Upgrade from Gen4 to Gen5 was a snap, working well

I was sent the new HT2000W modem, hooked it up, waited the prescribed hour and all is good.  I happened to already be on SAT 17.

Satellite NameEchoStar-17-NAD
Gateway ID3
Beam ID19
Outroute ID21

 

It's been two days, sitting right at 30+Mbs down and 2Mbs up with testmy.net.  Definitely snappier.  Located near Lake Oroville CA.   Historically I use this for backup to a wireless ISP I use in Chico.  They do drop out once in a while so the backup is required to keep my employer in the Bay Area happy.

 

While the built-in wireless works fine, I won't be using it as all data needs to pass through a security device between any isp and client systems here. 

 

Nice update!
