What is the best off the shelf wireless router to buy then using Hughesnet HT2000W router? I would like to replace it with the ORBI wireless cable modem.
You must use the HughesNet modem with HughesNet service. No other modem is compatible. However, as stated by infinitytec, you can use a 3rd party router along with the HughesNet modem.
I have a netgear nighthawk x6. I tried to hook it up to the hughesnet HT2000w. However, for some reason, I can"t get the wireless to work or get the internet to connect. Any ideas?
In addition to infinitytec's suggestion, make sure that your Nighthawk's IP is not the same as the HT2000W. If it is, it will cause a conflict and not work properly. Check to make sure that the Nighthawk is set to automatically (dynamically) obtain the IP address.
Also, if you are going to be using your Nighthawk's WiFi, make sure to disable the WiFi in the HT2000W. See "How do I manage my built in WiFi modem?" in the following PDF for instructions on how to disable the WiFi.
Thanks! Im going to work on this now. I will let you know if I have further questions. I went back to the HT2000W last night and no one could play a game on it. I am not sure why it was like that when we had internet with ATT and it was only 15Mbps and three could play at the same time while streaming tv!
Or set a static address for the new router on the Hughesnet modem.
Thank you guys!!! I think that might have fixed all the problems. I will have to wait til the hubby and boys get back to see if the issues with gaming is fixed but at least I have the router issues fixed!
