1:23 PMRobert:Thanks.The receive led,center light stopped working on my modem
1:24 PMKate Seasons:We're concern to know that you are experiencing issue with your service right now.
1:24 PMKate Seasons:In case I need to, is it okay if I ask you a few questions to further assist you?
1:25 PMRobert:My service is fine but the light on my modem is not working
1:25 PMKate Seasons:I see. Robert, your receive and transmit light should be blinking. Are they blinking or totally not lit?
1:26 PMRobert:center receive is totally not lit. Even when I reboot it does not flash or come on
1:27 PMKate Seasons:But this chat session is connected through your HughesNet service?
1:28 PMKate Seasons:When your transmit and receive light blinks, it indicates you are receiving and transmitting signals.
1:28 PMRobert:yes its the LED Bulb its burned out

1:30 PMRobert:yes MY System is fine just no receive light
1:32 PMRobert:Can I speak with a supervisor please?
1:33 PMKate Seasons:Robert, since it shows that the system is fully operational, we are just checking if the issue is just with the lights or the whole modem itself. Have you tried to reboot your modem before contacting us?

Re: Somebody please help!!

Thanks Liz! I appreciate this. I just couldnt justify paying for a service call when my system is getting above average up and download speeds. Not having a receive light has been driving me nuts.When I am watching tv or doing something else I would always glance over to see if there was activity on my modem.If my receive light was blinking I always knew there was unauthorized downloading going on. You are the best!

Hi Robert,

Thanks! I totally understand, do let me know how the new modem works out for you. Please don't forget to return your old modem in the box the new one comes in; the return label should be in the outer pouch.

Thanks,
Liz
