Help me make my Direcway Faster


Recommended Posts

I have Direcway 6000 and I hate it. I have my Apple computers networked with an Airport Extreme Base station. I have 3 computers running on my network: an iMac G4 20", an iMac G5 20", and an eMac. The iMac G4 20" is the main computer where I do all of the networking from. My speed is around 1kbps-200kbps max on a really good day. I have spent countless hours on the phone with the freaks from India who can't speak English and they always tell me to unplug my modem from the base station, plug it into my iMac G4 20". They try to fix it with a bunch of weird proxy settings that seem to screw it up even more. And then they tell me I am good to go. Anyway can anyone help me make my internet faster with my current configuration?
