    IINET MODEM

    Hello folks Ive been with iinet for nearly 17 years, every IP has there problems at times but overall they have looked after me. My issue here is I upgraded so I thought to one of iinets NBN ready modems when NBN finally gets here. I've been running a Billion 7300N for 6 years and have always been happy with my speed average around 800 kb to over a meg no problems. since changing modems life has been anything but sweet the new modem is slow I mean really slow with an average of around 300-400 kbps a second cant even watch a trailer on IMDB without the dreaded buffering saga, ev

    IINET MODEM

    @raskal , How has your situation changed, is any? Many times DSL will take up to even more than a week to 'auto adjust', run a few more tests now that a few days have passed. And remember, when getting a new DSL modem, leave it powered up for at least a week or so, try not resetting or anything.

  3. Every test I do .. about 6 others consistently rate me in the 16-18ms ping. Why is my ping here always so high? 59 to 65. I know this is a non-flash with better results but Mytest has never been that much at odds. One is as high as 500+. I consistently get the low above across other speed test. Of course I am very interested in ping and then speed. Thanks so much! jack ":-Dx

  4. Question: Is the new cable 'cat5' connected to a LAN port or the WAN port on the wireless node? Your attempts to access the admin side might be triggering a 'rebinding attack'. So it will redirect to a nulled page or error out depending. You'll most likely be required to connect directly to the wireless node to access the admin panel, depending on how it was set up.

  5. We got the above settled as it is impossible to peruse usernames before registering it was purely happenstance, there's no way I could have known there was a "jackinthehouse". That was settled between us all and all is well. As CA3LE said, it's kinda kool that there are so many members that names are starting to resemble each. In a private message to CA3LE I sincerely offered to change my username so no one was offended but he said, Nyet ... so we both keep the names and it's up to you folks who read to keep us separate! haha!

  7. Well according to my friend Art Vandelay, an architect and his recent flame Nurse Paloma ... (LOL) The Westell is connected as shown in the diagram above by direct shielded Ethernet wire. I guess that's what you are asking? The only things I use now wireless are the tablet from time to time and the Roku in either room. I always put the Roku's in inactive when done. Both TV's have a Chromecast connected. I'm not sure but they do show up in the Verizon Console I mentioned above as "connected." Of course I've removed the IP's from the images below. MYPAVIL

  8. You have no idea! We've watched Seinfeld for years, repeat after repeat. Love the obvious. Which obscures the masses. None the less, is the Westel wired or a repeater? I will say you point out the obvious as wired, but I have to ask, otherwise this could account for the high latency between the two , see?

  9. Pedantic? lol, you must have watched Seinfeld. One of George's dates used that word and he had no clue, but he repeated it just to feign knowledge. Me too ... I guess it means redundant or repetitive. As stated above, "" Oh, the reason for the slave and the Ethernet not directly to the HP Compaq is the wireless is being used by a Roku about 10 feet away. "" The Westell was just a left over from earlier days. Rather than throw it we used it to get the signal via the slave nearer the Roku in the FL Room. I call it the porch, , it started out as a porch before remodeled years ago

  10. Westel model number please? I don't intend to be so pedantic, but it is important to know what the device capabilities are to determine if there is a 'better' or more efficient or 'proper' configuration for the specific depth of the layout. And why is the Westel necessary in any event? Unless it is acting as a 'dummy' or hub to connect other devices.

  12. I hope this is what you mean. Crude but gets the job done ... again I hope!!! Oh, the reason for the slave and the Ethernet not directly to the HP Compaq is the wireless is being used by a Roku about 10 feet away. No, they are all off during all tests. In fact I try to have everything using bandwidth off during tests.

  13. Is it possible to get the topology of your network, in other words: Modem---> switch --> windows machine Or Modem --> switch --> switch --> XP windows machine | windows 10 machine It all good, we should have the above before at least myself, has a better understanding of the layout. Also, when referring to the 'node', this could mean any number of network 'devices' in the path, a switch, a router, to keep it simple, it's a 'hop' that

  14. I'll be gone about an hour. But I'm not quite sure what you mean yet. As I mentioned to CA3LE I have an slightly above the average pc user understanding. You mean turn one pc off, I'd probably eliminate the XP on the slave router? That would mean disconnect or pull he Ethernet line from the D-Link Verizon Router which is/was to the XP? As far as nodes or switches I'm clueless. And then when one is completely out of the picture what then? Run the tracert test or ..... Back in an hour. Thanks so much for your time ............

  15. ok no problem, lets simplify this. Take one machine out of the discussion momentary. Is there one of th[e] two machines which can be connected to either or internal 'nodes' or switches as you are referring to? If so lets use that one to test each 'switch or node'

  16. Actually, I mentioned I duplicated the images and confused you. The XP is the one reporting the ms in the 16ms area after the Timed Out's. The 10 box is the one with over 100ms after the Timed outs. I did remove the slave from the 10 box once and ran the same test without the slave being attached. Same results so my laymen mind said the slave has little to do with it. So knowing the 10 is reporting much higher ms after the timed outs what is it that concerns you. I really have no clue, it's a "no clue" question from me. lol

  17. The nodes that timed out are not always abnormal, it's simply the 'security' setup to not respond. What is more concerning appears to be the XP box, where the 10 box has not this issue. Yet you are getting the same test results from both machines, correct me?

  19. The one with the lower ms after the Timed out is the XP on the Slave and the one with the way high ms after the timed out is the Windows 10. Are those "timed outs" the issues. Does that signify the problem. If so I can get the neighbors to run this tracert too and see if it's a commonality in this little cul de sac.

  21. I only use the others as a reference. Most times actually Testmy and they are not that far apart. But the one I always watch and trust is Testmy and it's results. Now I don't know what to do. I guess I'm done. Verizon is all we have. No FIOS will ever be here and I will never go Comcast again. 3 other neighbors in my immediate vicinity have the same service. Would love for him to see if they've got these fluctuations. What simple test could I ask them to do to check for just fluctuation? Is satellite internet a bad proposition. It's more expensive and I have to consider that. But these fluctua

  22. Could easily be on your ISP's end... it may be totally out of your hands. No matter how good you make it your end, you're only as strong as the weakest link. It is fluctuating heavily and that's never good. I would definitely look deeper into that. Aren't you convinced yet that those other sites are a waste of your time? Why do you keep visiting them? You're never a bother, I appreciate questions, comments and suggestions. Keep 'em coming!

  23. Room for improvement? Gee .. how. I just spent a whole week installing shielded DSL line, dedicated no other phones on it. I wonder what else I could do to "improve" the stats. I never doubted your tests or your manners of doing things. I was just wondering about the differences being shown. I'm still not sure I understand all the input. If brother was here he'd be able to break it down. Alas, he just left a few hours ago. We thought we'd really done something all the work we did this week. We cut new ends on the telephone lines on the block inside. Brightened the posts, shielded dedicated DSL

  24. You've confirmed what TMN is telling you. The two 16ms readings tell us that. Your actual ping isn't far off from what TMN Response Time shows. Run it longer than 4 hops, try ping -c 20 east.testmy.net Just like with your Response Time, your ping is going back and forth. That's never a good sign. Room for improvement for sure. Thanks for showing me that the test is working. So yeah, for all we know... the other tests out there that show 'ping' are showing you the best ping out of a series. TMN shows you everything that it sees

  25. Here is the XP on the slave ... the same test on the Windows 10 just next to it. I see a difference but not sure what it all means. You are right, it is not giving the same stats as the 4 other speed tests using flash. I have no idea what this might tell but I suppose to a trained eye some good. About 30ms average difference of the two.

  27. This is the same test run on the Windows 10 connected by Ethernet to the primary D-Link router. An frankly Ca3le I should fess and tell you I'm not real savvy on all the technical issues you are speaking of. Somewhat but not all.

  28. This is a ping test from the kitchen XP on the slave router that is connected by direct shielded Ethernet. A short Ethernet cable to the XP. I'll go do the same on the windows 10 at the primary D-Link Router supplied by Verizon

  30. Do you think something might be going bad on Verizon end. I remember this sort of thing happened once when a module or node or something was beginning to go bad downtown. At this point it's not happening enough to really notice it. Yes, this last comment of mine, test, was on the Windows 10. Sorry, I am doing business on the win10 and just ran a test. AND, I never ignore the results from testmy.net. But I don't know what it might be saying like you would .... ??

  31. Well something happened... Your speed dropped and RT skyrocketed. I see that before it happened the identifier was 'kitchen' is this a different machine? Your RT is as low as 29ms sometimes so it's not far off from what your seeing on the other test. The question is why doesn't it stay there. Look at mine to the server in Colorado Springs https://testmy.net/rt/CA3LE?miq=18&isp=comcast_cable. A few spikes but it's fairly consistent with a low average, an average that's close to the lowest time. That'

  32. I just ran 2 tests here and got below 1mg download. Quickly did Megapath and got 2.7mg download and 17ms latency. So not sure what's going on but no worries. It seems fine. BTW brother was just up from FL and we ran a dedicated DSL shielded line from box to primary Verizon router. We also ran a dedicated shielded Ethernet line to the slave router in the kitchen. And yes, this kitchen one is an XP but the one at the primary is a Windows 10. Just FYI

  33. Yes, DC is my default and never Dallas. lol And I think I follow your reasoning which I know is correct. So ... I'll read it several times until it sinks. Thanks again so very much!

  34. No you shouldn't cut it in half. It's already been cut in half by the time you see it. Your ping to speedtest may also be on a server that's physically closer than the ones you're using here. To do this open your command prompt (looks to me like you're on XP). Type ping east.testmy.net that's for the Washington D.C. server you're using, if you're testing against another server substitute it's subdomain... Central US >> Dallas, TX, USA - dallas Central US >> Colorado Springs, CO, USA - co East Coast US >&g

  35. Understood, good info. However when I run these test it's usually back to back, in sequence, same issues involved. And I've done this running of sequence of tests often and get the low PING say on SpeedTest.net (Yeah, I know your stomach just turned .. ) But I run about 5 like that and TestMy always gives a 2x or more higher ping or whatever the "ms" stat means. Should I cut that in half? Still cut in half not nearly as good as the other multiple stats. When techs come from Verizon or Comcast they all say they don't worry so much about the speed ... it's the ping they look at. ??? No worry, J

  36. There's a reason I don't call it latency or ping. I'm also sorry for not providing any documentation but the truth is... I'm still trying to understand that tool myself. Not finished. What it's testing is the time it takes for you to respond to a very simple request, the round trip time is then cut in half. This number can be very similar to the number you'd get from ping, +1-5ms when things are totally ideal. It can be influenced by the device, browser, software installed on top of the browser and even open tabs. Keep in mind that if your result is affected in the tes
