MattR: I'm only seeing SNAP-36 (North Shore, Auckland). Performance is normal.

Speedtest.net thinks I'm in Wellington, but it has never thought I was in Auckland.



speedtest will simply go by IP location. 



im seeing very minorly slower than normal speeds (sync speeds havent changed in the last 30 or so days.) ild say its just things settling back in and im not too concerned.




pre fault being:




as i said, not really not concerned about it. and ignore my location according to speedtest the ip location is simply wrong (note high latency at peak topic, snap are running smoke pings on my connection, and so staticly assigned).


when i was on a normally allocated dynamic address, 95% of the time it would be auckland, the occasional Wellington though. Point being, speedtest.net is simply uses a geo-ip guess.


Snap-36 though, i havent had the pleasure? of this POP before however.

Yes it does, however when my connection was peering in Auckland (potentially as I'm not sure what Snap-36 is) it was saying I lived in Auckland connected to Auckland with a 5ms ping; now it says wellington and I have to manually select Auckland for a test.  Geolocation also places my connection in Wellington... Not long ago I was also in Christchurch according to these sites, the last time that happened was before Snap rolled out the peering in Auckland!

is this actually affecting your connection though? or is it simply a nuisance sorta thing..

It makes no difference where you are in the country or through which region in the country you are connecting as far as speedtest.net is concerned.
The IP address pool Snap use to give out to customers has a bunch of different regions according to the geo location tool that speedtest.net uses.
Reboot your router a few times and watch how speedtest.net thinks you change between Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch as your IP address changes.
Edit: If you're in Auckland and are being routed via Christchurch (which is what was happening after the failure on Friday night) your ping will be higher than if it went straight through Auckland.

dont do that.

assuming you have a fritzbox, simply click the reconnect internet (or Drop PPP) button...

rebooting will likely affect your line, assuming VDSL.

Benoire: MattR, where does speedtest put you?


Wellington, but it always has. Probably due to my static IP address. I'm getting 5ms pings to Orcon Auckland speedtest server, which wouldn't be happening if I was connected to a PoP other than Auckland.

probably the same static range as im currently on.

which is simply located in Wellington.


it also depends on how up to date the geoip location is too.


take for example, the steam authentication, it sees my IP address as auckland, unlike speedtest.net

Ah so could Snap-36 be a static IP range? Hio77, do you have a static ip at all?

snap-36 is simply another POP. nothing todo with your ip.


im currently on a static ip, yes, untill the issue in the other thread is resolved, as a dynamic ip wouldnt help snap being able to smokeping my connection.

Ok, just curious.

yeah, i was surprised it said auckland, so i did it a second time with another device, with gps disabled to insure it wasnt gps based.


but it just goes to prove the point, different services will have out of date geo-ip locations, or they will use different systems for finding the geo-ip location, which could result in a different city given.

connection throughput is still not as good as usual, 85% approx of usual, which is alot better than it was on the weekend, but not how it usually preforms

currently still on SNAP-36 as well.

hmm anyone else on SNAPDSL-AKL? or am i a test subject? (or is it victim! lol)

international speeds, where i normally get 7MB/s to my server in NL, is averaging 400KB/s today, so i suspect things with window scaling might not be quite right yet.

Yes I noticed (again using speedtest as its quick and dirty) that I was at 10mbps with a connection at 20mbps... upload was fine at almost 9mpbs.
