    Right above the speedometer i have a google add. Maybe it's the browser?With the windows 10 app it just shows the speedometer.At the top it says,ping,download and upload no line.
    But never the less if there is a line it should wave i would think because it shows coming and going traffic no?

    I have a green bar for download with 3 small loops & purple bar for upload with many loops.The server installer said the download bar should be perfectly straight!when you get loops than internet is loosing strength,than you get buffering.

    Speed of connection is one thing, (well two if you count upload/download) "ping" and one other thing "jitter" are also important, if the ping is too high, the the connection may be a very long one, ping measures the lag time between two IP devices on a network connection, the lower the ping the better.

    Now jitter on a network connection may not affect some types of down or uploads, but if its too high on the download side you could have problems with that download, it may cause the download to take longer then normal, or for it to re-start, the speed thests will show the ping but you have to go a differant speed test web site to get a jitter measurement.
