Auto test keeps stopping

Recommended Posts

I am trying to run an "auto test" of 100 tests, one every 15 minutes, to gather evidence about the instability of my ADSL connection. After one successful run of 100 tests, I am trying to get another 100, but I find that the repeats stop happening after just a few tests. On the latest attempt it stopped at test no. 2.


The machine I am using is a DELL desktop running Windows XP SP3.

The browser is Internet Explorer 8.


Any ideas what I can do to diagnose and/or fix this problem?

There are still hundreds of thousands of XP machines running I'm sure. I run into them fairly often myself. Those pesky web requirements keep getting in the way of sunset OS's and browsers.

Glad you got that sorted out.

I'm having this problem too. For the last several days, I set auto-test "Combined", "Express", "Every hour", "Repeat 100 times" (or even 50) and it stops testing after maybe 5 tests and sends me an email saying "Your automatic speed test is complete."


I'm on Windows 8.1, using Firefox 53.0.2 (32 bit).


Also, when I click "Force Re-Test", it opens a new browser tab and runs the test. But this results page does not have the info at the top of the page:

"This test will automatically re-run every 1 Hour.  Minimize this window and come back in about 99 Hours for complete results

After 100 cycles your overall results will be shown, email reminder sent to _______@alumni.princeton.edu when your test is complete.

Test #1 of 100 → Remember, make sure your computer does not sleep or hibernate during this process. Retesting in (56m 56s) at 11:45:03 am GMT -4.

This too just started a few days ago.
