  1. Please be careful when running this cross pol test. If you fail and can not pass you will not be able to get back on line until you get lucky and pass or an installer has come out to re point your dish. I do not advise running this if you are not exactly sure of the consequences. It is possible to have a cross pole out of Wacke and still be on-line. I had that very issue before changing birds. Although I had never run the cross pole test.
  2. Dell. There is nothing wrong. Everyone will be able to post a reply to your thread. That symbol is just there because it is your thread and you can lock it. Only you or a Mod will be able to do this.
  3. ScCoghill. I do not believe you are doing anything wrong. As Indestructable said it is a option for you to lock your thread. As you can see we are able to respond to you so it is not locked. Just ignore it. You will see it each time you start a thread since it is your thread. If I am wrong on that someone will correct me.
  4. cblguyfl you may want to review this thread. Make sure to follow the steps exactly for TCP Optimizer. It helped my system but some have reported no help. It may be worth a try. There is a link in the thread to download TCP Optimizer. https://testmy.net/topic-1703 There is a upload tweak also here https://testmy.net/forum/index.php?topic=1773.msg17588#msg17588 . Again it seems it effects each persons system differently. As for me instead of using 18000 or 17a00, I use b000. Now this tweak had a big effect on my system. Hope some of this information helps your system. And welcome to the forum.
  5. I followed the tweak that Special_Ed had and had little improvement, until I changed the number from 18000 to b000. I can not explain why this is working for me but my test sure are alot better. :::..

  7. I must agree with jim2006. Your speed looks just fine. Browsing for me is slow tonight as well. Slower that I have seen in recent weeks. Do you have your proxy and port settings correct? It should be port 87. Just a basic setting for the consumer edition.
  8. Hello Phreek. I read your previous post and see that you have the DW6000. Aggr3 is right there are many things that effect your speed. Peak hours of the day will be the worst. 600 is not really bad depending on the time of day you have that speed. Please remember when comparing speeds to others that you have to compare to other with the DW6000 only. There are 4000's and 3000's out there that can be tweaked much more than the DW6000. They will almost always have a higher download speed.
  9. All consumer dish's point to the south southwest. I believe all birds are about 300 - 400 feet from each other. Some are a little higher or lower that other. Do a goggle for Clark Allen Belt.
  10. Hello MainJam and welcome to the forum. http://hns.getdway.com/whats_included.html
  11. Darn it. I just had a email from someone and the pictures were all the darn red x. I am at a lost. What is going on here. Please remember this is on all email accounts. This must be a computer setting. Help. Help. Please. Could this be a result of how they are sending the email since attachments open fine? Just drawing straws here.
  12. Microwave, I am not sure that has fixed the issue yet. I have not received any email from the person that this issue mostly effects. It is weird, it does not happen on any web page, just email. Could this be an issue with the way the person sending me the email is doing it? Attachments seem to always come through ok. I am sorry that I may not have communicated the resolution clearly. No problem. We will just have to test it out. I will post a reply when I am sure wheather that change worked.
  13. Thanks Microwave. That setting WAS checked. I have un-checked it now. What would that have to do with my other accounts though. I was thinking it must be a setting that effected the entire computer. Just a question, I have no idea. That is why I am asking for help.
  14. Well I tried that and I still get that darn red x. This is not just a outlook express issue. It happens with yahoo, hotmail, gmail, and direcway. Are there any computer wide settings that could be effecting this issue.
  15. Can anyone help me please. I am open to any suggestions. I will try anything that may help this issue.
  16. I am getting email with pictures in them and all I see is the dreaded red x. I have shut down my kaspersky and zonealarm and the problem still exist. This issue is only happening in emails not on websites. Any suggestions on what else I could check? This happens on all 3 accounts on this computer. I have attached a screenshot of Internet Explorer Advanced settings screen.

  18. cawski, you may also want to follow the instructions in this thread about TCP OPTIMIZER exactly as they are stated. Good luck. https://testmy.net/forum/index.php?topic=1703.0
  19. To find out what sat. you are pointed to go to this . Post a screenshot of that page. Or what longitude are you on? Click on system info. Galaxy 11 (91
  20. Hello Twinblades and welcome to the forum. Try this link to help your speed. It was a huge boost to my system. https://testmy.net/forum/index.php?topic=1703.msg17106#msg17106
  21. MICROWAVE, I had to delete the entire INTERNET LOGS folder. That is what did it for me.
  22. Problem solved! Thanks for the link VanBuren. I had to clear all files in the Internet Log file located at C:windowsinternet logs. That forces all programs to ask for access again. It is working just fine now.
  23. I apparently do not know where to look in zonealarm. Can someone give me more of step-by-step instructions, please. It does not appear that anything is wrong with my registry since I can get to the site and successfully check for updates with zonealarm disabled. Would you agree, Microwave and VanBuren?
  24. I have done some more test today. I have found out that I can get updates through my account with ZONEALARM PRO turned off. Now the question becomes how to set up zonealarm pro to allow me to access this site. I thought I had already given permission for this to happen. Please see my screenshot. Thanks.
  25. Thanks for all your suggestions Helloimtim and microwave. Since I do have a account that can get updates without any problem I think I will leave well enough alone. My system seems to be running pretty will now. I did check my security settings. All of them were already set to default. There is no yellow bar. I did include a screenshot in my original post. I do not know if there is anything in there that may assist us in resolving this any further. If not I will just get my updates from the other account. If there is anything else I could check let me know. I am going to google for a winsock repair.
