  1. There are problems if you upload via FTP. I've also had problems uploading to iDisk.
  2. I agree with that in principle. But when the "system" is operating properly both small and large tests give similar results, browsing and email are snappy. When there are problems at the Gateway the discrepancy between small and large tests become apparent and obvious in painful browsing and email errors. As for dfrag it is an non issue. With GHz CPUs and journaled HDs it is like farting in the wind.
  3. It might be more accurate but does not reflect reality. For browsing and email with typical attachments the smaller tests give "real life" results. If my typical work involves U/Ding several MB at a clip I can see using large files to test. The question here is not whether a Ferrari is faster than a Vespa but rather which can get across town in rush hour faster.
  4. The page will open if you use the WB proxy. It does not appear to be a godaddy site. A "Who is" query for fromthebarrio.com at http://www.gkg.net/whois/ returns: Note that the servers are secureserver.net which are probably blocking WB IPs unless you use the AT&T proxy
  5. Welcome to the forum... If you use the proxy it will connect. I normally do not use the WB proxy and at first your site did not load. I turned the proxy on and connected to the site in ten seconds, took a little longer to complete. I use a Mac and Safari browser so I am not the one to advise on how to turn the proxy on for XP. May be a Windoze user will chime in. Good luck

  7. There are at least three "flavors" of WildBlue. Which one do you have? Run a speed test and post results here.

  10. They know if you are using a router, its IP and what make it is. From the Current Modem Status portal: CPE MAC CPE IP Manufacturer xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx 75.105.xxx.xxx Belkin Corporation
  11. I am on WildBlue Satellite connected with Belkin Wireless-G router F5D7230-4 and have no problems. There are several versions of this router. I have heard that version 7 does not play well with WildBlue. BTW Belkin routers have by default IP
  12. From what I've heard, "high pings time" is a new feature.
  13. I must agree with almost everything you said. I'll add that secure connections, both browser and email have gone to the toilet. While the FCC route you describe may have some merit it is a very protracted process. All of us that use Satellite internet, regardless of provider, have one thing in common: we live in the boonies. Small communities. We can turn this handicap to our advantage. Word of mouth in my county is faster than WildBlue. Since I know personally by name more than half of the inhabitants in this county they ALL know how well (or badly) WildBlue is performing. I have been

  15. Thanks Bird Fan. Yes this is what they say. Sorry tommie gorman, my bad I misunderstood.

  17. Thanks for the welcome! I've been lurking on this board for some time; been with WildBlue for over a year. First few months were wonderful, even able to use Skype since there are no land lines anywhere near here and no cell towers either. Pings used to average in the low 600 range with no drops. Now: Start: 12/21/06 10:35:15 PM PING from: to: ( Every 10 mSecs PKT# RESULT TIME(ms) LENGTH Min Avg Max Timestamp 1 success 2372 40 2372 2372 2372 12/21/06 10:35:18 PM 2 success 1164 40 1
  18. Since 11/17/06 the latency (ping time) has more than doubled on WildBlue thereby making "Satellite Broadband" an oxymoron!
