Why is latency/ping at such odds with other tests?

Is it possible to get the topology of your network, in other words:

 

I hope this is what you mean. Crude but gets the job done ... again I hope!!! Oh, the reason for the slave and the Ethernet not directly to the HP Compaq is the wireless is being used by a Roku about 10 feet away. No, they are all off during all tests. In fact I try to have everything using bandwidth off during tests. topography.thumb.png.23eb98642401d442c70

Westel model number please?

I don't intend to be so pedantic, but it is important to know what the device capabilities are to determine if there is a 'better' or more efficient or 'proper' configuration for the specific depth of the layout.

 

And why is the Westel necessary in any event? Unless it is acting as a 'dummy' or hub to connect other devices.

Pedantic? lol, you must have watched Seinfeld. One of George's dates used that word and he had no clue, but he repeated it just to feign knowledge. Me too ... I guess it means redundant or repetitive. :wacko:

 

As stated above, "" Oh, the reason for the slave and the Ethernet not directly to the HP Compaq is the wireless is being used by a Roku about 10 feet away. ""

The Westell was just a left over from earlier days. Rather than throw it we used it to get the signal via the slave nearer the Roku in the FL Room. I call it the porch, ;)  , it started out as a porch before remodeled years ago. Now I should say this, the use of the slave is nothing new. It's served this purpose for a year or more. OK, the slave deifned ...

There's no doubt this is the one. Here is a link. I am lazy at the moment and the router is pinned up ceiling high, at 65 I do not feel like climbing up to look. However most the week with brother putting in dedicated lines in the basement I felt like I'd performed this 40 times a day. I'm resting. But this is a pretty certain thing.

You have no idea! :icon_thumleft: We've watched Seinfeld for years, repeat after repeat. Love the obvious. Which obscures the masses. :)

 

None the less, is the Westel wired or a repeater? I will say you point out the obvious as wired, but I have to ask, otherwise this could account for the high latency between the two , see?

Well according to my friend Art Vandelay, an architect and his recent flame Nurse Paloma ... (LOL)

 

The Westell is connected as shown in the diagram above by direct shielded Ethernet wire. I guess that's what you are asking? The only things I use now wireless are the tablet from time to time and the Roku in either room. I always put the Roku's in inactive when done. Both TV's have a Chromecast connected. I'm not sure but they do show up in the Verizon Console I mentioned above as "connected."  Of course I've removed the IP's from the images below.

 

MYPAVILION is the Windows 10 pc at the primary Veriozon modem/router

NP ~ are the Roku's

android-494~ is the Xoom Tablet

Wii and the android's disconnected are the neighbors that I have blocked access. Next question from you is why? We have not been able to find a way back into the Westell to security lock it. Even when we know the IP and log on with this XP which it is connected to is won't log in or we don't know the credentials. So I found I could use Access Control to stop them from logging on, which I believe was their devices searching not them logging on purposely. The LWP devices are brothers. Since he just left yesterday they have not gone away.

 

And my friend my neck and shoulders about had it and I don't think it's much longer for me tonight. But I will stay current if you are onto something. Many many thanks to you and CA3LE.  Jack ":-Dx :lol:

We got the above settled as it is impossible to peruse usernames before registering it was purely happenstance, there's no way I could have known there was a "jackinthehouse". That was settled between us all and all is well. As CA3LE said, it's kinda kool that there are so many members that names are starting to resemble each. In a private message to CA3LE I sincerely offered to change my username so no one was offended but he said, Nyet ... so we both keep the names and it's up to you folks who read to keep us separate! haha! :P

Question: Is the new cable 'cat5' connected to a LAN port or the WAN port on the wireless node?  Your attempts to access the admin side might be triggering  a 'rebinding attack'. So it will redirect to a nulled page or error out depending.

 

You'll most likely be required to connect directly to the wireless node to access the admin panel, depending on how it was set up.

Understood, good info. However when I run these test it's usually back to back, in sequence, same issues involved. And I've done this running of sequence of tests often and get the low PING say on SpeedTest.net (Yeah, I know your stomach just turned .. )  But I run about 5 like that and TestMy always gives a 2x or more higher ping or whatever the "ms" stat means. Should I cut that in half?

 

 

Based on my past experience with Ookla's Speedtest, it often gives me ping times well below what I can get to any host. 

 

The following is an example where I ran a speed test:

I have yet to see a host (outside my network) give a 1ms ping time, let alone under 10ms.;)

Ookla has never shown that good for me. However I've come to rely on CA3LE's suggestions. I use from the command prompt ping and tracert to the "east.testmy.net" less the quotes. This is more reliable and with them I am always in the 15-17ms range. :rolleyes:
