Recently I have become totally fed up with my DW 4000. (OK, I've been fed up since about the 3rd day I had it, but only now am I going to do something about it.)
My speed test is below -- it's showing speeds of around 2kB/s. It is seriously killing me. I run a web company out of my house, and I would give my left pinky toe to have speeds that did not just absolutely suck. I'm not asking for blazing DSL speeds or anything. Just, you know, at least as good as a 56k modem.
I've tried both Cablenut (with VanBuren's settings) and DrTCP (with these settings: http://www.dslreports.com/faq/2019
), but neither seemed to do anything. I don't know what else to try, so if anyone could point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.
Oh, for what it's worth: the modem is connected to an XP computer, which serves as the gateway for my Ubuntu box. The speeds are equally bad on both computers, though at least the Windows computer can handle downloads -- the Linux box generally stalls with any file over about 100k. My signal strength hovers around 94%, and my satellite information says "99 degrees W, 1250 MHz".
