I've been reading success stories about D-Rats working with DVtool but I
haven't been able to use it with good results. I am using D-Rats
0.3.1b4 and DVTool 2.0beta3 with Windows XP using Verizon FIOS. I get
complaints of broken packets which appears in yellow. Sometimes people
using D-Rats and RF through the repeater can copy bits of the text other
times it's unreadable. Maybe I don't have some setup problem to be
successful going through our repeater's gateway. I'm thinking it's a
possible timing issue when the repeater tries to transmit my
transmissions from the dongle, through the gateway to RF to the other
D-Rats users who are using RF. Does anyone have settings that are
working on your computer that seems to be working so that I could try
them here. It has to be what I am doing here because it seems like
other people are having success with the D-Rats to DVTool operation.
