Good morning olympicfarmer,
Thanks for posting and providing all this information, it helps. I just ran diagnostics and despite the weather at your gateway being fine, I'm unable to communicate with your modem. Let's replace it and see if we can get you back online. I'm shipping you a complimentary modem, please expect it in a few days. Here are instructions on how to replace your modem. You can use the box in which the new modem arrives to return the old one; there's a return label in the outer pouch.
I owe you a very big "Thank You"
The modem arrived today, so we are back up and running. It set itself up automatically, and appears to be working just fine.
My wife sincerely appreciates having our connection back for Xmas. I hope you enjoy a wondeful holiday.
The system's working for me. You may need to call/chat with customer service to see what's going on.
Woke up to no system, transmit, or receive lights on the modem. Unplugged it for five minutes, plugged it back in- same thing.
The last time this happened turned out to be a system outage.
I can’t find any place on this website that simply states whether or not the system is up and running. Is this happening to anyone else or just me?
I would recomment the chat, at least to find out if there's an outage. The mods here will be able to run remote diagnostics on Monday for you, but for now, you could at least see whether there's any kind of outage in your area.
Oh, that stinks. I wish we had a system status page on the community....
Edit: Downdetector shows outages, and one of them looks large (ish), near Wichita, KS.
If the outage is still happening...
Preferably with a LAN cable connected device, can you get to this modem page? If so...
1. What do you see listed for a State Code in the System Summary box near the top of the page.
2. What do you see listed for the Satellite Receive Signal Strength in the WAN Info box on the bottom left of the page?
Unfortunately, that does go to the modem itself. But, there is another way that you may be able to get the page with the info.
If you normally connect to the modem via WiFi, you can try that too. The LAN cable connection is usually requested due to it being the most basic, direct access, but you can still try the other.
If you still can't access the modem pages, try power cycling the HughesNet modem. To do so, unplug the modem at either the wall outlet or the power pack, wait for at least thirty seconds, then plug it back in. Then wait five minutes for the modem to be as fully back up as it can be under the circumstances, then try to access the modem page again.
In reality, it's even possible that the power cycle will fix the problem and you'll have access again, but chances are it won't.
