When I had Telus, that packet loss was 0 and the grade was an "A". What's up with this?
Just got back from work and did the test again and what a surprising result!
Don't know what was going on yesterday, but to answer kevinds questions, I was using Cisco DPC3825 modem, connected via WiFi to a laptop running Windows 7, using Google Chrome as a browser, having the latest Java update and I picked the Oregon server because it was giving me the same result while using the Lynnwood, WA server.
Guess it fixed itself! Thanks cornat and kevinds.
What is pingtest?
OK got the pingtest.com but is that wise??No viruses etc?
No, it's not a virus. Pingtest.net basically measures the quality of your Internet connection, by doing 3 tests.
Thanks..I check the Internet.
Maybe it would not hurt to try it again?
Hey Vostok, I see you're testing to a server in Oregon. There may be something wrong with your internet configuration on the computer for it to think the best ping will be down in Oregon. Make sure you have your VPN turned off if you're running one. Also there may be a problem with that site, try some speedtest sites like speedtest.shaw.ca or speedtest.net.
Definately something wrong, but not enough infomation to start to figure it out...
What modem do you have? If the Router combo modems, is it in Gateway or Bridged mode?
What other network hardware do you have? Is this computer wired? Or wireless?
Windows? Apple? Linux? Which browser are you using for this this test? Have you tried another?
Have you updated the Java client?
If Windows have you tried safe-mode, direct to the modem in safe mode?
Did you choose the OR server from the map? Or did pingtest.net choose it for you?
If you were actually getting 99% packet loss, your internet would not be usable, at all.
It could be your Shaw signal, but you wouldn't have any internet at all, if that test was showing accurate data.
One last question,
Where you noticing internet problems, and decided to do some tests, or did you try the tests, just to see what they would show?
As I said, 99% packet loss, your internet would not be useable. Think of using the mail system to play chess, and only 1 out of 100 letters made it to the person you are playing with.
If you were posting with your Shaw connection here, it didn't make sense.
Glad it is working great now.
Hey again. I was noticing connection problems, i.e., YouTube videos would keep showing a spinning icon and webpages keep loading. It was very laggy. However, this is hit and miss. It happens sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. Yesterday, I did another test and my packet loss was down to 85%, however, I was getting the speeds I'm supposed to get: 19.5 mb down and 0.50 mb up, (my plan is 20 mb down and .50 mb up). I was using my Shaw connection for both the tests above. Weird.
Here's the speed test to Lynnwood, WA.
When letting speedtest.net decide which server to pick, it picks Vancouver and my result is blown out of the roof:
Doing the test 30 seconds later, and here's what I get. Very inconsistent results. Don't know is it my home or Shaw's servers.
And here's another one, 4 minutes later. As I said, very inconsistent.
Is it like that during the day and early mornings too?
I know in the evening it often drops, depends on a lot of things if it is an acceptable amount.
What speed are you paying for?
Retrieving data ...
