Does anyone else use the speedtest.net site to check their broadband download and upload speed?
I used to use this site and the numbers were about as I expected. I hadn't used this site for a few months until recently, and this has been since I've had ZoneAlarm. Now my download and upload numbers are really, really weird. I mean, whereas my normal and expected download numbers would be anywhere between 200 and high 400's kpbs and upload 80 to 100 kbps, now my download shows up as somewhere between 10 and 20 kbps (lower than when I was on dial-up)and the upload (and this is the REALLY surprising part) in the 90's to 100's kbps. Other speedtest sites used within minutes of trying this one show the numbers as I would expect, 200 to high 400's kbps down and 80 to 100 kbps up. One of those sites, testmy.net, actually says that ZoneAlarm may cause issues with the upload readings, but I didn't find that to be the case for me.
Other people on my ISP use the speedtest.net site and their numbers are quite as expected, it's just mine that are weird. Would ZoneAlarm be doing this, do you think? I'm not getting any alerts showing up. The software is the only thing that has changed in this equation, I have the same router as I always have.
