DW6000 (Need Help)

Recommended Posts

I just got my DW6000 system about a month ago.. I was really exited about getting faster service cause I have always had dial-up and there is nothing faster that is offered in my area.. Anyway almost immediately I realized somthing wasn't right cause my downloads and browser would slow down and after a while they would speed back up.. Then I read about the FAP and I realized what it was.. I think I would have stuck with crappy dial-up had I known about the FAP.. How convienient that they forget to explain all the limitations when u call to order the service.. But nonetheless I paid the $600 bucks down and agreed to the 15 month contract.. So now that I'm stuck with it I have a few questions that maybe someone can help me with.. First off when I tested my connection on this site it tells me that I'm only using like 60% of my host connection.. Why is that and what can I do to improve it? Can anything be done at all? Also when using P2P programs what should I limit myself to as far as downloading? I know that the rule says no more than 169 MBs within 2-4 hours but I figure you guys may know a little more about it.. I use Limewire Pro btw.. Also I visit PCPitstop regular to check my connection but it never says anything about how much of my host connection that I'm using.. I will post my results from this site so everyone can see and mybe have some ideas.. Finally I have tried a couple of the TCP optimizer programs and the Bandwidth monitor programs but honestly I don't see any improvements.. If this is just the way it is then I guess that's it but I want to know for sure if it's not just something I'm doing.. MY PC is a Dell 2400 desktop with Pentium 4 2200 processor,80 gig hard drive, and 256 RAM.. If anyone can help with I would greatly appreciate it.. Thanx

Try this if you haven't already. In Internet Explorer, at the top of your browser where it says File Edit View and all that, go to Tools. Then go to internet options. Then choose the connections tab, and down at the bottom of that hit the LAN Settigns button. Uncheck both of the first two boxes. Where it says Proxy Server, check both of the boxes. Now hit the Advanced button. Out beside HTTP type in 192.168.0.1 and for the port number type 87. If you are having problems gettings Secure pages to show up at all, use 216.167.150.238 in the Secure box with port number 8843. In the exceptions box, you should put 192.168.0.1;DirecWaysupport.com . Now hit ok. Then hit ok again. Now go to the advanced tab. Scroll down till you see something that says HTTP 1.1 Settings. Under that make sure that the box beside where it says Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections is unchecked. Now hit ok and then close your browser. Open it back up and do another speed test.
