Slow download speed on testmy.net

Recommended Posts

Well for the past week or so I've been getting high pings to testmy.net, here is an example of my ping times for server2.testmy.net.

Ping statistics for 67.18.179.85:

    Packets: Sent = 20, Received = 20, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

    Minimum = 86ms, Maximum = 103ms, Average = 89ms

I have Comcast cable, the highest package, which is 8000/768. Here is one of my test results I have just taken.

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 4499 Kbps about 4.5 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB)

Download Speed is:: 549 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2)

Test Time:: Sat Sep 24 2005 20:08:53 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)

Bottom Line:: 80X faster than 56K 1MB download in 1.87 sec

Diagnosis: Looks Great : 4.36 % faster than the average for host (comcast.net)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-93WQXSIPV

That speed is very inaccurate, I've run dozens of other tests and I get about 8200kbps download speed. I also downloaded a test file from java.sun.com and the speed stabilized at 1030kb/s. The strange thing is when I run a upload test on server2.testmy.net the speed is accurate (about 740kbps). Please post if you know of anything I could do to resolve this, as testmy.net is my favorite website.

Testmy is a great site :notworthy:

No problem this way...

How about posting a tracert to testmy.net.

Or, if you have XP, try "pathping testmy.net" in Command Prompt and post those results back here.

BTW, pathping test takes time, so let it run if you didn't already know this.

That is what I am at right now.. sounds like you might be hitting a busy router.. My guess is that the hurricane has slowed down some of the routers in the south.. one of the servers is located in Texas.. So all of the net traffic in the south is going to have to be rerouted around the areas that were hit..

Good point, Swimmer. That is why you are a mod and I am a low life nothing. :haha: :haha:

But that very well is a possibility darkkie.

BTW, Swimmer, I did not realize darkkie posted this topic twice (tisk, tisk ;)); maybe you can merge them?

edit: On a side note that doesn't really matter - 500th post  :tongue2::confused2:occasion13.gif/happy_bday.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':bday:' />:' /> :booty::headbang:

not worry about it. .it is all good..

Your not a low life.. Most people dont realize that the weather and other things affect the net..  They just assume that it can not be brought down.  Well it can be..

dual posts merged..
