TMN Veteran

TMN Veteran (8/10)



  1. I recently replaced my Nighthawk with the Asus RT-AC3100, so far I absolutely love the 3100. It has so many features that the Nighthawk doesn't. My two favorite features are the Bandwidth Monitor / Traffic Monitor and the built in VPN support.
  2. Hey CA3LE, Been quite a while since I've been on the forums! Anyways wanted to see if you had some input on my situation. So a few months ago I got a speed increase from 50/5 to 300/20. Before I got the speed increase I was always able to test above 50mbps on TMN. I have never been able to achieve 300mbps on any TMN official server. The only TMN server that I can get close to my advertised speed is dallas4.testmt.net if I use any other server even a Dallas one I only get about half of my advertised speeds. I am able to achieve above 300mbps on other HTML 5 based speed tests such as DSLReports, Speedtest.net BETA (HTML 5 version) and speedof.me On DSLReports I selected a Dallas server hosted by Softlayer and I just got this result I tested TMN right after on the dallas4.testmy.net server and got like 190mbps down. I am using a hardwired connection when I run the tests.
  3. The average compiles all of your speed tests taken and gives you a median of those.
  4. My favorite thing about is being able to extend your desktop by using your apple tv, turns your flat screen into a second monitor, very cool!

  6. All the equipment I have ever gotten from Time Warner has been junk, even the cable boxes. I've always just purchased my own modem. Especially now that they are trying to charge you $6 / month if you rent it from them.
  7. I have to agree with you CA3LE I didn't want to shell out the $200 but I have to say it was well worth it.
  8. What router are you currently using? I just picked up the new Netgear Nighthawk, I must say it's a beast. Range is really good which is my favorite thing about it.
  9. If you don't travel much I would go with the iMac. Its large screen is great for movies and doing work, etc.. On the other hand you can't beat the Retina Display, not to mention the flash storage. Also you'd be able to tote this with you when you travel and such. If it was me... i'd go with the MacBook Pro w/ Retina
  10. Hi all, I haven't posted in a loooooong time! Anyways what kind of router are you currently using? If you can post a pic of your network setup. I am using a Linksys / Cisco e4200. I like it, the performance is great and range is good as well.
  11. Well in the past year I recently moved to Smith Mountain Lake (http://smith-mountain-lake.com/) It's great living on a lake, waking up and hearing fish jump and ducks quack. But... I had to switch ISPs. WHICH SUCKS. I used to get almost 20MBPS down from Cox. Now with verizon DSL. I'm getting 2-MBPS.
  12. The forums are looking great! It's been quite a while since i've been around! Things have changed a lot! In a good way it seems! I am going to try and be more active. Keep up the good work Testmy.net!
  13. It's about time, it's ridiculous how they sue people for massive amounts of money.
  14. What happened to www.testmymobile.net ?
  15. I don't know if it's just me or what, but I have noticed that Cox in my area (Roanoke, Virginia) has dramatically improved their performance. About a month ago I noticed that all my speeds were actually stable. When I have run download speed tests they have been very consistent. It's been quite a while since I have seen my speed drop below 11.5 mbps. Has anyone else noticed any improvements?
