  1. Thanks, that seems to have done the trick!!
  2. Hmmm. Well, maybe the problem only exists with yarnharlot, then. But still!
  3. Hi all, The oddest thing has started happening to me recently... Direcway's DNS servers seem to have lost some of my favorite sites. I can't visit them, and pinging them just results in a "server not found" error. It's like they've disappeared. Except that on other computers (not Direcway-connected ones), everything is fine. I get RSS feeds from them, and there are new posts on a regular basis. I just can't see the actual site. The two sites are www.yarnharlot.ca, and www.oldshawfarm.com . Has anyone else ever experienced anything similar with Direcway? My DNS server is Thanks for any advice -- Eileen
  4. 99% sure... (not like they'd tell me if I asked). I haven't downloaded anything substantial in weeks -- just smaller things like PDFs, and not even very many of those. Early early this morning my speeds were up to 45k (woohoo), but now I am back at 7k. Sigh.
  5. This is actually quite a clean machine -- there's not much installed on it by way of programs, there are no 'always on' internet widgets (weatherbug, etc), and all of the normal cleanup tasks (virus, defrag, and so on) get done weekly. The modem is turned off every night. This time of year -- thunderstorm season -- the whole shebang ends up completely unplugged at least once a day anyway.
  6. Hi everyone, Recently I have become totally fed up with my DW 4000. (OK, I've been fed up since about the 3rd day I had it, but only now am I going to do something about it.) My speed test is below -- it's showing speeds of around 2kB/s. It is seriously killing me. I run a web company out of my house, and I would give my left pinky toe to have speeds that did not just absolutely suck. I'm not asking for blazing DSL speeds or anything. Just, you know, at least as good as a 56k modem. I've tried both Cablenut (with VanBuren's settings) and DrTCP (with these settings: http://www.dslreports.com/faq/2019), but neither seemed to do anything. I don't know what else to try, so if anyone could point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated. Oh, for what it's worth: the modem is connected to an XP computer, which serves as the gateway for my Ubuntu box. The speeds are equally bad on both computers, though at least the Windows computer can handle downloads -- the Linux box generally stalls with any file over about 100k. My signal strength hovers around 94%, and my satellite information says "99 degrees W, 1250 MHz". Thanks Eileen :::..
