  1. I've learned some things in the last 2 days. Suddenly 3 days ago signal strength would drop from 72 to 15. Adjustments to dish did no good. Called DWay, the manual params for satellite had me on G11 1350 frequency, couldn't keep a signal. DWay said they needed to send out installer because it was dish pointing issue. I refused to believe that so did not accept an appointment for technician. Went into setup and picked G11 1070 freq, voila, sig strength 63, exited and it worked overnight but this morning, sig strength 15 again. Checked setup and I'm back on 1350 frequency. Adjustment
  2. FWIW, I ended up reloading the DWay software after uninstalling and re-installing the USB controllers on my system. Speeds are more consistent in the 600-700 Kbps range. Previously, there were very long delays in transmits. I was able to determine using the dway diagnostics that USB was not transmitting all the packets to the tcp/ip layer. Pathping always showed 50%+ packet loss pinging the first hop/router in the dway network. Enuf time spent on this one for sure.
  3. I have a problem I started noticing about a week ago. Web pages start to load and ie explorer says 'done' on bottom left but page is blank. I hit the 'X' buttom to stop and most of the page displays. I then went to TMN and did a download speed test. Just as another user described in another post, the download is choppy. The smartest goes right thru the smallest download and then proceeds to the next one. This next one is choppy. I'm not used to that. Used to be able to use the largest size and it cranked right thru with little pausing and I got speeds of around 1000 to 1200 Kbps. Now I o
  4. Brandon, I run dw4000 and use Cisco software vpn client on my laptop and have no problems as long as the MTU is set at 1300. I'd really like to know if you get this resolved because I'm considering upgrading from the 4000 to the 7000 and need my sw vpn to continue working. Can you have your client/customer set the MTU to 1300 and then 1200 and see if that works and let us know. It's not uncommon to have to drop the MTU for vpn to work, I've been around this block with vpn a lot. When I was running 1500 MTU on the client, I could connect to the VPN concentrator but Outlook and other
  5. Ok, so one upload at 46, the next at 16. We'll see how it runs on average. Download at 1275. I'm satisfied, at least things are working again. Thanks for the replies to this post, hopefully my lessons learned will help someone else. Incidentally, this is with DW4000 USB modems. I have the dish transmitter grounded and removing the ground wire made no difference in the receive strength. Later
  6. OK, update. I'm back online transmitting. Adjusting the side to side setting did the trick but I applied a trick. So for those like me without the fancy meter you can plug in outside at the dish to get your numbers: 1. After you think you have the side to side and up/down set as good as you can get it. Boy that side to side setting sucks big time!!, use 2 way radios and have someone sitting at the computer watching while running the manual test. Don't go to ACP yet. 2. Push out on one side of the dish from the back and see if moving the dish slightly to one side pushes up the receiv
  7. I thought I would maybe get better upload by checking and adjusting my cross-pol settings. I am not able to pass the test. I have tweaked the dish every which way, all 3 directions and I cannot get a cross-pol signal over 61, therefore, the test doesn't pass. The maximum signal strength I can get prior to the ACP test is 62, then when the ACP test starts, I can barely get it to read 61. Seems that if I can't get my receive signal in the 70';s, there is no hope. I checked the cables, which are about 60 feet long and they are not shorted. Resistance is 4 ohms when shorting one end out.
  8. I'm using the DW 4000 with Cisco VPN 4.05d. It works, as stated earlier. When you try vpn, make sure to try different mtu settings, lower then normal. My cisco vpn connection will set the mtu to 1300.
  9. Do a search on the web for " https blocked" or " https won't display". There are some good pages to read about this problem. I don't think it is dway but could be wrong. I just finished going thru troubleshooting this problem because I connected my friends laptop to my network and could not ever successfully run windows update to put service pack 2 on his machine. I use ICS and DW4000 modems. This was strange because I have done this before with his computer and never had problems. I haven't done it since I updated this machine to SP2 though. Anyhow, I spent at least 12 or 14 full hours o
  10. I recognized this last night. Figured out the problem. I use McAfee firewall and when watching inbound events, there were many attempts at port 1030 udp from a347dnsxx.direcpc.com. Where xx = numerals. No doubt this is the cause of the problem for me. I have been noticing events for a long time on port 1026 w/udp for a347dnsxx.direcpc.com. The ip's of these machiness are and up, there are about 8 of them that keep trying to send udp packets. Notice these machines have the name dns in them and they are also on the same subnet as the dns server configured on the dway modem. DNS u
  11. I use the same VPN client. Set your MTU to 1300. Check your device manager under Network adapters and make sure you are using the deterministic network enhancer, ie, make sure it is enabled for your lan card that is connected to the dw6000. Before you change the mtu, do this: 1. The following ping command will tell you what the mtu should be set to: ping -f -l 1432 <ip address for your vpn concentrator you connect to> If the ping works without seeing a message about the packet needing fragmented, then add 28 to the 1432 above and this means your mtu should be set to
  12. Those versions you have are only the downloaded update packages. I have both on my computer also. It doesn't matter if you leave them there, but to be safe, just delete the _005 version. When you right click the blue DW icon, select about and then system information, under service pack you should see 'Service Pack C1' if you upgraded to the P15 version.
  13. Van, I''m running the DW4000. I used cablenut and loaded your latest SP2 vanburen.test.ccs file and it worked real good. :::..
