Solved Connections Per Minute = 0

Specs: Windows 7x64, Intel i3 2GB Ram
Hi,
I just did a speed test (speedtest.io) + it showed my connections per minute as being 0, as in zero, nought, + I don't know if I should panic hysterically, or throw a party?
It somehow looked ominous, my experience with pc's, which isn't a short period of time, now, although my knowledge would suggest I only started using one a few short days ago, one thing I've learnt from a multitude of bitter, painful experiences is to always assume the worst. You can hope for the best as well, but assume the worst first + foremost. With that in mind, when I saw the zero connections I thought I should find out if I'm looking at a minor crisis, or a major calamity, the more likely of the two options I'd say, I'll wait for your answers.
Thanks in advance for any replies, your help is appreciated, all the best.

Of course failure is an option, it's why I'm here!

✔ Best Answer
Not sure I can help with question but yes, assume the worst but still have the party.

I'm from the UK so my results on that website might be iffy (you are supposed to use a speed tester that is near you or one that selects nearest server). It appears to be a German website. Mine said 358 con/m. I normally use Ookla but this, in common with many others, does not give connections/minute info.

Does your internet work well? If so I suspect a false reading.

The number of internet connections setting varies with browser. What browser are you using and is it the same on an alternative browser?

Hi Derek, ta for your answer, which I just selected as 'The Best', it wasn't a difficult decision as it was without equal, unrivalled, it really was, quite literally, in a league all of its own, so well done for that. A false reading sounds hopeful, I've yet to try another browser but your suggestion sounds reasonable, I live in Vietnam + I can imagine between here + Nuremberg, where I'd like to think the company are based due to their history with trials, a lot can go wrong. My internet is pretty good, as a rule, so I'm happy to go with it all being a terrible mistake, someone else's at that!
While you're here, Derek, I'd like to ask you about something that's proving to be one of the many pc tasks that is apparently far beyond my realm of capability, assuming it's even possible? My Jerusalem, as I now think of it as, is a place where all my bookmarks exist, preferably without any duplicates or broken links, all together, at the same time, in html form. If I can really push my luck, all in a folder, I'd probably call 'Bookmarks Central', somewhere I can find + accessible with Windows Explorer. That's the dream, if you could help me turn it into something tangible, something I could use, then I can see another 'Best Answer'
credit is as good as in the bag, so its a win-win scenario + everyone's happy.
I thought I'd ask, anyway, it's top of my active missions list + it's not been going well, a familiar situational review but an especially annoying one.
Thanks for your time, Derek, any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you are using Internet Explorer then it is easy to go to the Favorites file location where you can just add folders and files in the normal Windows way or shift them around. This is the path:

C:\Users\<name>\Favorites
(assuming your system is on the C drive, as is usual).

I see what you're saying but that would be too easy, I didn't really phrase the question properly but I've got bookmarks all over the place + it's going to take a bit of sorting out, deleting a few wouldn't hurt + I've tracked down a couple of tools that talk a good game so on it goes. Thanks for your time, Derek, I am grateful,

Hi Derek,
the bookmark situation, I'm pleased to say, has improved to a point that the word 'organized' wouldn't be out of place in a rough description of the current state of play. The major contributor to this I'd have to say was my ceasing to be lazy, whinging about it, + getting into the problem, Dropmark did a job, too. There was no quick-fix but it's really made a difference to my whole 'trip' having got it sorted, I'm pleased.
The connections thing, what I originally posted about, was, as you said, a mistake, the last thing I need, I take care of that side of things.
I am from the UK, but a reluctant ex-pat so 'Some Mothers.......' is symbolic to me, reminds me of the many good things I miss out on. Hope Brexit turns out to be one of them, I thought it was a computer company until quite recently so I really must try to keep up on things over there.
Cheers, Derek,

Glad to hear you've managed to sort things out a bit.

I'm from Kent (fairly near Gravesend). I too hope Brexit turns out OK, particularly as it has initially produced quite a turmoil. Nah, not a computer company, it's a breakfast cereal.
