  1. I have been plagued with variable download speeds lately. I keep thinking that it might be my hardware or software, but an hour later it is fine. Has anyone else been experiencing this lately? speeds vary from 71 to 723 in a period of hours. My signal strength has also dipped below 30 briefly while this is happening. Last night it was at 71 - I figured that maybe I have an alignment problem, but then this am, it is back up to 600s. Is it me or the Direcway system (satellite side). Is there any way to confirm where the issue is - me or them? thanks

    My speed

    HELP, please.... I have a DW6000, that for the most part works 'ok'. I need to reboot the modem every week or so (normal?), and for normal surffing etc it is much faster than my old dial-up method at 33.6 max. HOWEVER.... I sign onto a webcast of a lecture once a month, and it likes to hang. There are 3 lectures. One at 4:30 Sat PM, one at 7:30 Sat PM, and One at 8:30 Sun Am. I have noticed that the Sat connections are much more prone to stals & drops than the Sun one is, and that the Sat Evening (7pm) one drops more than the Sat afternoon(4pm) one. Is this my connection speed or the uplink speed. The highest quality it appears to send is about 150kbps, which come through great, when it drops to 34, it pixalates and video stalls, but audio continues - below that and it drops altogether. Shouldn't Direcway be able to handle this? I've been told by Tech Support that it is because the Internet iteslf is to busy Sat PM - is that True? 512 WiFi just became available - is it more reliable? I also see that others are getting 36x normal, I'm only at 13x - Are they @ commercial $$ level, or should i complain? Sunday Am stats are: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 726 Kbps about 0.7 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB) Download Speed is:: 89 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 13 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 11.51 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=7XPVVRG87
