Are they(hughes) Screwing with me?

Recommended Posts

:angry5:

I had slow and then no browsing today, but it was after i removed the powercord and cables to move the modem and blow out some dust. (DW6000)

I figured i jacked something up myself, but i wiggled and messed with everything for 2 hours now and decided to use a dial up account to contact hughesnet..

I got on the chat support and told them I had a problem... verified my info and I asked if there was a problem at the NOC today?

He asked if i was having slow browsing.. I told him I had no browsing at all..

Well he checked and then explained that they had technicians working on the transponder i was on and they hoped to have it fixed later today, well i curiously ran and logged on to the other pc in the house went to testmy.net and ran a test..

Curiously enough the connection worked fine. It also ran at exactly 1000 on the 2992kb test.

I ran back over here and told him i would wait out the outcome and hoped that they would fix it soon.

I logged off of the dial up and clicked back on... Browsing is snappier and obviously faster than it has been.

My best tests as of lately had been 865-900 and browsing lacked that snappy feel it originally had.

I am exactly 1 month out of the 15 month contract.

Are they just jacking with my connection just  to see what i will tolerate?

Ive hit the FAP several times lately but I know it wasnt related to that since i hadnt been here all day.

Just wondering if anyone else had problems or am i being targeted for some reason?

chrism101 try the phone next time, 1-866-825-4950

And maybe try this TCP Optimizer instead of the cablenut.

http://www.testmy.net/forum/t-1703

Use the attachment Over the pic it has helped some on Dway.

Follow the instructions carefully.

And try testing directly with the 2992 file test.

Here is mine on the 6000.
