The POP you were on was probably changed, same as with me.

Hi guys

Sorry for the delay in posting. Am starting to build a new PC, so am a bit distracted.

Still having international bandwidth issues.

I haven't been able to tease out my gateway information out of pfsense, but doing a traceroute shows  1.65.69.111.dynamic.snap.net.nz (111.69.65.1) as my first hop. (And no, that is not our IP address.)

Mine local (within NZ) and Aus speedtest all hitting my line speed 100/50
LA Dreamhost test looks fine also.


What router are you using? maybe try another router?

It's an older (Core 2 duo era) running pfsense. Our connection has been very good up until now. As stated, speed to local servers can basically max out our line speed (90mbit/s+). It is only international that we are having issues with.

I'll try our old srp527w this evening to ensure there is no issues with pfsense.

Try either:
On the System Dashboard (the main page) click on the [+] icon below the title and add the gateways widget.
Or go to System > Routing page which should show the gateway for each route that has been setup.

The one generated by the system at installation for me is WAN_PPPOE for me, with a gateway of 111.69.17.16

Oops! Silly me!

For some reason I thought this was showing our IP address embarassed. Obviously it is not.

Our gateway address is: 111.69.67.209        (209.67.69.111.dynamic.snap.net.nz)

Have been experiencing slow international as well with Snap on UFB 100/50 in Hamilton. I am on the Snap-185 PoP.




Do whatever you want to do man.

The Fritzbox's automatically force IPV6.

Contact your tech support and ask them to stop this.

Made a huge difference to mine for Facebook, youtube etc

Have you called Snap see if they can help on their end of things, line monitoring/line setting and so on?

Yes. Gave them a call Friday morning. The very friendly helpdesk guy couldn't help and suggested I send an email with more details. I sent an email that morning and have not hear anything back (yet).

Hi all,

I have a request.

Could somebody please suggest a decent offshore (preferably not Australia) test file (not a "speedtest", an actual file), and even better, tell me what download speeds you are able to obtain for it?


I was able to obtain about 5MB/s today - from four seperate multi-segment downloads from different servers.
