  1. I have a HN7000s modem with the Pro Plus plan. My speeds, however, never get any higher than the speeds on the pro plan. (1mb down and 200kb up). I was just wondering if anyone has gotten the 1.5 mb down speed yet that hughes has been advertising. If you are getting that speed, please let me know what satellite you are on and also what transponder. Thanks. Below is my stellite information: Satellite Transmit Path: Satellite Outroute: Primary Longitude: 127 West Receive Frequency: 1110 MHz Receive Symbol Rate: 30 Msps Receive Polarization: Vertical Transmit Polarization: Horizontal 22KHz Tone: Off Router Address: Transmit Radio Info Transmit Radio Wattage: 2 Watt Software Configuration NAT: Enabled DHCP: Enabled on Lan1 Firewall: Disabled (from NOC) Turbo Page: Enabled Please note: I have a 2 watt BUC but I only have a .74m dish, I upgraded the BUC last month.
  2. Tommie, What do you suggest I do in my situation? As I stated in my previous post, I payed $200 for the new modem specifically to get the pro plus plan, but my speeds are horrible. I also payed the $125 for an installer to re-point my dish. Your response will be appreciated.
  3. Tommie, I cleaned out the browser and I did the speed test you said, here are the results: ::..

  4. Tommie, My signal strength is steady at 69, every once in a while it drops to 68, but it pretty much just stays at 69. The installer I hired I know very well. He spent 6 hrs. trying to re-point my dish, of coarse 2 1/2 of those hours were spent on the phone talking to HughesNet. They had him go back and forth between IA6 and Horizons 8 times. They finally told him that they were having major problems with both satellites, but Horizons was still the better one to go on. I think that Horizons was the better choice also, simply because the speeds on IA6 were below 100 Kbps. So, at this point, I bassically have the option of staying where I am at and hoping they will fix the problems soon, or I can go back to IA8 where I will only be able to get the professional plan and I will have payed $200 for the new modem for nothing. If you or anyone else out there has any other suggestions, your continued responses will be much appreciated.
  5. Tommie, my speeds fluctuate within the ranges I stated every 5-10 minutes. The download and the upload fluctuate like that. Also, thank you for welcoming to the forum Tommie. To everyone else out there, your continued responses will be much appreciated.
  6. I just upgraded to the HN7000s modem because I wanted to get the pro plus plan, but when I got it I found out the satellite I was on (IA8) was not compatible with that plan. So, I got an installer to come to my house and re-point my dish to the Horizons satellite, because at this time only Horizons and IA6 are compatible with the pro plus plan. Ever since the installer pointed the dish to Horizons, my speeds are all over the place. My download goes between 82 and 335 kbps, and my upload is between 190 and 520 kbps. Has anyone else had any success with the Horizons satellite? Has anyone speeds fluctuated this much? Your responses will be much appreciated.
  7. My isolation for my direcway dish stays between 62 and 68, is this normal or should it be higher? My signal strength stays between 70 and 75, is this normal or should it be better? Also, is IA8 the number of a satellite? I ask this because I know G11 is one. I got the IA8 on the e-mail that I received from hughesnet after placing the order for the HN7000s modem yesterday. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.
