I am getting the exact same issue you described, however I have not changed any settings. Please note that I can stream channels through my TV...And my internet is working perfectly for everything else except what is mentioned below:
-I cannot connect to Netflix via my smart tv through Hughesnet. I have an ethernet cable running from modem to tv. Until 4-5 days ago, I could. I have 98% data remaining in my plan.
-I cannot open youtube on my smartphone and play a video. Will not work. If I disable wifi from Hughesnet modem and use cellular data...no issue.
-I cannot open and play a video which has been sent via text message, using wifi (Hughesnet). Can walk outside and turn off wifi, and use cellular to open and play.
I truly believe Hughesnet has disabled this functionality for the time being. It's pitiful...I've only had Hughesnet for 11 days.
Seriously frustrating. If this is Hughesnet service...No thanks. I'll cancel and they can come get all this stuff.
I solved the issue!!!!
I disabled "Web Acceleration" on the HughesNet system control center site. Everythiing works as it did before now. I have no idea why, and I don't care. Give it a try buddy. Hopefully it'll work for you.
im in the same boat.
Only used for streaming. never have issues. its usually slow but weve adjusted. its never not worked like now. And theres no tech support.
The internet seems to work. i can surf google. cannot connect to Netflix. or prime. or disney.
Any other suggestions on things to try/check?
I am also having the same problem. My wife and i can not upload any videos for or business because of this issue. We can not manage any of our videos we already have up as we cannot acess our services. Why would hughes net restrict people from a service they pay for. Will there be any compensation for this unwanted restriction?
Why would hughes net restrict people from a service they pay for.
HughesNet isn't deliberately restricting access to anything. If access to a site is not working, it's an issue, not deliberate. However, this doesn't mean that having a difficult time streaming, as in buffering and/or things taking a long time to open, isn't as a result of congestion and activity prioritization. As of 3/18, HughesNet is giving priority to more important activities, like educational and business collaboration software usage. During high calls for this type of activity, streaming will take a back seat until that call reduces. And, as stated, congestion itself will affect these activities, and right now congestion is very high.
