Test your Download with a bigger file.

From what I see is that it is prime time and that could slow your speed.

What is your Weather like?

This is my Speed DownLoad. From what I read today is Satmex5 is having problems.

That is my Sat.

This is a bad one today.

Holy cow (moooo!!!!)!!!! jkandra!!!! Thats soo fast!!1 How did you get it like that.

Also, what # should I call to complain/request credit until it is fixed?

It just depends on what time you are on and when you test . This is the best test ever. I should have checked my UpLoad also.

Are these tests accurate?

Is there really that BIG of a difference in speeds just because of the 7000 modelcompared to the 4000 model.  Here's my download/upload.  After a reboot and clean boot cycle on the modem (or whatever they call it when you unplug the cord for 20sec) .

OMG Can you believe this "DirecWay Customer Suport" My ass

I call, hold for a long time, talk to some guy with a weird accent...I had to ask him to repeat things 2 - 3 times ( I think "Robbie" was getting annoyed ).  He asked me questions blah blah blah, told me to do a speed test using mydirecway and I was like can we use a different website and hes like sure any one "A real good one is testmy.net" and so he told me to go here/there lol.  And I do the test and my speed was around 300 or so and He was like ur using a wireless router please disconnect it and stuff so I had to hook my computer up directly to the stupid modem and then try...It was like the same.  Then he had me try to download that stupid program off their site to help "optimize" my browsing speeds which I told him I had already done and hes like well try it again and Im like im sure Ive already done this.  So anyways I run it and it tells me Ive already optimized the settings so hes like "Ill be right back" and he comes back like 12 minutes later.  Then hes like go into IE and do those like Lan Settings, Which I had already done.

He also had me reboot my comp twice and then the system twice.  He made me do it off the site restart thing and also made me unplug it. 

He also told me that my computer might be older (Which I had to inform him I just purchased this computer 2 weeks ago)

So after all this blah crap hes like go to your Network Connections and he was telling me to do something ( I could hear someone in the background telling him to tell me) and I already had the settings he told me.  Then he disappears again for about 10 minutes...comes back and hes like Sir...

"We've detected that your computer has programs that might slow it down such as Adaware/Spyware and Miscallenous things like that".  I was like BS, This computer is at its peak being new and all and Ive cleaned it up, I dont even have an antivirus/spyware program installed.  (What the Hell, They Scanned my computer?!?).

Then hes like well, lets just do the test on MyDirecway and Im like how about testmy.net and hes like no, thats not at all Accurate.  So we do the test off of Direcway and of course the speed sseem "average"

Heres what it said Speed: 751 (down) / 63 (up) kbps

and I did a test earlier yesterday and I got December 14th, 07:00PM - 256/26 kbps

Off of testmy.net im currently getting

NEWS...

Over at the dslreports.com forum...a member said that Engineering told him that there was a firmware problem on a lot of the DW7000 modems, and that they are going to rollout new firmware starting Tuesday.  Don't expect to get it right away, those firmware updates usually take a few days to go out to everybody.  I'm willing to bet that everyone on IA8 (decade) will get it first, and then satmex....

Just hang in there a few more days, I think they'll get it fixed...just wish it didn't take them so darn long...

DW7000 is simply a gimmick to sucker people into a contract in hopes they wont or cant afford the switch to Wildblue.....if Wildblue offers some serious competion look for a buy out rather than service upgrades.

This should be labled as Trick 7000.

*obviously the modem was not ready for sale to the public, works for Dway as we [glow=green,2,300]PAY[/glow] for the trail and errors, try this and change that. routines.

DWAY has just been bought out by Skyterra.  The deal to be finalized in Q1 next year.  Skyterra already owned 50% of Dway but now owns the whole company.  I hope that with this change of management, things will improve considerably.  I think a lot of the problems are caused by the fact that the satellites being used by Dway right now, were never meant for Broadband data communication.  Wildblue's bird is. (I think).  The SpaceWay 3 bird, which is due to launch early 2007 is designed for this purpose.

They seriously need to rebuild their customer support system from the ground up. 

As far as the DW7000 being a gimmick.  I think not.  Like most companies do, they did release it too early.  One of those bad decisions that I hope they don't repeat.  My attitude will surely change when mine comes in and it doesn't work.  But because I've never had a problem with Dway, i'll give them the benefit of the doubt.....for now...

I don't think its that your satellite is overloaded, but that there is a problem with the firmware on the modems connected to it.  But yes, it will help if they move people off of it.

My speed will probably slow down when more and more people get on it, but since I only use this system at night and on weekends, it shouldn't get too bad...
