    would a repeater help me?

    hey thanks Sean, this info helps a lot. i figured the repeater wouldnt help but i figured i would ask? i also figured everything else was good cuz i even saw 30 mbps one time @ 3:am before testing. i aslo just learned that my wi-fi is as good as ethernet direct plug in. i ran a test on each and both had same results. both took 15 minutes to test. wi-fi had .233 & hardline had .217 i know how to verify when all wi-fi devices are disconnected. i am hoping hughes will fix my problem and currently trying to communicate with them? my only other opti

    Hey Sean im stoked ! i fired up the nighthawk today & got 16 mbps @ 5:pm in the afternoon! Netfix is quick and back to the way it is intended to be watched? i got the netgear mobile app fired up and changed codes and stuff. ( it didnt want to complete with my i-phone 7 but did apply on my wifes android for some reason? ) the only thing is that on the LCD screen on the nighthawk it says 16 days remaining and doesnt show how many GBs are remaining? does tt take a day or so for everything to jive & process ? or do i need to punch in details on the app?

  3. The best way is to change the identifier on the test page, such as to "Location 01". Each test you perform will then be marked with this chosen identifier: On the test results page, change the Identifier field to the identifier you picked to only show tests carried out with this identifier, such as "Location 01" in this example: This will hide all your previous results apart from those marked with this identifier. If you wish to later see your old results again, you can change the dropdown back to "All Identifiers". This is useful if you use TestMy ac

    As I mentioned above, it has a 100GB cap and then it's throttled to 128kbps for the remainder of the month. 128kbps is barely usable for anything more than e-mail and browsing, so you definitely don't want to go over the 100GB allowance. It's worth asking T-Mobile if you can purchase another 100GB if you reach the limit before the month is out. Otherwise if you find yourself regularly running into the 100GB limit, you could get a second prepay SIM, then when you reach the 100GB limit, swap the SIM cards and purchase a 100GB plan on the other SIM. I have a neighbour that asked fo

    Sean again thank you so much. im learning LOL! so i stopped by t-mobile in town today before i saw your reply. i think i educated myself more than the emplyees that worked there LOL. but they were friendly & helpful. they found the unlimited plan but it is not available in my area YET? they offered a 100GB plan for $50 a month and tried to push a little 5G aircard on me. it sounded good but i didnt care for the two aircards they showed me. said it was like $17 a month payment plan. i would rather buy the M1 outright. i looked at a couple o

    wow thank you so much for the schooling. thats cool that you can look at previous stats! i am just outside of klamath falls in oregon (PMT) i missed spectrum with land cable internet by 2 miles. i had them in southern california with unlimited 200 mbps for $79 a month. it was excellent! i will definitely do homework on that mobile aircard. i had a verizon one at work that was cool but it wasnt unlimited. i checked with verizon here while getting some phone stuff done and they said there moble aircard would loose mbps after 10 minutes. so i forgot a

    Unfortunately, a Wi-Fi repeater will not offer any improvement. A Wi-Fi repeater would only help improve coverage to an area with weak or no Wi-Fi coverage. It certainly does not improve speed to an area with good Wi-Fi coverage despite what the ads promote. In fact, they actually cut the Wi-Fi bandwidth in half by repeating every piece of data between the Wi-Fi router and the Wi-Fi connected device. As you are able to get up to 25Mbps offpeak, this also confirms that your Wi-Fi connection is not at fault, but instead with your Internet provider limiting the speed during normal

  10. Correct. Thank you @Sean It's supposed to be disallowed on registration. I'll look into that to make sure it's not an issue for users in the future. @Rebecas hose I modified your username. Run a few tests and it will save under that new username (https://testmy.net/quickstats/Rebecas hose) correctly.

  12. I was once a Hughesnet customer and had the same problems from time to time. It is shared bandwidth; therefore, the more devices added, the less bandwidth you receive. It's a normal practice for Hughesnet to "oversell" available bandwidth. I've also known quite a few people with the service and they all report the same problems. Once their 30 day trial period ends and their contracts are locked in, the service they receive after that point is poor to say the least. It's as if they give new customers "PRIORITY" access until the trial ends, and then, BAM, customers find

  13. Might you happen to have a DSL reseller in the area? 'Dry loop' or 'dark DSL'. They might be able to tell you one way or another(don't sign anything before full confirmation, such as modem blinking happily away). Even though it is still AT&T that provisions the DSL connection. Unless you are in one of those places where DSL went around you. You could also inquire as a potential business line customer(phone business number). A 'potential' home office, since you do not yet have a business number. Gets you past the screen reading drones. Note that your phone number and address may sh
