Around 1:00AM, or thereabouts, my service stopped. I checked the SCC and it showed the signal strength at 2, so I assumed there was at least heavy cloud cover overhead. There were clouds, but after not seeing my DirecTV lose its signal, which it ALWAYS does when HughesNet does, I reset the modem. It came back up and everything worked, but I noticed that my signal strength had jumped to 127, which is a level at which it has NEVER been. It eventually crept back down to my normal, which hovers around 110, and everything is working just fine.
I was just curious if anyone else experienced this around the same time. If so, did it eventually start working for you, or did you have to reset the modem, as well? I'm wondering if HughesNet was doing some adjustments and/or had to do a quick reset or something similar. I know they are still playing with the system, so that's why I'm thinking it might have been something they were doing.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hmm. Perhaps my modem ate some bad bytes and got a temporary case of indigestion.
I did not notice anything here either. My signal strength is still in the low 100's normally. I wish I could get it up a little higher, but have not tried to and afraid to mess with adjusting the dish. But 100 does sound a bit low esp when others are seeing higher. I feel mine should be also.
