Bufferbloat Test

Recommended Posts

Anyone try out this new bufferbloat test from WaveForm?

They have a separate speed test and stand alone bufferbloat test.

http://www.waveform.com/tools/bufferbloat 

Since DSLReport is not really showing bufferbloat grade anymore this is a new place to check it out.

Are you having issues with DSLreports?

tried it and got the standard A+ but It seems in line with other tests where the results don’t tally up with ping plotter, more so when I turned off QoS. 
interesting though, thanks for sharing.

Yes for a while now and I am not the only one.

DSLReport will not show bufferbloat bar or grade.

I have to mess with the settings and sometimes it works but go back to not working again after closing the page or browser.

So since it does not work consistently anymore I found the waveform bufferbloat test.

I've had no net problems since adding the AP so I'm very worried to change anything.

hi fuzy is this a good score with the r2?

logically yes even if I can still refine it!
I also tested with the qos of my er12 and I got the same score with 300/300!

Your upload seems to be the problem there so just change that on CC, start testing at intervals of 10, when you get to one that is better then go in intervals of 5 and you should find a value that brings it down the most
