Hughes Net HT1000 Gen4

I just got Hughes Net Gen4. I didn't know about problems with mountain lion before I got it. Lord I hope they fix it soon!
I have a MacBook Pro Retina, osx 10.8.2
IMac osx 10.5.5 and an OLD Dell running windows.
Plugged in direct to Network on the dell near 10 megs down and 1+ up.
Plugged in direct on the IMac a little more that 1.5 meg down and less than 1 meg down.
Wireless.. on BOTH MACS, between 1-2 megs down less than 128K up
I added the "fix" sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack=0 in the terminal and now
Wireless on Macbook Pro is between 5-8 megs download and less than 1 up.
Any Help?

About the only thing that can be done is wait for them to release a software patch to get around this bug that hits mac users.

Or keep using that command and remember to revert to the standard setting after HN implements the fix as having non-standard settings can cause worse issues after HN attempts a fix.
