  1. fikester, Thanks, thought that was the way it was, but wanted to make sure.
  2. You will have to unplug the DW7000 from the router, and hook your router directly to your computer, then go to its setup page and follow these instructions, Disable the built in DHCP server. Set its LAN IP address to Set its LAN Subnet Mask to Set its LAN Default Gateway to Note: Not all routers will have these settings. If yours does not you should consider purchasing either a hard wired hub or a wireless access point. Also you may loose connectivity to your router after making these changes. If at any point you want to re
  3. Crispy Niggets, 91 signal strength is great, however--and I don't want to confuse you more--what is your cross-pol #? Type or click in your address bar, then click antenna pointing, click next (without selecting anything) make sure "Perform ACP" is checked, then click next, and now you can choose Auto or Manual, the difference is Auto test and gives you a number, manual, runs the test constant and will give you a reading of what your cross-pol number is real time, kinda like signal strength will, it will go up and down as you watch it. I'd r
  4. Decade, Just wondering if you ever got charged anything additional after upgrading to Pro? Besides the obvious $10, thinking about doing it, I mean, what's $10 after paying as much as I am. Speeds are doing ok for me, but I'd like to have some more speed. Do you, now that you've upgraded to Pro, think it is worth $10? Or would I just be wasting my time. Thanks,

  6. Mine was a Apple IIc (no hard drive, used 5 1/4" disk). That and a 286, with 12Mhz turbo mode :D. Boy the old days. How long they've been.
  7. You could put some guide wires up on three or four corners of the pole. Why did the installer use lumber? Metal pole is the best, because wood is more likely to warp over time and of course throw your dish off. If that 4x6 is 12' long, and it is in the ground 3', that means you've got 9' feet above ground, with that big dish, it is going to move. The bottom of the dish has to be at least 6' above ground, so therefore you could shorten your pole by about 3', which could make it a little better. Other than that, I'd get a 7 1/2' x 2 3/8" pipe bury it 2' and use concrete and if you have to
  8. Jim, Well, thats good news , I was hoping that $400 wasn't just for the Dish.
  9. Here, https://testmy.net/personal_stats_30d.php?user_name=tonyp56&m=12&d=30&Y=2005 That is my stats since 12-12. I test several times a day, early morning, night, evening, afternoons, etc... I probably test at least 5 times a day, both upload and download. Anyways, I get what you are saying and I won't disagree with you, I'm just saying overall, when everything is said and done, I'm happy with what I got, could it be better, YES of course, but it could also be much, much worse.
  10. Decade, Yeah, I've read some of your post where you were having problems, so I know what you are saying. When I first got my stuff installed the installer had everything working, and everything seemed fine. He left, and then all of a sudden, the system light went off. I did what you did, called, talked to some Indian woman, then after about 45 minutes she transfered me to level 2 (American, or at least American sounding) tech support. The guy went through some stuff but nothing happened. Then right before I got of the phone with him the system light came on, and I started surfing a
  11. Stillwater area, kinda north central of the state. How much was the 1.2 dish, did you have them upgrade you or did you do it? Yeah, I dont' get that one, you had lower signal strength but higher cross-pole. I don't know why my signal is so low in the first place (I know, not really low, but still it just seems it should be higher), cuz there is nothing--no trees, buildings, hills, etc. between my dish and the satellite.
  12. Ok, I've had Direcway for 22 days now, and I've got to say I am fairly happy with it. To begin, and for me at least they've really fixed the upload speeds so that they stay very close to where they are supposed to be (128Kbps for me) instead of dropping like a rock down to 18Kbps like it did when I first got my system installed. OK, for the stats, the fastest I was running on dial up was 40Kbps download, and 25Kbps upload (used dial up connection, came here and tested the speeds, fastest I ever could connect was 46.6 and that was the speed I was connected with when I tested) So I did the
  13. well my uploads are great, however, my DL's are, well sucking right now . Last test I ran it test at 100Kbps, however, my uploads haven't went below 100Kbps since the update, I'm happy with it. Wish Downloads would stay more constant though
