  1. When the guy came to install mine i already had one layin around, and he diddnt even connect my coax to the darn surge protector = /  And on top of that he wanted to charge me extra to install my dish on the second floor of my house.. he wanted to install it like 10 ft off the ground.. so i got up on the ladder and installed my own dish, just let him point it.. haha

  2. This is a waiting thing most likely.

    You have to just wait out the time, until you're connection is Un Capped.

    My ISP had my connection cap limit set at 10 GB of file downloading per month before, and if I were to download more than that, my connection would slow down to a dial up speed at times.

    Although, I now pay the company an extra five dollars a month which gives me un limited downloading. So, I have no cap limit.....And could download every song in the world! :haha: Without a connection slow down with internet speed!

    So, maybe that's something to look into? :D

    What ISP are you using =P

  3. Well.. Welcome to the forums... Direcway speeds are not impressive.. as you can see, but the TCPoptimizer can make a difference, try the post that "The Rev" made and follow that, i would reccomend using internet exp, usually best speeds are associated to that.. firefox is great but its just a fad.. Imho.. And the reason your downloads "Suck" is because direcway monitors your bandwith usage, and they "Fap" you also known as "Fair Acces Policy". head over to www.mydirecway.com and click "CHeck your usage" and u can see if you have been fapped.. usually when u drop to 4kbps.. thats being fapped =P also.. download getright..  or some other download manager.. since fapping runs on a 4 hour time, try to limit your download speeds or when it drops to 4kbps.. stop it and wait 4 hours = / Thats the best advice i can give you since i also had this problem, its hard from going to 3.0mbps cable to .5mbps satalite.. But.. im just glad i dont have to have dialup.. Hope i helped.. atleast a bit


  4. Thanks for the reply again.. here i go =P

    I understand how direcway works, i can ping my system from non local machines, from several locations.. and i know its my machine because if the 900 ping =P

    I dont have a firewall and i do understand how VNC porting works.. BUT.. im using a "Mod" of VNC called TightVNC.. Very easy to use, ive tried the original WinVNC.. So i was used to using the -5920 and when i enter it. it gives me port 80.. so that is not the problem.. I am using a router on my system.. but i am routing the ports through it right to my IP, My network is as follows.. =P

    1. DW6000

    2. Linksys 5 port router ---- into my pc

    3. D-Link wireless router with DHCP DIsabled.. (expencive wireless switch)

    Im still trying to figure this out because it would be a nice feature to have incase i need to access my pc remotely.. Thanks for your help brad.. i appriciate it.. But i still think that Dway disables external ports.. i mean.. hell... they dont even let us download over 200 megs =P I wouldnt doubt that they block webserver ports..



  5. Hey, im sure this question will be pretty easy for Rev =P but how can i allow ports to be open through the DW6000? For fun i tried to set up a VNC Server on my machine, for emergency use and whatnot.. but when i tried to use it i was not allowed through.. and i even tried many common ports.. i.e 80, 21, 81... stuff like that =P Does anyone know if i can open ports on the modem? or are they open and something was not working right? Thanks in advance!


  6. Im gonna try using GetRight, but this fap is kinda stupid if u ask me.. im paying 100 bucks a month and i cant even download a full file.. its a legit download too, not like im downloading torrents or anything.. I think their FAP policy is pretty dumb.. God i cant wait until my area "Surbanizes" so that i can get some decent internet.. yar! thanks for the help guys, ill try getright and let you know what happens, btw rev.. you the man of answers.. thanks alot guys.

  7. Say, if you have any trouble's getting her to run right after you get ICS removed from your Host ...just give us a jingle!  (Don't forget that when you reinstall LCCU that you'll need to go into your browser (IE6 that is), and turn back on both proxies by placing in check in both boxes, then click on the ADVANCED tab and make sure it says on Port 87!  (Otherwise your DW6000 will behave a bit strangely)!  Also, in that same area, when you click on the Advanced Tab there is an Exceptions box at the bottom.  Enter this info into that box (cut and paste) to get max attack with your browser:  DirecWaysupport.com;192.168.0.*; <------that second # is the IP for my Router, so you'll most likely have a different # assigned to it than that.  (This just makes it possible to get into your router via the browser ...otherwise you don't need the second Router # at all.

    BTW: thanks for the commands to put in IE, seems to run a bit smoother now.. never had LCCU installed..

  8. Im not having problems using my internet, but i just wanted a simpler way to use it.. whats the point of using a router if dw6000 is already doing it.. it just complicates it more..  So thats why im using my router w/ nat/dhcp disabled because dway does it for me, so all my pcs are 192.168.0.XXX since it assigns the ip's. I just wanted to know if you could Disable it.. i would rather use ICS because i like the connection right into my pc so i dont have to worry about opening ports and stuff..

  9. Thanks for checking for me, The only reason i asked that is because i was having a hard time using ICS with dw6000 because the modem is assigning a priviate IP to my pc not allowing windows to bind the shared connection to that local IP.. and to the best of my knowlage you cannot change the ip that windows uses for ics... I guess DirecWay's use of that pirivate ip is good for people who want to plug in and go.. but using a router is such a bad idea for the DW systems because your modem already has NAT..  so right now im using a 150 dollar  wireless router as a wireless switch : (

  10. First of all, Hey!

          Ive been browsing these forums for a few days and finally registered. I see there is alot of helpful information but i tried some and my speed stays the same. One question i had was the use of Proxies that most of you guys use.. Why? How? 

    I have a DW6000 Personal System and these are my speeds..
