  1. I live in Northern VA. The 5/2 service is 41.99 less a bundled discount, the exact discount I'm not sure at the moment. For the 15/2, I was paying 56.99 - 13.78, which is about 43. So overall, I guess your pricing is about 8 less. Where do you live? However, the 15/2 was just not worth it for me since at peak times, I was getting about 500 - 1000 Kbps and was having problems connecting via VPN into my office. I think they have too many users here in No. VA.
  2. Thanks! I had the 15/2 for over a year and everything was fine until recently (3-4 weeks) when these problems persisted. Cox never could resolve it, and I got fed up with it. The 5/2 service costs $41.99 but I get a bundled savings discount (not quite sure what that is). The price for 15/2 was $56.99 less a bundled savings of $13.78.
  3. Here are my dual test results: :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 5414 Kbps about 5.41 Mbps (tested with 5983 kB) Download Speed is:: 661 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 1848 Kbps about 1.8 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Upload Speed is:: 226 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1) Test Time:: 2006/12/03 - 9:20am D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-Q3D65LFBK U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-4ITPKMYLU User Agent:: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727) [!] I was having all sorts of problems recently with the 15/2 service (greatly fluctuating speeds with DL approaching dialup speeds at peak hours), so I downgraded yesterday to 5/2, and the 5/2 seems much more stable. I've been monitoring like a hawk and it seems I'm getting the promised 5 down, 2 up.

  5. I believe IE7 has a box that you can check to clear out temp files as the browser closes in Internet Options/Advanced tab. Also, I believe earthlink offers a free toolbar that can do this (but I may be wrong on this).

  7. When I had Direcway, I used a D-LINK DI-514 with the modem connected to a LAN (not the WAN) port, with DHCP disabled on the router. It worked fine with the DW6000 and I consistently got 1 Mbps down if other networked computers were not in use. Never had any issue with the router. It was always something at Direcway's end that was the problem.

  9. Well, I decided to return the Netgear router to the store for credit, and replaced it with a Linksys BEFSR41wired router. It really does the job! ::..

  11. I tried 10/100 Auto, 100, and 10 separately and these did not help.
  12. All I have are CAT5 or CAT5e cables - both give the same result. The other remote computers are also at about 5.5 Mbps.
