  1. I have been having a strange problem with my DW6000 modem regarding speed and the Web Acceleration Status. The acceleration status is inactive, and even though I am browsing HTTP sites, it is making no attempt to connect and bring the status to operational. I have had this happen before, and it required a repoint of my dish to fix, but the last time, my connection didn't work hardly at all when the status was inactive.

For more than a week, every night, like clockwork, from around 8:30pm to 11:00pm, my download speeds drop dramatically. I go from surfing at 700Kbps - 1Mbps, to drowning anywhere below 100Kbps.

Everything they've told me to do has been something I would have don
  5. Does the speed updrade apply to everyone who has DirecWay, or only those that will have the DW7000 modem? Can the DW6000 be traded in for the DW7000? A speed upgrade would be awesome, especially for the upload. This is my first post, and I have been a DirecWay customer for over a year now.
