Under Newsgroup Download Speed Test click on Test. If testing keeps blinking yet nothing else happens then something is being blocked. At work when I do this it actually works, but at home with 50/5 it just keeps blinking meaning there is some sort of block to the servers happening by TimeWarner.
I noticed the same yesterday. The Giganews speed test just sits there and does nothing but blink "testing" at me.
What's really weird though is that I just tried to d/l something and it came down at full speed. But for 2 weeks straight up till just now it was slow. Strange timing. Will check again in the a.m.
