In the thread below, you offered to send Linda a D-Link router. I looked up the model number you gave and it looks very nice. I was just curious if there is a Hughesnet web page for them and how much they are. I have a Netgear router right now and it works okay, but it's getting a little dodgy, dropping the signal once in a while, and its range has diminished over time. If figured with this being one that you are sending to Linda, they have probably been tested with Hughesnet and work well with it. Thanks for the help.
Wow! That would be fantastic. I would be happy to provide feedback and be a router guinea pig, so to speak. LOL. Please let me know what info you need from me in order to send it. I really do appreciate this. I owe you one.
The shipping address is the same as the billing address on my account, being...
I REALLY appreciate this. Will there be some type of method described as to how, when and what type of feedback you would need? I'd like to do everything I can for the consideration.
Do you know how the router is shipped? The reason I ask is that I was curious if I need to be here to sign for it.
Ah, okay. I have a place that UPS leaves things if I'm not home. I appreciate the help. Thanks again.
Also, is there a place where I can input the order number to get the tracking number so I can get an idea of when to look for it? Sorry to be such a pain.
I know you won't be on until tomorrow, but there's a question I had regarding the testing of the device and such. One thing I'm a little nervous about is if they will require me to connect my DirecTV receiver to it. I ask only because I did it once before when I had my old legacy plan. I was just testing to see if it would connect, which it did, but I didn't realize that my DirecTV receiver was now thinking I was connected permanently and changed a bunch of things automatically. When I turned the connection off in the DTV receiver, the things that had changed didn't go back to what they had been. I called DTV and was on the phone for almost an hour, only to discover that they couldn't change it back, either. The only possible way to have it the way it was before was to do a total reset to factory settings, which I ended up doing, but I lost everything on my DVR. It was really annoying. I was just hoping that I wouldn't have to go through this again.
I will, of course, do any testing that they want me to, including connecting my cell phone if they would like, but I just hope I don't have to do anything with my DirecTV receiver, as I don't want to lose everything again when the connection is ended.
BTW, I don't know if you saw it above because I edited it afterward to ask the question, but I was wondering if there was any possible way I might be able to somehow get the tracking information, whether by entering the order number on a site (I got the email from Hughesnet regarding the order) or just asking for it like this, or even calling. It's not that I'm anxious, it's just so that I can keep an eye out for it the day it's scheduled to come, or if I'm going to be gone for the day I can let my neighbor (my folks) know that it's coming so if they see that it did, they could grab it for me so it doesn't get stolen or rained on or such. I've never had a delivery stolen, and they usually put the package in a bag if it looks rainy, but I just like to be safe when I can. Thanks.
