You could try changing your DNS settings to Google's. 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
You should do the following with a LAN cable connected computer, not via WiFi.
Go to http://192.168.0.1/#!/usage .
Click WiFi Settings. admin is the default password.
Click Advanced Setup, the DNS.
Uncheck "Obtain from ISP" and enter the DNS settings into the two fields, with 18.104.22.168 in the Primary field and 22.214.171.124 in the Secondary field.
Click Save Settings. Then click logout in the upper right, or just exit the page. Exit the System Control Center.
If your phone's browser had still been open, you should close it and reopen it, then try Amazon again.
You're welcome. It may work and it may not. It does for some. I'm the oddball in that, for me, it's actually the opposite, as in Google's DNS gives me more Amazon problems than HughesNet's, but I have seen a good number of people have success with it. Mostly concerning computers, but I imagine it's the same, or at least similar, with phones. I hope it works for you, too. If it doesn't, please let us know, of course, as we can try other things, and the HughesNet reps can get involved if we fellow customers can't figure it out.
Good luck! 🙂
When did you first begin having this issue? The original problem started back in July of this year and since the network had the fixes put in, we have not received many, if any Amazon-specific complaints since then. So, if you have not had your issue resolved since then, I think we need to do some more troubleshooting. Depending on the answer to the above is, I will give you the appropriate next steps.
I've been having problems accessing Amazon on and off since the Gen 5 install. Was working fine literally an hour ago, but now get this. Other sites appear to be fully accessible.
I've been having this happen quite a bit over the last few days. One thing that sometimes seems to get it going is to flush my DNS cache. It doesn't always work, but sometimes it does.
If you're not aware of how to do this, close your browser, then open your command prompt and type, without the quotes, "ipconfig /flushdns", then hit enter (there's a space between ipconfig and /flushdns). It should give you a confirmation of success. Then close the command prompt, open your browser and try again.
I hope this works for you. No guarantees, but it's worth a try.
