Upstream Queue:

2753 ms

Notes: Your downstream bandwidth is more than 13 times faster than your upstream bandwidth.

Your upstream queue is so large that packets can get delayed for more than a second. This can be a problem for real-time traffic such as VoIP or online games!

Glasnost? Good name.

Got that, but when i click the Start Measuring with 20 Mbps it does another test and sends me back to the same image above.

Much better stats than my Road Runner.

I guess this is what happens when one buys a $20 router and sets it to 54 Mpbs. The auto setting yielded twice the downstream bandwidth the other day, and better numbers in the other areas.

Here it is at 18 Mbps and a different channel.

Downstream Bandwidth: 7045 Kbps
Downstream Queue: 88 ms
Upstream Bandwidth: 399 Kbps
Upstream Queue: 8059 ms
Does anyone know how I can fix the upstream queue problem? MTU rate change, perhaps?

Downstream Bandwidth: 3128 Kbps
Downstream Queue: 15 ms
Upstream Bandwidth: 505 Kbps
Upstream Queue: 2677 ms
At 11 Mbps. So much for 802.11g. I guess I'll have to keep the TX rate low. I'm going to try a lower setting still.

Downstream Bandwidth: 5029 Kbps
Downstream Queue: 365 ms
Upstream Bandwidth: 396 Kbps
Upstream Queue: 8109 ms
This makes little sense. I'm at 6 Mbps and the numbers are going back to where I started from when I was at 54 Mbps. Maybe the TX rate settings of the router are mostly fake and it really just supports 802.11b?

There is also this test, but it doesn't seem to raise the red flag the other one does. It says my ping time is 59 ms.

Good info.

just kidding. here's my actual bandwidth:

I use speedtest.net regularly to check and see what I'm getting.

I'm usually between 18 mbps and 22 down and about 1/10th of that up.

Comcast, Mpls, MN, in case you're wondering.
