I am a new customer, as of February 20,2016 and my anytime allowance is completely gone! I have 1 phone and 1 laptop connected to the internet. The only thing I have used the internet on my phone for is emails and my son has used the laptop for homework(about 1-2 hours). I turn off the wifi to my phone before I go to bed so that it wont be running. My son has also tried to connect his Xbox One to the wifi but it says something about the IP address is different. Is this normal for HughesNet and what can we do about getting the IP address fixed on the Xbox?
If you are getting a IP address that started with 169 that means that you are not getting a IP address at all, to fix this problem get to a cmd prompt and type ipaddress to see what you really have, or type ipaddress/ release6 and release will get a new IP address from the server
Usually, at least for many plans, you get 20 days where your usage allowance resets every night. I wonder what plan you signed up for. Using it all in two days means there was some very heavy usage for sure. You can identify when that usage was by signing in to your account, going to "support" and choosing "Internet Usage in the upper right. I presume you have installed the Status Meter already.
