Re: Connecting a router to Ht2000w modem

@Zack 

 

I just want to be sure of something...

 

Is your setup something like this? 

 

HughesNet modem <---> ethernet cable <---> ethernet to fiber converter <---> fiber line to other house <---> fiber to ethernet converter <---> ethernet cable <---> router.  Is this right?

 

I don't know what kind of converters there are to do this, as I'm not familiar with fiber optic lines, nor going from an ethernet cable to a fiber optic line (and vice versa), but I know that there needs to a be a conversion from the electrical signal that the ethernet cable uses to the light signal that the fiber optic line uses (and vice versa).  Perhaps something has gone wrong somewhere in that system, as if it connected with Exede's modem it should connect with HughesNet's.

Re: Connecting a router to Ht2000w modem

Good morning Zack,

 

Thanks for posting. Very interesting setup. I've never heard of one like it, so let me ask around. I'll let you know if we've tested anything like that or have any insight on this.

Might help to know exactly what converter you are using. Is it similar to this?

Yes, your connection diagram is correct.

Re: Connecting a router to Ht2000w modem

Good morning Zack,

 

Our testing crew has not attempted this type of scenario, so we don't have documentation that our HT2000w is compatible with fiber converters. We figure if that converter worked for you on the other satellite ISP's modem, the converter should theoretically work with ours too. We're not familiar with those devices, like if they're plug and play, but if not, perhaps whatever config you have may work on the other ISP, just not with ours.
