Hughesnet is not required to submit anything that could reveal their own copywrited or protected intellectual properties. Not even courts could force a company to reveal confidential information. Courts in the past have only been able to force companies (like twice, tops) to change the base operating system.
We have been around in this rodeo before with another user much like you, it's not going to happen.
There may be two boards inside the unit, but that doesn't mean the main board is seperate in functionality from the daughter board, and that the Router firmware is actually seperate in nature from the modem firmware. The daughterboard is litterally just a wifi module with wifi radios/amps and other wireless components on board.
The only bit of information I can throw out there to support what I stated about the two boards in the unit that is public is this:
That is the only interconnect between the two.
I just read your post three times. You were non-specific and implied you wanted all of the source. Nice reclama, keep peddling backwards.
Thank you for being so invested in this thread, that you read my post three times. Language is an art; one specifically meant to convey an intended meaning to the viewer. I'll conceed that I failed to provide you with an understanding of what was written. But, then you were not my target audience.
As should be obvious, requesting access to the source code does not construe an intent to modify the unit.
Then what is the point in asking for it?
I can see three reasons. 1. To modify the unit. 2. To attempt to modify a 3rd party unit, or your own, to work with the service. 3. A right fight due to being dismayed with the service, as in, "I'm angry, so I'm going to get them in some way."
With that said, maybe I'm just not seeing something.
I could care less if there is a difference between the "modem" and "router", you will get the same response that Jezra did.
Language is an art; one specifically meant to convey an intended meaning to the viewer.
No, you conveyed enough of what you intended - to troll this site with enough non-relevant requests and inaccurate technical demands as to make a nusance out of yourself on multiple threads. You've succeeded in that, I assure you.
In another thread you said this was a support area and that others weren't giving you the appropriate support and should butt out. Here's a clue: If you don't have a valid technical request, don't expect a valid response, much less one that is satisfactory.
My advice is if you keep trolling and spamming this board you may ultimately find yourself with a response that you didn't expect, nor find satisfactory at all.
We're done here.
It piques the curiosity to why the responders of this thread have such a vested interest.
Why I want the Linux source is irrelevant, it is my legal right, along with every other person that has received one of these modems, and requires no explanation. Whether it is running on one PCB or another is irrelevant. The 3 year old quoted thread regarding a different modem is irrelevant. That you all have any opinion on this is irrelevant. The fact that these forums had one other user that asked similar questions is irrelevant.
Unless you are in Hughesnet employ and have the authority to decline and fullfill my request, you have no need to respond to this thread, except seemingly to promote a disinformation agenda, which is telling in itself to what Hughesnet encourages/desires from you.
Hughesnet encourages nothing from any of us other than not violating the community guidelins or TOS.
What piques peoples' curiosity is when someone asks a strange question, like requesting the source code for a proprietary product.
With that said, I believe your response has answered my question.
You will get the same response from @Amanda that Jezra recieved three years ago.
I have been here long enough to know how things work, and what will happen. You WILL be told, "Sorry, but we can't give that information out".
@GabeU, changing the subject: is your download speed still awesome? I'm having inconsistent speeds, and have gone back to how it was when the Gen 5 system was first installed, hovering around 17-20 Mbps, but dipping a lot, so things buffer a bit and sometimes websites don't load (a few minutes ago, Testmy was refusing to load).
