  2. Hi! Thank you both for your help. I solved this issue 2 days ago, I had a problem in my Windows 10 desktop and I investigated it for a few days till I found this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10694244/sending-data-from-windows-is-slow-over-any-network-with-high-latency-but-linux-i I wrote this on my CMD: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal And it worked! Now if I run the test on my desktop pc I have more than 30Mbps and before I had 3. I don't know why Windows was configured in that way. Have a nice day and thank you for your time

    Incorrect speed test?

    Also, the latency times of roughly 10mSec (Rome), and 30 mSec (Milan), indicate that the route of those tests results of 80+ Mbps weren’t done over a very long distance or complex network like you’re typically getting when you test using TestMy. I’m some 700 miles from the NY server. Milan and Rome are about 300 miles apart. I get about 60 mSec latency to NY. It sounds from the 9mS delay that you’re close to Rome. Your 30 mSec lag is roughly 1/2 of what I typically get and you’re roughly 1/2 the distance from Milan than I am from New York. Your real internet performance wi

    Incorrect speed test?

    The first two tests (Ookla and nPerf) run their tests multi-threaded by default, i.e. they typically make around 8 simultaneous connections to the test server to try to saturate the connection. Ookla has a lot of test servers within the ISP networks, so there is a good chance your test traffic is not leaving their network unless you manually choose another server. To get a multithread test here on TestMy, click the "Multithread off" at the top-right to turn it on. Note that multithreaded tests don't realistically show what you would get streaming or downloading, which generally

  5. Thank you SO much. This fixed my speed. I had this problem over a year ago and ended up just reinstalling Windows to fix it. It came back and I was dreading doing that again :P

  6. That's not surprising. I'm seeing the same at my data-center. They're running several 100Gbit connections, but they also host a bunch of infrastructure for Netflix and Hulu, and they told me that "due to the significant amount of traffic to several of our customers, you may see bandwidth impacts." I got another ticket this week that said they're recarving up their bandwidth to limit those two in particular. Going to be interesting to see how that goes.

    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

I'm currently testing 10G to my home, which was installed with fibre not long ago. This is the fastest test I could do until it told me it was fake!

  10. Hey Guys - I appreciate the feedback and suggestions. I'll definitely try the VPN trick if I continue having issues. Around a week ago I started having much better results, and apart from a few hiccups it has been relatively steady and around 80 Mbps. I had them schedule a technician to come out (they didnt come to my house like I thought they would... but instead must have came and done work in the area / development). We called and were told they had to adjust an amplifier that was impacting about 15 customers, so I'm guessing our entire development. Don't have much more info other than that

    Speed test.net is Flash based. It tends to inflate your speed by 20-30%. Test my.net is HTML based. Much more accurate.

    Public wifi

    There are two options: Option 1 - Mesh Wi-Fi kit (simple to set up, but requires connecting one unit to their router) If the Grocery store is OK with connecting a unit to their router, get a 2 piece Mesh Wi-Fi kit (e.g. Tenda Nova MW6-2) and connect the main Mesh Wi-Fi box to a LAN port of their router. Follow the steps in the Mesh Wi-Fi kit user guide to configure it. Then plug in the second unit in your flat. You should now have a good strong Wi-Fi signal throughout your flat. Option 2 - Get a WISP router and a mesh Wi-Fi router (Nothing needs to be connected

  15. Its a new 2019 macbook - so it has no ethernet port - probably some dongle I could get... I did manage to get it up over 200 Mbps by moving from 10ft away to right over my wifi router so definitely something going on there. Maybe my router is 'intelligently' limiting it or something. Anyways thanks for the suggestion!

    So, I upgraded my computer a little and the new motherboard had a realtek card. Been a long time since I've had anything but intel. It was sooo bad. I've been messing with it since yesterday trying each setting and go back and check again when I find something that changes things... I'm sure many of you know how slow and painstaking that can be lol But I finally got it! if you look at my profile my slowest and and my fastest speeds are today lol

  20. So, yeah. There have been so many people folding that it's really hard to get work units. I suppose that's a good problem? If you leave it running, you'll get something occasionally. The retry algorithm backs off exponentially, so it can take a while. This is a pretty common sight:

    Speed differences

    OOOHHH, you're not just using DNS, you're using Cloudflare's premium offering WARP+ -- which uses a feature called Argo Smart Routing. Sorry I didn't realize that at first. In that case... yeah, you're speed is genuinely affected. You're going to get better speed because Cloudflare is making your connection take a better, less congested and more direct route to the hosts you connect to. Please point out which result you're talking about. I didn't see any of your recent results with a variance that high. note: There's a setting in advanced settin

  23. If they continue to bill you for service that is not provided, it can get their attention if you file a complaint with the FCC: https://consumercomplaints.fcc.gov/hc/en-us Some states have consumer protection bureaus that you can use as well, but mine refers broadband issues to the FCC. In the past filing complaints seems to have attracted some attention.

  27. Yes... and no. You still need to shoot me a PM, just say, "I'd like to change my username to ___________". I have a program on my end that queries the database and outputs manual SQL commands that I then run against the database server. I input two (before / after) usernames and it gives me all the commands to run to make the change... cut 'n paste from there. It's a much quicker process than before but I'd still like to make it automated. At most a few people a month request name changes, if I get more requests it will justify the time expense it will take me to mak

  28. I have been a customer since November 2019. They are horrible, honestly. I have called twice a week or more since installed. I have had my modem replaced( which they wanted me to pay for shipping and I absolutely refused. Why would I pay more for service I'm not getting.) because they said I had data leaks. I would have nothing connected, and was losing .5-1gig in a 24 hour period. While on the phone with tech support, he saw me loose .3gb in an hour on the phone. During bonus time...we are good to get 1mb and maybe 3mb at best...because we download at that time. At 2am we can have 14mbps

  29. Wow... look at this test result. I pay for 400 Down and my Avg Down is around 448. I snuck one by their speed throttle mechanism. At least now I know my neighborhood and facility wiring etc. can handle 1 gig. How this happened I don't know, but here is my theory. Based on the last thing I did, which was manipulating my so called router to grab it's Ip address from the host's DHCP but ignore everything else that comes from the Host's DHCP -- my router finally picked up DNS from 1.1.1.1 I proved my so called router was using the new DNS server via the cool tool on this site (DNS lookup or s

  31. 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

    would a repeater help me?

    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

  35. I suspect the hard disk is the bottleneck. Most BitTorrent clients fetch random parts of a file from seeders and peers, whereas FTP and HTTP clients generally fetch files sequentially from start to finish. This means that with just a handful of BitTorrent peers, the hard disk will be constantly seeking for the random pieces the peer clients request. 31MBs (250Mbps) seems very good for a high end hard disk. Most consumer hard disks will struggle to even deliver 10MB/s randomly seeking non-stop, e.g. try copying a 5GB file from a hard disk while running a virus scan on it at the

    Hi Cable i'm actually quite surprised. Its been around for many many years I thought you would have tried it for sure. I installed it yesterday, around noonish (not sure where you are, but I'm in EST) it feels to me like its slightly slower, but it seems a little more stable if that makes sense. So the overall is slower, I don't think its more then 30-50mbps but there is less moderation.. And again, maybe its all in my freakin head LOL Its so hard to get accurate test results on such things just due to variances that exist regardless. So, I've been running it since yesterday, I'll unin

I'm sorry I thought I posted my car is the #333 I'm also the #333 in truck. It is kinda Ironic how I had to give up positions as to not wreck the #40 car 5-6 different times for his driving tactics then he ends up winning and I get 7th.

    Time discrepancy of 1 hour

    I notice that the time shown in My Results shows the correct time (for my location) of the individual tests. When I export the result (to .CSV and then as .xlsx) the generated timestamp in Column A shows the time as one hour later. This must be some bug to do with daylight saving? I do not need to know the reason, but I would like you to fix it. I have attached relevant screen shots. Thank you. MarcelVH. 2020-05-07-Time-Discrepancy-in TestMyNet.docx

May even get a smaller one to keep in my office. It will be handy for working with guitars sometimes too, depending on what I'm doing to said guitar of course lol The case looks fantastic.

  48. It’s a pain to have to go thru this stuff I know. I suggest you call them instead of emailing. Be polite but persistent. If you don’t get satisfaction from talking to their first level support person, ask to speak to a supervisor. I assume you have some kind of problem ticket number that your emails are posting to.

But for today, on this thread, I simply want to show the difference in performance. The black arrow is where (in time) I turned it off. I changed no other variables.

    Who testmy.net is

    I'll work on a page that cites examples for you. They're here, just not compiled nicely for you. I just go off of what many people tell me. There are hundreds of stories (just that I've heard) of people who test perfectly fine using other speed tests and testmy.net reports the correct... much lower number. They email me, often by starting out BLAMING testmy.net. I tell them to trust the results and they usually email me back later, "testmy.net was right." I get blamed whenever someone is slow. The other speed tests misrepresent the numbers so people think I'M the one who's wro
