  • Pingtest Assesses the Quality of Your Internet Connection

    http://www.pingtest.net/index.php

    This is brought to you by speedtest.net.

    It will test your line quality, packet loss etc.

    It seems it is in Beta, needs to show more info in my opinion.

    Still it will give you a good estimation of the quality of your line?

    Re: Pingtest.net

    I would have to say not enough to show line quality. My results:



    I've had a line test from AT&T techs before when I've posted in the support sections of DSLReports.com's forums. Their tests of course show more data like attenuation, noise margin, transmit power, etc.

    As an example of what PingTest.com needs to do, here's a recent line test done on my phone line (which is used for my DSL):

    DSL Down
    Relative Capacity Occupation (0 - 100%) 41
    Noise Margin (-64 to 63 dB) 22
    Transmitted Signal Power (-31 to 31 dBm) 11
    Signal Attenuation (0 to 127 dB) 56
    Max Attainable Bit Rate (Kbps) 4096
    Current Bit Rate (Kbps) 1536
    Cell Count 58067431

    DSL Up
    Relative Capacity Occupation (0 - 100%) 47
    Noise Margin (-64 to 63 dB) 21
    Transmitted Signal Power (-31 to 31 dBm) 5
    Signal Attenuation (0 to 127 dB) 31
    Max Attainable Bit Rate (Kbps) 928
    Current Bit Rate (Kbps) 384
    Cell Count 42638624

      Is this a good download and upload score?

              Just at the right place at the right time. The switch to Fiber Optic last year made a huge difference. Before my numbers were between 3-5Mb/s down and the low .50's up. Waiting for the day when speeds over 1Mb/s upload are possible.

              Switching to Cat6 grade ethernet cables can help too - if you have a high speed modem, router and LAN port...

                I managed to get 15MB Down, 1MB Up. Just regular cable with crappy cables.

                  Showoff. ;D



                  My supervisor at work has a 104 Mbps connection. It is beastly. He says he can load videos and play xbox LIVE in 3 rooms and download things continuously all at the same time and not even notice a stutter in anything.


                  As for PingTest

                  I dont really know what any of that stuff means though other than packet loss and ping.

                    Re: Pingtest.net

                    Question.

                    I get

                    [media]http://www.speedtest.net/result/587869547.png[/media]

                    But If I run a second at the same time I get about the same. And if I run a third at the same time I get about 1Mbs.

                    Is that representative of my actual or are these test doing some kind of extrapolation for lesser data transfer?

                          I tried that for a period. I noticed a very marginal difference of 0.01 to 0.03 down and 0.01 up. Not to mention CAT6 cables cost more than CAT5/e and since I've had to replace two of the cables. So now I only have a CAT6 leading from the modem to the router. Everything else is wireless or CAT5e.

                              Pingtest Assesses the Quality of Your Internet Connection

                              Lifehacker.com has a good post about Pingtest, a great webapp from the makers of the well known Speedtest.net

                              Pingtest Assesses the Quality of Your Internet Connection

                              I checked my line out, and seems good. If you are having bugs, might want to play with this for a while.

                              Remember, most of TG's servers are in Northern Virginia, and there are some test servers there.:icon_cool
