Connect your computer to the HughesNet modem

Your HughesNet professional installer will connect up to two devices to your Wi-Fi modem at no extra cost. If you would like to connect more devices to your network, you can use the Ethernet cable (included with your Wi-Fi modem) to directly connect your computer to the system, or you can connect wirelessly. Locate your network’s information label on your Wi-Fi modem and find the corresponding network listing in your device’s Wi-Fi/Internet settings. Next, enter the included network password and start enjoying your HughesNet Internet!

To easily locate your network in the future, use the HughesNet app to rename the connection. You can also use the app to change your password and easily invite visitors to join your network.

Reset your modem

If you think your connection is not functioning properly, resetting your modem may help. To do this, unplug the modem’s power cord from the wall (not from the modem) and wait ten seconds. When you plug the cord back in, check your modem to ensure that all of the device’s LED lights are illuminated and solid—not flashing. Some modem models also have reset buttons. If your modem has a reset button (located on the back or base of the device), you can also press and hold this button down until the lights turn off and come back on. Because the button is very small, you may want to use a toothpick or ballpoint pen to help hold it down.

Be sure to keep your modem in an upright position away from walls to allow it to get proper air flow. If your connectivity issues persist, visit the HughesNet support center for assistance.
