Do thinkbroadband first.... then I might be able to setup a proxy somehow so you can remote use my connection but we are getting a bit advanced now.
Sorry, you have VPN so... it is just doing a speed test (your choice of which). and repeat with VPN tunnel enabled. Yes your gateway needs a good connection of course or it will be very off due to that
So what does this show?
I like the site along with sams but have never had an affiliation of any kind with either so nope, not on a drive of any kind 🙂
I think I misunderstood their test anyway now I`ve looked into it, they do 6 downloads so try and max out bandwidth. My issue has been secure/non ports so this is a wrong test unfortunately 😞 Still is a jolly nice test and no reason why on download shouldn`t max connection
That i want your connection clearly
Do you no get the 2 rates? The 1st green one is the pants connection in affect but the yellow is the nice solid secure socket.....
Oh, I see the problem. The yellow one isn't secure socket. It's the HTTP*6 result. This just means it's a multi-threaded download to account for pauses in your download due to a bad network setup, including wrong MTU. and wrong RWIN.
Here's my Flash result 🙂
Hi there I finally done a test on thinkbroadband and I was shocked at how bad my results where. Now to be honest I had to carry out the test on my laptop which is needing replaced and was over wifi. The results are well down on what BT advertised. http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/results.html?id=141754575893407754432
Could these results be anything to do with my laptop? I don't use it much. I mostly use an ipad, apple tv and games consoles which are wired!
Those are indeed really pants results, I`ve never had both multi and single connections bounce around like that. I did get it wrong that thinkbroadband does a secure/insecure test.... however it is still a fact as I can do secure or insecure traffic over nntp but is much harder for me to share said results
I`m on my own roll today of as low as 0mbit upload and 12mbit download with still 18/62 stats (6db)+/- .3 NnR). OK the 0 is a bit impossible but .001 is more likely
You can not stream with stats like that as I`m sure it warned you on the tester page.
.... and my wait for a technical person to ever call me back continues. Fully expecting the next cubical guy to call me today and anoother nothing result once more
I reset my router and carried out the test again. They came back much better and more in line with what I am expecting.
Hopefully this will give me great streaming quality now.
