Vinn Posted March 22, 2016 CID Report Share Posted March 22, 2016 I am getting very varied results from speedtest.net and testmy.net. Now, before everyone hounds me, I read the sticky about some of the differences in measurement methods. Im getting consistent 180Mb download from speedtest and 18Mb down from speedtest.net. This seems to follow the pattern of alot of the other posts I've seen: a 10:1 ratio of estimated speeds between these sites' tests. However, I have an interesting note to add to the conversation. At 180Mb down from speedtest, my router (AC66R runnin Merlin 380.57) is seeing about 35% CPU usage. At 18Mb down from testmy.net, my router is pegged at 100% CPU. Is there some distinct difference in the type of traffic that would cause a CPU bottleneck in my router? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
