    I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 with Win7 and cannot connect to the internet via high speed modem LAN cable. Internet works on my other computer using the same LAN connection, but it is running XP. I


    So is your Modem from a phone company like AT&T? It sounds like it is because phone companies use what is called PPOE which is where the modem is configured with a userid and password to get out to the internet.

    Cable providers use DHCP and don't require a userid and password.

    If your other computer works using the network cable but your toshiba won't work using the same network cable, I think the phone company has configured your modem to only look at and accept your other computer. You can tell the modem to use specific MAC addresses which are unique to every device that attaches to the internet. You want your modem set up to use a range of addresses, not a specific one.

    Im having problems playing online games with my ps3 i can get online but cant play games. is it because i have hughesnet or is there something i can do?


    A lot of people have problems playing online games with satellite internet. The problem is that while your download speed is usually okay, the upload speed to the satellite is too low and the latency (the time between when your computer sends a message and the satellite relays it to the other party) is way too high.

    Unfortunately, you probably will not be able to play any kind of PS3 games online via HughesNet. Computer browser-based games would likely be okay, but your latency will be too high to connect to any PS3 game servers.

    Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

    I upgrade to 200 pro with 400mb but my hughes net meter to be the same as before. my downlowable time remain the same.


    Speeds (uploading and downloading) may vary based on several factors such equipment, line-of-sight (dish to satellite), your Internet package, other users, and FAIR USAGE POLICY. Have pasted the fine details below.

    *Speeds
    Speed comparison based on 53 Kbps dialup. Actual speeds may vary. Uninterrupted use of service and speeds are not guaranteed. Usage is subject to the Fair Access Policy. Listed speeds are available only through Hughes' SpaceWay satellite. Most subscribers will have access to the listed speeds.

    The Power 200 service plan is only available through the new HughesNet satellite. Approximately 1% will not be able to receive the Power 200 plan as a result of trees or other obstacles that block the signal from the satellite to the home.

    Actual upload speed will normally be lower than speeds indicated during peak hours. Download speeds may also be temporarily slowed in cases when patterns of system usage exceed the download threshold for an extended period of time. See the HughesNet Fair Access Policy for more information.

    **Download Threshold
    Each plan is subject to a daily download threshold as follows: Basic 200 MB, Power 150 300 MB, Power 200 400 MB. 50 MB per day additional Download Allowance can be added to any plan for just $10 per month.

    +Equipment
    Provided HughesNet equipment may be new or refurbished. Any refurbished equipment will have the same warranty as new equipment. In the event that you elect the purchase option, and the equipment installed at your location is refurbished, we will provide you with a $25 credit on your first Service invoice.

    The speed difference between their packages is only 50Kbs. May be difficult to read. May wish to use third party Internet speed rater - www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

    I am hooked to hughes high speed when go on line and go to modern warfare 2 and join the game my man wants freeze up for about split second all through the game it takes about 4 seconds to even to reload .


    Hughesnet isn't the greatest for attempting to play online. Even though it is better than dial up, it isn't a consistent speed, and you will run into lag and timeout issues along with the occasional freeze.

    I am using hughesnet dish high speed internet running windows vista poor sound and delay with magicjack any help thanks. The phone service from the magic jack recieved sounds like poor connection when...


    Actually with hughesnet its a common issue as it is satellite based service & gives high latency. What you can try is to contact your phone support & ask them if static ip address is going to give any help, as when you have dynamic ip address, your ports changes leading to more latency.

    How to make the toshiba satellite a15-129 pc notebook wireless?


    The first thing that you need tohave in order to get wireless internet is a wireless networking adapter.If you own a newer laptop, this is probably inside your computer as we speak.
    If you don't own a wireless carddon't panic.
    You can easily purchase oneseparately. They are relatively inexpensive. The best place to purchase a wirelesscard is eBay (opens new window).
    There are two important thing thingsto look for in your wireless card.
    1.Make sure it is a 802.11g card. They have 802.11b, 802.11a, and several others.Having an 802.11g will enable you to connect at much faster speeds and fromfarther away.
    2.Purchase a wireless card that connects in the PCMCIA slot.
    The next thing you are going to wantto get is high speed internet. It is possible to have wireless internet withdial-up, but it will be so slow it simply isn't worth it.
    In order to have high speedinternet, you are going to need a cableor dsl modem depending on what internet you have. This type of modemwill not be found in your laptop.
    There are many different types andbrands of modems out there. I have had no problems or complaints with the Motorola Surfboard. It's easyto set up and has lasted a long time now.
    Other well known modems are Linksys and Netgear.
    You can get cable/dsl modems muchcheaper on eBay. But make sure that all of the equipment comes in the box.Either order one that says new or contact the seller and ask them if all of thewires and cables are included.
    The next thing on how to set upwireless internet is getting a wirelessrouter (opens new window).
    This is the piece of equipment thatmakes things wireless. You can have high speed internet without a router. Butto be able to connect multiple computers and have your laptop have a wirelessconnection you are going to have to purchase a router.

    Fortunately, routers are gettingcheaper and cheaper by the day now.
    You can certainly find a nice wireless router on eBay forunder $30.
    Similar to the wireless card, makesure you get a router that is 802.11g. This will allow you to connect fasterand from farther away.
    Also, try to look for a routerthat has a connection of at least 54 Mbps. Ifseveral people will be using the internet at one time you may consider gettinga router even faster then that.
    Once you have all of the necessaryequipment, it's time to hook everything up.
    It's hard to explain precisely howto do this because each modem and router may need to be hooked up differently.
    But the main steps on how to set upwireless internet are this...
    1.Hook up wherever your internet is coming from to your modem. Your internetsource will vary depending on whether you have Cable or DSL.
    2.Connect your modem to your router. This is the essential part of makingwireless possible.
    3. Turn on whatever computer you havethat has a wireless card and enjoy your wireless internet experience!

    I have hughesnet on my desktop and am trying to link a satellite L355/S7915 to the internet with a D-Link WBR1310 without using a cable is this possible if so how do i do it


    Make sure the ip address is not the same as the Hughesnet ip address. The ip address for the Hughesnet is 192.168.0.1. If the D-link is the same you must go in and change it. You will also need a wireless card to go into your desktop to make it wireless. Hope this helps!
