Where can I find my Wi-Fi password?

If you have a Hughes HT200W Wi-Fi modem, you’ll find your wireless (Wi-Fi) password printed on the sticker on the back of the device. 


Changing your Wi-Fi password

It’s easy to change your Wi-Fi password. First you must access the System Control Center. The System Control Center provides access to system status, configuration information, and online documentation. To open the System Control Center, follow these steps: 

1. Open a web browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. 

2. Type in the address bar and hit Enter.


3. Click the Wi-Fi Settings link on the left side of your screen.

4. The default password is “admin.” Enter this password in the dialog box and click Login.  


5. Once you have logged in, you will see the Wi-Fi Settings home screen.


6. You will see your existing password written in the Password field.  To change your password, clear what is written there and type your own. Choose something that is easy to remember but cannot be easily guessed. Then click Save Settings and exit the System Control Center.

How do I connect my wireless device(s) to HughesNet?

Which channel should I use?

There are two SSID numbers, one for the 2.4GHz frequency and one for the 5GHz frequency.  Both channels are available with the HughesNet Gen5 service. The difference between the channels depends on how you would like to use your service.  The main benefit of the 5GHz frequency is that it offers a higher speed for communication between your local devices. If you wanted to transfer a file between your iPad and your PC, or stream a video from your laptop to your TV, you’d want the higher speed the 5GHz network provides. If you’re downloading from the internet, both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks are able to provide the 25Mbps speed that Gen5 delivers, as long as your wireless signal is strong enough.
