An option to just run from the gateway would be nice. For example, instead of sending data to/from Chicago or Dallas, have an option to just go to/from the gateway for the test.
Kind of a complement to the tests on the HT2000W System Control Center for the LAN Speed Test for LAN speed and TestMy.Net for Internet speed.
Pretty sure the speed test that's here already is that.
I thought so too, but recently it seems to have changed?
With the Ookla speedtest acting up since the start of the year, I was trying the HughesNet test some more because I thought it was just going to the gateway and back, but there now seems to be a 'server selected', which is auto-selected....
Is this new? I don't remember it, but I may not have noticed it. It would be nice to have an option.
Lol... New to me.
If I remember correctly, it's been selecting a server for some time. I remember when I was trying it out over the summer, just for some result comparisons, and it would sometimes choose that same server, which I thought was a little odd, considering it's nowhere near my gateway. Still, I don't know how they're chosen. I don't know how long it's been that way, though.
