Recently on setting up a new internet connection, I ran a speed test via ( speedtest.net ) with produced the following error

Latency Test Error – Could not connect to the test server A firewall could be blocking the connection or the server might be having some issues

Pinging Google DNS Server 8.8.8.8 came up with a sold under 15m response , strange?

I tried playing around with the MTU to no avail either

Turns out this is actually a DNS issue, the local DNS servers had forwarders set to their Old ISP , so change the DNS to the new ISP or Google fixed this!

Have a site without a server and want to test the speed?

Login to Synology using SSH via Putty and navigate to somewhere writable e.g. Volume1 

cd /Volumes/Volume1/
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py

Make the speedtest.py script executable.

chmod +x speedtest.py

Run SpeedTest
./speedtest.py
