How do i tell
Your beam is the "Beam ID" in the Satellite box on the lower right of this System Control Center page.
Edit: It's also shown in location C of the IP Gateway Association State breakdown shown on the Chuck's Basix webpage linked to earlier that explains how to find your Gateway location. It's where his example is showing 066.
On the same page and in the same box where you found your Beam ID, what is showing for your Satellite Name? Is it Echostar 17 or 19?
Edit: To answer your question, what you're seeing about the software download status is usually as a cause of something, like bad weather or something else causing an issue with your signal.
The gateway for Beam 13 on the ES17 satellite is in Flagstaff, AZ.
Right now it doesn't look like there's any bad weather there. It's only partly cloudy, so it's highly unlikely that the problem is being caused by weather. Unfortunately, you're going to have to wait until the reps get back online in order to have them figure out what's going on. They're on M-F from approximately 8AM to 5PM EST, and they'll reply to help. In the meantime, it would be a good idea, if you don't already, to leave your HughesNet modem plugged in so that they can perform remote diagnostics on your HughesNet equipment if they deem in necessary.
However, if you can't wait for the reps here to help you, you can call 866-347-3292 to get help. It may be something simple, but only a rep can really tell at this point.
Thank you for contacting us. I am sorry to hear your service is down. There does appear to be an outage at the Flagstaff gateway in Arizona, which is the gateway that was assigned to you during installation. Our engineers are working hard to recover this and have made progress so far as some customers are able to access their service again. We do not have an estimated time frame for how long this will take to be completely resolved. These events usually take 1-2 days to be resolved. If for some reason this happens to take longer, I will credit your account for this missed days of service. I apologize for the inconvenience.
