You probably wont get thru to tech support via calling Hughesnet. However, there is a reset button on the back of the modem. If you press it in at the same time as the lower button on the front of the modem and hold them in until any and all lights goes blank and then release them, it will do a hard rest. This may help you. If not maybe someone can tag a tech person here.
That hard reset if done incorrectly will essentially brick your modem.
Tech support had me do it. On more then one occasion. And since you cannot get tech support on the phone at this point, and seeing how they're getting no modem response, it will not hurt at all. And there is only one way to do this. And I've never heard of it bricking the modem. Unplugging it did nothing, so that basic reset did nothing.
Just saying, a qualified technician walked you through it and was able to re-register it with the network if it got bricked. Will you be able to do the same for this person?
So..I just done this again, to prove a point, I have done this a few times and didn't need a phone rep to tell me to or how to do it. It did however correct a modem issue once. And I hardy call customer support a qualified technician. That's no offense, just an observation as they honestly read online scripts. I know, I was a supervisor for a satellite provider and... anyways. I don't see anyone providing the op any helpful advice, and doing a hard reset will not harm a thing. They have no modem activity at this point, and it'll just clear the modem and reregister, that is if the modem isn't dead. But, one could offer them some advice, instead of criticizing a Person for offering some. Seeing as so many people have viewed this, and at this point hasn't chimed in.
I'm not criticizing and you shouldn't take it that way. The company prefers that red button only be pressed at all unless advised by a representatives or a qualified technician for the precise reason I stated, but have it your way.
Welcome to the community! I appreciate you jumping in to offer help. Generally we should stay away from doing this type of reset unless suggested by a HughesNet moderator or other HughesNet representative.
