Report Can't get ANY speedtest to run. Error produced. in HELP! With Tests Posted May 2, 2009 Thanks for all your replies. Yes, I've used other browsers like FireFox and Mozilla before but they have had their own problems too, like not being accepted or working properly at certain websites such as banking and Windows Update as well as others. I'm in no way a loyalist to ANY particular browser, as they all have had their problems, it's just that Internet Explorer is SUPPOSED to work at more sites than any other browser. I've looked at all my browser settings and all seem to be correctly configured. However, I, like many others out there, am beginning to believe that Internet Explorer just might be haunted! It seems to have a mind of it's own sometimes. As for "funny business on the lines", that's a very valid point. I've been with Verizon DSL for several years now and when it's working, it's fine but since they've been pushing Fios, they've all but abandoned their copper DSL customers as far as maintenance and customer service is concerned. When their geeks are working on the system at the central office, or on the wires in the field, my service is spotty at best and their customer service reps have no clue that their own technicians are even working on the system. Many times this has led to customer service run-arounds and wild goose-chases that have literally cost me DAYS on the telephone and repeated checking and re-checking of my own equipment over and over again. During the past Christmas holidays, BOTH my phone AND internet were useless for 10 DAYS due to severe hum and static on the line. 10 days to dispatch a tech to fix their own wires! Then, they want to sell me Fios. I ask them "if Verizon can't keep something as simple as copper wire up and running, how the hell can I expect Verizon to keep something as sophisticated as fiber optics working properly? They can't service their existing long-time customers but they're pushing the "new" Fios in the hope of getting "fresh meat" for their fiber marketing efforts. So, as for "funny business on the lines", there's no doubt there's some of that going on but it's very hard to prove. I WAS going to switch to Fios when it became available last year but NOW, I think I'd rather use two tin cans and a string! Anyhow, until I can get this speedtest issue figured out, I guess I'll just need to log in first before I can use it. So much for a quick and convenient test of line speed.
