what happened to testmy.net?


Recommended Posts

not sure when it happened, but for about the last three weeks almost every time i check my speeds here, they are slow, and not just a little slow, but seriously slow, running at about 80% of my speeds.

in the past, testmy net always scored my speeds around the 90% or higher of my advertised.

after testing here and getting slow speeds, i can go to two or three other test sites, and my scores are where they have always been in the past, high.

something changed here at testmy net that i didn't read about?

im sorry to hear about that

are you testing some the main server or from associate server (mirrors)?

testmy net has 2 brand new shynny dual xeons and is faster then ever

you should really not be getting slower speed thens before

Try doing a tracert to the site there may be a slowdown someware along the line.

To do a tracert go to Start>>Run. Type in cmd, or (command in win 9x). A screen with c:Documents and settings%user name% should show up.

there type "tracert testmy.net" without the "s.

To copy that info into a post, RIGHT-click, than select mart and highlight the text and press enter. Then press Ctrl-v to paste it into a message.

If you are getting normal speeds elsewhere it is most likely your route to my servers, it's not on my server end though... I still have many accurate tests logged at over 15 Mbps...

look at HaloBox ;-) >> https://testmy.net/s_engine.php?type=user_name&q=HaloBox

My personal route has done that in the past too, hell lately I can't get over 4.5 Mbps... and I have a 5Mbps line.  Just have to wait till your route gets better to testmy.net ;-/

so my tracert looks ok then?  i didn't see anything really out of line with it.  and here school is still going, another two and a half weeks yet before i have that slow down to take place.

prior to this "problem" my speeds were around 4mb down, 382 up with a 4000/384 connection, and usually always way above advertised, and always with the "red hot" symbol at the end of the test speed line, but not any more, and most of the time it has the "red warning" letters, that i am only getting about 80%.

tests at dslreports, toast, speakeasy, uc santa cruz all show me getting those older higher speeds, but then i come here and wham, i take a big hit, every time almost.  i say almost, because one out of 10 tests will show a good speed here, not as high as in the past, but almost.

i run all the anti programs; spybot, adaware, spyblaster, even ms antispyware(giant), and sygate, and avg. update them all the time, run them all the time, normal and in safe mode.  i know 100% that i am "clean".

just too weird
