Using the Mediacom speed test
Before starting the speed test, there are a few steps you’ll want to take to get the most accurate results.
1. Connect your computer directly to the modem using a Cat5e or higher Ethernet cable. Once connected, you may need to go to your computer’s network settings to select the wired connection.
2. Unplug your router from the modem. This will automatically disconnect Wi-Fi enabled devices that would otherwise skew test results. Note: If your modem and router are a single device, you’ll need to disconnect or turn off any devices connected to the network. This includes mobile devices, smart TVs, smart home devices, gaming systems and Wi-Fi enabled cameras.
3. Close all other open windows or applications on your computer.
4. Click “Start Testing Speed” to begin the speed test.
