WiFi Help

I'm hoping I can get some help here - this has become a constant/frustrating issue.


Have tried configuring the wifi either through the HT2000W or a standalone Google WiFi - at times leaving both the 2.4g and 5g on the HughesNet router on/one on-one off/both off - Google router on/off but still dealing with internet drops, I have connectivity just no internet. Is there a configuration setting I should check? Should I fly with just the HT2000W or am I better off having it's WiFi off and running through the Google WiFi (which is the way I ahve it configured now and still internet drops).


I realize that there are certainly differences in performance from DSL to satellite service, but this seems to be more than that.


Hi Bkfstman,


I may be able to help here... are you using this Google Wi-Fi system?


In the meantime I can run some diagnostics on your HughesNet Wi-Fi Modem to see if there is any signal issue going on.





Hi Amanda,


Yes - that is the system we are using - just one of the google routers, bought it new about a year ago and has performed well until the move and the internet provider change.


Let me know if there is something I can do to help diagnose.





I did run diagnostics on your HughesNet equipment and see everything looks good to go. All the HT2000W Wi-Fi bands are turned off and the only devices I see connected are a DVR and your Google Wi-Fi product. 


The only thing that stands out is some packet loss between the Google Wi-Fi and the modem, which appears to be on the IPv6 side. Try using the instructions on this page to enable IPv6 on your Google Wi-Fi device and let me know if that helps at all:


Thank you

On a side note, and unrelated to the issue discussed in this thread, make sure to watch your data usage if your DVR is a DirecTV or Dish Network DVR.  People have seen considerable data usage by these devices, even when they are not streaming.  Just a heads up.
