I've been trying to figure out whats been going on with my staminus server for some time. My 100mbit server which once used to max out my 4mbit cable connection is now behaving like a mediocre T1
Ive tested other servers on staminus and all seem to give me the same speeds, ive tried switching from full to half duplex with no change.
The admin (toro) tells me its my cox.net (my isp). if this is true, what are my options, is there anything i can do? I am located in irvine,CA , the same city as my server and there is no reason to be getting crappy 160-200kps downloads
What a fantastic thread. Rather than performing tests yourself, you wrongfully assume that "outside connection seems to be a lot slower than it should be". Your thread topic is misleading to potential customers and your rash assumptions make you look uninformed and irresponsible.
We have handled countless customer duplex and port speed negotiation issues which often result in unidirectional or bi-directional throughput impairment. All of these have contacted us directly via our support system and have had resolution within the same day, if not within the same hour.
A post here simply enlarges the situation to encompass a body of people that have no relation to the situation and need not have their time wasted reading an ultimately pointless thread. It is my opinion that your action be reprimanded for its carelessness.
I posted here merely to get advice on the issue, and to get speed tests from other locations to see exactly what the issue IS.
I am in no way blaming staminus and didnt plan on posting a ticket untill i knew exactly what was wrong, if anything, with staminus's side.
You're response is very hostile considering I am still a very happy customer and sought only to investigate an issue. Please do not take offense to me using this forum as a medium of discussion. Like i said, i just wanted advice and people to check the speed and offer suggestions seeing as i have no other means to speed test.
It ceased being a medium of discussion when you started the thread with "Staminus Speed Issues?" I am not hostile, simply offended by your rash decision-making in spreading potentially negative propganda. When people read thread lists, many often do not go further into a thread: they simply read the subject and make assumptions.
If you are a customer and need help, use our support system, or even our forum. Do not resort to open forum bashing that leads no where. Afterall, we enjoy helping customers
