As a HughesNet customer, I frequent the HughesNet community support forums. There are some questions that I see asked very often there and elsewhere. Since the community forum has no sticky posts and the official knowledge base is woefully out of date, I compiled my own for prospective and current HughesNet GEN4 users.
HughesNet GEN4 Networking FAQ: Describes the HughesNet GEN4 HT1000 modem’s peculiar quirks and offers tips on integrating it into a home or small business network.
HughesNet GEN4 General FAQ: Anything else I could think of related to the GEN4 system.
They are a constant work-in-progress. HughesNet has released an HT1100 modem recently, but without getting my hands on one, I don’t know if it acts the same as the HT1000. If anyone has one of these modems and can verify or rebut a question in the FAQs, please get in touch with me!
