HughesNet Question!


Recommended Posts

Under the system control center and under reception info, you can find the current modcod. My question is, is there any way you can change the current modcod? I noticed the other day that it was at 8-psk 9/10 and my internet was flying, now its at 8-psk 5/6 and the internet is going slow.

Thanks for your time,

I don't think you can actually control your modcod or rate code.  The modem (hn7000s dvb-s2 enabled) adjusts these based on weather conditions to ensure the best signal quality, both send and receive.  

You might be able to temporarily change your rate code by force ranging, but the modem will just adjust it again if it thinks it needs to.

Not sure if force ranging affects the modcod at all since this is your receive rate.  But even if it does, again I don't think you can keep the modem from adjusting it.

I believe 9/10 is the best you can get.  It's never seemed to help me though.
