Have you tried calling the 24/7 800 number to see where the refund process is at? You can also wait until the HughesNet reps on this site have a look at your account sometime next week.
Though a weak WiFi signal can cause extra data usage because of dropped packets, it's highly unlikely that it would use so much as to exhaust your data in three days. It's much more likely that something on your network is using it.
You can see the devices that use your network, including those that are currently disconnected, at the following modem page, which may help in narrowing down where your data is going.
Streaming tends to be the biggest data user, but automatic updates and cloud connections on devices can be big data users as well. A connected satellite TV receiver, especially those from DirecTV, can also chew through data.
I see it's your first post here, so welcome to the community! I can certainly help with this, please let me know when you shipped back the booster; I'll see if our warehouse has received it.
Looking forward to hearing back.
