You need to make the change on the wbr-1310 router by setting a WPA2 passphrase. Once complete you will then need to go to your machines and reconnect to the nextwork. During this process it will ask you for the passphrase you set.

Here is the instruction manual you can use to configure your router:

My connection to hughesnet is interrupted and jumps back a forth from on to off


Make sure there is no interruption in the line of sight.

If you are using any kind of a router then bypass it and try and go online.

Make sure all the cables are snugged in properly at the back of the modem as well as at the back of the Computer.

The weather could be another reason for the interrupted connection.

Make sure you are not using any VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection,i.e.,if you access any computer from your computer.


Lastly do this open up a browser page (Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox atc.) and type in the address bar on top and hit enter.You will view the Hughesnet System control center page.If not go to Lastly

Click on the Small Man Icon next to "what do these control means?" option.You will be redirected to the advanced configuration and the statistics page.

On the left panel you will see "Diagnostics"-- "Hourly" after clicking on hourly make sure there are no Red X specially against "cabling antenna pointing or uplink or downlink.If you don't see the RedX mark call the Hughesnet Customer care...otherwise


I am sorry about this but it's time for you to upgrade because even the Hughesnet Technical Support will not provide you with any support as the modem that you are using right now is way too old and is not available in the market anymore otherwise you could get it replaced.

Please contact the sales department on 888-667-5544 or visit this link Hughesnet Sales

Good Luck.

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 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!

Cannot find wireless network on Secondary computer

Try this, unplug the power from your modem, wait 25 seconds and plug it back in. Unplug the power cord from your router and wait 10 seconds.. plug it back in. Wait for the Wan/Ready/Internet light on your modem to stop flashing or go to its default position. Reboot your 2ndary computer. Try the internet again. If this does not help please post again and we will dig deeper! Good Luck!

No wireless connection

You need to have an Internet Service Provider. You connect the router to a modem from the cable Service Provider or through the phone line for BT. Then you can connect wired or wirelessly to internet through the router.

If you describe your set up in detail and tell me the Internet Service Provider I may be able to help more....
