My DW6000 Download Speed SUCKS!

Recommended Posts

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 993 Kbps about 1 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 121 kB/s

Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/

Test Time:: Thu Mar 17 23:44:35 MST 2005

Bottom Line:: 18X faster than 56K 1MB download in 8.46 sec

Diagnosis: Looks Great : 19.06 % faster than the average for host (direcpc.com)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-AJU4Y17KH

Earlier tonight it was 171 Kbps so I called Direcway.  After the call, my download speed was 386 Kbps.  I defragged the harddrive even though Disk Defragmenter said it was nto needed and now I am at the 993 - 1,021 Kbps.  However, these speeds are nothing like the speeds being shown in the other thread on the DW4000 speeds.  What gives???  Any ideas?

amkazen  Hey welcome to the forum.. :lol:

In response to your question....yes there is a big difference between the two systems. The 4000 on average runs about twice as fast as the 6000. Uploads run very close but the downloads don't compare. The 6000 has an internal processor which CAN BE controlled by Dway...where as the 4000 does not. The internal software (sent by Dway through your sat connection) is the limiting factor here. Hope this helps to clear it up...if you have more questions....just ask....someone will answer you.. :haha:
