Speeds below 500 kbs. last night

Hi Liz or Amanda,

I have a Gen 5 plan and since Sunday night has been extremely slow at night, going down to the 200 kbs. to 400 kbs. last night.

During the day the speeds are as expected. I bring this to your attention because in the past you both have been able to solve any problems I have had while Tech Support has been much less helpful.

Thank you
Tom

Nice! Thank you for the update, Tom. I'm glad the modem replacement has brought you back up to normal performance. We're here if you need us, so drop by any time!

 

Thanks,
Liz

Hi Tom,

 

Thanks for reaching out and running speed tests for us. These were done while directly connected to the HughesNet modem, correct?

 

Also, can you please double check that the coaxial cable on the back on the HughesNet modem is secure? If you needed to tighten it because it was loose, please let me know so I can run new diagnostics on your site.

 

Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.

 

Thanks,
Liz

Hi Liz,

 

    Thank you for your reply. The computer is hooked directly to the modem and the cable is tight in back of the modem. As you can see from the speed tests I was back to 30 mbs. this morning. I am only having a problem at night. The same thing happened back in June but after 2 or 3 days everthing went back to normal. I will let you know tomorrow if it slows down again tonight.

Hi Tom,

 

 

Thanks for the confirmation. Looks like we need to replace your radio, and I have a feeling your feedhorn needs to be replaced as well.

Your dispatch is currently scheduled for our earliest available slot: Thursday, Jun 15, 2017 between 8:00 AM-11:00 AM. Call us at 866.347.3292 and reference case #104463204 if you need to reschedule. Please let us know how the site visit goes.

 

 

Thanks,

We are seeing this same issue every night speed is horrible, then in the morning it's fine.  My neighbor is experiencing the same and we both had ours installed just over a month ago.
