  1. Hi a little update still inflated high results. As I mention early the double speed using HN test of 3.8Mbps I've become a victum of congestion after 21 month of fast service. Prime time 5pm cst until midnight a sad 330-438 at posting is unacceptable. My motto ~never do today what can be put off until tomorrow~ went with my neighbor to Cellcom, returned with a demo for her home wireless modem is seeing 1Mbps ping 0.19ms 50GB monthly cap for the lovely price $42 (includes sales tax). Yep tomorrow will return for mine and sign on the line guaranteed price 2 years. Testing begins, hiding in plain site I didn't see the light ! I'll be back with stored tests here of my new experience. WB contract is fullfilled HN has 3 months remaining, so saving $128 monthly is sweet... Marsh
  2. Please understand the only reason is to make TMN more accurate for tests, none other. Otherwise you venture into trouble on other web sites not even loading. http://www.systemcontrolcenter.com/ Click the little guy in the bar going across screen (next to what is) brings up the left side panel. Turbo page -> expands to Control -> Enable/Reset. Choice is yours, remember how you got there and don't forget how to get Enable back. Not worth my effort anymore with TMN as Hughes speed test remains accurate. Unsubscriping from thread...
  3. Thanks Sir, that certainly corrected MY wrong high tests of 8.4Mbps, you win the prize. Now back to normal whatever that is to me... Confirmed using Hughes speed test and will late tonight time a 118MB dedicated server file when the others are sleeping.
  4. Hi for an update, TMN speed tests remains the same with a consistent, never varies much, now at post time 10.9, 8.6, 8.7, 8.4. 8.3, 8.5 Mbps using the 12MB load.1pm cst. Wild Blue remains accurate at 1.116Mbps and but later will take a serious drop in speed. ------------------------------- My base standard has to be Hughes speed test site always gives me accurate tests, confirmed many times with a 118MB with FileHippo "dedicated" servers. Hughes 3.418Mbps WB 1.116Mbps ---------------------------------------------- My conclusion the inaccurate tests begain when Hughes doubled our speeds, before here was getting 2.9Mbps almost always. Happy birthday to (me at 64) just another day, my neighbor is cooking a choice cut beef tenderloin, I don't even like party's. Best to you all... Marsh
  5. Hi zeddlar I see a lot of electronics technician in you to find a better answer of "why". Still in my blood after 10 years retirement, a lifetime's worth of experience. A motto of mine ~whatever works for you stay with it~ haha someday I will find the way to post a picture (avatar) here and there... Marsh
  6. Hi zeddlar I believe Hughes speed test is the only accurate one, besides using a dedicated server to download and time the download, one needs to be sure of the connection to be accurate. Logging in with Hughes 1st, now 3501kb/s and then immediately testing with WB 1166kb/s. I have to believe and use as the standard, as WB is always twice as slow and at times 4x which is sad. TMN shows WB at 1330kb/s which has been rock solid at true speeds. Hughes 8430kbps is definitely wrong. Only takes seconds to switch WiFi routers from my easy chair. I can live with that, only wanted CA3LE to know. All that matters to me is Hughes giving us an early Xmas present proven to me, speed and FAP. Marsh
  7. Hi, I asked a local friend with the exact same equipment Hughes 9000 modem and he see's the same. Hi CA3LE, I only wanted you to know Hughes newest changes affected your tests. So here are his for what it's worth , suggests I'm not alone ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date & Time arrow down Test Size Connection Speed Wed Dec 21 2011 @ 12:50:02 pm Wed Dec 21 2011 @ 12:47:03 pm 14.3 MB 8.87 Mbps 1.11 MB/s Wed Dec 21 2011 @ 12:43:17 pm 7.4 MB 8.68 Mbps 1.08 MB/s Wed Dec 21 2011 @ 12:38:50 pm 69 MB 9.94 Mbps 1.24 MB/s Wed Dec 21 2011 @ 12:06:59 pm 69 MB 4.5 Mbps 576 kB/s Fri Dec 16 2011 @ 12:15:55 pm 23.6 MB 11.72 Mbps 1.47 MB/s Thu Dec 15 2011 @ 5:37:44 pm 6.8 MB 5.37 Mbps 687 kB/s
  8. Hi mudmanc4 Sorry means Merry Christmas In northern Wisconsin we might not have a white Christmas in my lifetime ever. Happy New Year, ah the eve is my 64th birthday, just another day of the week.
  9. Hi Zeddlar Thanks for the quick response as I had e-mail notification via Yahoo. Took your advise skipping Smartest and went with 12MB and then repeated try of 25MB, results were the same, haha 8-9 MB gives me a warm feeling anyways, past few months have been a Xmas gift with Hughes at no charge, Wrigly gum said it best Doublemint double the fun with speed and FAP. Besides Stat Bar I also use Win gadget called Network Meter to see my download speed in real time. WB is now at 1.3Mbps, and when logging into Hughes 1st and then switch over WB, to compare and see that 2-3 X speed slower. Merry Xmas
  10. Hi, I don't how any software could be affecting the tests as Wild Blue remains the same. Both laptops are showing the same, 1 with Win 7 64bit, the other Vista 64bit. Here's my link...https://testmy.net/memberstats/ Please note WB for side by tests is quite sad. My plan is up to 1.7 Mbps then Hughes doubled our speed to 3.4 Mbps and now odd for 3 days for a consistent 4 Mbps, using Hughes speed test page for the reference, unsure if other users are seeing the 600 Kbps increase yet, no mention at the community. They also doubled our FAP really a 2 day rollover so I bank to get up to 1050MB, lucky you without a FAP and insanely fast. Yes I have downloaded from Filehippo with their dedicated servers and with size/time calculation was close using a 118MB file. Now I'm not complaining only curious. Nice programming job CA3LE, all the other test sites don't like satellite and always wrong. Common knowledge that only Hughes and TMN are the standards to use, TMN gets a lot of referrals. Marsh
  11. Up until a few days ago TMN was slower than my reference to Hughes speed test site. Now showing 8Mbps as before was 2.9Mbps, is very wrong. Hughes was about 3.4 but now again they increased our speed is a consistent 4Mbps. I also have WB nothing changed with their service, a slow 1Mbps. For what it's worth...
  12. Raises hand to see how close dial up can come to Wild Blue comedy act Nothing surprises me anymore
  13. Hi, thanks for the Google translate link, guess I forgot about the power of Google. Lithuanian detected, off to Google to find out where in this small world is this, with the internet. But to post here would have required a mail confirmation in English. Btw as a 50 year ham radio operator English is the required language, no others are allowed, universal... Marsh
  14. By long ago past experience, never will I log into that site again. Major spam etc, no thanks. Agree -> I think something is wrong with the Frappr server. it doesn't wanna load the link for me. <- Blessings in disguise...
  15. Hi General, a little tough on the new poster, but I'm just a newbie. A great local friend Bill, a dog man for the 7th Cav has named all his German Shepherds dogs "Cav", everyone of them, 2 Silver stars, 4 purple hearts, put up for the Congressional Medal of Honor but denied. Another local friend John was a radio man for the 7th Cav and called in air support when the captain went down, 2 silvers also put up for the MOH and denied. Crazy Andy of the Wolf Hounds, list can go on with us 100% service connected, mine is Agent Orange Vietnam the 3 tours 69-71, but I felt no need, but if my Wild Blue goes bad in the future, might try that haha
