Hughesnet Provider

 I did some research on Hughesnet alternate modems. The results indicated that the AC1900v was compatible the the Hughesnet service. I would like to get some inside knowledge on the compatibility, if anyone has considered this before.

Re: Hughesnet Provider

AC1900 is not a model #.  Need a model# here.

I recommend contacting the ISP to see if they support users owned modems on there network. They will have this information.

Re: Hughesnet Provider

Hughesnet is a satellite internet provider. You need to use one of their gateways but then you can connect a different router/access point to it. Keep in mind, it isn't going to increase your internet speed but it might provide better coverage. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
