  1. Well I thought I had 30 days to check it out. The person I bought it from and the install tech both told me I had 30 days to decide to keep it. Well a couple days ago I tried to cancel and they said I was under contract. Several phones call, chats and community post later, it is true, as soon as they install your new Gen4 system you are under a 2 year contract. No trial period for upgrading customers. I believe a new customer gets the 30 day trial. I pray the speed doesn't fall any more then it already has. I get some burst of speed on my test but not what they advertise it to be.
  2. Thanks for the replies. I went ahead and had the system installed. I am happy with it so far. I think I was expecting faster speeds then I am getting but it is faster then my HN7000S and the bill will be about 10 bucks cheaper per month. I have 30 days to get out of contract so I will use that time to make my final decision. Right now I see no reason to get rid of it, especially if it picks up any speed.
  3. I hope that is the correct way to describe it. Although I can not find where it was again I saw a map yesterday evening that showed the beams as they cover different part of the U.S.. I was outside that footprint that is the closest to me. HughesNet tells me I can get service in my area. I tell them that my physical address shows to be outside the footprint. This is for the new Gen4 system. I am scheduled to be installed this afternoon. So my question is can I get service at all? If I can what will be the disadvantages? Thanks to anyone who can help me decide if I should go ahead w

  5. Man I feel so lucky. I have had very good luck with my HughesNet system. I am on Horizons1 1410. I have had to get changed before. However for the last few years I have been good to go. Wireless is slowly, very slowly, coming to my area. If it ever gets here I will be changing. I pay $79.99 now per month. Wireless will only be $59.99. The speeds will not be that much slower.

  6. I know that everyone does not have a good setup or experience. I however am just fine with my HughesNet. I am getting above the average for DirecPc users. I have the Pro plan. I feel that the people having problems are not persistent enough with HughesNet. I was and got changed to a different transponder about a year ago. I went through the MD BBB. I feel they were a huge help to me. I got the corporate office on the case. I was changed and have been happy ever since. I would not hesitate to go through the same process again. Is if fast? Heck no. It takes months. However the payoff is well wor

    Webcam address

    I recently got a webcam. I want to post the address of my webcam on a forum that I visit. I want the membership to be able to click on a link and be able to see my webcam when I have it on. My question is, how do I find the address of my webcam so I can post the link? If it is not that simple, please provide me with details on how to do this. Thank you.
  9. I wanted to come back and post my speed today. It was not long after my other post that my speed tweaks took effect. Below is my speed today. This test was taken at 4:11pm EST. So that is peak time. I am getting very good results in my opinion. :::..

  12. My Vista computer recognizes my Logitech headset mic. It shows it in my recording device page. However I can not record any audio using Hypercam2. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the program. This combination has worked in the past. I have not used it in about a month or so. Not sure what has happened in that time frame. If I blow into my mic. I can hear it in the earphones. If I set up my mic. through control panel it works. I just can not record using hypercam2. I can hear windows sound in my earphones as well. What could be the issue? Please suggest some things I can troublesh
  13. Ok thanks. I will have to see what I can do about a re-point.
  14. I have another question. What do you guys think about tweaking Vista? I am talking about a program such as TCP Optimizer or Cablenut even. Do you use them? If now why? If you do, what program do you use? Do you see results?
  15. I did notice when my installer was here he had a instrument to guide him with the install. I don't remember him having a laptop, although he may have. I still have not found my installers info. That is something I must do. I bet I can get a cheaper price if I contact him instead of Hughesnet. Ah, I have just found it. I have a number written in my notes. I believe it to be the installer cell phone. I am trying to call it now........................Had to leave a message. No idea if it is still the same person with that number. I should know soon though. If not I will have to weasel my way
