  1. :DWhen I first got my Direcway DW6000 I was trippin on here everyday askin questions cuz it was almost as slow as 56k but now its good u all..Give it time after you first get it bout a week then you should be 20%+ faster then the avg satellite provider so just to let u kno sometimes it goes slow but never more then 10 minutes for me and always downloads at an impressive rate basically not better then cable or DSL but if you had a 56k like me this is like heaven so those who are not sure and are kinda iffy if your new to it just give it a little time and u should be good ok! Good luck D-bricks DW6000 user

(dDisregard comment above^^^) Sorry few more questions I found out about the 169MB limit a day... 1.Does anybody know of a seprate program that counts the amount of data u have downloaded in a specfic amount of a time besides that p2p program that can make sure I dont go over that limt? 2.
