  2. Have you checked your XPOL values, forced ranging, etc... Since my initial problems with the 7000 right after I got it, I have no complaints, even in the evening. It took about 3-4 weeks before it got sorted out. My upload speeds are very consistent. Very rarely lower than the 180K range. I do have a higher level of failed transmissions with the 7000. I cleared my statistics this AM, then ran this test. :::..

  3. The whole WildBlue thing is getting old. Dway has its problems, and I give credit to WildBlue for shutting down new installations when they were out of capacity (allegedly), but the fact is that a hell of a lot of us don't have the option. WildBlue doesn't offer service where I live. I checked before I upgraded to the 7000 and they still don't. I had issues with the 7000 at first with evening speeds, but that is now gone. The moves are positive for us who are either happy at some level or have no choice (I am both). More capacity on e-mail and a decent portal are one step. Hopefully those
  4. I was surprised to see no comments or posts about all the changes with the move from the Direcway brand to HughesNet. I have been playing with the stuff for a couple hours, doing all the e-mail changes, etc. Comments? So far, I think it is a move in the right direction. At least there is a decent portal instead of the crap they used to have. Webmail has A LOT of "file not found" errors where you have to refresh over and over. Other than that, I am fairly pleased. Don't even mind moving mail. I didn't use it much, and now I can have an excuse to get rid of some spam.

  14. While you are correct that those are the settings, the cached data is not on the modem, it is on a proxy server at the NOC or somewhere. It simply splits the traffic onto the other TCP port at the gateway, which is the modem. To the best of my knowledge, the only thing that is cached on the modem is DNS lookups. (which would, in fact, give the appearance of increased browsing speed too, because of the latency involved with the system)
  15. The DW7000 isn't actually acting as the proxy server. The proxy setting simply tells the browser to send HTTP traffic on port 87 once it gets to the gateway. This simply allows the computer to access cached information to give the impression of more speed. This is a common thing to use. My work uses one. HTTP traffic travels on port 80 if you don't have it enabled, and you get the pages directly, and if you have it enabled, the traffic comes on the specified port (in this case 87) from the caching proxy server, wherever that is. On our network at work, the proxy is on port 8080. Comes in VERY

  17. IA8 is a hell of a lot better than SatMex5 that I was on. I have only had two slow evenings since I moved and the slowdown time is shorter than before. It would be nice if there were none, but I don't see that happening.
  18. You have me beat tonight! Browsing still seems acceptable though... Very Bursty during this one... Jumping 5-6% at a time, then pausing. Probably why browsing seems OK. :::..

  19. That value (both of them) will clear out if you do a "Clear Statistics" on the advanced page and I believe if you power-cycle the modem. Mine says 0 in both locations too. If you go the the advanced page and just want a quick reference, click set up. then antenna pointing, then do an automatic test. It will just look once in a pass/fail mode. For a running display, you need to use the manual version of that on the same page. If you run either test, I think those values will re-populate. I would check for you, but it is crappy weather here today, and I never do XPOL or force rang
  20. I re-massaged the dish this weekend in very clear weather... IA8 1330 MHz RSL: 82 XPOL: 86 I tried and tried and tried to get above 82. I got 83 once for a fleeting moment, but couldn't get it again. I have found that tiny adjustments are difficult becase the installers crank the bolts down so hard (so the dish doesn't move) that it flattens everything out just a touch and you end up back where you were when you re-tighten. XPOL is easier because there really isn't anything to flatten out there.
  21. Close to what I perceive to be the "cap" As for the 6000, I also had ever tweak the Rev had out, and I think I got 1001 Mbps once. Usually 998 or 997. Before the tweaks I was only in the 960's. I believe I read somewhere that WinXP is pretty well tweaked anyway as far as TCP/IP goes. The browser is more important, and that really only affects what you see as browsing speeds... but I could be wrong. :::..

  24. I had your exact same problem, as others here in this thread have also had... You have to be UNMERCIFUL (but nice) with support. You MUST call at least every other day and e-mail every day. It took me 8 days to get them to commit to a repoint. I was on SatMex 5 and now am on IA8. Make sure you keep EVERY ticket/problem number they give you and reference them when you call back. If you don't, they will want to start over every time. I finally got the committment to repoint during a phone call that occurred after an e-mail threatening the BBB and FCC.
  25. Are the trees and the dish on the same level, ground wise? If so, how far from the dish to the trees? I suspect that elevation would get you into the treetops and then maybe a small hole would do you fine. When I tweaked my dish, it reminded me how delicate the adjustments are. I moved my dish polarization less than a degree to gain 20 points in cross pol. Only a couple millimeters means all the difference in signal strenght. Wouldn't take much of a hole in the tree to get the signal through.
