I said the same thing to my wife, Hughesnet $75 a month, Dial up $9 a month, and dial up would be more reliable.... lol

The said thing is, I don't care, I am not going to talk to India to go around in circles and listen to there crap!

LMAO...... it got a little faster since, they are over selling these birds to the point of a standstill.

When was the last time you had your dish realigned? Back in the day when i was direcway i would know if i was fap'd. They didnt just slow my connection down, but made it to a grinding halt. I pretty much didnt have a connection for  3-4 hours :tickedoff: It really sucked when I had to do windows updates :crybaby2:

Sparky,

Some of us here had Hughes when it used 2 modems and there was many things to learn to make it run at top speed. The newer systems are no different. I used the 2-way when it came out and for 6 years was pretty much consistent at a 1.2meg average. I believe we all found running the least amount of programs and using tweaks along with a near perfectly aligned (sighted in) system got the maximum results.

I have an old PC here that ran 24/7 as my server with Hughes software to run the 2 modems and it's still running and on Sprint pulls good download speeds. If you can tell us about your PC and you satellite stats we may be able to give you some solutions for better speeds.

Not bad but still a little slower then normal.

What bird are you one Sparky?
Unsure, I used to know but can't remember, damn old age....

When was the last time you had your dish realigned?
I did it myself this past summer, I was unable to get a stronger signal strength higher then 70.

One thing I did notice, when I was adjusting the dish every time I put my hands on the back of the dish the signal would go up by around +10, I was thinking about going up with some aluminum foil and contact adhesive spray fixing it to the rear of the dish, I still may try this when it warms up just to see if it will help any.

Have any of you tried this yet?

If you are using the SmarTest that might be part of it  For best results try this.

http://www.testmy.net/dl-3072

It is the closest to the 2992 test they used to have, and it gave the best results for speed on Hughes.

I agree smart test never worked well with hughes, and still doesnt with my wireless connection  :uglystupid2:

Not too bad this morning.

Sparky, have you looked into a wireless/cell carrier like Sprint / AT&T, etc?

I believe TMN member granpa switched to Sprint EVDO as soon as they upgraded his area.

I use Sprint EVDO for work and it is for the most part reliable, although I am mobile most of the time and definitely find dead spots.

Just a thought.

edit: here's a couple examples

I am likewise  the same as to changing from Hughes to Sprint. Its been great. Any wireless beats Hughes.  :smitten: NO super high speed, but definately does the job. And no FAP. By the way, your not Fapped are you?

Its very easy to get FAP on hughes well when you connection is working correctly. Hell tommie I bet you felt you were on high speed when you switch from hughes to sprint.  :haha:
