I am using that one also. Sometimes I feel like I am back on dial up.

Dutchdog,
I'm just saying that sat can't compared to cable, dsl or even a wisp.
Different economics, different enviroment, different equipment.
If you have another option ... take it. I would.
If sat is your only option, then learn how to get the best out of it.
A rant, is just that, a hirst fit. It doesn't effect the outcome.
Knowledge, however will effect what you hetero your system.

Satellite internet is not really "plug and play"  then forget it. It takes a lot of interaction on the user side to get the best experience that is possible from it. I do wish the sales people were more up front about this important detail.

dutchdog, you do realize that AT&T only bought DirecTV for video subscribers, right?  DirecTV is just a re-seller for Hughes and Exede, which AT&T was already a re-seller for both them as is.  Nothing will change.

Hi dutchdog and all,

This should now be resolved. HughesNet contacted Facebook Admins to check for blocked HN IP's, and this should no longer be an issue. This should have only affected Spaceway customers on the OMANE gateway for Omaha, NE and Bismark, ND.

We do apologize for the inconvenience.Thank you to everyone for chiming in and helping to address others concerns. It is very helpful when people call in to report these instances as well, since it brings concerns like this to our attention more quickly.

Well, I'll be damned. It wasn't DNS. It wasn't HN. It was the weirdos at FB (or a reasonable facsimile there of: some automated IP address blocking bot that got out of control).

Sigh.

Nah, it's always HN's fault.  Smiley Happy

Although it is a problem with shared proxy addresses.

Chris, I still cannot connect to FB on my HN9000.  Connection is refused by FB.  So, I guess there still is a problem...  BTW, I can connect to FB with my cell service.

Hi cybercycle,

Can you power cycle your modem, routers, and reboot your computer. Also clearing out your cache, history, and cookies after you have rebooted and let us know if anything changes.

Thanks,
Chris
