  1. I can't answer your questions about the DW4200 because I have no experience with it. I had the DW4000 system for about 5 years and had some bad service, and some really good service with it. The last couple of months before I upgraded, my speeds were very low. I did some research to find that the popular opinion is that Hughes is doing a lot of load balancing, and in turn caused the load on the bird and transponder I was on to be very high. I also feel it's only a matter of time before Hughes phases out the service for DW3000 &4000 customers. (I actually got this from a Tier4 tech support guy). As far as tweaks, I used DRTCP, which you can download from http://www.dslreports.com/drtcp Antother good forum to go to learn about Hughesnet Satellite is http:/www.dslreports.com/forum/sat They have a world of info about all the systems Hughes has. They have a section called Satellite FAQ - Tweaks and Tips that is very helpful. http://www.dslreports.com/faq/satellite Hope this helps.
  2. I had a DW4000 system for several years. I can tell you that you can't use the Linux server to receive internet from your modem. The software is written only for Windows. You can use a Windows machine to receive your connection, then put a switch in line to go to your Linux server, but that would be defeating your purpose. Your best bet would be to upgrade to the HN7000s, it has a self hosted modem, that you can hook directly to your Linux server and manage your network.
  3. This speed test should be better for the time frame. I have the Pro+ :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 1069 Kbps about 1.07 Mbps (tested with 1013 kB) Download Speed is:: 130 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 170 Kbps about 0.2 Mbps (tested with 386 kB) Upload Speed is:: 21 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1) Test Time:: 2006/12/28 - 3:47am D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-SA04EOYTM U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-6NLKIW92Y User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061204 Firefox/ [!]
  4. Bird Fan, will any of the cable nut files help me with my HN7000s system? by the way, Ive been looking for that file you uploaded, and I havent seen it yet
  5. Thanks, Bird Fan. I just d/led SatSpeed2.3. I had tried it before but it was when it first came out. At that time, it didn't seem to work as well as just using DRTCP. But that was with my 4000 system. Form what I see, all I can use on SatSpeed is the MaxConnections setting for the 7000s. Unless theres something else I missed. This is my last speed test ... I appreciate your help. I'm new to the 7000s
  6. Bird Fan, I have a HN7000s on the pro+ plan. What kind of tweaks are you using?
