The FAP changed in April. You have a set amount of download per day (mine is 425MB). Once you go over, you are downgraded to dial-up speed for 24 hours (and its actually slower than dial-up). If you keep trying to download during that time, you could be downgraded longer than 24 hours. You can check the amount you have downloaded here http://customercare.myhughesnet.com/frm_usage.cfm . The only good news is that from 3:00AM to 6:00AM Eastern, you can download all you want without affecting your daily useage.

There isn't any "setup" for the modem.  The 7000 does it's own thing.  It is "self-hosted".  Regarding the dynamic or static IP; that depends on whether or not you ordered a static IP address when you bought the package.  If not, then it is dynamic (the modem assigns one to you).  So if you run the Hughes LCCU program that sets up your computer, there is nothing else you need to do without getting into that techy bla-bla-bla stuff.  Look at the Hughes usage site mentioned above, and when it says you are NOT under FAP, do a speed test from this site.
