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.
Downstream Bandwidth: 9336 Kbps Downstream Queue: 155 ms
Upstream Bandwidth: 872 Kbps Upstream Queue: 199 ms
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.
Does anyone know how I can fix the upstream queue problem? MTU rate change, perhaps?
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.
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.
Downstream Bandwidth: 94814 Kbps
Upstream Bandwidth: 84329 Kbps
just kidding. here's my actual bandwidth:
Downstream Bandwidth: 1314 Kbps
Downstream Queue: 167 ms
Upstream Bandwidth: 329 Kbps
Upstream Queue: 4211 ms

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.
