How to Reset My IP on HughesNet

Save

HughesNet provides satellite Internet service to rural customers unable to obtain high-speed Internet any other way. The system works through receipt of a signal sent from the hub to the satellite and down to the homeowner's dish. From there it travels along a coaxial cable that connects to a modem. The modem connects to a computer or a wireless network router, depending on your individual system. HughesNet assigns a non-static IP address to your location that changes from time-to-time. Easily reset the IP address in one of three ways.

  • Log onto the system control center for your modem. Find this by typing in "192.168.0.1" into the address bar. This brings up the system control center. Bookmark the location in your browser for future quick access. Save it with a name you'll remember such as "HughesNet Controls."

  • Double-click the "Problem Troubleshooting" link near the bottom of the screen.

  • Click on the "Start Troubleshooting" radio button to begin the self-troubleshooting program. Wait until it completes the process.

  • View the results on the Troubleshooting Results screen. Click on the link that says, "Click Here to Reset TurboPage." This resets the turbopage feature and reassigns the IP address in the process.

  • Alternatively navigate to the "Network" center on your Windows computer by pressing "Start," selecting "Control Panel" and choosing "Network and Internet." Click on "Network and Sharing Center."

  • Click on "Troubleshoot Problems," select "Home Network," and choose "Internet Connections."

  • Choose "Diagnose this Connection." This option will start a wizard that resets the IP address during the diagnostic process.

Tips & Warnings

  • Another option to is to "Restart" the modem while on the "System Control Center" site. On the main screen, select "Restart" modem and then select "Hardware Boot" or "Software Boot" from the screen that pops up. The hardware boot process takes several minutes, so walk away from the computer for about 20 minutes or so.
