New guy here, new help!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm trying to get streaming to work flawlessly with Twitch.tv, but when I tried to stream using Open Broadcasting Software it shows that I have dropped frames. I thought my upload speed was great, but after some research I found out that I should test my speed at testmy.net instead of speedtest to get an accurate reading. I did another test on speedtest and got 60 Mbps and 27 Mbps for download and upload.


Normally, I actually get 35 Mbps, so I'm not sure what's going on there, but I want to figure out the other problem which is I'm getting really slow speeds here. 3.4 Mbps download and 1.8 Mbps upload here, that's 85% and 68% slower than the host average. What the hell is going on here? Why am I not even getting 10% of what I thought I was getting? Everything seems fine for me which is why I'm even more confused. If you need any more information, please ask.

Okay, so I did a multithreaded download test and got around 26Mbps, but that's still 1/3 of what I should be getting. My upload test was still crap, around 2-4 Mbps from three different servers. Which is as I said, 10% of what I should be getting.


*edit* Also, I'm considering replacing the router, do I need to replace the modem too? Does it make a difference in speed if I plug the ethernet to the wall or the router? (Speaking of which how exactly does the wall outlet for ethernet work?) And I'm looking at this router http://www.amazon.com/Medialink-Wireless-N-Broadband-Internal-Antennas/dp/B00A3YN0Z0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1385092264&sr=8-2&keywords=router

wait what?  you have a router and modem with verizon ? verizon should only have 1...unless your running more than 4 computers wired & need a second router.  Should be an Actiontec product, like the one im using. https://www.actiontec.com/41.html


Im also on the 75/35 plan. I get 85/29 most sites, ill take a test for Testmy.net: 


Auto Test: Multithread: 



Seperate using Large files: Single thread Im assuming.

Take it as you will, i just provide the info - I don't want to " downgrade" one site or the other. I'm just showing the variance to hopefully help your conundrum.
