My speeds have stayed right around here since installing last week.  The lowest my DL has been was around 1Mbps.  It hasn't dropped below that once.

So far, i'm happy.  Just hope it lasts.

Agreed, and Direcway is still working on making it more consistent. I guess we're the lucky ones  :lol:

I couldn't do an upload test until I force ranged, that's weird.

EDIT: Well, the past 2 days, I've been getting very high transmit errors and I'm unable to upload.

My failed transmissions are higher than ever seen, a few weeks ago they were around .5%.....signal good (81) cross pol (87) and no precip, Dway must have something to do with it?

There were some small business users that had rate code problems this morning on dslreports.

I think Direcway is tinkering around with some things, maybe getting ready for the new software update?

My transmission errors were sky high for about a week.  I was barely able to even browse.  I finally wound up re-commissioning.  After that I noticed I was on the 128k rate code and the error rate has dropped dramatically. 

What are your uploads like?

Currently right around dial-up.  My best was 78 so far under the 128 rate code.  Pings are slow for me today as well and I'm still getting a pretty good amount of errors, but not nearly what I was last week when I was on 256 2/3. 

I could force range and try for a higher rate code, but I'm going to leave things alone since everything appears to be working better than it was last week.

I got really excited at this first test.

Looks like it was just a small burst though.  Still, speeds are looking good.

Slight drizzle brings transmission errors to record high, as well as speeds are far from consistent for me.....this upgrade has been a pure joke since 12/01/05 for me. Good signal, good cros-pol at the minute download speed is 1000 however can not upload zilch!  :angry4:

It is a lot better when they have the systems running correctly.  And that really depends on what satellite you are on.  Im on AMC9(83W).  My speeds went from 1000/64 to 1066/200.  Ping times definately improved from an average of 1100ms to 715ms..which translates to faster browsing and faster secure sites...

Well I am THRILLED that my DW7000 upgrade came today... (NOT)

This upload isn't bad, but sure isn't what others are seeing. I NEVER got this bad with the 6000. It better get better because I dread calling Dway support...

Any suggestions?

Well... I did some stuff after reading some posts. Download still stinks. ~ 200 Kbps.

Don't feel like waiting for the tests. 6000 didn't drop that far in the evenings. It is OK for browsing I suppose.

Upload is great. I forced ranging about 4 times in a row and the speed is nice and steady now.

Here is my last upload test:

And that is a poor one. Most of them have been running in the 180 range.

I read somewhere that there is some issues on Sat Mex 5 (me), but nothing concrete. Any info?

Wonderful.

Do any good calling them and bitching, or not? I assume not. It never has before.

I signed up for beta. I beta'd on the 6000 last time. Maybe they can really screw the modem up.

There's not much you can do. Go bitch, and tell them you're switching to Wildblue (you probably should switch to it anyway). See what they say, I've heard that they get angry or something.

What package do you have?

Pro w/ Dynamic IP. I would be happy spending the extra 10 bucks for the upload speed if the downloads stayed up. The 6000 was never that slow during peak. 5:30 is wake up time for me. I wonder how it will be then.
