Web Acceleration Not Supported

HughesNet Tech just left after changing out the modem and radio, and checking my equipment.  I am barely able to connect to the internet.  I did manage to get this posted.  When I go to and click on System Status - this is what I see.

It's been reported by others too.  Next step is waiting for the reps on this site to investigate and report what may be going on. You can also try calling the 800 number, or use chat (if you can).  




“Web Acceleration Not Supported” is a normal condition.  Hughes continuously updates configuration and technology to maximize user performance.  Web Acceleration technology developed by Hughes accelerates non-secure (HTTP) web browsing by pre-fetching certain content, minimizing the impact of the round-trip delay over the satellite.  However, the vast majority of web content is now secure (HTTPS), so Web Acceleration has no benefit for most web browsing. Hughes is turning down the Web Acceleration components in certain areas to evaluate the performance impact, if any, as part of our normal network maintenance and optimization.
