For chrissakes, Ithe only reason I'm stuck with HN is BECAUSE it's bundled (no other options) with DirectTV! And you say to disconnect??!! What am I supposed to use, two tin cans and a length of string?
Connecting HughesNet to your DirecTV receiver is neither required, nor recommended, and the two services work just fine on their own.

Can someone explain to me how to "DISCONNECT" my Directtv DVR from my network? I have searched endlessly through the on screen menus and short of shutting down my modem temporarily so that it loses the signal and it would probably reconnect automatically, I have no idea how to get this done.
Thanks in advance.
there are 2 ways, and depending on what wireless solution you have you can block the i/p address via the admin process of the router or what'i've done in the past is to change the i/p address on the DirectTV DVR to some phony address of the wifi router
One way you can do it is to reset the network on the DirecTV receiver.
On the receiver: Menu > Settings & Help > Settings > Internet Setup > Advanced Setup > Reset Network
This should reset its WiFi connection settings.
Thanks for the suggestions! I went the enter phony newtwork name. I can now see it wants me to Reconnect my DVR to the internet from the settings menu.
