For months I have been experiencing the same issues you have mentioned. When I first switched from Gen4 to Gen5 the speed was greatly improved but now it has slowed to a crawl. I was also told to use myinternet.net for the speed test and of course it stated 33.6 Mbps but when I used the Hughesnet speed test I was getting .76 Mbps DOWNLOAD which was less than the 2.36 Mbps UPLOAD speed. I requested a tech to check my home installation and was told it would cost me. To say I'm completely frustrated is putting it mildly. What am I paying for? I have tweaked both of my pc's the best way I could and still no results (driver updates, etc). I even went to PCmatic to see if I could improve the performance to no avail. Both pc's are not ancient to say the least. I even bought my wife a new Dell and still the performance curse still follow us. Today my case was finally sent to the next level of support (up to 5 days to respond). I can hardly wait!

I have struggled with different products to get snow off the Satellite dishes with no success. Sprays, heating elements when near an electrical source, cooking sprays, etc etc. For Christmas I received a snow visor specifically for sat dishes. Haven't tried it yet with snow but it has to be better than what I've been using. For you fellow sufferers who have to walk to the dish (or climb ladders) every hour to clean off the dish to see Judge Judy here is the link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Satellite-Dish-Snow-Visor-TM-for-Oval-Antennas-/270695744151?hash=item3f06b9...
