Joe is having issues with packet loss on his internet connection. He's been using BroadbandReports.com to monitor it, but now he hears that the website is going to be shut down. Leo says he hasn't heard that. You can use ICSI Netalyzr. It will give you comprehensive testing of everything from speed testing to ping testing, packet loss, and buffer bloat. If streaming on Netflix is a concern, check out Netflix's FAST test. He's like a monitor service like DSLReports. Leo says your router may have that ability, check your logging features. But there are plenty of apps online that will do it. Nsider is one, and TestMy.Net is another.
