  1. A 7000 model? Hughes got people with the 6000, probably another ploy to increase the heartache of long-suffering dway users. When you don't think they can go any lower, they offer something even worse. I thank god I still have the 4000 and I'll be saying goodbye to dway if it ever breaks down.
  2. Leaving DSL for Dway,,,may I be the first to say I'm sorry for your loss... Welcome to the world of Dway. On the other hand if you can get the dish activated (and I do wish you the best of luck with that) it could be worse,,,,whatever you do, don't downgrade to the upgrades offered by hughes. I'm happy with my DW400 and thank the heavens above I didn't immediately go for the slick marketing of the DW600. As far as the other questions, whenever you network with satellite, the connection will be slowed. If you go to broadband reports, they have a whole faq on networking with direcway.

  4. LMAO,,,Even their speedtests sucks. Oh, how I wish, I wish this were true.
  5. Has anyone ever had their Dway connection disappear? Today my connection just went bye-bye. No warning, no new software installation, just browsing and poof! I had to reinstall the software and couldn't even get connected for web registration. After the comp rebooted it detected the usb satellite connection, but still wouldn't connect for web registration until I went in and manually put in the address. After I did that I finally got connected but was only running at about 200 Kbps. Did a regedit and found 4 usb satellite connections, 2 of which were dway and I only installed the software twice today since reformatting my HD a few months ago. I deleted the other three connections and put the tweaks back in Had to tweak the registry manually too, to get back up to speed but finally got it up and running decently again.

  6. I guess that it's a trade-off, if you want good speed from dway I'd uninstall aol and use explorer or another browser. AOL bogs down a system incredibly.
  7. Yeah, alot more money, and if you get FAP'ed it's worse than dial-up, not to mention losing service completely at times during a thunderstotm and just whenever dway is feeling a bit cantankerous. How I wish, I wish I had other options, my dial-up speed was only half of the modem speed.

  11. I've been using firefox for about a year with those tweaks. Couldn't be happier with them..
  12. sorry, there is no way to remove it. You just have to wait it out and never ever go over the limit again. It's a pain, but still better than dial-up.
  13. You got FAP'ed? After about 140 Mb you get speeds excruciatingly slow, worse that dial-up
