it took longer to download the test then it did to run it..
The download IS the test. The test is the metering of the speed of the download. It doesn't download something and then run the test.
Also, make sure that you are using the 12MB manual test. If the 12MB test happens to finish in less than seven seconds, it will automatically kick up to a larger sized test, but when that happens, it usually only kicks up to somewhere in the mid 30MB range, not 200MB.
