DIRECWAY SPEED PROBLEMS

Recommended Posts

I just got my Direcway DW 6000 UP AND CREEPING. Here is my test through AOL:

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

Connection is:: 98 Kbps about 0.1 Mbps (tested with 579 kB)

Download Speed is:: 12 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (prem)

Test Time:: Sat Apr 23 10:17:39 EST 2005

Bottom Line:: 2X faster than 56K 1MB download in 85.33 sec

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 3.5 % of your hosts average (aol.com)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-E8QVK610Z

I am using Novell Groupwise for work email and it is sOOOOOOO SLOW. Can anybody help with advice - I have no Cable or phone access yet due to remote Lake property

Is Direcway really this slow all the time?

Help

No DirecWay is not that slow. First I would stop going through aol. That is most likely your biggest problem. Post a test not going through aol.

Dishdog. there are other things that may help your system. TCP Optimizer works for alot of people. XP Smoker is great as well. I can provide you with links and instructions if you need them. There is not much if anything you can do to tweak the DW6000 but you can do things to your computer to make things better.

I just moved from NY to FL going from roadrunner to DirecWay now. I find it to be VERY slow... I didn't know it was like this. It's the only thing provided in the area though, unless I want to go 56k. Is there anything I can do to upgrade it or tweak anything? Thanks in advance.
