I have a DW4000 System.  My service has been real slow lately.  My signal is around 86.  It was working great until around the begining of November.  Is there something I can do to get my speed back?  Here are some of my speed tests I've done.  Any help would be great.

Not unexpectedly, it appears you may be on an overcrowded gateway server. Hughes is constantly load balancing, although they way they go about it I personally consider it load shedding. They have only minimum control over how many of who goes where during commissioning. So they end up moving a lot of customers around after the fact.

Since you're a DW4000 user, first thing I'd try is running WebSetup. Note your current gateway and transponder assignments first. When WebSetup completes successfully, you just might find yourself with a new transponder and gateway assignment. If there's no change, you can then call tech support and ask to be moved to a less congested gateway.
