Sorry to hear about the pop ups, they sound frustrating.
I actually just spoke about your case with our lead QA guy. Turns out we are seeing a small number of our members report similar issues. The network guys are working on it, as it seems to be connected to some connection quirks.
Hang tight, I do not think it will be too long before they are able to nail down a fix. (They are pretty smart guys)
My local download speed from Dallas is
My download speed from Owasso, MI is 2.03, 1.47, 1.11 Mbs.
My loacal upload speed to Dallas is
My upload speed to Owasso, MI is 1.68, 1.76, 1.61 Mbs. (Never seen upload speeds faster than down loads!)
My latency with Dallas is 30 ms.
My latency with Owasso, MI is 190, 185, 213 ms.
For comparison I ran the same tests with against University of
Michigan’s server in nearby Flint Mi.
Download speed from Flint, MI is 17.50, 17.13, 19.50 Mbs.
Upload speed to Flint, MI is 2.16, 2.15, 2.16 Mbs.
Latency with Flint, MI is 63, 49, 60 ms.
CE name server seems to be running real slow.
Just a thought.
Thanks for taking the time to post them. I will forward this post on to our network techs.
2 quick thoughts
1: It is interesting to me that your device was pinging Owosso, as we have a server setup much closer to you. Granted, our network configuration is not my area of expertise, but It still seems odd that you were being routed all the way out here...
2. Let us know if you continue to experience trouble. Our server ninjas found and fixed the root cause of the issue sometime later yesterday afternoon. I suspect that it may take a little while yet for all the silliness to be gone but it certainly should be headed that way.
"Although some services like the member center are tied to Owosso, all the client communications operate through a different set of IPs. Customers can find out what Datacenter they are accessing by visiting http://dev.cvnt.net/ (functional, but not pretty...)"
I understand all is working now. I reran the speed test on Owasso and today it is an acceptable 18 Mbs Down and 2.1 Mbs up.
