Re: [Speed] ICSI Netalyzr Results - "Excess Buffering"
said by pfsmith:Look at the test results I posted here: »Re: [Speed] ICSI Netalyzr Results - "Excess Buffering"
I watched the video. I don't think this is the issue...
I'm alone on my network. One Win7 PC, one XBOX.
Both wired through Linky E4200.
No QOS. (disabled on my Linky)
Nothing running in the background. Completely idle connection. XBOX is turned OFF.
I run the ICSI Netalyzr and get the "excess buffering".
I'm going to try hooking my PC up directly - without the router. Will post results in the morning.
Also, when I tried QOS for my XBOX it made things worse.
I've tried DMZ for the XBOX and that didn't help, either.
I have 2-4M upload - confirmed by multiple speedtests - but, my XBOX gives a warning about slow upload speeds. How is this possible? 2M is *plenty* fast. Yet, my games are *horrible* - about half are unplayable.
Browsing on my PC - with XBOX off - is very laggy. Yet, I have ~25M down according to multiple speed tests. How is this possible? I can't load two *simple* pages at the same time without it taking 10+ seconds (for exampe, dslreports & drudgereport. These are quick - mostly text - webpages).
My speedtests indicate about 70ms to Chicago. It feels more like 500ms, or worse.
There was nothing else significant going on when I did the Netalyzer tests and the Comcast speed tests either. The only difference is that with QoS enabled in my Netgear switch, I don't have the buffer bloat effect, but without QoS, I do have the buffer bloat effect. I use minimal QoS settings, just enough to limit my connection to its real sustained speed and that eliminates the effects of PowerBoost and buffer bloat for me. Of course, if you can't live without PowerBoost...
We can never have enough of nature.
We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.
