  1. Thsnks, it looks good for the test... The time frame I have Issues seem to be when my son thinks it is safest to download his movies... By Spring he will be in college so I will have the Bandwidth all to myself.
  2. The router is LIKKSYS wireless. I connect to the route downstairs, my son uses the wireless with his laptop or his computer upstairs. At the 1am to 3am centeral time (Texas) I cannot seem to share Bandwith. The kid is usually downloading stuff overnight (no, I checked I'm not getting FAPPED) I never have tried reloading the setup disk for the route since I connected to 7000. I have not done any checks at the time frame you mentioned but I can say that I cannot check my speed on this site at any time of day connected to the router, I have to be connected to the modem. I agree DIRECWAY does not live up to their hype, but out in the country they have a great advantage... Our only other option is dialup and that option creats a strong desire to commit suicide when connecting to the internet.
  3. The only time I relly have spped problema ia around 2am and I fix that by connecting my modem to the computer instead of the router. D7000 does not like to do a spped test connected to routers it seems. I am no subject matter expert, only stating from personal observations. Sure wish ther was a way to bump the wattage on the system up to about 4 or 5...

  4. No, I don't have it yet but I did order it because the offer right now is worth the chance $49 one time fee. I have 6000 don't really have any complaints about it. My only othe roption is dial up and that makes me want to commit suicide when I used it... The 6000 uses about 150MHZ vs the 7000 at 450MHZ... We will see... Here is my current download speed using Internet Explorer... Keep in mind Firefox is a bit slower... :::..

  5. You are welcome, Keep in mind you need a signal strength of at least 60 from your dish... Also make sure you are up to date on your DW6000 software, go to my direcway and download LCCU_4.0.3.12...
  6. Whoever you talked to in tech support was full of shit.... I have always had a download speed of over 1100 kps as measured by this site and 750+ measured by DIRECWAY, the upload speeds measured by both have been around 56K which is a known as far as the upload speed. Here are a couple of things you need to try.... Go to your internet options and click connections, then click on LAN settings. After that uncheck automatic settings and in the proxy server bos check both blocks, then open avanced settings and type in 192.168.0.1 in the proxy address box type in the number 87 in the port box, then in exceptions type in localhost;192.168.0.1. Once you have done this you should run at least two or more spyware search and destroy programs. At the mimimum you need to open your local folder and delete all files in your temporay internet folder then run defrag...
  7. Speed in the 900's doesn't sound bad for a 5 year old computer with XP... It is likely your computer is using 32 bits XP needs 64 bits and if it doesn't have it it robs from your hard drive. In addition with that age your memory chips are likely 133 instead of 266 and the first thing a computer does is slow down to avoid crashing. For less than $500 you can build a damn fine computer with technology about 6 months behind todays items on the shelf..
  8. It looks like you have done everything but one... You might need to get a service tech out and change satellites. I don't know where you live but my location in Lytle Texas has a choice of 2 satellites. The new one ain't worth spit; I'm locked on the old one.
  9. I have had real bad luck with McAffe (probably didn't spell it right) and XP. It does nasty things to it... Once I used Norton I have had no problems.... If you are into Free Anti Virus then AVG makes a good product, I just wasn't happy with the support, but what do ya want for free?
  10. Damn.... https://image.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 That was scarry... The site is SAFE the results are a bit disturbing...
  11. Keep in mind no single ad aware / spyware program will detect all intrusions. It is best to have at least three to keep your system clean. The two best I have found are Webroot & Xoftspy. Also, to the adult dialer being on a computer that never visits these type of sites... Pop up ads & evil cookies from seemingly decent sites will cause such a situation. Also don't forget if you are using any type of shareware (emule, limewire, etc) adult sites piggyback on these systems and have access to your computer.
  12. Thanks, I thought that was the case... Living out in thcountry really limits one's options...
  13. You must make sure your internet connection settings are as follows. In LAN settings make sure both boxes are checked in proxy server and neither box is checked in automatic connections then click on advanced button. In proxy address you need to have 192.168.0.1 Port 87. In the exceptions you need to type DirecWaysupport.com;192.168.0.1. At this point I strongly suggest about three different brands of Spyware removal & detection. WEBROOT seems the most thorough the second after that is XOFTSPY. MSN now offers one too. No mater the brand one will not locate and destroy all spyware. The next thing to consider is a Windows registry program. Finally I would make sure you have a good Window Washer. All this helps keep your computer clean and operating at optimum speeds. Before using the registry file sent by BUZZ :::..

  14. I have had no major concerns with the Speed of DW6000 since I made sure of a few items that have to be kept up with. (Admittedly it is slower than the 4000 system) You must make sure your internet connection settings are as follows. In LAN settings make sure both boxes are checked in proxy server and neither box is checked in automatic connections then click on advanced button. In proxy address you need to have 192.168.0.1 Port 87. In the exceptions you need to type direcwaysupport.com;192.168.0.1.
