If it's still free (not just "first week" or "first month" but ... ongoing) then please send me an invite.

Thanks,
Bill

Ok, I started line monitoring this morning. What else do I need to do?

What is this invite I should be getting?

Sorry, I'm at work and have to be careful about the boss seeing me online so I can't really scroll around for too long to read through this thread.

Oh, question: Since I had to set my router to make me pingable, does this compromise security while surfing the net and gaming? I'm a little uncomfortable about this.

I have sent you an invite. You need to accept it. As far as bring pingable, I don't really see it as much of a security threat.

Don't know if this question belongs here.

I started the Charter line monitoring yesterday. I see at some point, I have packet loss and high ping spike to SFO, CA.

What does this mean? How can I tell at what time of day/evening this happened?

I'm confused. I know when I do ping tests to CA, WA (west coast), I have 100-180ms. That is not good is it? Can this be corrected?

Or, where do I ask these questions?

The smoke ping has been an invaluable tool in getting charter to fix my connection, the tech's argued that since the signals levels were fine I could not be having issues with my service untill I showed a tech that actually decided to show up even after he could ping my modem the print out of my service to the 3 sites across the US.

I thought about doing that also but I'm concerned about it causing me more lag when I game.

How do I read the graph & what can I do with the info I get since I'm showing over 300ms pikes at certain times of the day. I don't understand it & can't tell when these spikes happened.

smoke ping shouldnt cause any lag it uses vary little bandwith (the bandwith used from ping is around less then .1 percent of bandwith

Signed up here, installed Dyndns.org, got your invite, made myself pingable, but I cannot for the life of me get the host url to work properly.

Using:
»username:password@dslreports.com···&host_id =NNNNNN&myip=A.B.C.D
*replaced my username:password with the real ones, and my NNNNNN ID was replaced with the real one, what I get back is a pop up box stating Windows cannot find..... if I get rid of the ID:PW dslreports.org box pops up asking for the ID and PW, so Im guessing the formatting has just changed in the way a URL will accept the ID and PW in the beginning of that url??

Any assistance would be appreciated

Thanks

Erik

I have a router running dd-wrt. I presume this would work with that?

Update: It works! I guess I had to let it process a while. My settings are below for the set-up. As for dd-wrt on my router, these are the settings:

DDNS Service
User Name: guest [apparently you don't need to input the user name or password for afraid.org--maybe because of the hash info?]
Password: guest
Host Name: mydomain.com, [the hash information from freedns.afraid.org (see below)]
Do not use external ip checked: "No" selected.

hash info: login your account at afraid.org, click on Dynamic DNS, click on the Direct URL link, and copy everything after the "update.php?" in the address field of your browser:

»freedns.afraid.org/dynamic/updat···OTI0NzU=

Basically, this is the hash information: "VUNXVDG2MzFVMVVBQUdKNlJnMEFBQUFoOjgwOTI0NzU="

so it should look like:

Host Name: mydomain.com, VUNXVDG2MzFVMVVBQUdKNlJnMEFBQUFoOjgwOTI0NzU=

note that it needs to include EVERYTHING for me, it include the "=".

-----EARLIER POST--------------------------------------

Got the invite, and it looks like I'm set-up. However, I see that my ip address is being shown as afraid.org, which is the free ddns service I'm using.

My settings:

Dynamic IP: (checked)
IP from this DNS: XXXXX.com [yes, I put my correct domain here.]
Unique number for dynamic DNS client: XXXXXX [yes, I put my correct 6 digit number here.]

----------
The "Monitor this STATIC IP:" field is what shows the afraid.org IP address:

72.8.150.30

I verified that afraid.org has my correct DDNS IP address, and I verified that I am pingable by going to this site:

»www.kloth.net/services/ping.php

and pinged my domain name (XXXXX.com) and, just for kicks, my dynamic IP.

Anyone have any ideas? Been scratching my head and looking for a solution for about an hour now...
