1. Grounding..  Hell NO!!  Call the company and tell them what he did!  That static buildup might be causing some of your problems.

2.  If he grounded your system like that, he probably didnt point the dish correctly.  I would call the installer and tell them that it is unacceptable and they need to send another installer out immediately.  The 1 watt transmitter is standard for the consumer edition.  2 watt is for SOHO and business plans.

Also, the Satellite you're pointing at has been having speed issues, esp during the evening hours.  Try running the test during the day and see what happends.

Cancelling the Direcway service is going to be a pain in the ass, even if it hasn't been 30 days yet.  You have to pay them an additional $100 termination fee, and a deposit of $400, then uninstall the system yourself and send it to them, upon recieval they'll refund your $400. If you want them to uninstall it "professionally", that's another $100.
