Below is my previous post regarding the problems that I had in December.when a tech finally came out after two weeks of trying to get it fixed on here and on the phone. He said I needed a new dish. "they never came back and changed it out" after that the speeds did come back to normal for a whole 2 months. Now the good old hughes net is back to it's lovely 156kb/s downloads since friday afternoon. I have a series of programming exams due sunday night. this needs addressed asap. and yes I have done everything on my end to make sure its not me or the equipment. Here is the latest and greates speed test that i drained another 250 mb on https://testmy.net/quickstats/Doblin.
As you can see whatever was done when the tech called hughes net in December my speeds were greatly improved even with not replacing the dish like they said they would since its not a gen 5 dish. My amazing video of the customer service rep from december can always still be uploaded to youtube for anyones viewing pleasure.
"MY DECEMBER 2018 post"
Good morning everyone!
Im inquiring about a problem that started about a week ago. Our internet speeds have came to a crawl every day around 3-4 in the afternoon and the download speeds dont increase back to normal untill around after midnight or later. After that the speeds resume back to normal till 3-4 the next day. The cycle has been repeating itself. I have 18 gigs of anytime data left.
Things I have done
Power cycled modem numerous times
Checked satelite for damage or misallignment
checked ip configurations
changed some dns numbers around to googles dns
checked cables going to modem
insured modem is plugged into wall not outlet
checked drivers on all of my laptops and checked status of wifi information on my smartphones
turnd ivp 6 off completely
turned firewall off, made sure modem was plugged in to laptop.
Here are my speed test i performed for roughly a 30 hour period
ran last speed test with all ssid tabs on each channel disabled and saved .
Unfortunately, the reps aren't usually on during the weekends, so the earliest one will most likely reply is Monday. Once in a while there is one, though there are no guarantees.
Your best option right now, at least with the situation you're in regarding your programming exams, is to call customer service, as it's likely that this is the only way to get a HughesNet rep to investigate before Monday. Chat and email are an option, as well.
The only thing I could suggest to try is something connected via LAN (vs WiFi), though you may have already tried that.
Yea i have Gabe, i just dread talking to outsourced tech support thousands of miles away when their going to ask me to do everything that I already have done. I made a great video of it last time. Ill probably just drive 30 minutes to the closest mcdonalds and use their wifi for my tests Sunday.
Here is the latest rounds of speed test done multiple times through friday to this morning. Dish needs replaced or moved. Im on beam 49.
