Where Did My Upload Speed Go?

Somewhere in December 2003 my upload speed on Direcway Two-Way has fallen to 1.5 to 2 Kbs. On TestMy.net I have measured speeds of 2Kbs to 3Kbs with a maximum of 5Kbs. After extensive contact with various application tech support entities, including Direcway and destination server support, I have not resolved this problem. I have uninstalled and reinstalled many applications, included previous versions of Direcway without resolving this problem. Maybe a survey of Direcway Two-Way users upload performance may provide some insight? If necessary, this can be pursued later. Help!! Dial-up is not the answer; even though it is faster.

You on satelite?? Possibly the thing with the mars rover is affecting your speed. Nasa is using a lot of bandwidth on their satelites right now just to get pictures from the little rc car. I would have no idea why you would only get 2kbs. Just wait someone on this forum will have a better answer. :D

I just made a tweak to the upload results script, I have an offset number that I used to fine tune the results of the upload script... it was set low for your connection type... a little too low, so your score was lower than normal

but you should get right around 50-90 kbps ~~ no way to make this faster

I am now getting 5K/sec for mediun testMy.net, but still way below the scale for Satellite (50 - 128).

This could help. I am connecting to a virtual server, and it appears to have three layers to get to the physical loacation. I need to look at this.

I don't understand why "Upload Speed is: 7 Kb/sec" is about right for this post?

This is good information, and I read this before making this post. Thanks for this information.

Sorry. Direcway Two-Way (2-Way) is satellite with up and down connunication links; that is, there is a transmitter is part of the antenna (dish).
