  2. Was running speed test and thanks for the reply. Jim
  3. I keep getting this today for the first time: Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/tmn/public_html/tools/test/results.php on line 350 Could not connect: Is it my Norton Antivirus blocking communication or ????????? Help if you can Jim
  4. I was thinking of switching to Wild Blue since I am moving from Tennessee to Alabama but so far.....the only advantage I see over my Direcway is the upload speeds. The basic package is only 49.95 now with free install (still got the 300 equip price tag). I pay 59.99 for D'way and by the looks of things to get faster downs with W B than I get with my d'way is to step up to the pro pack. That being 79.99 or twenty smackers more a month. I realize the uploads are a hell of a lot faster with ANY WB plan but the twenty bucks for the same down speeds isn't making much sense. Can you guys (and gals if applicable) help sell me on the switch? I HAVE had my problems with d'way but am not sure if WB is any better yet. Just looking for input and thanks in advance.
  5. well here's mine and I know it's later but a bit worse than I usually (100to 120KB/s) get too. I just wish.....they could be a bit more consistent and really cared about us private/home users as much as they do their business accounts. :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 706 Kbps about 0.7 Mbps (tested with 1013 KB) Download Speed is:: 86 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Test Time:: Tue Feb 15 20:21:35 EST 2005 Bottom Line:: 13X faster than 56K 1MB download in 11.91 sec Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 84.75 % of your hosts average (direcpc.com) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/id-Y2NAFGQVR
  6. I agree this is a good program and it found stuff my spyhunter didn't (including spyhunters own backup files) that it got rid of. There were like nine on the first scan that the spyhunter didn't pick up.........anyway.....looks good and as for the validation....I think it's okay cause like all of us here WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU PIRATE AND RUN WINDOWS ANYTHING???????????? If there is something better that you bought then keep it. Is silly and maybe they are surveying to see but they DO give you the option of skipping the validation (for now). It did do a few irreversible things to my puter but it is my own bone head fault for not clicking the "create system resore point" box before deleting the stuff from the quarantine part. Silly me........( okay DOPE ARE YOU NUTS)
  7. 49 and the big 50 in August 2005 I will always be twenty four in my mind. That's cause I had three years over twenty one and learned a POOP load of stuff in that time. I just don't feel the age. Sitting on the puter is a daily way of life for me and just good to know it's not all teenagers wanting something to do. HI TO ALL OVER 30!
  8. and todays speed IS>>>>>>>>>>> Your connection rating is: [Test Home | Re-Test] Compare to your ISP or other providers Your connection is: 1651 Kbps (about 1.7 Mbps) You downloaded at: 202 KB/s Your TRuSPEED
  9. My signal has improved back to semi normal;) the last couple of days. These guys have problems and they never ever let you or their India indians who answer the tech help call know so they can be intelligent when you call. I was running about 89 to 125 after 1100 to 1500 most of the time. Called em and got chit and finally it's back to semi normal today.........sooooooooooooooo they had probs again they weren't spilling the beans on. Try again
  10. TCP Optimezer that is.........really didn't change anything just hit the optimal setting thing and it went to the 1500 like you said it would. tried to do a restore to return but not sure that reset what I did. I AM REALLY STARTING TO HATE MY DIRECWAY .
  11. alright went to the tcp thing and now i'm worse than ever what the hell did i do wrong???????????????????
  12. okay......so I e-mail direcway support and they tell me signal strength has nothing to do with speed as long as I'm above 31 I"m hooked up and as long as its over 50 my browsing speed shouldn't change. SOOOOOOOOOOO why did my speed drop from the low 900's to 1200 at most times to the present what you see here. Last night I was barely better than 50 or sixty (sial up speed) At least tonight it's back over 500. Of course you get the usual form letter of "As I understand your problem...." blah blah blah. And don't bother threatening them with cable of DSL or any other service you have access to. Seems that goes right over their heads and they never ever even mention "please please stay witrh us we love your 60 dollars a month and will jump through our ass to save your business. Here in TN all of the new lottery outlets have direcway as their means of communication and I guess they don't need us in the private sector pee-on club. Guess this time if it doesn't get any better I will switch to the DSL service like I have at work. Upload is a lot faster and I think that helps the response time for download and makes it seem faster than my Dway. :::..

  13. I may just have to do that I guess....Here goes another couple of hundred for the pre-school graduate techs here in tennessee
  14. Again wish I knew which rod adjusted what and what you are tweaking first second and third but.....for the upfront, and then the hidden you get hit with later......I KNOW!!!! That's why I am skeptical about getting the 6000. Loooks good when they want ya but........is that all it's really gonna cost me later.
  15. I wish I knew how to tweak the dish myself. It's like the last time the weenie service guys (note that is plural they sent two) acted like jerks to my wife and like I had done something wrong. I know I should have the pole but my wife DIDN'T want it in the yard. My directv dish is on the roof and never a problem. Oh well.........gotta do something
  16. I've got 4000 and my speeds used to be anywhere from 1070 to up to 1700 sometimes. Now that it has turned cold looks like my dish needs a re-aim AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! Second year in a row (okay so maybe I should have let them put up the damned pole in the yard instead of insisting on the roof mount) usually have "status" strength of 88 to 92 with clear weather (which they tell me I should where I am and it's great) but for the last two weeks even on a beautiful clear winter night with no clouds (like now) getting 72. Sad. The upload speed as it always has stinks.......most times not any better than a good dial up speed. Oh well....maybe now the locals have DSL it's time to switch. Got it at work and I guess cause of the much bettter upload speed seems faster than even the super speeds I get downloading (most of the time) on direcway.......
  17. The test is running... This test may take 1-2 minutes to complete. For accurate results, please avoid all Internet activity until the test is finished. .. ** Speed: 604(down)/205(up) kbps ** (At least 18 times faster than a 33 kbps modem) Finish. This is what direcway tells me I am getting. Why so much different from here that tells me about 1300 down and about 33 up. Think Direcway is just trying to woo people who have friends on DSL to sign up?????

Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 1022 Kbps about 1 Mbps (tested with 1013 KB) Download Speed is:: 125 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 18 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 8.19 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=RMKGB0YQH I just don't get your download speeds unless you have a piss poor installation. My only bitch is the upload speed. NOT EVEN ANY BETTER THAN DIAL UP AND MOST OF THE TIME WORSE
