Latency Or Satellite Shortcomings?

Finally, a suggestion worthy of investigation. Thank you.

Very likely.

The timeouts may very well be due to Century Link, which has issues all over the place.

Your'e welcome.  

 

Unfortunately, what you're going to find is that HughesNet can't really do anything about Century Link issues.  Don't get me wrong, I have no doubt that HughesNet reports the issues, just like all providers, but it seems that the problems are getting more profound as time goes on, and for a lot of people, not just HughesNet customers.

 

Century Link is just bad news.

Re: Additional info about latency

Got off the phone with Corporate Executive Care. I reported th slander and accusations when I was just trying to sound my thoughts on why. The fellow asked me if the modem was near anything that can interfere. Wow, so simple and I didn't consider it so I don't blame you guys either. My medical monitoring device was apparently interfering with it. It operates via cellular network. I moved it, ran a trace and ping and no timeouts and no extreme latency.

Next time "Professors" offer suggestions instead of belittling a person.IMG_20191206_163851_01.jpg

And thank you for literally wasting everybody's time.

You mean like this?  

 

"If you don't have an ethernet cable do it via WiFi, but be aware that, if your WiFi connection is weak, it can cause the results to be highly inaccurate."

 

That includes interference.  So get off your high horse.

Re: Additional info about latency

My apologies. I did not equate weak signal with interference. Throughout all this I was always getting a strong signal (5 bars) using various tools to check it with. Corporate suggested that although I was getting a strong signal it was being scrambled, hence interference. So I missed the shuttle suggestion you had implanted somewhere in your post. After reading this and doing the trace via WiFi I checked for signal strength but missed your instructions on interference. Once again my apologies. I've gone through the posts and still can't find any mention of interference, just signal strength which was above nominal.

There was no "subtle suggestion implanted somewhere" in my post.  A "weak signal" normally refers to intensity, but it's not the only thing it refers to.   

 

Good day to you.
