It did mine, when a storm came through it really slowed down. I remember this specifically because I lived in north texas and got storms all the time so downloading porn was outta the question in the afternoon. ;) Just a friendly tip.

Mine in normally in the upper 70's.......extreme rain will drop it in to the 40's, once it drops into the 30's red flags begin to appear until the signal improves. Speed remains the same until it dips into the 30's....unable to use system at that point.

I have DirecWay and I love it! Storms do not seem to matter with mine. I live in Northern VT not far from the Canadian border. I understand that signal strength has to do with which band you are on. Some bands have different signal strengths. Maybe I am wrong but I have been on 2 different bands and signal expectations have been different.

After veiwing some of the signal strenths here I feel pretty lucky. One trick I have learned is to keep the sat waxed with a good car wax!

However I do have a question. To recieve a stronger signal will the satellite need to be moved? Is the any other options to recieve a stronger signal?

Thanks Mike (Louisiana)

Signal Strength- 64

Yeah, I'm on the DW6000. We've had it for a little over a year and we haven't been very happy with it at all. First, they made us get a new computer, and second, the speeds haven't been as fast as they promised.
