    This side or that side?


    If I'm watching video on the net, and it starts skipping, is there a way to check whether it's my ISP that's overloaded, or the server or the ISP on the other side?


    Thanks.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Sometimes Speedtest.net can help determine if your ISP is the issue. If it looks ok, then it is probably the "other side". That said, if your local network has other traffic on it, that can also be the issue. For example, if I am stream video and it starts "stuttering", I check to see if my wife is uploading stuff on the net. Uploads definitely cause bottlenecks with most ISPs.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
