  1. FYI: I spoke to someone that had received word that we should be looking at November before getting to upgrade to the 7000. They said that Direcway will be following their typical release schedule. That puts the upgrade option 2 months behind the new-install release. When did the 7000's go live? There is still no word on upgrade cost, but at least we are getting closer (and yet farther away). If it were anyone other than D-way, I would be amazed at the fact that they are waiting so long to do the upgrade offer. But, it IS D-way, so once it sank in... I wasn't really that surprised.
  2. I am trying to find info out there about when Dway is going to allow us to upgrade to the 7000's, and how much it will cost us. I called the upgrade line 2 nights ago and the lady had nothing for me. I'm anxious to get the better upload speeds. DL speeds are good as is, but any improvements wouldn't hurt. Does anyone know if the latency numbers have fallen? The Dway website is now claiming 30 sec. Right now, my real time is around 60-90 during normal operation.

  5. Should have been more specific, sorry. I'm running XP Pro, P4 3.0, 1gig RAM. I'm using the DW6000 system. I regularly run regclean and JB16 powertools reg cleaner. I use MS Spyware beta1 to remove spyware (not actively), and Symantec Corperate to keep myself free of viruses (also not actively). I have also recently defrag'ed. After running the LCCU again last night, I got a connection of 192. That's about as good as I have seen. I am using firefox browser, and it is configured with the proxy correctly.

  7. Hey all. 2nd post. WOOT! Ok, I have had my Dway service for nearly a year. My speeds "feel" slow as molassas. I've done a little light reading on this site, and I've seen some remarkable speeds (in comparison to what I KNOW I'm getting). I'm an online gamer, and while Dway isn't the best solution, it IS my only choice. I could have sworn for the longest time that I was getting FAP'ed. Well, I stumbled upon the tool in the mydirecway member section. It tells you your access and whether or not you've gotten hit with the FAP. I've done some pretty stout gaming with 2 PC's (Wife an
  8. Hey all. Just stumbled across these forums the other day. Kinda cool to find some folks suffering under similar circumstances. Anywho... First post... here goes: I'm on Dway and... yeah... It blows. As most of you.... it's my only solution. Well, I'm never satisfied with medeocre, and I'm always on the hunt for better and best. In my quest, I found this service: http://www.wildblue.com/ They are a satellite provider with a great deal faster service and MUCH better price than anything I've found yet. Here's what they offer. Hope this stays in some form resembling a tab
