  1. You mentioned that your TV is a smart TV. What kind of performance do you get when using the TV wirelessly without the i don’t have any experience with IPTV.
  2. What’s your advertised speeds ?
  3. There’s more than one. We’re not on the site continuously.
  4. @CA3LE I like having the dark mode option. Thanks. I noticed that on the Results page, the Light/Dark selector link at the bottom of the page isn’t there. It’s there on the Download and Upload pages. The date range selector on the Results is pretty cool too. The downside is when you want to display say 6 months of results, you have to scroll the calendar when you used to be able to just enter a number of days. Not sure if you can come up with an easy way to allow the user to just enter the number of days.
  5. I don’t see any test results for you yet here at TestMy. Run some tests here.
  6. It is if you turn WiFi off.
  7. Good idea Sean. I was going to suggest trying a phone or tablet on WiFi.
  8. One cause could be that those people at work are mostly not on your Mediacom so the bandwidth load at Mediacom is much more severe after they get home from work. You could ask them to switch you to a different path in their equipment. And ask them if they have a bandwidth pinchpoint in your local area. Gathering the test data is good to have on hand when talking to them. Be patient but persistent with them.
  9. There’s an Export button right below the graph on the Results page - link to that is in the upper right section of the home page (my results)
  10. I’m still not sure what numbers you’re looking at. Where do you see them?
  11. What page are you on where you see those numbers like 61/29/11?
  12. Interesting. I certainly would never have thought of that to fix a stuttering PC. Isn’t it amazing how software which in theory can never execute but one way over and over fails to do that so often.
  13. I don’t see any TMN Test data for you
  14. My wife and I watched the movie A River Runs Through It again the other day. Montana sure is beautiful.
  15. Select the Results tab and choose the number of days you want to view
  16. I’ve got one work PC at home that uses gobs of CPU%. It’s a Win7 Machine. I believe a significant portion of the issue was caused by one (or more) of the Windows updates last October - December. In my particular case, I hadn’t used the PC in a few months, so when I fired it up, there were a dozen or so SW (Windows and Office) updates that were “waiting to install” and the windows update services we’re eating up over 50%. The machine was consistently running between 75% and 100%. When I’d move the mouse or drag a window, it would flatline at 100%. Out IT guy helped the installation process by “focusing my computer on the install process”. Not sure what he did, but I believe he ended some processes in Task Manager. Not sure which ones. i went online and found quite a few discussions about high CPU usage people were having after the 4th quarter Windows and Office updates. Found another article that said a corrupted mouse driver was causing the high CPU usage. Seems there’s a lot of possibilities. Im a Mac user so I can tell you the safe way to go about correcting things. On a Mac, if you boot up in Safe Mode, it clears out issues. Perhaps on a PC it does something similar. my work IT guy said it was probably time to upgrade my 8 yr old Win7 pro laptop to a new one. It’s still running at 25% cpu usage just sitting there doing nothing. My 10 yr old work desktop PC running Win7 pro however sits at 5-10% CPU sitting there doing nothing. Seems like the laptop could be “fixed”.
  17. When you’re watching movies wirelessly, and it’s buffering, are you on your laptop, or a smart TV, or a Roku - what kind of device are you watching on? What type of wireless ESS device are you using: is there a wireless router and a separate modem, or an all-in-one modem/router? How far is it from your laptop to the wireless modem-router? Are there a lot of walls between your viewing device and the wireless point?
  18. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/266135-31-cleaning-computer-compressor just don’t let any small wires or ribbon cables vibrate or move around while you’re blowing it out. It’ll fatigue the wires/cables and potentially crack them where they’re attached to something that’s fixed in place. you can use a small soft bristled paint brush to dust with to loosen up the dust before you blow it out.
  19. What speed plan are you on for down/up ?
  20. Amazing they’re actually really helpful. Are they in an alternate universe?
  21. What does your provider say the max upload speed should be. What do they advertise as their upload speed for the plan that you’re on?
  22. That sure helped a lot. I only have a 200/10 Mbps plan, so I don’t know what things make a system reach significantly above what you’re getting now. Your recent plots look a lot like what I see with my system using Spectrum (Time Warner).
  23. What’s your plan download max advertised as? i noticed on Nov 18, four of your tests were close to 200, and the rest very low. We’re all the tests taken on the same machine? Are you testing via wireless or Ethernet. If wireless, see if things behave the same using Ethernet if you can
