Nice!

I use this test all of the time in the malware forum:

Here's how to get a pretty picture of the results to put in the forum instead of a link:

Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and click on Begin Test

When the Test finishes click on Share This Result and then select Forum then Copy then move to a reply and Ctrl + v

Ron

PS Pathetic isn't it:

I thought I had reason to complain! :) At least my F has a + behind it. I've paid 1/4 the cost for dial-up as opposed to what I pay now for satellite. Dial-up may have been slow, but at least I knew I could count on the connection being there when needed.

Tech support updated my dish and modem today. Earlier the speed were not much different while on wireless connection, though now that peak time of day has passed I received the following using wireless:

And the following while directly connected to modem:

Connection download Mpbs reached 30.+ earlier. The difference's in speed between wireless vs direct connection did not even cross my mind.

To curb my curiosity, would you be willing to try the test while directly wired when you have time to experiment? :)
