  1. After I read more I guess its cause the other tweaks could mess up my LAN settings which in my case my internet relies on. If I am wrong and someone else knows better PLEASE let me know
  2. This might explain why I cant really tweak anything. http://www.dslreports.com/faq/8500
  3. Yeah I saw that site and read that as well.
  4. Thats the HWY. We are on 212 as you come out the NE entrance of Yellowstone. Then 212 goes up in the Beartooths and over Beartooth Pass. It drops down the other side to Red Lodge, MT. Granite peak, the highest peak in MT is in the Beartooths. 212 is a very windy twisty road, named one of the most scenic in the country.
  5. dn0 I have noticed that on this board there are a few guys who had snowmobile avatars. I am in Cooke City, Montana. The snotel site got up to 32.4" last night and that is generally and indication that higher up in the riding area could be double that easy in places. We (Cooke City) are a favorite destination for snowmobiling generally ranked in the top 3 in the nation every year.

  7. Well its still Satellite no matter what so for pings there are barriers that dont seem to be broken. BUT here are some results. I have done many other websites and they all come back similar. These results seem very good compared to other satellite users results. network182-40:~ Robert$ ping yahoo.com PING yahoo.com ( 56 data bytes 64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=52 time=638.717 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=52 time=644.156 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=52 time=650.712 ms 64 bytes from icmp_
  8. I went with www.skyvistasat.com. They definitely seem to be a newer up and coming, but after talking with many of the different companies, I felt good about going with these guys. I really havent found many other users on the forums out there yet at this point. The setup is a 1.2m dish w/ 4 watt transmitter, although you can get the more affordable 2 watt setup. I got the 4 watt setup so that I could go with as big or little plan as I wanted in the future, upgrade or downgrade my plan according to seasons for my business. It also uses a Surfbeam modem which is a cable modem setup.
  9. Its a bit more than Dway contracts, although there are many plans for lower speeds which dont cost more or much more than the Dway plans. The most important thing, in my mind is that I actually get close to or at the advertised speeds no matter what time of day. For instance 1.5 down .128 up is $109, 1 down .128 up is $89, .5 down .128 up is $69. I realize Dway advertises higher rates than those for similar prices but do you get them every time you log on?
  10. 3 down .384 up which these tests were right around and above on some on the "TRUspeed" results, whatever that means.
  11. I just got a new sat connection for my business. I live in a very remote area and sat was my only option. So far I am very pleased with the results. I get these results any time of day. :::..
