  1. well I finally got dsl in foothills of Yosemite, after suffering with Dwy/hughes for 5 years, I finally have speeds about equal to when I first got cable modem back when it was called @home (that was about 1998 - I think it was the internet Al Gore invented - lmao) not near as fast as modern dsl, but it tales a dump on hughesnet less then half the price... funny how theres no TDS poss in the last 2 years, I guess thats a good thing... ::::::::::..

  2. Well as promised my modem was on the front porch (well in the front yard actually, lol) this afternoon and hooked it up and winthin seconds had this first result: :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 2243 Kbps about 2.24 Mbps (tested with 3072 kB) Download Speed is:: 274 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 481 Kbps about 0.5 Mbps (tested with 1013 kB) Upload Speed is:: 59 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Main) Test Time:: 2008/11/06 - 4:48pm D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-UHL8O6N7B U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id
  3. So finally after rumors for years and hearing from the local tech "just another couple weeks or so" since February, I ordered my shiny new dsl modem. My self install is set up for next Thursday through TDS Telecom. Ill be getting a 3Mb connection for 29.95 for one year and 50 a month after that! A real bargain compared to the 74 a month I shill out to HN for "always on broadband". Didn't the FCC just redefine broadband? Maybe HN will have to stop advertising their service as such. Anyway I just didn't come in to gloat (though it does feel good, lol) but instead to thank everybody here at
  4. Has anybody heard of this software? is the company legit and is this really legal? Dos it let you tune into actual stations or is it just some peer to peer deal lets you download shows? seems like one of them too good to be true deals... http://www.dtv4pc.net/hyd/long/main_nflf/se/index.html
  5. so after consulting with the ECC Guy - they want to put me on amc 6 6k - so the guy comes out after a week of dogging me making excuses every day and cant pick up the bird for whatever reason as there ws nothing blocking the line of sight. He ended up using the second choice of the ECC guy (he said that first choice had very few users) dont rem what it was gmc 13 or something. My signal strength is 80 my acp is 87 and these are my stats taken today at 1:30 PST... :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 1002 Kbps about 1 Mbps (tested with 1013 kB) Download Speed is
  6. yeah sorry bout posting in 2 places - after i posted there i decided that maybe a new topic was needed...
  7. OK so the weekend went by and my speeds were ok - soon as I got up this morning and tried it was dogging bad - got an all time low of 3 down 10 up (woohoo world record) so I called back and they say its my gateway and are sending a free truck roll to point me to a new transponder...will update when this happens - thanks for all your comments and inboxed messages too! by the way these guys are way cool and are doing whatever it takes to make me happy at this point... I was also told that so may people have upgraded to the pro and pro + plan that the fastest plan (consistently) is the home
  8. after I posted I continued to search for a way of contacting somebody there. I found a number for (toll call but I have unlimited long distance )hughes corporate office (301-428-5500) and much to my suprise was quickly transferred to a senior exec in charge of customer service - he gave me a 2 month credit and is doing some research, he seems to think I may have a bad modem and will send me out a new one once he verifies this! oh happy day! lol

  10. Howdy good folks here at Testmy - I hope somebody can help me with some advice - a phone number or a real email address so I can get this thing straight! below is a copy of an email I am trying to send to Hughes... when I hit submit I get the - Internet Exploder cannot display this web page message. I am at the end of my rope - live in rural america, no dsl coming soon and work from home (when I can actually get online) __________________________________________________________________________________ hello let me start out by saying I have been a loyal customer fro almost 4 years
  11. Private - I have been having problems with my browsing speed for 2 months straight and have just been getting the run around with these people - below is an email I am trying to send to them today, but conveniently when I hit submit the next thing I see is Internet exploder cannot display this web page... and it does the same thing if i try and chat live with somebody - I am not sure how you found somebody who did something for you as I have searched and found nothing but posts asking people if they know of a way to actually get through to somebody there... I even checked their corporate si
  12. Yep not pissed at all anymore thanks to you all... Van
  13. Hi there- Sorry been away a bit - life got hectic there for a minute. I ran my acp test 5 times and got between 64 and 70 everytime. Also I think my signal drift was due to wind and the shoddy install. So I have had 2 days of rain since I posted last and it worked like a charm both times. No outtage whatsoever and signal stayed above 57 at all times I was looking. Never really pored, but its a far cry better then losing signal when it sprinkled a little. Last thing is I checked my feed horn and its still water tight for the moment, though I have the drill bit on standy by. Hope you all had
  14. OK I made the big move this weekend and I have 70 signal strength. Gotta wait for some weather to see if thats good enough to keep it from dropping out with the slightest amount of rain. Oh and guess what? My dish in fact was NOT grounded at all, unless you count the three lag bolts punched into my roof through the shingles and plywood. I am glad I did this, another winter up there and it prolly would have blown off my roof. I have gotten mixed comments about wether or not my dish is presently grounded enough. The pole is about 3.5 feet in the ground, though I didint read the comment about pou
  15. well the cement is barely 24 hours old and by the time I got home today it was dark out... Im prolly looking at doing the move this weekend if the weather holds up... as soon as I make the switch I will post my results up here and let you all know how I did...again thanks for all the advice, and for getting me hooked on these boards lol... been doing alot of reading Vanschlack
