Upload sucks, but downloads are quite fast for satellite.

... Is ADSL or cable not available in your area?
Nope, there is a CO about 26,400 feet from us (no DSL capabilities), and I live 15 miles from the nearest town which is Washougal.

If that is indeed satellite, you don't need to do any tweaking. That's pretty fast. 8)

EDIT:

Download Speed is:: 364 KB/s

Bottom Line:: 63 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in .93 second(s)

Are you sure you didn't edit those results any? Downloading at 364 KB/s doesn't match up with downloading a 1MB file in .93 seconds. At that speed, it should've taken you a little under 3 seconds. You want to try running it again and posting your real results? :idea:

I assume you do not have a DW6000. If so I must get the tweaks you have done. Please let us know what system you have as well as any tweaks.

I'm on a DW6000 which I just upgraded to from a DW4000 a week ago. I don't get any where near those upload speeds though...

Reason I haven't upgraded yet, waiting on Wildblue, if and when it isn't vaporware. :D

Onward:

I finally made my host a dedicated host/server, acts a router/firewall, its sole purpose right now is serving 2 clients.

HELP, please....

I have a DW6000, that for the most part works 'ok'. I need to reboot the modem every week or so (normal?), and for normal surffing etc it is much faster than my old dial-up method at 33.6 max.

HOWEVER.... I sign onto a webcast of a lecture once a month, and it likes to hang. There are 3 lectures. One at 4:30 Sat PM, one at 7:30 Sat PM, and One at 8:30 Sun Am. I have noticed that the Sat connections are much more prone to stals & drops than the Sun one is, and that the Sat Evening (7pm) one drops more than the Sat afternoon(4pm) one. Is this my connection speed or the uplink speed. The highest quality it appears to send is about 150kbps, which come through great, when it drops to 34, it pixalates and video stalls, but audio continues - below that and it drops altogether. Shouldn't Direcway be able to handle this? I've been told by Tech Support that it is because the Internet iteslf is to busy Sat PM - is that True?

512 WiFi just became available - is it more reliable?

I also see that others are getting 36x normal, I'm only at 13x - Are they @ commercial $$ level, or should i complain?

Sunday Am stats are:

Download looks very slow according to others posted. Won't get excited yet, need more tests to arrive at a conclusion. I am usually on in the middle of the night so I hope that will help.

scojon and acker1, welcome to testmy.net, I believe the DW6000 is capped at 1 mbps or so for downloads, in return you should see better page loads, well better then the older DW4000 systems.

I can not help with DW6000 as I do not use it.

See http://www.dslreports.com/forum/sat for help.

And

I have DirecWay very best Commercial 'plan'. $1,000.00 up front bought the DW6000, a .98m dish, and professional installation (which wasn't so professional). Monthly charges are $129.95.

At about 6:00 this morning I knocked down this download test just for the fun of it...

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 954 Kbps about 1 Mbps (tested with 748 KB)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/auth_check.cgi?num=252525

My uploads average (according to this site) about 124kbps. According to www.mydirecway.com I get speeds over 300 'up' (and I do have enhanced 'up - - so I dunno which numbers are closer to being the most accurate). Personally, I do not trust anything DirecWay has ...they used to be called DirecPC until a class action suit ripped them up ...then they changed their named (very quickly) to DirecWay to escape 'the heat'. Check out www.direcwaysux.com for an 'eye-opening' experience about the down side of DirecWay ...I've got a few posts on that site as well ....well founded ones too!

The above is about the fastest I've ever logged at this site (maybe a tad faster at times. My account is SUPPOSED to give me 1.5Mbps down and 256kbps up (enhanced) ...but you can only plan on getting 80% of that in "real life." I've never had to reboot or power-cycle my modem except for two times, and both of those times were due to some sort of strange power fluxuations that I believe were nothing more than the lies of a DWay Tech Support agent. (I'm on a UPS that feeds me a constant 120vac/60cycles ....so I doubt I'm getting any 'flux').

Anyway, having to reboot your modems isn't normal, yes - DirecWay SHOULD be able to handle "streaming" feeds (or at least mine will provided the net isn't totally congested ...but then again I've got their PRIMO account). If DirecWay is telling you that you cannot view your lectures due to "network congestion", they are really saying that there are so many users there isn't enough bandwidth to go around because they have oversold their accounts. Satellite G4R @1201.MHz is supposed to have 10,000 users. DWay sold over 43,000 Commercial Accounts on that one frequency and doesn't have enough bandwidth to handle everyone "all at once". They claim they are installing "new switches", but ten billion switches aren't going to add bandwidth ...it's just another "shuck and jive" from DirecWay.

I used to use a DW4000 (Professional account) and it would NOT handle streaming feeds at all ...especially if it was the least bit cloudy (heavy-grey clouds I mean). One thing to remember is that DirecWay is selling more contracts than they have the bandwidth for. That translates into slower speeds and less bandwidth for ALL users of Satellites G4R @1201.0MHz (owned by PANAMSAT) and the newest satellite Horizon 1 (or Horizon ?) ...anyway, I'm using G4R and during the day I may as well switch to dialup (yesterday my download dopped from around 1,000 to less than 30 ...and I was not a happy camper. DWay is killing my business with their BS. I was unable to even log into Google and their Tech Support sat there and said they found nothing wrong with my connection and that I was running "full speed". The conversation ended when I suddenly received a dial tone, which isn't unusual for them. Later that day, (after 7PM), the speed started increasing. By 2:00AM it was back to normal. So there ya have it. The whole trouble was network congestion, EVEN FOR THEIR BEST ACCOUNT THAT ISN"T EXACTLY CHEAP ...but it gets as slow or slower than a dialup "by day". Quite maddening and nothing anyone can do about it because that's the way DirecWay does business. To hell with the customer ...let's make maximum profit. (DirecWay is also called Hughes Network, an India-based company). You can bet their satellite service in India is "first-class" ...that's because we (other countries) are paying for it ...and that's the bottom line as it was told to me by a PANAMSAT CEO. There are far faster Satellite linkups out there, but who has 8 grand for the equipment and 2 grand a month to pay for the service? (Even then, the speeds never get above 5.5 'down' and 2.5 'up' ...or so I'm told.

Cheers!

Hope this answers SOME of the questions.

I am using the older two way modems. DW-4000 I think. One trick I have learned was to wax the dish with a car wax.

However, I am intrested in how to up my signal strenth.

silvertoe, you'll be fine, in order to get better you would have to get an installer.
