We've only had HughesNet for three weeks, today the connection says either no internet connection, or when it does connect the Hughes Net recommended speed test says .5 Mbps. Tech person wont be here until Friday to look at this, but my wife needs this for work. We only have a single computer connected to Hughes Net, and have tried turning everything o nand off, etc. This has been going on for hours. If it is faulty tech, how did it break down in three weeks, is that normal?!?!
when you have these issues, please check http://192.168.0.1/#!/home/status (it's an internal modem page; no internet connection needed). What's the number next to State Code?
That code indicates all is well with the equipment, and unfortunately this points to factors on your side being the likely cause of the issue you're experiencing. You had said a tech would be coming on Friday. Did he figure out what was wrong?
My bad, I had been using a different connection for internet since the hughesnet is still so slow/spotty. The code is 0.0.0
The varying speeds can be expected from satellite internet, because of the limited broadband that must be shared among large numbers of subscribers, as well as other factors. It doesn't take much to overwhelm the system,, especially with so many people working and learning from home. I don't know about the cables, but it may be a factor. I do hope this gets resolved for you quickly, hopefully tomorrow.
