I left my home again on December 5th. Everything was turned off. Kindle and cell phone went with me. I returned today (16th) to find that I am at 82%!! I was on my computer on Dec 3rd to pay bills and then shut it down. On Dec 4th I was in and out running last minute errands and packing. I left on the 5th. Something is wrong somewhere and I cannot believe the beam is using my data! Please help!
Just make sure to NOT unplug or reboot the modem before a rep has the chance to look at the logs. I'm sure they'll be able to tell you what it was that used your data.
You may be able to see yourself, as well, by looking on this page.
After monitoring your account from the 4th to the 16th, I was unable to locate any devices using data for this period of time. This means that there may indeed be a data leak somewhere and will require the help of our engineers to investigate. In order to have this issue investigated and escalated, please run a Modem Isolation Test. Information on this process is can be found by reviewing this link https://community.hughesnet.com/t5/Tech-Support/Where-s-my-bytes-Testing-for-data-leaks/m-p/77194#M5.... After you post your results, I will have this escalated
Please make sure you also disable the WiFi during this test. Instructions on how to do this can be found here https://community.hughesnet.com/t5/Tech-Support/Turning-off-built-in-wifi/td-p/75043
Bobbie, I can stream just fine at relatively low speed, and so can others. You may have other issues that are affecting your ability to stream (such as congestion, or specific settings on devices). If you would like help from this community troubleshooting you system and finding solutions, I suggest that you go to the Tech Support page and click on "Start a topic," then provide some detail about what's going on. What data package do you have? What time of the day do you try to stream? What devices do you use to stream? Have you tried turning off the Video Data Saver and see if that improves the experience?
Yeah, we need to figure out what's going on here. Would you mind starting a new topic under Tech Support? Just click on "Start a new topic." It'll help visibility and increase the chances of prompt help if you have your own thread.
I have performed test as you suggested. For some reason I cannot upload my screenshots here. Can you give me some help? I tried copy/paste, upload photos.....I don't know what I am doing wrong??
