How to Speed Up My HughesNet


HughesNet is the third-largest North American satellite Internet provider. The products and services provided by HughesNet are competitive with comparable services and products in speed, activation and installation costs. It is one of the top three satellite Internet providers in the United States. However, as with any Internet service, there are always times of day and computer processes that can slow transfer speed. Speed up your HughesNet connection by verifying computer and satellite settings and making adjustments where necessary to increase efficiency and transfer speed.

  • Install the newest version of HughesNet software and the associated service pack. If your HughesNet software hasn't been updated with the latest service pack, your service could slow significantly and eventually stop working.

  • Verify and configure your browser's proxy settings. The procedure for this varies depending on the browser you use. After configuring the proxy settings, clear the browser's cache and adjust the size to 70 MB. If your browser saves more than 70 MB worth of material, this may lead to slower browsing.

  • Cycle your Hughes adapter by disconnecting the power for 60 seconds and then re-starting it. It's a good idea to cycle the system after installing any updates to give the system a chance to upload new information.

  • Ensure your system is not functioning in satellite bypass mode. Select the "DW" icon in the system tray, then select "Turbo Internet Properties." The dialog box will open. Select "Turbo Internet Properties" and open the "Turbo Internet Properties" dialog box. Select the "Return Channel Tab" and un-select "Satellite Bypass Mode" if it has been selected.
