    Hi, I am hoping someone can help me connect to testmy.net speed test site. I have used this site without problem for over a year, but tonight I ran a test, the results were much less than I usually get, so I deleted the results from my saved tests, then reset my modem. After my modem came back up, I could not connect to the site that runs the speed tests. I can connect to every other site I try, including the forum, but when I try to go to the test site, it goes to a page that just says... Connect failed: Connection refused. I have restated my computer, used Ccleaner to clear my cookies and cache, just as I have for years, yet when I try to get the site to load the speed tests, I get a page that says... Connect failed: Connection refused While I can use any other speed test site without a problem even after not being able to use this site to test my speed, and my speeds are right back to the high speed of around 250 that I expect, this is the only speed site I care to use. Does anyone have any ideas that might make it so I can use this site to test my speeds again? Thank you for any and all help you might be able to give me

    Actually, it was 5 indexes on that table. On to ResultDetails...

    No problem. Just crashed again briefly... this time is was the database server that runs the forum database. I'll start resetting these services on a schedule every few weeks. Hopefully that will help avoid this a little more in the future.

    Thank you for fixing it. It seems to be working just fine for me now, I was able to run the test and see my speeds are in the usual 250 range. Thanks again

    Thank you so very much for responding to my post and giving me that information. I am sorry you are having issues with your database and server, but am very happy to know it isn't something wrong on my end. I will just be patient as you work it all out. Thank you again for responding and letting me know. I wish you a lot of good luck in getting everything worked out and situated. I also thank you for providing this great site for testing our speeds, it, and you, are very much appreciated.

    Is my Internet speed accurate?

    No, not at all. You just have to think about who wrote it, Vimeo's technical department, they're IT dudes like we are. They don't have any horse in the game so they really just want to help people and get them to get the right answer. The people who I'd think were in an alternate universe (at this point... didn't used to be this way) if they said that... internet service providers. Nearly all of them. I hope one day that changes. I hope one day that they're delivering service so outstanding and they're so confident in its performance that they purposely refer people to the most difficult internet speed test... instead of ones that favor them / make efforts to give users the best chance to score high. But like I said before in this forum, until then... I'm more than happy with the >1% who get it.

    14 years...

    Hi All! 14 years ago I made an account here, and man oh man have things changed in that time. At the time, I had a connection at work that was "fast" compared to a lot of people in the US because I was hanging on 3 multiplexed DS3's.. at the time it provided me a whopping 45 Mbits of bandwidth. I thought I was hot stuff.. Anyway, good to be back; glad to see the forum is still active. Odysseus_____

    400+ everywhere else but >10 here. HELP!

    Update: I purchased a Thunderport ethernet adapter today and since i plugged that in I have seen dramatic increase in stability and overall speed. I know this isnt an option for some computers but figured I'd let anyone reading know. Still not anywhere near advertised speeds though...

    Dear Prashanth, The reason why all the other tests are showing you the same is because nearly all of the testing sites run the same software. That runs on flash which isn't the best protocol for testing your connection through the browser. Read the following... https://testmy.net/legit-speed-test.php https://testmy.net/ip...m-speedtestnet/ Ookla tests and other flash speed tests can adjust your speed by up to 40% to offset for an unknown variable. If the variable isn't know... how can you offset for it. No matter what, they're guessing at best. TestMy is the only test of its kind in existence. And has been in development for nearly 10 years longer than Oolka (speedtest.net and nearly all other tests online). There could be a lot of reasons this can happen. Bad peering (routing), bad cable modem, MTU could be set wrong... TestMy's results has even been known to reflect issues with hard drives. I encourage you to browse and post in my forum. Read some of the hundreds of posts where people had the same scenario as you, something that other tests missed.... sure enough, they almost always find an issue. https://testmy.net/ipb/ -- post your issue and one of us will help you resolve it. Trust me, it's not my system. Hundreds of millions of tests have been ran and nobody is complaining. https://testmy.net/ipb/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/wink.png - Cheers - Damon Mueller - TestMy.net
