Thanks for the answers. Not exactly what I was hoping for... After reviewing the links, it seems like remote access is really only possible if IPv6 is used throughout. One message in the link talked about putting an RPi in the system to doing the IPv6 DDNS work so I guess that is an option. One thing that isn't clear is the willingness of HN to assign static IPs to business customers. Some posters claimed that HN was only assigning static IP addresses for legacy customers. I will be conducting business from this site and will need to VPN into the corp system. Does anyone know for sure that HN will (or will not) assign static IP for business customers?

Hey all, Looking for some help before I get to far in resetting my current home internet to work with Hughes. Appreciate any help. Background: Got a Gen 5 (HT2000W router) system put in at our cabin yesterday to replace our old CenturyLink ADSL. We aren't at this location full time (cabin) and we have things like: remote thermostats (multiple brands) security and control (Smartthings) smart TVs (Samsung) security cameras (vintage 2017) AT&T pico-cellApple Homekit based devices DynDNS.com based remote access to our Linux boxes Also, we need multiple WAPs (one per floor) to get good coverage. All the current WAPs are <4 years old. Only the cameras required port forwarding to work remotely. Goals: 1) Get internet connection throughout the house via WiFi (there is ethernet to each floor) 2) Get all these devices talking to the outside world again 3) Get remote unix access back (ssh snowrodeo@Mycabin.mydomain.com) First attempt at the simplest solution (reuse all equipement and connections): I took my existing modem/route (Netgear) off ADSL and plugged the HT2000W into its WAN port. It got a valid IPv4 address, but nothing it give DCHP to was able to see the internet. I stopped there due time constraints Questions: 1) Should I just blanket upgrade all my WAPs? Any suggestions for devices that work cleanly with Hughes? 2) Should I switch my home system to IPv6? 3) Anything special I need to make the various remote access devices work again? 4) The security cameras remote access had me point to a port on my dyndns address (example Mycabin.mydomain.com:60021). From the little I have studied on this system, it seems like getting dyndns to work is hard and/or not possible. Anyone get this working? 5) What else should I be concerned about? Thanks, -Snowrodeo
