  1. <snip> now if I could only get the upload speed up, I'd be happy. BD51 </snip> ME TOO! That 5kbps is at 3am, I'm wondering if like me, your speed drops to 1 or 2k during peek hours.
  2. Sounds like it comes down to how bad you wanna play the games. I'm with you on that one, I'm chomping at the bit to play my fav games. <snip> I never even noticed much,. that there was a problem </snip> What kind of upload speeds are you getting?
  3. They're driving and I AM the bus, IF you know what I mean...
  4. at 5 am I can get - :::.. Upload Stats ..::: Connection is:: 49 Kbps about 0 Mbps (tested with 386 KB) Upload Speed is:: 6 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 1 times faster than 56K you can upload 1MB in 170.67 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=62HNDAVWX Web pages actualy load and stuff, its really cool.. Thanks Direcway for allowing me this early morning bandwidth, feel free to force me to share it with a few million subscribers once my coffeee is ready.
  5. Back to normal.. I feel much better now. :::.. Upload Stats ..::: Connection is:: 5 Kbps about 0 Mbps (tested with 386 KB) Upload Speed is:: 1 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 0 times faster than 56K you can upload 1MB in 1024 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=EW03R6NBL
  6. Update on my situation. Today I visited - http://www.broadbandreports.com/faq/2019 I downloaded Dr TCP and made the tweaks. While its by no means uploading as it should, Its improved enough that I'm getting better performance Well, I copied the adress and lost my upload test results. grrr Anyway, I've gone from 1kbps upload to 5kbps upload. Hope this helps others who are having trouble with upload speeds. Y'all Take Care.
  7. It is a great name isn't it? It's just a shame its MY name! Thanks for the warm welcome.
  8. Last time I got fapped my speed was 4kbps.. So if you're FAP is 125kbps, my advice is to find some cool stuff and download...ALOT of stuff. LOL DW lie? <sarcasm> It may be your virus scanner causing this problem </sarcasm> Better luck in the future, I hope.
  9. Polarization? And you say this didn't affect the signal strength show on Navigator? I wouldn't be suprised if that were it, nor would I be suprised if I paid an installer to come out and have him say no, its just fine. The level 2 tech guy put me on hold forever to do some checking, maybe thats what he was chekcing, Next steap is waiting 2 or 3 days for a engineer to call me back. I dont know.. No way I'm throwing more money at this systyem. I miss file transfers, I miss gaming, I'm not a downloader, and ISDN has already been ordered. Thanks for the advice though, thanks a bunch! P.S. Sorry if I sound frustrated, I'm frustrated.
  10. No cable, No DSL, and my best dial up connection is 26.4 I'm tucked away 8 miles back into a wildlife management area. VERY lucky to get ISDN, that I ordered today. WOOHOO! In another post a fellow suggested my dish could be out of alignment, could that be the case eventhough I have good signal strength? Seems ot me if that were the case D'way's techs would have checked that, or said something about it.. And if not, just another reason to drop this and go with ISDN, afterall, I only wasted 8 hours of my time on the phone with them... I'd be pretty PO'ed about an oversight like that.
  11. Yes, they had me reset the modem and ground the connector etc. Thanks for trying bigdaddy. jmiller - yes, same here, in the last 30 days its gotten worse.
  12. YooperLady hows your upload speed? I wouldn't think they're controlling your download speeds, its just network traffic slowing things down. I'd be happy wih 64kbs up and down. Another interesting note, if I run thier upload test from thier site, it says 93kbps. The tech yesterday said well looks good, you should be surfing at a good speed. I let him know real quick I KNOW that thier test is terribly inaccurate, I have a speed monitor and I watch it all the time. If I had 93kbps I'd be able to attatch a simple jpeg quicker than the 10 minutes it takes me. Can't even upload to direcway's email server? It's rediculous. How I'd love to be able to send my family pictures via yahoo messanger, but of course that doesn't work. Don't worry about Direcway getting any more money out of me, I'll have ISDN Feb. 11th. (128k up, 128k down) If that doesn't pan out, I'll be on dial up, at least then I can do something as simple as sharing a photo with family living out of state, and save a ton of money doing it.
  13. Glad to know I'm not the only one! Heres my download speeds. :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 1258 Kbps about 1.3 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB) Download Speed is:: 154 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 22 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 6.65 second(s) Seems odd to me I have this great download speed and horrible upload speed. The advanced level tech yesterday had me bypass the proxy to see if that helped... I did it, then chuckled as I told him I doubt a proxy has anything to do with uploading.. He went on to blame my computer, my software etc.. Tightened him up when I told him I had another system with a fresh install I'd be glad to put online just to see.. Thanks for the reply!
  14. Thank You, Microwave. Very cool site here. I've found it very informative, and The Reverand's posts are not only informative, but entertainging as well. I've become a big fan. Howdy Rev!
  15. Sorry for reposting this, I just posted this in response to a direcway question in another category. I thought I might post it here too, in its proper place. Please forgive my newbieness. I've been with DirecWay for over a year now and have never been satisfied. While my download speeds are pretty good ranging from 300k to 700k per sec, its virtualy impossible for me to upload anything at all. Its so slow a simple http request takes anywhere from 5 to 15 seconds depending on the time of day. In the past 48 hours I've spent 8 hours on the phone with tech support and now I'm waiting on a call from a DirecWay engineer. This is my second system on D'way runing XP and i get the same results, so i know my system is not to blame here, not to mention the fact dial up is faster. Here's today's mytest.net upload analysis. And before you ask... No, I'm not under a FAP, I've only been Fapped twice in a year. D'way 4000 Signal strength 82 Software version Connection is:: 6 Kbps about 0 Mbps (tested with 386 KB) Upload Speed is:: 1 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ [www.testmy.net] Bottom Line:: 0 times faster than 56K you can upload 1MB in 1024 second(s) If anyone has any ideas about why this is happening, feel free to post them. I'd enjoy some speed before I change over to ISDN next month. Y'all Take Care.
