HUGHESNET HN9000 SLOWDOWN / HOST CHANGE

Recommended Posts

The HN9000 is slowing down again in the evening.....still at advertised "typical" speeds, but they must be adding more customers than bandwidth available. So again three steps forward two steps back?

I also noticed  they are tweaking with the firmware again, then rolled it back.

with every gas station and dollar store using hughesnet for their sales transactions its no wonder that the home subscribers have issues. I work in the oilfield and there are several drilling contractors and service companies that use directway with cisco or datastorm routers for transferring real time data stream as well as for voice and fax comm.  I would think that hughes sets aside bandwith for their larger enterprise customers and the single household consumer gets what is left over.  Try a  air card and cell booster and let 7-11 deal with directway when they run your credit card for a cold six pack.

Most of the sats on top of businesses say DirecWay.  they dont say Hughesnet (although they are both Hughes)

There are also two domains. direcway and direcpc.  I think the stores run off direcpc.

If you're on Spaceway 3, you're in the direcway.com domain

and by looking at the profile of the sat, looks like older KU systems.

I might be wrong, but I dont those run off Spaceway 3.

The slowdowns in the evening are dipping to around 500-1000Kbps during peak hours, apparently still migrating as many Ku band and new customers to the Ka band as possible? Weather seems to not affect the performance for me unless its a severe cloud burst, currently snow squall with snow in on dish........good signal and good speed:

Very nice, we used to dream of steady speeds like that. If just most of the day would have been good.
