New user of DW here.  Of course, I'm not happy with the speeds.  When you hear "ihgh speed", I guess I expected it.  Anyway.  Talking to the yahoo's in India, they tell me that as long as you are over 200Kbps, I am fine...well, I'm running in the 100-300 range, and they gave me the same old line that it is my computer.  Anyone else here been in the same boat? 

Any suggestions on what to do?

What I am seeing is browsing speeds of 4-15 sec per page, and very inconsistant speeds.

Any help would be great!

that was a decent test...how long have you had it, I got mine and i was at those speeds within a week i was at around 1000Kbps plus and I still am. DirecWay advertises only 500Kbps and so how much can you really expect. I see your at 83 degrees are you near chicago because thats what im by and im at 83degrees.
