What a headache. Repeat Question=x4

Hi guys. I dont understand WHY there is an email or chat option for Hughesnet Customer service,Period. Each & Every time i attempt to get resolution with Either im given the exact same reply which in no way shape or form answers my question so i thought id blindly give this a try. Ive asked multiple times but just as every issue ive had with Hughesnet, this one too Never gets Resolved. Im so disgusted with this poor internet service. All i want, ALL I WANT is to recieve the service that i pay for. WHY is that such an issue for customers with Hughesnet? My burning question (because i have seemingly no other option and im desperate to connect to wifi before i lose my job over this issue) *How do i get a WIFI REPEATER from Hughesnet?* ive searched the site many many many times. There is no order form, request info., or prices anywhere! How much is it & How do i obtain one? i absolutely Cannot get an answer from Hughesnet! Ive contacted them every way possible to no avail and if this is the Only way i can connect to the wifi that i pay for then i guess i have no choice. Ugh.
Please, if youre a customer with one of these devices Please Help Me.
sincerly disgusted

*How do i get a WIFI REPEATER from Hughesnet?*


  Why does it have to be from HughesNet?


  I would guess your not on gen5, which already has WIFI capabilities built into the modem.  If you just want to add WIFI to a Hughes system, this is the one I used before gen5:


  Or if you are already on gen5, and just need an extender, there's many of them on Amazon:
