Something very wrong there... for sure. Haha. Maybe the insides of the router are glowing?
If it's really 10 I have a bug hidden under my desk.
There is a new group of townhouses built behind my property. Gonna take the laptop for a ride and sniff signals. At the moment the suspect AP is -88 which would make sense for something 250 ft+ away.
you know, these days, molasses would take offense to your thread title.
Pikers. I had the Vic-20, Commodore 64, Commodore 128, Commodore 16, and the Commodore Plus-4. Only one I didn't have was the Commodore Pet.
I wrote a Flight Simulator originally for the VIC, and the company had me write versions for every new Commodore computer....
Hey you can still get one, but the price doubled!
So what's -10 db RSSI and -55 and all that jazz mean?
Not sure if this thread has purpose, but if scrolling is slow, it’s your computer not poa
He’s talking about strange signal strength readings in the area of his house on WiFi.
Which does lead to: If it’s hooked to Ethernet direct to the ISP is it still slow?
How do you measure it, what equipment do you need? This stuff fascinates me.
I'm sure there's others,but I'm using Acrylic. "home version" is free. https://www.acrylicwifi.com/en/wlan-software/wlan-scanner-acrylic-wifi-free/
Good point, I'll try going right into the port.
Is it just POA that is slow, or is POA the only site you use?
I'm all confused. In post number 69 I was assuming you were using the wifi with an iThing (that it's fast on) and your computer (that it's slow on) was plugged directly into the box.
Dang I have been laboring under a misimpression.
He’s mentioned the software he’s using. There’s a number of auditing tools that will do it with specific WiFi chipsets, or more esoteric and expensive lab grade gear.
Some really high end RF Service Monitors will do 2 and 5 GHz WiFi amongst other protocols up there in the microwaves. As will many slightly less esoteric spectrum analyzers.
In terms of other devices that can interfere, aside from wireless landline phones, things like RoKu use wifi for the remote controls. I have had issues with the cordless phone (frequency hopping) and I've seen the RoKu signal. Solution is to change channels or put in a wifi extender.
Seems to be isolated to the one laptop. Seems to "wait" alot while browsing. For whatever reason PoA seems to lag in terms of interaction (typed input takes noticeable time to appear on screen) but I'm in and out of it all day. Even temporarily disabled virus protection to see it that was slowing things down, nada.
Off to the Geek Squad I go...
POA just stopped loading on my Mac (Safari).
It starts to load, gets about halfway on the progress bar and doesn't get any farther.
This just started tonight. I tried clearing cookies, cache, and history. i restarted things a few times, but haven't gad any success. Things work fine on my droid tablet with Chrome.
edit:Tried Chrome on the Macbook, POA doesn't load that way, either.
edit edit: The Mac Safari and Chrome finally loaded POA. Took about 7-10 minutes. I did a page refresh and am back to waiting.
I'm browsing POA on an iMac using Safari and things seem normal.
I just shut the Macbook down. I'm tired of dealing with it.
So with a second data point here are we to suspect something awry on the PoA side?
My Mac, 2 different browsers, same behavior: either 5-10 minutes to load the site, another 5-10 to change to any page of the site. Other websites seem OK. Android tablet with Chrome = OK, Win10 PC with Edge = OK, Win7 PC with Firefox and Explorer = OK.
The Mac was working fine until sometime yesterday evening, then POA started giving me problems. I might not have time to work with it again until tomorrow, though. I'll do some Googling on possiblities sometime today.
My iPhone with TapaTalk or Safari continues to work fine, my MacBook with Safari continues to work just fine ... maybe you have bad or lazy moles or something?
There's got to be some kind of smart aleck pseudo-scientific sounding joke about "slow as mole asses" somewhere out there ...
If you put mole asses on Avogadros, do you get a small, slow guacamole?
edit - fixed the typo for Clark...
I Avagadro’s number is a mole, I know avocado is a fruit used in guacamole. Which are you?
I'm kinda feeling like a vegetable right now.
TMI. Feeling yerself iz yer bidness. I don’ need know ‘bout it. K?
Chrome has a timeline tool in the dev tools built in that will tell you exactly what part of the page load is taking so long.
I'll check that out either later tonight or tomorrow. Chrome and Safari both started acting up, just on POA and just on the Macbook. I did try 5-6 other sites with no problems, but that doesn't mean there are others that act the same.
I can *try* to open POA, the status indicators on the browsers show that something is starting, then the progress bar stops about halfway. If I leave it long enough, it does seem to eventually load. I didn't have any browser extensions loaded, I don't think I installed anything at the time this started, and the Mac OS is all up to date.
Ping times out...
I wouldn't be surprised if ping is disabled on www.pilotsofamerica.com
does trace route work for you?
Whatever became of this?
Seems some users were clearly attacking each other, one called the moderators *******, and yet no moderation.
trace route (on comcast) for me goes from denver to dallas to stemmons, tx then runs off the rails
jumped on company vpn to start in PA and eliminate Comcast, and still doesn't reach an end destination - cancelled after 20 unreachable addresses
and yet I can still post here (but haven't logged off and back on)
The problems I had last night were on my home network and wireless router. It only affected my Mac (both Chrome and Safari) and not my Android tablet (Chrome).
The PCs I tested with today, and am using right now, are on a different network and have never showed problems.
Also... Alternative reads of the title: POA Slower than Molasses
PoA members are thick in the head
Clear dis on Molasses, as though it is the lowest hurdle to be cleared
What's wrong with Slow? Could just be someone who is deliberative or pensive
Quick responses are not always the most inciteful
Secretly I think net neutrality is at work here, since this group has some issues with neutrality.
Is this the next word that comes to mind thread?
