Thanks!! My devices have not come online. If you're able to see diagnostics, then the router is probably online, which indicates it's not a solar system power issue. Probably a problem with the devices. We'll just have to make a trip to figure it out! Many thanks for your help!!

I've been looking at postings from people who live 3-4 hours away from their vacation homes. This is exactly my own situation. We use hughestnet with wyze to operate our home monitoring solution, which enables us to monitor the home realtime year round. (When we are at the house, we use a cellular wifi solution, which is a lot faster than Hughestnet at our location. So the main purpose we use Hughesnet is for this remote monitoring). Occasionally due to bad weather or some other issues, internet goes down. Hughesnet Support currently requires customers to drive to their home and be onsite to diagnose the issue. When it's a case of the antenna being misaligned, that's okay. But frequently a simple reboot of the router will fix the problem. The fact that customers cannot reboot their modems remotely is a real problem for customers like us, who live 3-4 hours away from our homes. With the increasing number of wifi enabled remote devices, this problem will only increase for Hughesnet customers in the future. Sat-com providers should provide a way for customers to be able to remotely reboot their own routers. From the forums I can see that Techs have occasionally done this for customers, so it should simply be a matter of making this facility available via a customers account.
