Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I use a 1 watt transmitter with hughesnet for my isp my question is what tweaks may I do to speed up my throughput speed, and is there anything special I need to do with the dish itself. I noticed that the white coating on the reciever (dish) has started wearing off is this common or do I need to take action. I also use a hsn7000 modem with this.
The only "real" satellite tweak I could think of is to improve on your antenna system. I was made to understand that your country's FCC imposes certain restrictions and limitations as to how much power and capture area the system could use.
On improving the antenna, rule of thumb; the bigger the better and this apply to the dish. The bigger the capture area (dish diameter) the better the signal quality (not only strength). Of course doing so would probably need the blessings of your ISP. Possible sources of replacement parabolic dish would be discards of cable companies. The next hurdle would be aligning and finding the optimum mounting point of the horns. This photo might give you an idea on size difference.
BTW, the paint (white coating) is more for aesthetic purposes and helps protect it from the elements. Flaking/wearing off should not cause concern in terms of its performance.
Depending on how your modem is connected to the PC (USB or Ethernet), the other tweaks would really be with your PC's hardware settings and your OS configurations.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back whether USB or Ethernet and/or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
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.
