typing with one hand...lot's of pain, stiffness suddenly in one hand around the thumb...typing aggravates greatly. icing now...

that test is abbreviated version of MySpeed. gave me 2.34mbps down. too far away...150ms round trip...too high for good speed.

Round Two with this exploit:
Taken from here:
»krebsonsecurity.com/

"Researchers: Java Zero-Day Leveraged Two Flaws:
New analysis of a zero-day Java exploit that surfaced last week indicates that it takes advantage of not one but two previously unknown vulnerabilities in the widely-used software. The latest figures suggest that these vulnerabilities have exposed more than a billion users to attack."

I've now removed Java from all of my PCs. I've had it off my desktop and laptop for awhile. I'd left it on my daughter's laptop but when I uninstalled it recently, I didn't update...my daughter is using an ipad moreso nowadays anyway.

Thats a good test!!!

Thank you... I find JAVA works better than flash! (Not as CPU intensive,etc)



EDIT:

It says my DL speed is 1.98Megs which i think is way off!!



I think the results from this one are more accurate

Says my DL is 2386k

Not for me. It told me 2740.1 Kbps which is way low.

I typically get 10.3Mbps from this site.

Even C/Net's test gave me 7,333Kbps.
