I just had HughesNet 4g installed. I have a HT1000 modem also. Is this a wireless router also? And if not, what would be the best router to get for this situation?

Thanks for your help....

Stephen the HT1000 is not a wireless router. The internal ip address for the HT 1000 is or
I have a netgear router for my home network its an older n600 model. I can say I've had no problems with the netgear product. Let me remind you that you need to get a router that uses the ip address range of 192.168.1.__ so you don't run into conflicts with the HT1000. I know netgear uses the .1 and not .0
hope this helps

netgear works well with HT1000. you'll need to start by hard wiring your device(pc,tab,...) with the hughes modem and the netgear wireless router. Does your tab have an ethernet connection ?

John, it is not a big secret as to how to get wireless in your home using HughesNet. Post back here with the Brand of your wireless router along as any other information that may be helpful. Someone who may be able to help you may ask for more information. If you have called HughesNet customer support, post your case # so the moderators will be able to find your account fast. Do not post any information that will identify your account specifically. This is a community forum and not just a board that only HughesNet has access to.

It is Thanksgiving so there will not be any HughesNet employees responding, most likely. You may however get another customer just like myself to reply to you with a solution. There are some very knowledgeable folks here. Give them a chance to help you out.

We have tried 2 wireless routers and neither worked with the HT 1000. The one I want to use is D-Link DIR-600 Wireless 150 Router. We set it up but it isn't communicating with the HT 1000 device. Any help would be appreciated.

Can you be a little more descriptive ?
Did you check to ensure the routers default LAN IP address was something other than ?

Did you double check that the modem was connected to the routers WAN port and not a LAN port ?

if any of the routers had ever been part of a previous network did you do a "factory reset" before using them with the HT1000 ?

Did you try opening a browser and entering ? Did it take to the modems SCC or elsewhere ?

You did of course create a network with a wired connection before attempting to connect wirelessly ?

Did you install any networking software ?

Did you ensure the D-Link had the latest firmware update installed ?

What operating system were you running on the main computer ?

What if any wireless devices did you try to connect ?

What wireless encryption method did you have enabled and do you know for a fact that the method selected is compatible with your wireless device ?
