  1. Jewelz: Seems you had better luck with James than I did. Of course I talked with him at 5 p.m. Eastern time, but he told me my problems were all internet related! Too many users online, and too many band width hogs. Ya right *rolling my eyes* When I talked to him I was running way below normal, and after that it only got worse! I called back at 9 p.m. and waited 45 minutes on hold for advanced techs, when it finally rang through, they disconnected me! Called back, and again could not get through, gave up and shut puter down. Here's my speeds for yesterday, and I am on the PRO plan!!! March 2nd, 11:28PM - 6/6 Kbps March 2nd, 11:13PM - 4/8 Kbps March 2nd, 10:23PM - 8/27 Kbps March 2nd, 09:39PM - 10/17 Kbps March 2nd, 07:21PM - 54/196 Kbps March 2nd, 07:20PM - 57/191 Kbps March 2nd, 06:46PM - 91/207 Kbps March 2nd, 06:45PM - 123/233 Kbps March 2nd, 06:44PM - 100/196 Kbps March 2nd, 06:17PM - 165/225 Kbps March 2nd, 06:17PM - 227/196 Kbps March 2nd, 03:37PM - 169/89 Kbps March 2nd, 03:36PM - 224/209 Kbps March 2nd, 01:45PM - 273/194 Kbps March 2nd, 01:44PM - 148/138 Kbps Now mind you, James said it is not my computer, but too many users. HUH? Today I am running ok, but by later I am sure it will start all over again. Last 2 days has SUCKED!! I am also on Sat Mex5 at 1050 mhz, same as you.
  2. s1: Don't hold me to this, but I believe the way it works for internet satelite, is they try to get you a number closest to 100 as they can. When my satelite was first installed mine was at 91, and right now I am at 84, which is fairly good for satelite. Some people only have in the 50's and 60's and can still get around the internet well. Hope that answers your question.
  3. Direcvictim, my uploads are BAD, look at my first post, only 20Kbps or 3KBS not good at all!!! bigdaddy51: If you are getting fairly stable rates, stay with the 4000, the 6000 too many people are having the same problem I am. I'm not sure if they will let me go back to the 4000, but if this is better by next week, they will either let me or they can shove this you know where. lol My only other choice here is dial-up at 49.0 kbs, but right now that's not looking bad. At least on dial-up they don't fap you if you download. lol
  4. Yes I hear that story all the time, has to be your computer. But after they did ALL this checking on my computer, guess what??? It's them!!! Whatever you do, DO NOT upgrade to the DW6000, as it is far worse than the speeds I got on my DW4000. I just did a speed check on mine, and this is why I have been complaing to Tech Support so much: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 248 Kbps about 0.2 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB) Download Speed is:: 30 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 4 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 34.13 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=YUWFTVCI4 Now in the morning hours I run like this: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 1253 Kbps about 1.3 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB) Download Speed is:: 153 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 22 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 6.69 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=93WVROKL4 My point is, how are they contoling my DW6000? Hmmmmm they have to be and with the 4000 they couldn't, so whatever you do, stay with the 4000 until you HAVE no choice but to upgrade. I call these speeds the DirecWay shaft. lol Engineering has been calling me for 2 weeks now to fix mine, ya right. Still waiting and running crappy.
  5. Uploads for DirecWay suck big time! What are you getting for download speeds? For uploading dial-up beats DirecWay ALL to heck, as they have it limited so badly. I am on the DW6000 and lately towrads evening my downloads look almost as bad as your uploads. Here's my upload speed right now: :::.. Upload Stats ..::: Connection is:: 22 Kbps about 0 Mbps (tested with 97 KB) Upload Speed is:: 3 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 0 times faster than 56K you can upload 1MB in 341.33 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=OAUZTI0CF And around 7 p.m. Eastern my downloads look like this: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 86 Kbps about 0.1 Mbps (tested with 386 KB) Download Speed is:: 11 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 2 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 93.09 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=YE9NPMZIK I have talked to Tech Support Level 3 so much I think they would like to chock me, but this is crazy the speeds we are not getting. They are having problem's at the NOC so they say, just hope they fix all of it soon for us all. That's not alot of help for you I know, but that's about all I know right now.
  6. Jim: I saw those posts by s1 also, and he did delete them before Ca3le could see them. I come to this site to get info and see if I can help anyone, and I actually can say at 55 years old, I do not like the language of F you and all that! That is not language that should be in a public forum that kids might enter into, and I myself don't like hearing. Sorry s1, but you need to grow up and learn to hold back that kind of foul language when in a public forum. And Ca3le, I saw the messages also, I wasn't going to get involved but s1 is misleading you that he is so innocent here. I try not to attack anyone, and try to show respect, and expect the same in return. I don't think that is asking too much from anyone, if it is, then this site isn't anywhere's I want to be. Just my 2 cents worth.
  7. HR: I gave you an e-mail address to someone who IS NOT a newbie and maybe able to help you. Other than that all I can tell you is call DirecWay Tech Support. The Reverand is VERY experienced with the DirecWay systems, I am sure he would help if you e-mailed him. I have had DirecWay for 2 years, but have only had the DW6000 for a couple months now, and I do not have all the answers you need, I wish I did, Again his e-mail address is:
  8. No problem MICROWAVE. I don't know everything about DirecWay, but I am trying to learn. lol Hope Ca3le doesn't mind if when I am unable to lend a hand, I refer them on to the Reverand? If he does just let me know ok? Thanks!
  9. H.R. Ok here is the Reverands e-mail address, I think he would be gald to help you out. He knows alot more than anyone does about the drirecway setups. He'll help you out, just give him time to get to you ok? [email protected] Just tell him I referred you to him.
  10. H.R. : Lets try a few things here. Are you using Internet Explorer? Go to tools at the top, Internet Options, Connections, Lan Settings, and check the box that says Use a proxy server, and the box that says bypass proxy server for local addresses (make sure the box at the top that says automactically detect setting is unchecked). Ok now go to Advanced, and in the first box type this in where it says HTTP: and in Port type in 87. Now at the bottom there is a box that says
  11. This is all really very sad! But the saddest part is, in the meantime, NO ONE is helping ALL the people with problems with their questions on DirecWay. Hope this all can be fixed, as people are asking for help and no one here is helping.
  12. Ok Rev: Just finished what you had said to do, and doesn't seem to have helped. lol Don't think there is any great fix for me, except maybe going back to the 4000 that they can't mess with. Here's my stats at 12:30 p.m. Time to call tech support??? :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 486 Kbps about 0.5 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB) Download Speed is:: 59 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 9 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 17.36 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=LS2NJBIFK Here's my stats from 9:30 a.m. MAJOR changes happening here :::..

LOL Taken at about 1:30 p.m. :::..

  13. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: OMG Speedy Final!!! LOL I looked at your post under Did You Know, and just figured it was the Revs Birthday!!! Ummmmmmm HAPPY BIRTHDAY anyways REV!!!! I am soooooooooooooo embarrassed!!! Hiding my head here. lol Sorry Rev! *hanging head low now*
  14. Try going to www.symantec.com and do a scan there. You'll find it on the left hand side towards the bottom. It says Symantec Security Check. You should show totally stealth there. I find that the one at GRC is scanning my DW6000 and NOT my computer, so it shows all the ports open. Don't think they are setup for the new satelite stuff over at GRC. Try the one at symantec, as much as I detest most of their products I do trust this scan. Hope it helps!!!!
