Hi Chris, I use a router with a laptop due to the location of Hughesnet router. I tested my speeds wirelessly. I have been using a VPN since I got Hughesnet over 6 years ago because I was told it would work just fine for working from home (this was when I was on the Spaceway or whatever). I upgraded about a year or less ago to Gen 4 and have had no issues until the end of last week and this week. I was able to access the VPN yesterday, it seems after my bonus time is over and I'm using my data allowance.
I was able to access my VPN on Monday (which I have successfully done for 6 years until the end of last week and the week) and it happened after my bonus time expired and when my data kicked it. I have been unsuccessful on remote access via my VPN on Tuesday or Wednesday. Everything was fine last week until either Thursday or Friday.
I will try to get tests 5 mins apart, I was working on a deadline today so my ability to pull away from what I'm supposed to be doing was scarce. I assumed when you said throughout the day, you meant every now and again.
It's just an easy way to look at the tests so you can look at all of them in one location and be able to see patterns of slowdowns and such.
BTW, when you look at the results (when you are signed in) you may see some that are highlighted in yellow. Those results aren't yours. They are people's who happen to be on the same connection ID at the time that they ran their tests. If you are seeing the other ones and you want to be able to see just yours, scroll all of the way to the bottom of the table and just under it, on the left, will be an option to click on to show only YOUR tests. Why testmy defaults to showing you other peoples' speed tests along with yours on the results page when you are signed in is beyond me. It seems like the default should be to only show yours. I guess nothing can be simple these days. LOL.
Also, only YOU see the other tests (the ones in yellow). If anyone else looks at your results page they will only see YOUR test results, not the others.
