I am a relatively new user to this ISP but am becomming very frustrated with the speed. Speed tests are great but I work online using https// sites for just about everything and they take a very long time to load and cause horrible issues with my work. I tried a few fixes I found and I feel like they helped but for a very short time, less than an hour. I tried reseting my windsock which I found from someone else that uses the same site www.Zazzle and was using Hughesnet in 2010. I can not believe this is happening since then. I see alot of people with this complaint. Anyway, I did malware and virus tests. Rebooted the modem and applied a fix found here to turn off UPnP. That helped for nearly a day and now it is getting slower and slower. I have lost quite a few hours of work due to this problem. I thought that switching to Hughesnet was supposed to increase my speed not make it non existant. Please help.
Something you could try, though there are no guarantees, is changing to a public DNS, like Google or OpenDNS. I use Google's and it works well for me.
If you do not know how to do so, this article should help...
Good morning kashmier,
Welcome to our community and thank you for your post. I browsed around Zazzle.com on my cellphone while connected to our Gen5 service and everything seemed to be pretty snappy. Are there any other websites I can try to test out? Also, does this behavior occur on all your devices and have you checked to ensure your browser is up-to-date?
