How are these signal levels? I'm having slow page loading

Click for full size
do you guys notice any issues? Not sure if I should call Comcast or not

These levels look good. Everything falls within range.

Do you notice the slow speeds on just one particular website?

i just changed my nat filtering from moderate to open and this seemed to help a bit but not sure if its placebo or not lol

It's my understanding that DNS requests in an ipv6 environment are sent in both an ipv6 and an ipv4 form at the same time, which adds a lot of latency. Regardless of the why and how, it's slow as balls. I disabled ipv6 almost immediately after it was rolled out here and it is a lot faster back on trusty ipv4.

Your upstream power level is pretty low.

I don't know if that's your problem though.

@comcast.net

They are not too low. They are close, but those won't cause slow speeds. My upstream levels have been at 34-36 for five years straight and I've had no issues.

Hello can you tell us what your router make and model is and what site you were visiting when you experienced slow speeds?

FWIW, those numbers are a bit dated..

Don't be so certain. Every system and user environment is unique. There are no blanket / universal numbers that apply to everyone.

Yeah I was a little worried about my upload speeds. But the weird thing is, my speed tests are awesome. I do notice though that when it does the upload test, it goes super high, then goes a little down, then goes up again. Not sure if that's related to the semi bad upload levels.

The modem is a brand new Arris TG862G.

Now here's the thing. I've been having no problems for months now. Everything has been rock solid. But I accidently did something stupid when messing with my router settings and so I had to do a factory reset and ever since i've noticed that pages sometimes hang, rarely don't even connect, etc.

But again, speed tests are rock solid. Maybe it's in my head and i'm looking too deep into it but I don't know, I just feel like somethings wrong.

I would say your upstream signal levels are the problem. They're on the low side.

Not sure I agree. The last post from the OP indicates the router was reset and the issues started then.

The fact that speeds are good on speed tests, but browsing is slow usually indicates a problem with DNS.

OP - can you run this dns benchmark and post the results?

I'm thinking the router reset was just a coincidence.

Have the signal levels always been the same or very close ?

Quite possibly, but fast speeds but slow browsing is often a DNS issue.

DNS Benchmark Conclusions & Recommendations

What the results you have just obtained mean to YOU

The results summary, conclusions, and recommendations from your most recent run of this DNS benchmark are provided below. Please carefully consider the implications of making any changes to your system's current configuration before doing so.

ý Only the built-in default resolvers were benchmarked.
Please consider taking the time to create a custom resolver list.
This is a reminder about the tremendous benefits to be gained from benchmarking the "Top 50" resolvers that are found for you by the Benchmark's custom resolver list builder. When you have time, don't forget to give that a try. The results will astound you! You can find the option to do this on either the application's System Menu (Alt-Spacebar) or on the Add/Remove nameservers dialog on the Nameservers page.

ý System has only ONE (router based) nameserver configured.
It appears that only one local (router gateway) DNS nameserver, with the IP address of [192.168.1.1], is currently providing all DNS name resolution services to this system. This configuration is not recommended because most consumer-grade routers provide inefficient and under-powered DNS resolution services.

Unless the DNS resolvers your router is using is under your control, it may not be providing the best or complete name resolution services. For example, is it using multiple redundant DNS nameservers?

Users of GRC's DNS Spoofability system have determined that consumer-grade routers can be crashed by the receipt of specific DNS reply packets from the Internet. This opens the possibility that Internet-based criminals could acquire access to your router from the Internet as well as to the private network in controls.

Many consumer-grade routers fail to provide the full range of DNS lookup services. This may have been detected by the benchmark and noted below.

Recommended Actions:

Unless you have some specific reason not to, you should give serious thought to disabling your router's provisioning of DNS services (which it is providing for all computers on your local network). After this is done, a fresh reboot of your computers will likely reveal the multiple DNS nameservers provided by your ISP. This is a superior configuration, without an under-powered router acting as a incompetent middleman and impeding all DNS access.

Note that if you can determine the IP addresses of your ISP-provided nameservers (which may be visible in your router's web configuration) you could manually add them to the nameservers being tested by this benchmark, while also leaving your router providing DNS. This would allow you to compare the performance when running through your router versus "going direct".

þ System's sole nameserver is alive and replying to queries.
Although this system has only one DNS resolving nameserver, at least it is alive and replying to DNS queries. (If it were not, you would likely be painfully aware, since it would be difficult to accomplish anything requiring Internet access.)

þ System nameserver is faster than ALL public alternatives.
The DNS resolver your system is using is responding faster than any of the 100% reliable publicly available alternative DNS nameservers this benchmark utility just tested. Therefore, there would be no performance benefit from switching to any of those publicly available nameservers. However, since you only have a single system nameserver configured, it might be useful to use some of the fastest public nameservers as backups if that's possible in your situation. Please also note that this best performance appraisal assumes that this system's nameserver is 100% reliable. See the next item below for an appraisal of your nameserver's reliability.

Note: If there appeared to be one or more faster public alternative nameservers, there was enough uncertainty created by the spread of benchmark timing results that it was not possible to be at least 95% confident that any of those faster seeming nameservers really were reliably faster than the nameserver this system is currently using. So it made no sense to alarm you about the need to change things when there was insufficient evidence.

þ This system's nameserver is 100% reliable.
DNS reliability is extremely important, since lookup requests that are dropped and ignored by nameservers cause significant delays in Internet access while the querying system waits for a reply. The system is then finally forced to reissue the query to the same or to backup nameservers. While your system is patiently waiting for a reply, you are impatiently waiting to get on with your Internet access.

During this benchmark test, the system's nameserver tested returned a reply for every request sent. It doesn't get any better than that. Very nice.

þ This system nameserver returns errors.
This is a GOOD thing! Some DNS providers, such as OpenDNS and even the Earthlink, Roadrunner and Comcast ISPs, redirect incorrectly entered URLs to their own advertising-laden marketing-driven interception page instead of simply returning an error to the web browser. But this system's nameserver is returning errors when asked to lookup non-existent domain names.

þ System nameserver is replying to all query types.
During the development of this DNS Benchmark we discovered that the routers used by some pre-release testers were not returning results for the benchmark's Uncached and/or Dotcom testing queries. Even though these queries are admittedly unusual, they are completely valid. So the only conclusion was that those few routers were inherently defective. The good news here is that your nameserver is replying to these unusual but valid queries.

REMEMBER TO CHECK SPOOFABILITY !!
Whether you make any changes to your nameservers or not, but
especially if you do, be sure to verify the security of your final DNS
resolver set by using GRC's free "DNS Spoofability" testing service!

Interpreting your benchmark results above:

The following guide is only intended as a quick
"get you going" reference and reminder.

To obtain a working understanding of this program's operation, and to familiarize yourself with its many features, please see the main DNS Benchmark web page by clicking on the "Goto DNS Page" button below.

Referring to this sample:

The Benchmark creates a table similar to the one above for each DNS resolver (nameserver) tested. The top line specifies the IP address of the nameserver for this table.

The first three numeric columns provide the minimum, average, and maximum query-response times in seconds. Note that these timings incorporate all network delays from the querying computer, across the Internet, to the nameserver, the nameserver's own processing, and the return of the reply. Since the numbers contain three decimal digits of accuracy, the overall resolution of the timing is thousandths of a second, or milliseconds.

The fourth numeric column shows the "standard deviation" of the collected query-response times which is a common statistical measure of the spread of the values - a smaller standard deviation means more consistency and less spread.

The fifth and last numeric column shows the reliability of the tested nameserver's replies to queries. Since lost, dropped, or ignored queries introduce a significant lookup delay (typically a full second or more each) a nameserver's reliability is an important consideration.

The labels of the middle three lines are colored red, green, and blue to match their respective bars on the response time bar chart.

The "Cached Name" line presents the timings for queries that are answered from the server's own local name cache without requiring it to forward the query to other name servers. Since the name caches of active public nameservers will always be full of the IPs of common domains, the vast majority of queries will be cached. Therefore, the Benchmark gives this timing the highest weight.

The "Uncached Name" line presents the timings for queries which could not be answered from the server's local cache and required it to ask another name server for the data. Specifically, this measures the time required to resolve the IP addresses of the Internet's 30 most popular web sites. The Benchmark gives this timing the second highest weight.

The "DotCom Lookup" line presents the timings for the resolution of dot com nameserver IP addresses. This differs from the Cached and Uncached tests above, since they measure the time required to determine a dot com's IP, whereas the DotCom Lookup measures the time required to resolve the IP of a dot com's nameserver, from which a dot com's IP would then be resolved. This test presents a measure of how well the DNS server being tested is connected to the dot com nameservers.

The lower border of the table contains a set of eight indicators (O and -) representing non-routable networks whose IP addresses are actively blocked by the resolver to protect its users from DNS rebinding attacks: . The "O" character indicates that blocking is occurring for the corresponding network, whereas the "-" character indicates that non-routable IP addresses are being resolved and rebinding protection is not present. The first four symbols represent the four IPv4 networks beginning with 10., 127., 172., and 192. respectively, and the second four symbols are the same networks but for IPv6.

The final two lines at the bottom of each chart duplicate the information from the Name and Owner tabs on the Nameserver page:

dns.chi1.speakeasy.net
Speakeasy

The first line displays the "Reverse DNS" name of the server, if any. (This is the name looked up by the nameserver's IP address.) The second line displays the Ownership information, if any, of the network containing the nameserver

The final line of the automatically generated chart is a timestamp that shows the date and time of the start, completion, and total elapsed time of the benchmark:

UTC: 2009-07-15 from 16:41:50 to 16:44:59 for 03:08.703

All times are given in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) which is equivalent to GMT. In the sample shown above, the entire benchmark required 3 minutes, 8.703 seconds to run to completion.

Please try manually setting your DNS servers on the computer you're testing from to these two:

75.75.75.75
75.75.76.76

It sounds like you're currently pointing to your router only, and it's acting as a DNS forwarder to do lookups. Can you check what DNS servers the router is using via the web interface? To bypass what it's feeding your computer via DHCP, try manually setting them to the above and see if your browsing is faster afterwards.

Try temporarily disabling ipv6. That is also a likely culprit here.

thanks, just disabled ipv6 on my router and browing is better

What IPv6 Address did you have? Native IPv6 or a tunnel?

2001:558:feed::1 and 2001:558:feed::2 but you should be getting those via DHCP..

Just wanted to give a update for those who cared, it looks like the culprit was my router! And it makes sense too since I had even said that the problem didn't start til I hard reset my router.

Well anyways, after trying everything, I decided to stop using the router in bridge mode and use the Arris built in wireless instead. Believe it or not, it's not bad at all and now my pings are better and web browsing is fluid.

I still don't know why the Netgear crapped out like this and you would think after doing a hard reset, the problem would go away but I guess the firmware or something is corrupt.



not

@comcast.net

Why would you use the router in bridge mode? Are you sure you know what that means? That means that something "in front" of that router was doing the routing... i.e. the Arris.

The router should have been flashed with the latest firmware from the manufacture, your DNSs in it set to 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 and devices plugged up so that it was doing the routing for you, not something else.... unless there was a good reason for it.
