Anyone else having trouble with their web acceleration?

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or is something wrong with DirecWay right now?

Everything is looking good on the System control page except for "Web Acceleration Status" it says that it's not operational.

TCP Acceleration status is also "impaired".

Is anyone else having this problem right now?

Hey BirdFan, I had a simular problem a few days ago. Acceleration was down or impaired. What happened to me was I was just browsing and lost the signal completely, went down to 5 or 6. So I went out for a look around and everything was fine - no clouds or nothing. Over the course of about 10 minutes it slowly climbed back up and finally became operational. But I was a bit bewildered.. Maybe a june bug crawled across my feed horn - not sure...lol :D

It's back up and running now...

When it was down, my signal strength was still in the low 60's.

From the Direcway site.  "TCP Acceleration impaired"  (thats when your internet connection has had too much to drink  :haha: :haha: :haha:

When the DIRECWAY terminal is in this state, some applications may not get the benefit of TCP Acceleration. This is typically a transient state and should clear up by itself in a few seconds. If it persists, try power-cycling your DIRECWAY terminal to see if it recovers from this state.

Web Acceleration inactive...

This is the normal Web Acceleration state when you are "not" actively browsing HTTP based websites. Your terminal will automatically bring up the Web Acceleration connection when you start browsing HTTP based websites.

Note: Secure HTTP (https) traffic does not use Web Acceleration. So if you are only accessing a secure site (such as an Online banking site), Web Acceleration may be Inactive.

This usually clears itself up, but the old power on and off trick will clear any states stuck in a static condition.

I had it go out again tonight, but only for 20 minutes...

Yesterday I did some heavy downloading (329 mb file), so I think that was the problem, but I don't know why it would have gone out today.

Once you get all dialed in your speeds should stabilize mine are typically in the 1100's now.....if only something could be done about the upload speeds. :roll:

ONCE AGAIN I REQUEST A COPY OF THE DW6000 SCHEMATICS, IF I HAD THOSE WHO KNOWS WHAT COULD BE DONE!

It's all in the proper tweaks, with the right settings most browsers are too close to call!

I had trouble with the web accelerator for about 3 weeks with about 3 - 4 hours of phone calls to Direcway - lots of talk but little help!

Finally someone there reinstalled my whole system, re-registered with a new site ID and it is now working OK.  DHelgoe

I think Dway has more than it's share of "ghosts in the machine"....I have had problems with the re-activation when my account was changed from the 169meg cap to the 350meg cap.  What was supposed to take 15 minutes took 3 hours  plus to setup, and I had real tech support with someone who was not going to let the "ghost's" win!!  We basically did the same steps from my console....and again from his console....Finally from my end it started walking through the menu, but got half way and crashed.  The tech went to my account removed everything and we set it up from scratch.........this time no problems walked straight through the setup program, and everything is working just fine...e-mail, web speeds all good now!  The business support team is really better than the farmed out support!  It was worth the $30.00 for the headroom of 350 megs (4hours) and good support. The hold times on the phone have been 3-5min the 3 times I have called, and they fix the problem then without giving you some number to reference the next guy with!

P.S. I think I still pay too much for the service.....but at least when I have a problem now I don't dread calling them, and they fix it instead of transferring me to somebody else.
