds) Maximum download rate – 0 Apply rate limit to transport overhead – Uncheck Apply rate limit to uTP connections – Uncheck Stop transfers on user interation – Uncheck Global maximum number of conection – 1890 Max number of connected peers per torrent – 2329 Number of upload slots per torrent – 14 Use additional upload slots – Check 5/ Go to BitTorrent and check all these settings: Check everything except limit local peer bandwidth. Outgoing: Enabled Allow incoming legacy connections – Check 6/ go to Queuing and pop in these settings: Maximum number of active torrents – 60 Maximum number of active downloads – 63 Seeding Goal minimum ratio – 100% Minimum seeding time – 0 7/ Go to Advanced -> Disk Cache and pop in these settings: Check everything in this section. Override automatic cache size – 500 8/ Go to Advanced and pop/change these settings: bt.allow_same_ip – True bt.connect_speed – 20 bt.enable_tracker – True bt.no_connect_to_services – False bt.send_have_to_seed – False dht,rate – 2 gui.bypass_search_redirect – True gui.delete_to_trash – False ipfilter.enable – False net.outgoing_port – 50 net.wsaevents – 150 peer.disconnect_inactive_interval – 900 queue.dont_count_slow_dl – False queue.dont_count_slow_ul – False rss.update_interval – 20 Click Apply and restart Utorrent. Good luck with it all and let me know how your speeds are afterwards.
