October 2012


Enjoy another issue of NetEqualizer News! This month, we announce availability of our new NetEqualizer GUI, remind you about the upcoming Midwest Technical Seminar at Washington University – St. Louis, and offer a shipping credit to our international customers as part of a spooky NetEqualizer Halloween celebration. As always, feel free to pass this along to others who might be interested in NetEqualizer News.

A message from Art…
Art Reisman, CTO – APconnections

During October in the United States, all things become about Halloween. This is big business here, rivaling Christmas in sales, particularly of costumes, candy, and scary decorations. I must admit that I love Halloween and do go all out each year decorating my yard with spooky animatronic figures, a mini fake cemetery, and pumpkins from the garden!

As I have read that many countries love Halloween, we are offering our own “treat” this year to help our international customers celebrate! For a limited time, we will ship internationally at a scary good price ($275 max shipping credit). Read more about this promotion below. Happy Halloween!

We love it when we hear back from you – so if you have a story you would like to share with us of how we have helped you, let us know. Email me directly at I would love to hear from you!

New NetEqualizer GUI Now Available

Over the last couple issues of NetEqualizer News, we’ve discussed our 6.0 Software Update, and in particular our new GUI, quite a bit. Well, our beta testing was a big success, and the GUI is now available to those who wish to have it. The actual GA release will be available in one to two weeks.

Here are some of the exciting new features you’ll see in the new GUI:

New Dashboard Feature

Menus Aligned by Key Functions

Consistent Look and Feel

Professional Quota API

Check out the previous issue of NetEqualizer News for details on each of the above features.

Our beta also resulted in great recommendations from our customers. Here are some additional features we’ve added based on feedback thus far:

Dashboard Auto Refresh on three different time intervals.

– A Bytes/Bits Conversion Calculator to help you set up your NetEqualizer.

– An Old GUI/New GUI Map that helps you see where interfaces in the old GUI now reside in order to make the transition to the new GUI easier.

Please email us if you would like to have the new NetEqualizer GUI! All new units will ship with the new GUI, and, as stated above, the GA release will be in one to two weeks.

Editor’s Choice: The Best of Speeding Up Your Internet

By Art Reisman – CTO – APconnections

Over the years we have written a variety of articles related to Internet Access Speed and all of the factors that can affect your service. Below, I have consolidated some of my favorites along with a quick convenient synopsis.

How to determine the true speed of video over your Internet connection:

If you have ever wondered why you can sometimes watch a full-length movie without an issue while at other times you can’t get the shortest of YouTube videos to play without interruption, this article will shed some light on what is going on behind the scenes.

FCC is the latest dupe when it comes to Internet speeds:

After the Wall Street Journal published an article on Internet provider speed claims, I decided to peel back the onion a bit. This article exposes anomalies between my speed tests and what I experienced when accessing real data.

Photo Of The Month

Autumn Walk in the Aspens

Winter is coming here in Colorado. We’ve already had a few very light snows in the area. Despite the onset of cold weather, it really is one of the most beautiful times here. The trees are at their most brilliant and the snow-capped mountains contrast scenically with the bare foothills. If you’ve never been up to the mountains to check out the changing aspen trees, it’s an experience you won’t forget.
