I don't really know what satelite I am on and I don't believe I have any viruses or spyware I check it daily sometimes twice a day.

I live in PA that is all I can tell you as far as what satelite you may know.  If there is a place to find it I will gladly look for it.

My signal strength is 65

Thanks

I am sorry I thought you meant location of satellite.  I don't know a lot of this stuff.  I work with them on my job and not on them as in learning a lot about how it all works.  I just know it is not as it was advertised LOL.  Of course I may never have cable or DSL where I live so I am hoping that maybe there is something I can do to speed this up.  I appreciate your trying to help me.  Thanks

I would make sure that the tech comes back out lol...

Another thing to make sure of, is that the dish is peaked for both horizontal transmit and recieve, since the transponder you are on requires it...

Also...post your info at this site, lots of experts here

You're on the same sattelite and transponder that I was on with the 6000...

There's got to be something wrong with your setup.

Run this test, and post your results, as it gives your system time to "warm up".

Make sure you have your firewall disabled during the test.

Also, what browser are you using? IE gets faster speed results than Firefox.
