Well I called Direcway and went round and round, only yo be sent to their website to test my connection. Funny thing is there it shows a great upload speed of 32 kb/s. The tec then went on to say that their site was right and any other site just had to be wroung.....

I assume you guys have all called to complain, what is their response? Aren't we guaranteed a certain speed? I too have been unable to get a upload score the last day or so. I can tell you that the foreign girl I talked to last night ( she reset the 6000 from her side she said) told me the speeds are the same on both their site and this one. She said they recommend you use this site testmy.net to avoid having to put in all the gateway crap and numbers needed for their test.  I do agree with Fikester, A blazing system at 3:00 am isn't gonna cut it for me.

Nothing even resembling an "upload" speed...at "best" I've had a 2.I am at a loss here,even though "misery loves company" this DW 6000 is an expensive "experiment".I'm paying for for Direcway to learn from..I've had 2.5 weeks and have spent WAY too much time talking to "Advanced Support",all of whom refer me beck to this site:I'm about to use the **^&%$&( dish for target-practice! Have done "the prescribed tweaks" on PC's,Mac,which was running "better"most recent test above,haven't the strength to re-test PC's I may cry.Will try anything,thanks in advance!PO'd redhead in Texas :oops:

Some of the techs listen or send people here then others on the tech support try to tell me this site is not correct (which I know is BS). The Dway site the numbers are all over the place.....my opinion is most of them are reading from a book as you demand answers. Then after they try a few things then they start to [glow=red,2,300] lie[/glow].

I followed the tweak that Special_Ed had and had little improvement, until I changed the number from 18000 to b000. I can not explain why this is working for me but my test sure are alot better.

More about that tweak and the way it works. Ok; to surf the web your computer sends and receive packets  of information to the various servers that make up the internet. These packets eventually translated into pictures and websites that we enjoy. Now the windows default sets these packets to a small size, if we make them bigger (thats  the tweak) then the upload is more efficient and therefore faster. Anyways if 18000 doesn't get you going, you may want to try 17a00 or b000.

ScCoghill,

The tweak that I an referencing to is posted at https://testmy.net/topic-1773. (half way down the page) Just follow the instructions on the page. Next, a few tips I have are to BACK-UP YOU REGISTRY and to set a system restore point before tweaking anything. (Just in case that it back fires.) Also after trying 17a00 and 18000, try b000. This tweak has increased my upstream from 17KB to 34-55KB. Now, about my screen name (Special_ED). Well a long time ago I had a friend who was in special ed, he was quiet Bright really but had ADD. Anyways, one morning he said "I'm not specail, just special ED." At the time I thought is was rather funny and it stuck with me. Now that you bring up the subject it is rather insulting so I am thinking of creating a new one. What do you think?
