Hello & anyone know anything about satalite internet?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm Valentine.

Wildblue my satalite internet company has me use this site as they are trying to figure out (and not doing well at it) why my Inet slows to a crawl  about mid afternoon threw the evening but speeds threw the morning hours.  By crawl I mean 100k compared to morning speeds of 1500k.  I understand the more people but come on.  Hoping to figure something out before I have to shell out mucho bucks for them to come out.  I figured I would say hello and get to know you all as I seem to spend half my life here :).

Thanks all take care.

So simply, does your speeds start to drop at a known, repeatable time. And then does your speeds near the end of the slowdown, speed back up within about a half hour?  

If you had a equipment problem, you would notice the slowdowns all day or intermittently.

A failing TRIA(thing at end of the dish) may die during the time that the sun heats it up directly, during the day.

Tria dissembled link.. This tria is an older model that has water leakage problems.


If your dish was out of alignment, then you would experience slow speeds all the time and rain would disrupt your signal.

Support will delay you or blame your perfectly functioning computer on what are actually WildBlue system slowdowns. Or blame you and delay you until you stop wasting your precious time calling them week after week.

Thanks all.  This happens in the afternoon and stays down all night ( well at least till I go to bed then I don't know what it does) then first thing in the morning it is working great.  The people at wildblue help have been very nice and seem to be trying to help.  I think I have talked to everyone of them in Texas.  They have given up trying to blame my computer as when they do I drown them in pluse test.  They are coming out today :( I'm sure they will have their hand in my pocket.
