Sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum.

I had a Direcway 6000 system installed several weeks ago and have been unable to access several important non-secure websites such as Macmall, Ebay pages, etc. No problems with my dialup ISP but Direcway either loads a portion of a page and then craps out or fails to access the page altogether. Also once accessed some but not all pages/forums work. I had to switch to my dialup in order to access macnn's forums - I could load the main page but not any of the forum links.

I've spent several hours with Direcway TS without a fix.
I'm ready to bail but was told that I'll be responsible for a $375 install fee!

I'm using Explorer 5.2/ OS9 or X. Tried dumping cookies, clearing cache/history, every combination of TCP/IP, proxy, security setting, etc.

I refuse to pay $60/month and have to retain my dialup just to access several key sites. But it's sure faster than my puny 13K dialup!

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rick

just a guess. What happens if you try and load the pages with the IP address instead of the name?

It may be necessary to create a .hosts file of the sites that you like the best. Or you may try a different DNS server, that may work better than the ones that you DHCP to.

Just guessing

Do you have the same trouble if you use Mozilla/Safari?

I'll be curious as to how this problem gets resolved. I'll be at my parents' house soon to troubleshoot they're new Direcway system.
