  1. I had Hughes.net for three years. When Centurytel finally made it's way to my house with DSL I signed up the same night I recieved my email that it was available. I have never looked back. I love it and have not had any problems since with my speed. I can only get 1.5 down and 275 up but it beats the hell out of Hughes.net!!

  2. I had the same problem. If you go to Windows Up Date Help it will tell you what to put in your proxy exceptions box so it will work. I have had no problem with up date since I did that. If you look to the upper right hand corner of the screen it has a search box. Just copy and paste the error number in it and hit search. It will take you to all of the info you need. In your case the error number is 0x80244023.


  3. Reverend,

    Thanks for the advise on the tweaks. Here id the first test after I applied them. I just hope these speeds will remain into the week during peak times. Will have to wait and see.

  4. FYI

    Sent an email to Direcway Support regarding speeds. Got a nice email with several things to try and four sites to test download speeds. My speed has been great since the email. I did nothing to tweak system etc. Running a DW6000, Windows XP. I just hope it stays this way. I enjoy the posts and the site very much.
