That's the best upload I've had for a while. How are you getting 50 KB uploads?

Wow... I would give my left *** for upload like that. What the hell?

Why Speed it up, Mines been slowing down. Oddly enough ive had it for about a month now. :angry5: was at 1023 now im dipped into the 670 range.

Do you guys leave the DW6000 modem on all the time? I usually do but then end up with problems and have to unplug it and reset it.

Oh yeah, does any one use the File from My Dway that is to help optimize the connection? I havent yet, B/c i figured my TCP optimizer settings would get trashed is it worth the hassle?

I leave mine on all the time. I end up resetting it every week or so. Usually the only trouble I have is with secure sites. When that happens, you can't browse at all without the proxy enabled (so ftp and everything else fails to0).

I use the Reset6000 program that is found on DSLReports to reset remotely rather than unplugging it.

All the TCP optimizer does is set your proxy servers i believe...

Hello again fellow direcway persuers... I thought I would be a nice guy and zip up a few useful files for ya all. In the zip is the Speed guide Optimizer and the Direcway reset program (instead of unplugging, this seems to do the trick). I had problems a couple nights ago - my speed wuz like 170 Kbps and images weren't makin it thru and my whole system wuz actin nuts.. Fumbled around for 2 hours with no progress - finally I unplugged the damm thing and plugged her back in and back in biz. The reset program is pretty cool since ya might need a reset once in a while.. Enjoy!! :-P

I was downloading a taper friendly band's show yesterday afternoon when I saw my D/L speed jump from 24kBs to 174kBs (1.3Mbs) on my DW6000.  The D/L program is a peer to peer ap, so you are normally limited by the peer's U/L bandwidth.  Wierd.  A little later, Testmy speed results were showing a normal @ 97kBs with the 20+/-kBs download still active.

You'll never see it.

I have tweaked to the max, everything I have read. Max down ever is 1006 and up is around 98.

It is pretty well established that the download is capped at 1000. It even quietly states that on one of DWAY's pages. (I think for a business account) "Downloads up to 1.0 Mbps!!" or words to that effect.

I seem to hear such bad things on here about DirecWay but I had Comcast and it was down twice as much as dway + although it was fast some of the time during peak hours it was only 200k download and 80k upload . even with the DW 6000 I am always above a 1000 k down and 124 up .also when I did have a couple of days that dway did not work when I called they took off half of my bill .and with the contract I signed they can not raise my rates and in only the last 12 months Comcast went up 5 times here in albuquerque atleast on my bill. and if you called to complain about service they would never credit my bill so dway may not be for everyone but I think it is great ......

shoisfast wants to insist this is what he is always getting but cant seem to post it?

Dway spy???

I don't know about Comcast,  but my relatives who live in civilization have RoadRunner, and it is always over 3000k down and around 500K up. If I ever get it here, I will drive over my Dway dish with a bulldozer and send it back to them in a box in pieces!

What surprises me is all the people who complain about the direcway service in all aspects have nothing to say about a newbie rolling in here posting crap like that. I will keep my posts to a minimum and let the newbie spread the tales of Blistering Direcway Broadband and how lenient and willing the billing dept. just hands out credit for problems days. WTH?

I agree.

I don't know a single DWAY customer that wouldn't instantly bail out for cable or DSL the second it became available. All of us are stuck in the sticks and that is the only alternative. (No, Starband is not an alternative. A friend of mine has it and he is worse off than us!!)

Puzzles me as to why since everybody using DirecWay except me is getting well over 1.5Mb down I'm sure there is a mistake with the stats!

direcpc.com Download Average = 799 Kbps :: 98 KB/sec --- 37361 records found (30 days of logs)

direcpc.com Upload Average = 41 Kbps :: 5 KB/s --- 12785 records found (30 days of logs)
