    TMN on the News

    Awesome! Thank you Ken Colburn from Data Doctors. https://www.abc15.com/news/let-joe-know/paying-for-fast-speeds-why-is-your-computer-so-slow Another great article at KTAR - http://ktar.com/story/2530346/why-is-my-internet-slow-even-though-the-speed-test-says-it-is-fast/

    Hello @DESAND I am going to try to make this as less of a work as possible for you. (I think?) I assume you are running windows 7 or above... Open any folder anyway you like... or just directly file explorer... 1. On the address bar copy and paste this: Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center Hit enter, and when you are the page I hope you are at. You should see what you are connected with. 2. Beside connection. you would see Ethernet or Wireless in blue. Click on it. 3. The window that pops up shows your hardware capabilities. This is the maximum your network card can go up to theoretically. (No way you'll hit this, even PC to PC direct transfer. As your other components w/ bottleneck the transfer of file transfers) Screenshot below for an example: As you can see my network card is 1000Mbps/Gbps capable. I don't get these speeds, but here we are :P Hope this is what you are asking for? Please clarify if it isn't. Cheers!

    How does a WISP work?

    Some of the wireless internet service providers (WISPs) that operate here in Ireland operate on the 5GHz Wi-Fi band. This is basically like a home Wi-Fi set up, but on a much bigger scale. The purpose of the dish is provide a high enough gain to pick up and transmit the signal over a several mile radius. The tower usually consists of several sector antennas, typically three aimed 120 degrees apart operating on separate channels. Customers on one sector generally share the same channel like on a home Wi-Fi network. The last WISP I was with used Ubiquiti hardware. When I changed provider, I was curious myself to check out its web interface and to my surprise they never changed the default password on the dish hardware's web interface. Its configuration was very similar to home Wi-Fi, mainly an SSID, WPA2 passphrase and internal IP address set. Their service end likely had a gateway server that throttled the up/down bandwidth according to whatever package was ordered, while also metering the usage from the assigned IP address. Ubiquiti has a training book freely available on their website which goes into detail on how enterprise Wi-Fi works including on a large scale that WISPs use: https://dl.ubnt.com/guides/training/courses/UEWA_Training_Guide_V2.1.pdf A few other WISPs here use LTE on the licenced 3.6GHz band. This basically works the same as a mobile phone LTE service, but where the operator has exclusive control over its assigned spectrum, LTE hardware and installation. As this is a managed network, it generally performs a lot better than a mobile phone LTE network as each LTE client device (i.e. that dish antenna on the roof) is professionally installed, maximising the signal encoding efficiency. The weaker the signal quality, the more airtime is required to transmit the same amount of data.

    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

    CA3LE your advice worked :)

    So here is a short few laps I ran at Chicagoland with most updated graphics. BJ Sheldon ( My Teammate) did the amazing graphics for me and did a great job. BTW my speed is better using WIFI ( ASUS USB AC68 Adapter 1.3 Gbps ) then using the onboard Realtek Lan 1.0 Gbps wired into Gateway. Plus so sad seen using the (Xfinity Test) they say I get 998 Mbps/45Mbps but I know that is a farce plus watching speeds jump all over the place. I sure am thankful you have a site we can get realistic speed results , I doubt I ever use any servers in portland where you know I use iRacing ( Boston MA) servers almost daily and is nice to get realistic results from that distance . Here is link to my short youtube clip of truck, will get some more soon with entire races just wanted to get you something as it has been awhile I Have the Testmy.net on my B class Xfinity Toyota and my A class Monster Energy Toyota also will get those posted soon . If Dodge ever comes back to Nascar I will then be running MOPAR Vehicles If you think I need to change anything let me know

    Date Format Problem in downloaded CSV file

    Sean, Your solution worked! Thank you so much for sorting this mystery. I am in the UK so the date format is the same as for Ireland. Another slice of Excel knowledge gained by me . CA3LE - Yes please - if you can add the site option for the date format that will make it a whole lot easier for those of us on this side of the pond.

    The other day I was getting pissed off at my cell phone for running so slow. I was in the city where I used to get dwnld speeds of 50+Mbps. I ran a TMN speed test and was only getting on 2 attempts 15- 20 Mbps. I realized I hadn't cleared the cache and history on the phone in awhile. I forgot to look at how much was stored before clearing but took almost 10 mins. After clearing I ran a test and the download results were 56 Mbps I guess to be a Smartphone it has to have a smart user. :)

    My Average Tool

    Thanks, I'm surprised there hasn't been more response to this. It's pretty much the most powerful tool I've ever built... statistically speaking. Personally, I love it. My Average also works with all of the ISPs, cities and countries in the database. Those areas are in development but will be released in iterations soon. I'm using it right now and... to me, it's crazy to see years of data plotted out in front of me, so quickly. Many of the queries aren't even close to optimized or indexed but it can still make it happen like lightning. Around 2011/2012 I changed the way providers were being logged to the database, this tool combines the old data with the new data for its calculations so I'm able to get full records going back to 2005. All in milliseconds. (actually the database predates that but an early error reset all of the dates to 2005... whoops! Too late by the time I noticed. Live, learn, be happy.) These are extremely heavy queries to the database but using some of the same strategies that I use for hoststats I'm able to make these pages render for you in under 0.05 seconds. Behind the scenes these queries take minutes but TMN is in the background pre-fetching and caching calculations. Check out how much Hughes Net has improved over the years. LOL, that 2nd video was copyright claimed for the audio before I could even post this. (I mean right as I pasted the link) Youtube is on it! That's good, that dude deserves credit. So you might see ads just on that 2nd video... just wanted to share what I was really listening to right now.

    Bufferbloat! (latency under load)

    Both the dslreports folk and fast.com reached out the the bloat email list (see lists.bufferbloat.net) as to how to go about measuring this problem properly in their codebases. You will find a lot of good info in the archives there, and we're always looking for sites to be actively testing for bufferbloat. Of the two, dslreports has thus far been doing a great job, so great that their dataset is thoroughly polluted by people that used the site to fix their bufferbloat!!, so we no longer have a real picture of what the internet is really looking like. (so I really, really, really applaud the idea of a new site, such as yours, attempting to tackle the problem also) I have a few nits on the dslreports stuff I've always wanted them to address, also. A few are: 0) huge threads on the bloat lists that I won't summarize... a noted one is the insistence on doing some level of statistical ledgerdemain on the data (throwing out the worst 5% of the data, or picking an arbitrary threshold of X latency for bufferbloat, etc. )When it comes to this sort of science, the *really* interesting data is in the outliers, not the averages. This is a detailed look at that sort of statistical rigor problem from a talk I gave at sigcomm 2014: http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2014/doc/slides/137.pdf (they've never invited me back) 1) Since the adoption of fq_codel in OSX, openwrt, thousands of commercial routers (notably now in Wifi - see google's implementation here: http://flent-newark.bufferbloat.net/~d/Airtime based queue limit for FQ_CoDel in wireless interface.pdf ) and the universal enablement of ECN in that OS, we are starting to see ECN negotation and CE markings show up in multiple data sets. It would be good to track that somewhere. 2) both dslreports and fast.com throw out too much data. The really core and scary bufferbloat problem is when a network is too congested to operate worth a dang in the first place. I keep hoping that someday dslreports, at least, will create a plot that just shows the data they currently throw out - an analogy of what we might discover is here: https://www.space.com/25945-cosmic-microwave-background-discovery-50th-anniversary.html 3) I really like the http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/results/bufferbloat?up=1 plot - my kvetch is that it is only a 10 day most recent summary and I've had to rely on screen shots to be able to compare stuff over time. I'd long hoped for a deal where they could sell or share that dataset to researchers. The bufferbloat problem IS getting better - assuming the dslreports dataset isn't totally polluted but there is a long, long way to go. 4) Nobody's tests run long enough to saturate higher speed links, due to how slow TCP ramps up. A variable length test, or one that runs longer when it detects high bandwidth is in use. dslreports cuts off their data set and test with 4+ second delays - and we have seen delays as bad as hundreds of seconds in the field. 5) A really simple test would be to measure syn and syn/ack times while under load for a string of very short tcp transactions. This would emulate web traffic better. 6) Recently published (and under discussion on the bloat list) was a pretty good summary of the speedtest problems we have on the internet going forward. Discussion here; https://lists.bufferbloat.net/pipermail/bloat/2019-May/009211.html - the paper, here: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1905.02334.pdf Anyway, we're kind of old internet fogies that mostly use email, and not web forums like this, if you have further questions, want to gain testers, or have someone from the bufferbloat effort or academia help dissect the data, please drop us a line on bloat at lists.bufferbloat.net. Best of luck with it! Thx!

    For over a year I've been complaining to my ISP that I thought there was a problem with the modem I rent from them. I am paying for a service of 100Mbps. They guarantee 80% of that. The best results I ever got from TMN was 56Mbps via network cable, avg 38 via wifi output. On at least a weekly basis I would have to call them and reset the modem. On a couple occasions they sent out a service tech. The first time the tech added a coax coupler and ran a test (Speedtest.net) and showed me I was getting 87Mbps. I told the tech that wasn't an accurate test. A few months later they sent out a tech again to check the equipment. He ran a speedtest (Ookla) on his phone using my wifi. After several attempts he finally got a speed of 76Mbps. I ran a test on my Laptop using TMN and got a result of 48Mbps. I was told to run Speedtest because it tested from their own server. Ran the test using Speedtest and got a result of 78 and was told TMN was not reliable. Fast forward: This past 2 weeks I've had to call daily and get them to reset the signal. Finally Thur 5/09 they agreed to send out a tech on Tues to check and possibly swap out the Hitron modem. Friday when the service stopped again I asked if I could drive the forty miles to the store. Saturday I did so and here are the results. TMN 92.8 dnld 7.87 up with peak down at 94.8. surprisingly at test at Speedtest.net give a download speed of 94.87 Mbps. Sunday I actually had a TMN download speed of 99.6. Thanks to TMN my ISP has given me a $60 credit for this month and a $30 reduction for the next 12 months. Thank you, Denny

    I love it. Many more options and easier to track results. I was able to use the graphed results to show my ISP there was a problem with either their service or equipment. A change out in the equipment resolved the ongoing problem and retain me as a customer.No other tests provide graphical results showing fluctuations speed.

    Thank for your response. You're awesome. I'm going to post in a new conversation a story of how TMN helped me get my ISP to finally replace my modem/router this weekend. Denny

    Big Beef

    What am I testing?

    EDIT: (When I posted this it appeared under the name Big Beef and not Pahoo. Big Beef was another old nickname I had so now I’m confused ??‍♂️ if I created 2 accounts⁉️ I’m supposed to be Pahoo Katawah.) This site has allowed me to document the incredibly poor service I’ve been receiving and the ISP responded by confirming it and said they need to do pole work. They’ve called the police to arrange a day/time and I’m waiting to hear back about it. I pay for 400 Mbps down but receive between 50 and 150 (see my testing results). If I pay for 100 Mbps I save $10/month! I’m just going to keep pushing them, which is why I spend my time running and sending test results instead of getting in here to the forum ☹️ ?‼️ Pahoo

    By the way, that progress bar is the oldest part of the entire TMN program. Original code. I mean, just look at this comment. this.setBar = resetBar; //doing this inline causes unexpected bugs in early NS4 haha, NS4 is referring to Netscape Navigator 4! That old bit of code is EXTREMELY hard for me to wrap my head around today. I struggle to make edits to it. I attempted to obfuscate (and minify, before that was a thing) the code but then ended up just making it hard for myself to understand later. But that base progress bar code is so slim (very little code) and does the job perfectly in my opinion... so I made sure to carry it over. There are two progress meters... but they're telling you different things. And I feel it's more than just % and MB downloaded. The original progress bar is so simple in its design that I think it gives a better feel for what's happening sometimes. I'm still trying to work the date range selection into the My Results on mobile devices. Just need to make it look right. Trust me, I want it there too. For now, the only way to select date range on mobile is through the Connection Guide or Hourly Tool. I'll definitely change the way the date displays so that it shows the month as "Jan" vs "01" --- I actually can make it display in your countries default format too I just need to connect some other logic that's already built into the site. I can make an array of countries that use "MM-DD-YYYY" and another for "DD-MM-YYYY" --- then have it format appropriately. I plan on making that part of the future My Settings page. This will change the date format to your preferred setting across the site... but will also automatically default to your countries preference.

    Upload speed not showing results

    I logged in yesterday to find a new format, I did an upload test first but no results it just went back to the test my upload speed page. I have tried a few more times but still nothing, also none of the tests are showing in my logged results either. The download tests work okay with the graph showing after the test and are showing in my logged results as well. Edit; Have just used the old version and upload is working as it should be.

    Fixed! Thanks for catching that... very odd error actually. It was a quick and easy find and fix though. Just not completely sure why that happened in that specific instance. It's like, even though I found the 15 characters of code that caused it... it's unclear to me why that would have been an issue. But that's programming for you. I agree. I don't think the majority of people out there will prefer dark mode all the time... but I like that there's an option now.

    @CA3LE I like having the dark mode option. Thanks. I noticed that on the Results page, the Light/Dark selector link at the bottom of the page isn’t there. It’s there on the Download and Upload pages. The date range selector on the Results is pretty cool too. The downside is when you want to display say 6 months of results, you have to scroll the calendar when you used to be able to just enter a number of days. Not sure if you can come up with an easy way to allow the user to just enter the number of days.

    With me, it's similar with running speed tests at night, such as while travelling with someone in a car or on a bus. Even with my phone screen dimmed to minimum, a white page background still gives off plenty of light. This is especailly noticeable when I switch back and forth between the signal meter app (Network Cell Info) which has a black theme and then back to TestMy on the web browser. This is where I like the dark theme. On my PC, I'm happy with the regular white theme particularly during the day time. So with me, it's difficult to say which theme I prefer most as it depends on the situation, a bit like giving my preference on whether I prefer the room light on or off. ? Edit: One issue I've run into with the dark mode is the Express Test does not show the progress meter and the percentage stays at '0%' until the test completes: It does this in both Firefox, Chrome and on my mobile Firefox browser also. The does complete successfully despite showing no progress. The regular and fixed block size tests show the progress fine in the dark mode.

    I am rather enjoying (more like love) the "Dark Mode" but think that the "Light Mode" should be default... Not everyone likes their first time at a website being all dark and gloomy. My reason for dark mode? When I have several computers all on and connected each doing tests through different outgoing gateways on the automated test... I tend to sit down and watch a movie, and white light can get annoying, but a darker screen makes it easy to keep an eye on those tests and enjoy my tv.

    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.

    Auto test stuck in UL-test loop

    I gave this a try on my end in a few browsers including Brave (freshly installed) with the old and new theme. The main difference is I chose 30MB instead of 200MB for the download as my connection is a lot slower. In Brave, Chrome and Firefox with the old theme, it ran tests #1, #2 and #3 and skipped tests #4 & #5. However, it did not restart or get stuck with any test. I tried with the new theme in Chrome with the same set up and it ran all 5 test iterations. To double-check it was skipping tests #4 and #5, I took a screenshot on the third iteration in the old theme: After it ran this third combined test at the 9:04pm, it showed 'Done!' followed by an e-mail. The following is the results page showing the three combined tests and an arrow pointing to the third test time. Interestingly the tab shows 'Test 5 of 5' even though it skipped #4 and #5:

    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!

    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.

    The Ethernet throughput read-out can be pretty close to the actual user data throughput. Its read-out is always a little higher as it includes overhead data, such as for routing, handshakes, error checking/correction and so on. You can see this for the speed it shows in the other direction, i.e. the 0.3Mbps upload shown above is mainly overhead data as this test is taking place. So around 0.3Mbps of that 30.5Mbps is likely overhead data also. If let's say you run this over Wi-Fi or there was a poor Ethernet connection, that figure could be a lot higher than the actual throughput, such as if much of the data over the Ethernet connection to the Router consists of retransmissions. It was one thing that used to bug me with the Ookla test as it would filter out dips that accounted for less than 30% of the test duration, giving inflated test results over wireless connections. If there's a server on the network (e.g. workplace), the Ethernet throughput will include data that occurs over the local network. For example, Windows will periodically index network shares, Exchange databases and so on. Windows 10 also distributes Windows updates between PCs on the same network. Network devices that broadcast data (e.g. printers) will also add to the Ethernet throughput figure. Then again, running an Internet speed test at workplace can also be challenging as it's difficult to make sure the Internet connection itself is idle at the time of testing.

    Dallas servers are all switched out to a different host. I put 10 new servers online in Dallas tonight. This will better parallelize tests. Basically when you test... there's an even better chance that you're testing on a server all by yourself. Also relocated DE and added a 2nd DE server, again to help parallelize. I see better results on both. Dallas for instance... TestMy.net Test ID : a_jeL_PBv I was consistently below 200 Mbps before on the same test. I see improvement, I hope you do too. ? ?

    Wireless interference

    Indeed they should definitely offer a lot mor ethan 30Mbps. I used to peak around 60Mbps with my former Huawei router with only 300Mbps over 802.11n (2.4GHz). With my current set-up, a Huawei B525 with 802.11ac, I get around 110Mbps between it and my desktop PC (TP-Link Archer AC1900 USB) based on a load test between the PC and a laptop connected to the router. This is with the Huawei B525 in the loft at one end of the house attached to a pair of LTE antennas and my desktop PC on the ground floor at the opposite end. Based on my experience troubleshooting Wi-Fi performance in the past, nearby power supplies can severely deteoriate the Wi-Fi performance. For example, I remember my brother struggling to get over 3Mbps over Wi-Fi, only to discover his router was on a shelf with its power supply socket directly underneath the shelf. Due to the shelf location, he couldn't move the router and there was just the one power socket nearby, directly underneath the shelf. As an experiment, he placed a sheet of aluminium foil underneath the router. His Internet speed tests over Wi-Fi jumped straight to about 76Mbps, the same as with a network cable.

    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.

    I recently ran the A Class Race ( Monster Energy Cup Cars) and the B class ( Xfinity Series Cars) and saved the replays but have not had chance to convert them to .MP4 but will post link as soon as I get them converted and uploaded.

    CA3LE your advice worked :)

    Wow did not know that, I tried using the capture supplied by iRacing but are GPU dependent while I Found OBS will use CPU to encode it so it seems to work better. Ill get some for you today and post them to Youtube and send links.

    Auto test stuck in UL-test loop

    I want to set up an auto test every 5 minutes, 200 down, 30 up for x amount of times. The DL-test runs smooth but the DL-test gets stuck in a loop. It aborts when it reaches like 30% and restarts the UL-test. This goes on and on. Win7 64, Brave browser (it's Chrome but with built-in privacy features), connected via WLAN

    New version speed test results too high

    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

    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.

    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've been using Vultr since 2015... yeah, IBM bought softlayer and it all went to shit. Oh well, time to give them back the LAST grandfathered server... they killed the bandwidth on purpose. Deals like mine, had to die. They want all the old customers DEAD -- gone. No joke. Well, you win IBM. BYE! I never wanted to be on your platform in the first place... WAY to rich for my blood. In hindsight, I should have picked up your linode link -- you turned me on to them long before I used them.

    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

    Slow internet

    I got your messages too... I get messages like this almost daily. Please keep in mind, TestMy.net is a third party speed test and is not affiliated with your ISP. We're here to help you. Just like you I'm an average consumer. When I was 15 in 1996 I wanted to see how fast my internet speed was and I couldn't find a proper tool so I started to build what would become TestMy.net in 2002. I build TestMy.net so that people like us have a testing platform outside of ISP control. I'm sorry you're having ongoing issues with Hughes, it's a common theme around here. I rarely meet any satellite user who's truly happy. I assume where you live you have little options, right? Can you get a 4G connection yet? Maybe with the right equipment a cell connection might help. How much data are you transferring monthly?
