Re: Linksys Router DDWRT not working with hughesnet the way I want

No luck. I cant access my router with 192.168.1.1 with HughesNet plugged into it.

everything looks correct, did you try a factory reset and set it all back up from scratch?

Sometimes it is the simplest thing. I'm my own worst critic when I do something like that.  Smiley Happy

Mine just has a little internet world symbol etched above it. WAN is wide area network which really means any connection to get outside the local network, like the internet connection, ie the HughesNet modem.

Charles, you mentioned for him to plug back into the WAN port or check the cable several posts above his. I assumed he read that.
