  1. Use this website as your control see if you can find an add-on or extension to track page load times and wipe your cache before you check
  2. That definitely is acceptable have you tried getting a tech to come out during peak hours? Everytime I had a tech cone out and try to run and ookla test I explained to him how and why speedtest.net can't be trusted and a then showed him testmy.net and would show him my results
  3. Very happy to hear your performance has improved
  4. You need to somehow get to higher tier tech support
  5. I had very good luck with a distro on an amd machine a good while back but because it wasn't Intel hardware I was limited in my software choices it was extremely stable while I used it I eventually had to stop due to it not supporting what I needed to do
  6. Sounds like it also I should have been more clear only WiFi based connections are effected when using legacy devices Ethernet devices are completely seperate and not effected
  7. Check and make sure your network adapter is not set to half duplex or 10mbps mode but auto detect or full duplex if your using wired and make sure your WiFi router isn't using wireless b also note if you connect a legacy wireless b device to your router your router will slow all WiFi connections down to that rate while it is connected
  8. Glad to hear it got fixed thanks for posting back
  9. Sounds hopeful and yeah let us know how it plays out love hearing success stories
  10. Run an auto speed test at https://testmy.net/auto till he gets there the longer the better and do short intervals so he can see the fluctuation if he even hints that it is our servers tell him we are hosted in softlayer datacenters and they are some of the most powerful datacenters in the world with more then 20Gbps of network infrastructure and our servers run on multiple dedicated 1Gbps lines you can read more at https://testmy.net/legit-speed-test.php even he should know what that means and what kind of traffic it would take to saturate our lines And sorry for the crammed messages I've been on my phone all day. Out with the family
  11. Yeah there is some serious inconsistency in your upload rate and good that is exactly what I was going to recommend you do when I had issues it took them about a month to finally fix it during that time I had 2-3 tech's per week at my house i was even learning their names and they rewired my drop and house multiple times they changed out countless connections and splitters tried different attenuators and finally I got an actual maintenance tech to come out and check the local node
  12. Well first and foremost streaming at a 3k bitrate is all well and fine but it also depends on what resolution your streaming I'm assuming at least 720p maybe even 1080p? back when I used to stream I streamed 1080p at 2.2k bitrate and it required a solid 3-4Mbps upload rate from what I read you need somewhere around 10Mbps upload to upload a 3k with a decent audio quality aswell at 1080p your upload should be plenty fast enough... The first thing I would do is bypass your router and connect your streaming computer directly to your modem and retest this will be a process of elimination so bare with us and if it turns out its your isp the only solution is to call and complain daily till its fixed I've had issues like that before aswell and my isp swore it was my issue when it turns out it was a bad amplifier at their local node in my neighborhood
  13. lol that is usually how it goes ain't it?
  14. true the printer should not need it but i've had much better success on my home network having my printer using a static address then a dynamic one because then i don't get the occassional cannot communicate with the printer messages and have to restart the printer
  15. hotspotshield routes all your traffic through one of their servers as it does for any other person using hotspotshield at that moment so what you end up with especially during peak hours are very congested servers that can offer you very little bandwidth once their servers available bandwidth drops below your max you'll see side effects such as it feeling like its crawling you'd probably be better off getting a paid proxy then a free one if that sort of thing bothers you or your trying to stream while using it
  16. Some stock head units will do this now too like the ones ford using with their Microsoft sync systems
  17. Even if you don't feel like getting a new head unit you can always use a tape adapter to play your mp3 player or iPod through your current stereo
  18. Does it need to be portable? If not then I'd go with the iMac
  19. As long as you buy hardware osx has the drivers for you can install vanilla osx on it no problem
  20. Windows can be kind of funky with multiple displays sometimes I've had that happen countless times windows not being the size or position I last left them in. Corrupted data most likely
