DW6000 Speeds..... HELP!! plz

Recommended Posts

I am sooooooooo mad at myself for upgrading to the DW6000 from the DW4020!!!  My speeds were always at 1200 download and 260 for upload on the DW4020.  Now with this peice of junk I am lucky to get 300 download and 18 upload.  I have read through these forums a thousand times and tried to do the tweaks suggested... but I just don't think I am doing something right.  Can someone please help me to get my speeds back up.  I dread another call to DW support!!!  Ugh!! 

I am running Windows XP Home SP2.  Sygate Pro Firewall, AVG Pro Anti-virus.  DW6000 for a week now and they REFUSE to let me go back to the DW4020.... even though the equipment is mine!!!!!!!!!  I am just soooooo miffed at the moment.  Anyone have any ideas?

Welcome Jewelz_tx ...and I see you're enjoying the wonderful world of the 6000 downgrade.... :haha:

If you have a few case numbers ......call billing and express your dissatisfaction with them. They'll look up your case numbers and.........(drum roll)........you can go back. Of course you're stuck with the $250 for the 6000 piece of crap.......BUT...there's always Ebay......and lots of people want to upgrade    :evil6:....and they might want to charge you to open a new account.....maybe not if in the first 30 days though.

And the Dway forum has the ph# for level 2...and the pin posted.. :lol:

Hope this helps......I love my 6000 also  :biggun:

I just spent an hour and half on the phone with DW support Ugh!!!  The first 45 minutes with someone that reading from a manual and I could hardly understand.  After we tried a few things and he simply got tired of talkin to me.... he put me through to level II.  Finally someone I can understand... and he was from Texas too.  LOL  I explained my situation.... AGAIN.  and he said but 200 kbs is pretty good compared to dialup and well lets just say he got an EAR full!!  I told him that Ijust paid $250 to downgrade.  My Download speeds were well over 1200 and uploads speeds were close to 240 most of the time.... and now I can barely get 200 download.  While we were on the phone he had me perform the sat speed test from mydirecway...  it was 197down/9up.  He asked me to hold and when he came back I was a little bit more then miffed. lol  I also expressed my concern over my signal strength dropping from 87 to 62.  He assured me (again) that it would have nothing to do with my speeds.  I said no, but it does have something to do with my connection during precipitation.  he asked me to hold again.  This time a superviser came online and I expressed my concerns...... AGAIN.  I told him that I wanted my DW4000 back and they can keep the freakin $250!!!!!  He was very nice and said that he understood my frustrations and that he was gonna put the tech back on the line and he would walk me through changing the transponder I was on... which is what caused the signal strength to drop when we "downgraded".  Well low and behold.... he changed my transponder and look at this............

Hey Jewelz_tx    I'm not trying to burst your bubble ...but.....tomorrow the same shit is gonna happen. :cry: Maybe not as low as today...with the new transponder now but it will drop...a lot. At 11:00 EST level 2 support closes...that's when my speed comes back. I wish you the best of luck......but don't loose the ph#. ;)

I average somewhere between 1.5 and 1.8 Mbps and this is only the second time i have seen 2Mbps. I saw 2.2 Mbps once. some people see 2 Mbps alot more often but i have tried all the tweaks posted in the last month and can not seem to get better than my average. I dont know why they are geting better speeds consistantly. but if you cant get 1Mbps there is something deffinatly wrong with your system!!!!! :confused1:

Check your signal strength.  If it's not around 70. you'll never get good speeds.  The bozo that installed my dish forgot to tighten the bolts and the thing got so out of alignment I couldn't even connect.  After nine months of continually calling support, I was able to get someone out here to realign the thing.  Speeds are good, now.

Hey jlester ...yes there is a 1.5meg professonal account that runs $129.25 a month....I don't have that. I have basic service that's $59.95 a month plus tax...for three years now. And the $675.00 for initial install...plus $250.00 for the DW6000 DOWNGRADE. To go back to my old 4000 system....I'm stuck with the $250.00, DW6000 modem...and they want $300 more to reset my account.. :evil3:

they say signal does not affect speed but i am with you there has to be a point where not enough signal would make a diffrence. my signal is 63 used to be around 79. I am just waiting to get time to repoint my dish myself and see if it makes a diffrence.
