Bird Fan Posted February 4, 2006 CID Report Share Posted February 4, 2006 So I power-cycle my modem today (because it had been on for 5 days and I was getting lots of little red X's) and when it comes back on, it says I have a signal of 10 (prior to power-cycling it was 50). So I think no big deal, I'll just try it again. Same thing happens. Then I think "Maybe they're having problems.... I'll just leave it off for a while." After about 2 hours of it off, I turn it back on and it's still at 10. So I eat dinner, then call Direcway. They won't transfer me to level 2, so I have to sit and talk to an Indian who doesn't know anything and it takes him 5 minutes to give instructions; he says something, I do it, *waits 30 seconds*, then he tells me something else, *waits 30 seconds*, ect. They finally come to conclusion that my dish if off alignment... They say that they're going to get an installer out and re-align the dish. Fortunately, they gave me a temporary dial-up account, so I can be on that for a while. And I checked my dish, nothing's off. I even tweaked it a little last weekend. There is more movement than normal; like if I pull on the left side of the dish it moves a lot, but it doesn't change the signal at all. I think it's a faulty transmitter, what do you guys think?
