There are three test servers in the Phoenix area. I tested on each here are the results.

 

Phoenix #1: Ping:30ms; Down:33.35; Up:9.59

Phoenix #2: Ping:62ms; Down:31.12; Up:9.59

Tempe: Ping:9ms; Down:33.34; Up:9.61

 

I have the Cox Communications Premier service which claims to offer up to 100mb/s. Ihave a docsis 3.0 modem and a router which is less than a year old. All that said I have no idea what the above numbers mean :D

:lol: No issues with redirects? I believe once you reconfigure FireFox to your preference, you'll see performance to the level of what you are used to.

Ok my computer has behaved for a couple days straight. It's still a little slow at times though that is probably the browser. I think I am ready to declare this a success.

:thumbsup: One thing to consider is to not put that Points Panel software back on the machine. The proxy server that was running only disappeared when we eliminated that software. And the redirects stopped only after we eliminated their proxy server from your machine. Definitely food for thought there. :-)

If we can be of service in the future, please don't hesitate to come and see us. :-)

Safe surfing

I have a couple questions before we lock this thread down.

 

Would you suggest upgrading to Windows 10?

Based on the speedtest results, should I get a better networking card for my computer?

Would you suggest upgrading to Windows 10?

Hello :)

Honestly, I can't offer you a yes or a no on that. I haven't upgraded my machine in a while (Vista OS here)but there some pros and cons to upgrading. One of the major holdups for me is the fact that Win 10 will use your bandwidth to help others download updates to their machines. You can deactivate it, but they don't really advertise that it does that.

As for the pros, it's good to have your OS updated, but when I upgrade, I usually wait a few months after the initial release as there are always bugs they have to release fixes for.

That's not really my area of expertise, but I've included a link to our hardware forums. They'll more than likely run some further tests to determine if there are any issues with your network card and whether or not it needs replacing.
