Is there any advantage to reaiming my dish to echostar 19? I'm on echostar 17 now.
Hello everyone, No complaints and all is going swimmingly, but I do have an interesting, hopefully simple question.
First my system: HT2000W using the wifi for 4 Windows 10 computers, two wireless printers, wifi speakers using Apple airplay and/or Apple Airport Express (itunes), irrigation for small avocado grove, communication from you solar panels and periodic Arduino wifi projects.
What I want to do is have everything connected the HT2000W's wifi, but I want to allow internet access to only two of the computers. Two of the four computers NEVER need to talk to the internet and I don't want them using "accidentally using valuable HughesNet bandwidth, but I want them to have access to all my wireless devices so I can print and I have the ability to transfer files between computers. Does anyone know if this is possible and, if so, how it can be accomplished?
Thanks for any suggestions you can think of.
You can easily do this if you assign the computers a static IP, and omit the Gateway address... Not sure how you would do this on other devices or operating systems, but in Win10/7 you can do the following.
1: Open Control Panel
A: Win7, that's easy!
B: Win10, click Start and type Control Panel, then select Control Panel when/if it pops up... Good luck!
2: Open Network and Sharing Center
3: Click "Change Adapter Settings" on the top left
4: Right click on your Network Adapter that you wish to change
5: Select Properties
6: Uncheck Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)
7: Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
8: Click Properties
9: Here's the fun part! Depending on how you have your HT2000w setup as far as IP/DHCP ranges goes, you will need to enter in a few particular addresses.
In most cases you will be using the followingish, making sure to keep the last octect of the IP address unique between all devices. Below is an example only.
10: Click OK, then close all the annoying windows you just opened.
11: Assign the IPv4 you used as a static mapping in your HT2000w.
Note, doing this change will most likely prevent you from being able to use other networks unless you go back to automatically obtaining an IP address for the network adapter.
I've sequentially eliminated connections looking for the offending device and have found it: its my laptop. Bewildered, I noticed a few days ago that when I checked the GD (wink) sync status, there is a folder that fails to sync and the process keeps reinitiating and fails again and again. Since Anytime and Bonus quotas are gone for this month I can't get a handle on current usage now that sync is shut down but it would sure seem to be the culprit.
A separate observation is that since my service is "degraded" there is very little speed difference from when it is not. Hmmm.
Is there a spot in hughesnet email to add a trusted sender? We are working with 5/3 bank and this is the reply we received from their IT department... "their email security is blocking the ping we send to verify it is a valid email. IT has verified that this issue should be resolved once the customer makes the necessary changes in email" "security settings feature in your email account where you can add certain senders as trusted senders"
Can anyone help?
When you're signed into HughesNet's email, click on Preferences at the top. You should then be able to see the Trusted Addresses button on the left, which you click on to bring up the place where you can add the addresses.
If you don't see it, after clicking Preferences click on Mail, which should open the tree so you can see the Trusted Addresses button.
Make sure to click Save after you've entered and added the address.
Hope this helps.
Is it possible to see how much total data I have used month over month for the last 6 months? All I can seem to do is see the current month and one month previous. Also, the chart shows when I run out of plan and bonus minutes, but how can I tell how much data was used at the slower speed as well?
Unfortunately, nothing HughesNet has is going to give you that kind of information. They can only show data usage going back to the prior month. I don't know if the more expensive 3rd party routers hold info for that long, but they may. That won't help you now, though, of course.
Regarding data used while subject to FAP (throttled speed), no, there's no way to separate that data usage from anything else.
Glasswire is a program often recommended for Windows based computers. It monitors the data usage on that computer and tells you just what, on that computer, is using the data, but even with that you can only look at the current and prior month's data usage.
We are changing to Gen5 this week. Current system is set up on 2nd story, with the dish located on the roof. The problem with this is it is on the other side of the house from the Mac and our main living area downstairs so we use wifi to connect to the current modem. I would like to be able to plug ethernet directly into the Mac and Macbook Pro at our desk with new install.
I am hoping the installer will have knowledge of how to accomplish this. But I am also looking for input from others. Do I need to have a repeater on hand? Or another access point?
Thanks for posting. You can always ask if the installer can move the modem to your ideal location. Alternatively, we do have a wifi booster available that can, as the name implies, strengthen your wifi signal in the house. Let us know how the upgrade goes!
Speeds are not even close to what I was told they would be.
I was told this would be the expected speed after FPA throttling. I am supposed to be at full speed now.
Did some testing starting a 5:30Am here and speeds look good but the charts where terrible. This last one was at 8am do see what it looked like when I went from bonus to regular time. IF I had this dat flow on a regular basis even if the speed dropped during peak I would be very happy.
Unfortuanely this is the exception NOT the rule. The rates during a single run of the test are usually all over the map, typically over 80% variance. As a process engineer I would say the system is NOT under control. Not sure whre the data is controlled but would expect it to be at the main office not local. So I suspect the tech will not be able to do much except maybe point me to a better Sat.
Can one of the techs on here explain how the data is supposed to be controlled? I really don't care to see bursts over 100MB when it next drops to 5MB even if it gives me a 30MB average. This seems like it would be jacking everybodys data rates around.
Has anyone had an luck using Gen5 for streaming will in the Fair Use speed slow down? I was told I should see 5M minimum. I thinks this is another case to the phone "salesmen" I hate to say it by flat out Lying or not very well informed about the product he is selling. I saw on the Hughes site it said I should be between 1.5 -3MB which it was showing data from HULU and the rest leading one to believe at the "standard" def I would still be able to stream. I see on here some are saying less then 1MB is in policy.
In my case I accept the fact Hughes has me bent over the table and I take what I get. It does beat the **bleep** out of dialup which I did for 8 years here. I just upgraded to the Gen 5 which as long as I dont' go backwards compared to the Gen 4 I figure I am doing good as the same 10GB plan is costing $10 less a month. I just really wish the phone reps and Hughes web site would be Honest.
When you have exhausted your data, your speeds will throttle back to as low as 1Mbps or lower during peak congestion hours.
With that said, I personally have found that if no one else is doing anything, at all, even loading another web-site, you can stream in SD just fine once you have exhausted your data. The question now is whether your beam and gateway is more, or less congested than mine.
Hi. Is there an app similar to glasswire for apple products?
True. But, Apples have traditionally been used by more in the line of artistic and linguistic development (think, 'hippies'), not as much business-related nor technological development. This, despite being well-designed and extremely user-focused for what was available. It had it's niche.
I tried doing development on a Mac II in the late 80's/early 90's. Any bad code immediately crashed the entire system, requiring a specially affixed reboot button. It wasn't my idea of fun, but it would give you an idea of why the software had to be critically well-designed.
They also used to be very 'closed' in as far as what applications they would allow to be run on them with very few 3rd party vendors. This only changed (slightly) when they became FreeBSD-based with a Cocoa interface and a Darwin kernel on Intel processors (vice in-house on Motorola) and there became more of a variety of vendors able to develop on them.
Today you're able to cross-pollenate most command-line Linux-based apps (in fact I go back and forth in the user terminal sometimes, just like it's Fedora), as well as some with an X or early Gnome Toolkit interface.
