Hi all,

This keeps recurring (not often) when i see this yellow exclamation point i am unable to connect to the DNS router to convert Host name to IP and IP to host name. When i open a browser in this state It says DNS LOOK UP error but i can ping the my ap point and the router and Google.

My ISP is on a NAT Protocol and I cant do nothing to fix it the only way to fix it is to Fix the errors on the Terminal (192.168.0.1) Satellite box. So I was wondering if anyone here has the same ISP. I was probably thinking about another dns server as a secondary (but I am afraid that if i put another dns sever in it will screw the with the satellite)

ISP: Hughesnet Systems
Router: WRT54G ver 6 firmware 1.2.8
Wireless and Wired netwrok

Computeer A: Wired (windows xp service pack 2) I know it';s outdated and virus remove It needs a complete wipe but I cant touch it
Computer B: Wirless Windows 7 Pro 64 bit updated fully
Laptop A Windows 7 Pro 32-bit (unused)
Laptop B Windows vista 32 bit updated fully

The problem is occurring on Computer B. Is it my Network or my ugly ISP?

Has been a long time since I had Sat. Internet.

What Hughes system are you running? Back when I had it, it was self hosted. Meaning there was software installed on your PC besides having both TX & RX modems. I know now they have gone to a single self contained modem.

BTW. I do not believe 192.168.0.1 is accessing the Sat. box. I believe that is your WRT54G. I think anymore you have to either FTP or Telnet into the newer Sat. modem.

IMO. It is a Hughes problem you are experiencing.

HNS700S.

The newer version is HNS9000 which you have to telnet into the box. The 192.168.0.1 is a web version of my modem

192.168.0.1 sends the NAT information to my Router and DNS sever information.

This happen this morning I turn it on It show up I restarted my computer and it was still there Then i enter my modem and it had a Web Acceleration(N) issue so i send a commend to fix the problem and after a second it recieves the information

Yes I know it may be a hughesnet problem but when i called (i not going to) they blamed it on the client not the Network Operation Center and I think they will required me to Update to HNS9000 with a huge price tag with it.

I see not much has changed since I was using them. They pass the buck or try to sell you a higher priced service.

There is a good site called Hughesnet Uncensored. Not free but a single small payment get`s you a liftime membership. I have been a member there for many years. Just no longer really need there service since moving and switching to DSL.

I install hughesnet and I will be the first to tell you that there service sucks. It might be the satellite that you are on. A lot of the times they over subscribe the satellite causing the internet connection to be slow.

It could be the alignment if you are not connected with a great signal and your cross poll is not right then then you will not be able to stay connected.

Do you know what satellite that you are on? If it is satmex5 its oversubscribed.

If you go to the 193.168.0.1 ip on your browser it will tell you in the system tab.

The other thing that you can do is download the dns benchmark at grc.com and run it. It will tell you the best dns based upon your location. But be aware that a cached server is better as you have a higher latency then most other isp connections.
