Slow speeds with HN9000

Slow speeds with HN9000

Hi,

I had my modem changed out on 6-7-19 do to  System Control Center  web page not loading. That is fixed but still seem to be having problems. My speeds seem to be slow and and lot of time outs on web pages. I have run a few speed tests. two of the tests,one on 6-7-19 and the other on 6-11-19 things were fine. The others were not.

Can some one look into this for me?

Thanks

Re: Slow speeds with HN900

You may want to consider https://testmy.net/ to run your speed tests.  The site will keep a record of your history of speed tests, and this is very useful to the HN staff on this site. In fact, it's required if you want them to address speed issues.

Re: Slow speeds with HN900

@Liz @Amanda @Damian et al., 

 

Should someone with an HN9000 system use specific test sizes at testmy.net, and if so, what should those test sizes be?  Perhaps 12MB/4MB, like with Gen4?

Re: Slow speeds with HN900

I finally was able to create an account at testmy.net.It kept timing out. I have only ran 1 test so far with a 3MB file.
This is the link.

Going forward, make sure that you're signed into the account you created at testmy.net when you run the tests.  This way the tests will all be held in a single location for the reps to view.

Re: Slow speeds with HN900

Good morning Sunlightbywheel,

 

Thanks for posting and sharing your speed test results. With your Basic plan offering 1 Mbps download speeds, you could also try running the testmy.net speed tests with a 5 Mbps download file size to save on your limited data. At this point however, I would hold off on any further testing. The diagnostics I've run on your site is reporting rain so until the weather clears I would just keep an eye on performance. In the meantime you can also try power cycling the modem and clearing your browser cache.

 

 

 

Thanks,
Liz

Re: Slow speeds with HN900

Liz, Thanks for the reply.
I have power cycled the modem and have cleared my browser cache. I have did this in the past as well.
I had everything else disconnected from the modem except my PC to make sure nothing was overloading the connection. Sometimes a power cycle does help some but, usually just briefly.
It is a light rain or overcast here but this kind of weather has never really affected my service. It really takes a pretty severe storm, usually to my south to effect me. It took me over 3 hours to download a 12 MB file for my daughter for school today.
I want to say I have had Hughes net for about 10 years and it has for the most part always worked well enough for me. I never really have ran any speed tests in the past because it usually would work. I have checked everything I can think of on my end. I do know something is different in how it is working now and its not good.
Thanks again for everyone's help.

Re: Slow speeds with HN900

Good morning Sunlightbywheel,

 

Thank you for the additional information. I re-ran the diagnostics on your site and I'm not currently seeing any rain status, so that's good, and so is the rest of your diagnostics.

 

Your testmy.net results URL helps, thank you. I see that the test file size is different every time the test is run. I'd like to get some consistency, so please run a batch of 3 tests during the time you are typically seeing the slow speeds, and space each test 5 minutes apart. Be sure to manually select the download speed's test file size and in your situation, I would select the 1.5 MB test file size, like this:

 

 

 

 

  Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.

 

Thanks,
Liz

Re: Slow speeds with HN900

Hi Sunlightbywheel,

 

Thank you for your patience while I investigated your site. Diagnostics on your HughesNet equipment is all fine, so I'm not sure why your speed test results are that low. I'd like to get a tech out there to replace some equipment and review any components to ensure they haven't degraded over time.

 

Your dispatch is currently scheduled for our earliest available slot: Wednesday, Jun 19, 2019 between 08:00 AM-11:00 AM. The tech will reach out to confirm the visit, so you can use that opportunity to reschedule if needed. Please let us know how the site visit goes.

 

Thanks,
Liz
