Question about Computers & Internet
Tried rotating the router 90degrees and checking connections and resetting and powering it down.
1. Many wireless routers are using the same wireless channel. Many manufacturers choose channel 6 as the default. Change to another channel. 2. Analogue video senders used to send audio and video to other TVs in the home. 3. Microwave ovens emit interference in the 2.4GHz band. 4. Wireless speakers and console controllers can cause interference with the wireless router. 5. Bluetooth devices, newer Bluetooth devices can jump to different frequencies if there is a connection problem. 6. Power cables located near the wireless router can cause dropouts and speed reduction. 7. Fish tanks will cause massive Wi-Fi shadow on the other side of the tank from the wireless router. 8. Depending upon the location of large mirrors will reflect wireless signal away your computer. 9. Building materials will block wireless signals such as plasterboards with metal foil, reinforced concrete walls and floors. Also objects near the wireless router such as metal filing cabinets and other electrical appliances. 10. Blinking Christmas lights can reduce Wi-Fi performance by 25% when it is close to the wireless router.

SOURCE: No access to the internet
When you say you did a reset on the router, did you unplug it and plug it back in after a while, or did you do a reset to factory settings?
If you have access to the settings of your router, check to make sure the firewall in your router is not set to block all connections. Also, make sure your IP filters are not enabled. This could cause ANY computer connected to this router to not be allowed an internet connection. Depending on where and when you bough this router, it might have "ZoneAlarm" settings as well. Unless you have a full version of ZoneAlarm (not the free version), make sure ZoneAlarm Pro is disabled in the router.
Please keep us posted.

Try turning the router 90 degrees, and measure the strength.
Turn it another 90 degrees, and measure again.
Move to a house with wood cross-beams, instead of metal cross-beams inside the first-floor ceiling.
Rotate the upstairs computer 90 degrees, and measure again.
Buy a "Wireless N" router, for greater signal strength.

I would contact your hughes net, that is a satelite provider. That is a total different system, than dsl or cable. Hughes net should be able to walk you through the setup.
