What gives? Testmy.net never goes over 1MBps but..


Recommended Posts

Well you see, Testmy.net (Test Server 1/2) Never goes above 1Meg/s. Always consistent and straight forward. Sometimes 990 but 80% of the time consistent 8.19mbps.


Speakeasy at ATL, GA always exceeds this.. varied from 8.2mbps to about 8.4mbps and always above 1MBps.


Sorry if it seems like I keep making posts and griping. But I'm OCD when it comes to my equipment and I get the most out of everything I own. I'm fine tuning for consistensy and  performance without sacraficing stability and reliability. I know most of you would say "OMGWTFBBQ your connection is already out performing the rated speeds". I know I can get more out of her than that. Here are my settings as far as the registry goes. Right now the router is out of the picture and I'm hardwired.

Please review my settings and even the smallest tweaks that you may think will give me that extra 10kbps, let me know. I would greatly appreciate it. I'll be as helpfull in the future to return the favor.

It is most likely due to the fact that our servers are in Texas, and the speakeasy server you tested from is in Georgia.  Where do you live?  Have you tried some of our mirrors:  http://www.testmy.net/tools/mirrors.php

Well that "could" be it but I play a server located in Houston, TX and they also have a bw test and I score about the same on it as I do with GA. Http://www.uogamers.com. Yeah, I play UO.

Turn Off ya Firewalls  ..then test again...

U will be Surprised...

No firewalls here. I have no use for firewalls. I'm a firm believer that if you keep your computing enviroment tight and tidy, and use a fairly small amount of common sense and have a basic understanding of networking, firewalls arent required, along with antivirus software. Thats all one huge money hype, IMHO. The only thing I require is Ad-Aware. :D
