Lets speed up the DW6000!!

Recommended Posts

HI everyone! Its nice to see a community of DirecWay user's exchanging info for us puter junkies livin in the sticks with no options other than a big fat pipe from the sky.. Here's my story - I was with the DW4000 for about 14 months and the transmitter died, so I took the big plunge and got the DW6000. I've had it for about a week now getting about 950 Kb's a second download. Thing is - I was getting 1600 with my old DW4000 after tweakin it. I've done all the makin sure IE is set right and I ran the Optimizer. Still nothin better that 950.. Well I'm hopin since I just singed my name to 15 months that by some small miracle - somebody out there could give me advise on bringin me back to 1600 Kb's a sec like I had with the DW4000. Any other suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks - Lightning Lee :D

Well Lightning  welcome to the forum.....the best solution I can give you to get back to your 1600's  is....watch Ebay closely and get another 4000 system.

Cause it ain't gonna happen on a 6000 consumer account.... :haha:

1 meg is about all you'll get with the 6000....sorry ....just the facts...

But if you do get back to the 1600's with a 6000 ....please let us know how....  :whaa:

sticks  I believe the the 4000 was better if you are talking about speed test. Direcway can not control the speed tweaks with that model. The 6000 is cap'ed. They control everything. There are some little tweaks you can do but nothing inside the modem. If you can get your hands on a 4000, that would be good. But the fight is not over, you then have to convince direcway to let you activate it. A good reason may be the 6000 is not working. You know something like lightening struck it. hehe

Hi and thanks for the input on the DW4000. I suppose I can live with the DW6000's slower download speed - after all I'd have to pull teeth to get them to re-activate a DW4000 if I went on ebay and got one.. I've checked out Ebay - and yeah the DW4000's are up for sale - quite cheap I might add. People upgrading to the DW6000 are selling them - unaware the down speed is quite significantly slower. Had I known this before I ordered the DW6000 I probably would of got another used DW4000... Oh well - In my opinion Satellite internet is going to be a short lived avenue. Its just got to much workin against it - like ping times for example. NOTHIN is gonna make that better due to the cosmic speed limit of light (186,252 miles per second or so) and geosync orbit (22,300 miles or so).. A ping has to make nearly 100,000 mile round trip and there ya have 500 milliseconds plus whatever that ping travels on the ground. So its easy to understand why investors have their reservations on this technology - But stay optimistic - technology is advancing - other avenues of broadband will be accessable by all of us in the near future I'm sure. I'm personally lookin forward to Verizon's Fiber Optic Connection at 30,000 Kb's per sec...lol :cool:

As far as upload goes with a 6000, this is about as fast as I have ever been...

And this is fairly average for upload. I don't do upload tests too often because it is too depressing. Upload speeds and latency are my only real bitches with DWAY right now. Download and surfing has been for quite a while. Secure sites are sometimes trouble, but a reset of the modem usually fixes that.
