  1. Very nice. Thank you, CA3LE! ?
  2. Well guys, it appears that Kaspersky may very well be the problem. Though my speeds are pretty bad tonight, when I had Kaspersky disabled the issue wasn't there, and when I re-enabled it the issue was back. So, now I know what's causing it. Thanks for the help! I certainly appreciate it. BTW, CA3LE, an odd thing. When you click on Copy URLs on a share results page, both URLs copy. I can't copy just one or the other. When I try to, both are included. It's odd. When I try to copy just one or the other, this happens automatically...
  3. I've tried it with different browsers (Chrome, Edge (old and new), Brave and Firefox, and it's the same. It's also the same with my desktop AND laptop. However, I do have Kaspersky, as you'll see in my reply to Sean's post. I'll try some tests with Kaspersky disabled (or paused) to see if there is a difference, though there does seem to be with the two I ran today.
  4. That's very interesting. I do, in fact, use Kaspersky Security Cloud Free. I had to switch to it when the Webroot I'd been using for nearly six years started causing lag issues with both my Windows 10 desktop and laptop. I'll try running a few tests later on this evening while Kaspersky is completely disabled/turned off and see what happens. I tried two tests with it off just now and, while one did experience just a small amount of the issue, the other didn't at all. Maybe pausing protection will be the same, as it would be easier to just pause when I run tests instead of shutting the whole thing down. Thanks for the suggestion!
  5. It's interesting, but it's doing it now with the old test, as well. I had tried finding the old test to use again a few months back, but I couldn't find the option, so I thought it had been done away with. I knew there the option had been, but I couldn't find it at the bottom anymore. I'll keep using the old one in the hopes that it stops doing it again. It looks like it started happening with my second Jan 11th test.
  6. This one I decided not to delete in order to show an example of the more common, skewed results I get.
  7. With the new test, I've noticed that, very often, the test will start part way in. What I mean is, after choosing the test size, the screen changes to the test in progress, and it's always 10% or more into the test when this happens. And that initial part that it seems to skip over has much higher speeds. It skews my overall test average result because of it. The old test hardly ever did this, but the new one does it nearly every time. Is it because of the high latency with HughesNet? Is the old test still available to use? It was much more accurate due to not doing this. I actually have to run a number of tests to get one that has only a small amount of this skewing, and I then delete from My Results all of the ones that are worse. For example...
  8. Ah. That makes sense. I appreciate it.
  9. I realize it may be a pointless question, but what does TID stand for? I know TIP is Test In Progress, but I can't figure out TID. Thanks.
  10. It does. I completely forgot about being able to copy it from the first box. Thanks for the help. ? Have a great 4th!
  11. CA3LE, First, if you're American, happy 4th of July! I hope you have a great holiday! Regarding the title, in the new version of the site there is no place to copy the TID code from so that you can combine an upload test with a download test to create a graphic. On the old site, you could click on the TID for each test, then copy the non clickable TID code in that popup window, but the new site doesn't have that. The only way I've found to do this is to click share on the particular upload test, then copy the TID code from the URL, then go back and click share on the download test I want to combine it with, paste it in the second box and combine it. It's just a bit of a pain to have to do it this way. Or, and I missing something and there is, in fact, an easier way to copy the TID from an upload test so that I can combine it with a download test? Thanks.
  12. I like the new design. Great job, CA3LE!
  13. RoyE, Are you streaming Netflix in HD? If so, are you making sure to turn off (or pause) the Video Data Saver? If not, you can do so through the Video section in the HughesNet Usage Meter. Conversely, you can lower the definition to SD or lower, which I would recommend, as streaming in HD is a very data intensive activity, and once your initial 20 days of unlimited data ends (see the HughesNet Welcome email), your data usage is going to start being counted normally, and you're going to burn through your data very quickly with HD streaming.
  14. HughesNet. $69.99 plan price (plus $14.99 equipment lease fee and taxes).
  15. So is it your suggestion to avoid those things in order to "improve WiFi connectivity even with internet basic plans", or are you asking for help to improve your "WiFi connectivity"? *3rd party devices/routers Keep in mind that, if one does not have a proprietary WiFi router from their plan provider they must connect a 3rd party router in order to utilize WiFi. *movie apps that require 3 to 6 Mbps internet speed If one's provider doesn't supply adequate speed they won't be able to stream movies, regardless of a WiFi or LAN connection. *simultaneous use of wifi from 6 or more devices Wholeheartedly agree, as the speed will be divided between devices, and not necessarily evenly. And if using the 2.4Ghz band, the WiFi itself could be a choke point, depending on the plan's speed. * unmindful of radio frequencies (i.e. 2.4ghz/5ghz) or lack of info as its reach among others With the 5Ghz band this is normally not an issue, though its range is considerably less than the 2.4Ghz band.
