New to DirecWay!!! A few questions

Recommended Posts

Well I just got DirecWay and I have the DW6000 modem. Well my speeds are about 670Kbps down and 40Kbps up. I know thats not great but my dial up was about 27kpps, so im happy. Any DW6000 users have any suggestions to maybe get this download speed higher? My signal is about 54 and I know that doesnt effect my speeds. Now ive been lookin at the DW4000 seems cheap on Ebay how hard is it to switch over and would it be worth it? Any tips, suggestions etc etc would be great!!!

I went through that site, and I have downloaded tweaks and did nothing for me. My computer is nicely set up, at 752mgs of ram 2.7ghz proccessor and only 20% of hard drived used of 80gigs, anything else??  Oh i could live with the current speeds of 1200kbps but its at night not sure how long they will last.

Van Buren's cable nut settings worked out great.  I was pulling around 995 every time.  However, my download stayed the same even with VB's settings until I bumped the tcp send/receive up to 1491.  Many Thanks.

turner7205 ...no it won't give you a false reading...so long as you use the retest link...and don't click the back button. Using the back button produces a cached result....which is normally huge and is false.. :evil6:
