Or you could follow the detailed procedure I outlined for you in your main post here:
And THAT is going to tell you exactly what is using what.
Unchecking the box in and of itself will not stop "auto-pay"
Hughes is going to require a payment method be on file or .......
A switch to Invoice Billing (extra cost of $5)
A user will either need a certain level of "creditworthiness" or perhaps a security deposit posted.
In order to set up Invoice Billing a call to Customer Service must be made.
I have invoice billing myself and I agree it is worth it.
And yup, that change has to be made over the phone.
As to security deposit or account on file or nothing listed at all I'm sure is done on a case by case basis.
We have to consider that Hughes has a considerable investment in terms of hardware.
If your service is "out" why didn't you start by opening the modems internal diagnostic system .... the SCC found at 192.168.0.1
Look at the icons at the top center are they both "green" ? (marked as #1 &2 in this graphic)
That will tell you within seconds, not days the condition of your system.
When you drive a car and it acts "funny" don't you look down at the dashboard ?
Well the SCC is your systems dashboard.
