  1. So where should I now post to complain, get ideas as to WTF is up with my speeds lately?

    I am all over the place, supposedly xfincrudty (aka (crapcast) upgraded my speed from 105 to 150 

    but I cannot get that speed nor do I think 20% and to make matters wors I jump from say 80 to 50 to possibly 120

    then back to 50. I seem to do better with the multi thread or mercury tests then linear.

    I have tried all I can think of changing you name it in the TCP Optimizer.

    I even broke out the old Ethernet cable and strung it to hardwired me into the gateway and still Amazingly fast and consistently non repeatable speed results

    I am even up at 3 AM PST to see if my neighbors could be the issue.

    Next I was thinking about disconnecting all the other cables from node and see if I alone connected has any bearing on my speeds??

    Or is that illegal to disconnect them for a few min to test??

    I mean who is up at 3 AM besides me anyway right?

  2. LOL I thought I was getting this great speed, Then I found this email sent 10-30-15 stating that supposedly Comcast (kindness of their hearts) decided to upgrade my speed from 105 to 150 Mbps

    So actually my test results Suck A&& I have no Idea what the percentage but add 45 Mbps to the equation and the % has to drop faster then Obama's credibility

  3. I cannot remember if this 88.95% of advertised speed is a good # to have when testing.

    I seem to think if it was 90% or around there that was considered good but I am not positive so I wanted to ask.

    I am supposedly on a 105 Xfinity tier or Blast as they call it and I recently have been close to 90% of that some times over some under

    but close

  4. Something strange I noticed now, It seems to work fine on upload tests doing them alone but now when I attempt a download test by itself I get the Aw Snap error.

    SO now it does it when I use combined or download alone but not with upload.

    Also when it does it on combined it appears it only does the download section as I see no upload results when I go and open the results page under my profile.

    It is almost as if the chrome browser has a default time limit before it assumes web page is not responding 

    anyone know if there is a setting where I can extend time or disable that feature ??

  5. Ok to answer your post #7 it was every single time I ran the combined test.

    Now and Just now I ran the Combined Test from San Fran and it did not do the Aw Snap.

    It worked perfectly.

    I will try all the west coast servers and see if I get the error still

    The Fremont and the San Jose I believe it is the top west coast test both just gave me the aw snap error

    Dam now all three west coast servers are giving me that Aw Snap error.

    I did get one complete test in combined both down and up  before the errors started though.

    Strange went to try it on Edge and It will not let me sign in. it just pops back to sign in page.

    But it worked just fine with Edge In case you were curious

  6. I do have the ability, I have a Creative SB X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro USB  as my On Board Realtek had issues and I could not use the enhancements so I went USB.

    I have not tried connecting it to my 5.1 System lately as I use it mostly for my Link to my Pro Audio mixer and system.

    I will try that and see what happens though.

    I have noticed with Edge that it is not compatible with Norton Identity Safe so anyone who has been using that like I do and have came dependent on it remembering log ins and passwords will be lost unless they also  install a separate Browser.

    I use Chrome but have been noticing for some time that even if I only have one page open in chrome in the task manager there are at min 5 instances of chrome running which I cannot see as very efficient.

    Though I must say I have constantly been getting much higher speed tests with edge then I ever did with chrome or IE 11

  7. Well so far this seems to be a better system, at least the speed tests are much faster and my wireless seems much faster using both.

    Never have I gotten over 100Mbps using the wireless connection until after the upgrade.

    I have found that using chrome like I used to now is a pain and it keeps saying the connection is dead for some reason.

  8. YA, Ok.  I was just thinking it may be a better test or have better results not having to deal with whatever limits Safari coudl put on the iPad 4.

    I was wanting to check my Wifi and my AT&T 4g LTE to compare.

    I can do that to with the Safari I suppose, 

    New to Ipad never used the Safari thing yet.

    Matter of fact haven't used hardly anything yet except music and the planets app. 

  9. Howdy I seen ookla I believe is the name has an iPad app for speed tests I was curious if there was one for this site or how one with say an iPad or Android Tablet would speed test from  this site.

    I do not trust other test sites of any kind and only use this one for accurate testing.

    I do use others so I can laugh at how full of BS they are with the speed results but never for accurate speed results. 

  10. Just a FYI, I have done this same thing more times then Anyone ever should have to ( tell the ISP their "Speedtest Site" Sucks @#$.

    I have argued with technicians until I was about 1 straw away from a homicide case with me as the only person of interest, I get the same thing each time that this site (Testmy.net) is incorrect and their site is correct, Finally I figured the way to shut them down at the first letter of their sentence of BS and Lies.

    Thanks to Testmy.net I have a immense amount of test history data.

    I can pull data from quite awhile back ( sorry I do not know exactly how long) and I can then say I don't give a rats @#$ what they recommend or think is the accurate test site I can show I was getting this speed at this date and This speed at this date and then for no reason I had this issue say when my modem went south and was allowing me (back at date of story) 20 Mbps Down and like 700Kbps up when it should of been 5 Mbps up. 

    Which in reality really messes with your down as you cannot reply as fast as you shoudl so everything is delayed longer.

    I personally hate dealing with any Tech from any ISP as they have tried to blame anything and everything for the issue other then their own system or hardware.

    I have been told maybe my computer is outdated back in 2011 when I just purchased the ROG ASUS G73-SW it was the Top of teh top at that time.

    They have blamed my internal house coaxial ( Big mistake before looking into my account) I had the Extra fee in case of issues that they would replace wiring free so I made them replace every last inch and every splitter etc.

    If I remember correctly ( which lately is really a stretch remembering who I am and why I am here) 

    If you can achieve 90% of the paid for speed I believe they consider that awesome, Maybe it has changed since speeds have went up so much last few years but I think personally 95% or greater should be what we are entitled to.

    I mean if I purchased a race motor and it was stated to produce say 1000HP and 750 Ft/Lb torque and when I did a dyno on it I was only getting 900 HP and 675 Ft/Lb of torque I woudl be highly Upset.

    Anyway just thought I woudl share my 2 cents or as long as this was I guess 11 cents worth
