Should I try to buy a 4000 or 4020 modem?

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the forum :hello:

i would stick with it for a few days.  my speed wasnt very great right when i started, but it got better.  if it stays bad, i would probably go with the 4000

I'm currrently have been given the "Eng. is on it and they want you to do 3 speed tests each day for the next 3 days and then they will fix your problem." - so I 'll wait. 4 days and call them

Hate to steal another's post, but I have the exact same question. Only difference is I have been paying for my DW6000 for about 13months and it is almost paid for. However, I have noticed the difference in speeds of the DW4000 and have noticed several on E-bay. I wandered if I bought a DW4000 will it work with the current DW6000 dish? My current specs vary so much, but I have used Rev's tweaks, TCP Optimizer, and the Proxy settings. Best I can get is:

Not sure if i have the right forum. I am currently using the DW6000. But i am trying to buy a DW4000 on ebay. If i happen to win it would i be able to use it instead of the DW6000? If i can then i will buy it if not then i will just let it go. Any help would be appreciated.
