Gabe, Thanks for the advice but the results you are seeing are with my AV turned off. I already thought of that, but it was a good call. I see you still have the ability to think clearly. I've been using HughesNet for 13 horrific years. In the late 1980s I ran a 'Bulletin board' then used dial-up, cable and finally FiOS. We've talked many times in the distant past. You know me under a different name. I just spent a lot of time thinking about the conversation I had last night with the CS agent that actually took the time to do her job and look at my system and make some suggestions that made sense. There are a few differences with Gen V from Gen IV. I've made a few changes in the modem and during peak time on a Saturday evening when I was getting 1.8 DL and .9 UL I am now getting 24+ DL & 3+ UL. I won't say what I did because last time I told people how to get better numbers and faster service I got booted from the system. If I divide the results of testmy.net by 100 it matches my results from Speedtest every time. I will say you can change your Quality of Service, if you know what I mean. For whatever reason HughesNet doesn't want us to know about this solution or the engineers would have sent me to it when we talked. Fortunately the last agent I spoke with didn't mistake me for a mushroom. BTW, for those unfamiliar with the ideology of treating someone like a mushroom, that's when you keep them in the dark and feed them BS.
