  1. Geez....sometimes I feel like such an idiot!  I didnt even know you could open more than one ie browser window at a time!  I tried it, and thats JUST what I wanted to do...be able to move between pages without losing the previous page.  You gys are the BOMB!  I dont know what I would do if I couldnt come on this board and get help with D-way.  After having used AOL for years, its taking some getting used to....but I wouldnt go back again, especially since I used all the tips here to get my D-way running at a decent speed (no help from D-Way customer support/Pakistanies)

    I just LOVE ya'll!!!!!<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008_ZNxdm79685US' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_3_22.gif' alt='Burning Heart' border=0></a>!!!!!!!!!

  2. No...what I am wanting is my AOL! LOL!

    With AOL, you can open one window after another  (one web page after another) without the ones under it closing out until you close them out.  I want to do the same thing with my explorer!  Lets say I am looking at one page, want to go to another, and then come back to original...I have to type in the web address...look at page...type in new address and LOSE the previous page if I want to go back I have to type it in all over again....

    Thanks for your suggestion though! :)

  3. As an e-aoler, switched to direcway, I HATE the way Internet Explorer works compared to AOL browser.  Maybe I just dont know HOW to work it!  Can anyone tell me how to get the pages to load "separate" from the main page like AOL does? (In other words you could close a page out without closing down the browser.  For instance, with AOL you might have two pages open and working on them at the same time, but with my internet explorer you have to keep hitting the "back" button to move around from page to page.  I would LOVE my new direcway if it werent for having to use the explorer! IS THERE A SOLUTION I JUST DONT KNOW ABOUT?

    Please email me if you know of one!

  5. Ok, I did all the tweaks (THANKS REVEREND!) and my download speeds are staying fairly decent now (notice I said fairly decent....I think any other problems are on Direcway end).  However, my upload speeds still suck.  Anyone know of anything I can do to get some more speed there? I sell on ebay and its hell sitting and waiting for pics to upload!

    Also.....does D-way have any FTP space for storing pics for upload? I am an X-aoler (can we say SIMPLE here?) and I don't know how I am going to upload my pics without AOL's FTP space?????  Where do I put those pics for upload now?

    In case you haven't figured it out, I am a computer idiot learning as I go.......

    Well, that high speed shit didn't last long.........so much for getting all giddy about a high speed.....

  7. Now understand, I ain't complaining here.....but my speeds that usually run between 250-500 (which Direcway tells me are great speeds) are up to over 1000 this morning! What the hell? It would be nice if they would stay there...but that would be too good to be true!

    ...and by the way....2 weeks since promise of call back from Engineering Dept....no call back yet, even after several phone calls.

  8. Can ANYONE help me out here? I had Direcway6000 installed 14 days ago.  Since install, I have had NOTHING but problems!  I paid nearly 700.00 for something that runs SLOWER than my AOL dial-up at 26k and I can't get Direcway to do anything but make excuses!  Now I know why people go postal! 

    I have spent HOURS on the phone talking to foreigners who don't understand me, nor do I understand them. .. one of them actually got a little testy with me when I had to keep asking him to repeat himself because I couldn't figure out what the hell he was trying to say!    What nerve!!  Had I known that I was buying into a company who ships their workload overseas to a bunch of half-english speaking jackasses I KNOW I would have NEVER even considered purchasing this piece of junk!   

    Anyway.....they FINALLY they put me through to advanced support and after several phone calls with them, they said they would have ENGINEERING contact me.  Well, thats been 5 days ago and STILL no call from them.

    I would like to take this Direcway and stick it "where the sun don't shine" up any Direcway Exec's behind I could!  I have NEVER been so disappointed in my life!

    I did many of the things listed here on the forum and its  STILL no better, if anything its running slower depending on the time of day.

    Does ANYONE have any suggestions???? Please email me at [email protected]  I feel like I might as well have taken that $700.00 I spent on this piece of junk and wiped my behind on it!  :angry5:

    And to anyone thinking of purchasing Direcway for home or business...RUN...as fast as you can in the other direction!! I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy!!!!!! :icon_pale:
