Direcway is now Hughes.net

by tuaz / April 11, 2006 4:44 AM PDT

Direcway changed it name but not it policies. They gave me a password to get me transferred to new site. I got it ok set up my mail and user home page. When I returned I was locked out. I have received two more p/w neigher of which work. I've got til the 22nd of April then the Direcway site goes down. Tey do not answer my email. By now they probably figure I'm a crank so email is no longer answered. This is just the last of many problems I've had over the past year. No EZ for me to change as I do not have a phone line. I use DirecTV and a cell. Thanks for letting me vent.

direcway to hughes.net is a nightmare
by jrorjhor / April 18, 2006 1:12 PM PDT

I too went through the supposedly 2 step transition to hughes.net from direcway. The process turned out to be 9 steps and I still cannot "reply" to email, attach addresses from my contacts list or find my "groups" as defined in direcway--and promised they would all transfer easily?!!!! I cannot get internet access any other way where I live due to distance from the road, mountains and every other excuse in the world otherwise I would be soooo gooonnnneee.

FINALLY GOT DIRECWAY TO HUGHES TO RECOGNIZE USER NAME AND PW
by TechNerd13 / April 20, 2006 9:50 AM PDT

Gee, what a mess migrating from Direcway to Hughes. After carefully following all their directions, still couldn't get Hughes.net to recognize my username and pw for receiving email. I finally figured out the problem. When setting up the email account in Outlook, unlike Direcway, you need to use your full user name with Hughes.net at the end under the LOGIN INFORMATION. They didn't explain the difference in any of their email stuff. There is no excuse for their lack of customer service or response to emails from people having problems. I sent 5 emails and got no response. If I didn't live on an island with no other choice, I'd change companies in a heartbeat!

___________________________________________________________________________________________
4/21/06 9524925 called tech to see why intenet was not working at all spent hours on hold (wathed apollo 13 while waiting) finally at like 1:00 am got a tech on the phone, who helped my with issue realized that billing had moved me to another satelite which made it impossible for me to get service and the system could not be set up manually.

4/22/06 I called back later after sleeping on the issue and talked to Charlie who worked with me in an advanced settings area of the modem to manually commision the system. system continued to change back to it's original settings would not allow me to change the lat and long settings or any of the other settings we could not get it to commission, Charlie finally said they would send someone out.

4/23/06 I continued to work with the settings charlie had given me and eventually got the system to change the settings called back to tech and got Charlie again who was then able to get it to work. Technician never came to house.

previous calls. I had been told by an advance tech rep to keep a diary of my calls I didn't think he was serious. I figured after the first issue that I would not have to call again. I was wrong system is a total joke.

____________________________________________________________________________________________
7/30/06
I am having major issues with this system. I am constantly having to reset the modem, constantly having to reset my computer. Often times when browsing from site to site I get error messages. At first I thought that this was a broken path between me and the web site I was trying to get to, or the web site was down. But I have been dealing with this now for so long that I know it is not a bad web site and most definately is not a bad path. This is with sites like Google.com and Ebay.com and Usbank.com I have called in about this several times, and nothing has been done to fix the problem. From day one I have had nothing with problems with your company. On day one you were supposed to upgrade my service, and instead put me on a different sattelite for three days no service, no credit offered and tech was no help I ended up fixing the issue my self, after 6 hours on the phone with tech. Then these Page cannot be displayed errors started, and I called in was told to change proxy settings, issue not resolved, called in again was told to change proxy settings, issue not resolved, called in again tech got defensive was told to take all proxy settings out still having issues. Either fix it or give my my money back and let me out of contract!!!

Called this department back.

I am disputing the contract due to lack of service. Said she was going to contact the technician that had called me to work on the issue and placed me back on hold. Supposed to have a"higher level" tech call me on 8/10/07 7:00am Mountain time. Told me I need to contact retention for info on contract. was actually transfered to billing and was told that all my time and trouble did not warrant a credit on the account. They tried to transfer me to retention again but my phone dropped the call. Call lasted 1:29:58 before the call dropped.

technical su[pport? they have some?
by roganlors / December 4, 2006 1:04 AM PST
http://customercare.myhughesnet.com/phone.html indicates 1-866-347-3292 as technical support help line.

this is the only number given to customers both residential and commercial.

1-866-347-3292 option 3 gets a customer in contact with an outsourced call center where all "technicians" have heavy hindu accent that "check their resources if you have any technical questions"

the chat routine at http://customercare.myhughesnet.com/frm_chat_support.cfm gets customers in contact with the same outsourced call center support team with chats that look like this:

[Dec 1 2006 8:35:45 PM] Welcome to our chat customer support .

Kate(Dec 1 2006 8:40:41 PM): Is it ok if I keep this chat session on hold for two minutes so that I can check resources?
william(Dec 1 2006 8:41:32 PM): sure i understand that this is for residential tier1 support...but i was never given a business support telephone #
william(Dec 1 2006 8:46:09 PM): oh and here is a link to how my domain is pointing from the registrar http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/lookup.ch?name=hollygarth.net&type=ALL

william(Dec 1 2006 9:00:37 PM): bye

For any hughes.net employees this is case# 10799720, 10801081, and 10803330

Getting in contact with anyone at Hughes.net to perform any high level technical support is virtually impossible and requires the tenacity of a pit bull at the thoat of it's prey. when one does get in contact with this higher level technical support the only support that they can give you is with the hardware that you purchased for $600-$1000 US.

The "Level 3" technician I finally got in contact with informed me that the network topology used by satellites was a static "image" of current DNS entries and changing the DNS entries for static ip addresses was impossible and could not be performed.

For business application in real world enviornments this is like trying to have a land war in asia...

tecnical support from hughes.net....don't bother there is NONE worth your time.

for business appliction Spend the extra cash and have the cable company or telephone company perform a buildout to your location.

you will be glad and much happier with your connection in the end

Hughes Problem
by gpmyers / January 30, 2008 7:27 AM PST

I live in a rural area that is not serviced by DSL or cable. Hughes net satellite is my only option. The speed fluctuates wildly. The system degrades every day at 11 Am. I have spent hours and hours with their technical support. The tell me that the problem is congestion, but they can fix it. Someone from technical calls once a week to tell me that their team of engineers is working on it.

I would appreciate input from fellow Hughes net customers. I may go back to dial up or move.Oh yes, the rebate. I have been waiting on that for two months. I am wondering if anybody ever receives the Hughes rebate?

WORST CONNECTION SERVICE & TECHNICAL SUPPORT EVER!
by Explorer555 / March 9, 2008 9:57 AM PDT
In reply to: Hughes Problem

I can relate to all the previous post, because I too have been there and experienced those problems with technical support. It's horrible! If you are having trouble getting connected and you call technical support, you first have to wade through their very long spill of how to sign on and get help online. They should add the following instead: If you can connect online,press 1, if you can't press 2. HINT: HINT: HELLO...????
They do not speak English very well. Most always I have to ask 4 or 5 times for them to repeat before I can understand one sentence! Therefore, I'm always on the phone an hour or longer. Then it doesn't fix it and I have to call back and give all the same info again, etc. Hughes is using cheap help at the expense of our time and frustration. They do NOT pro-rate your bill and give credit for time not being able to get connected...even though it last for days. Their charges are outrageous to begin with! They take advantage of the ones who live in rural areas and have no other choice. But thank God due to some new laws, they will be getting some hard competition very soon.....and I'll be GONE! Get this....I called them because my modem 7000S only has 3 of the 5 lights on, and I can't connect(I'm still under warranty)After useless hours on phone with tech, they say we will send a tech out to your house, and someone will call you in a day or two to set up an appointment. Day two they call to say it will be 7 more days before they can be there. So I call and signup for the $5.95 monthly repair service that promises to be there within 1 or 2 days of you reporting a problem. Then I asked when they will be there to fix it. He says...Someone will call you in 2 to 3 days to set up an appointment. (Yeah right, it takes 3 days to get appointment each time I need to use my quick 2 day service repair I'm paying for! It's a rip-off!) My opinion: Hughes should have to pay us to put up with their lousey technical service....and that's NOT an insult to the tech's, but it is to Hughes for not providing a better tech support service! I reported my problem on last Friday. It is now Sunday and I have no tech appointment yet. I have 4 different case #'s and still no service, yet I'm paying $89 plus tax month to have a connection. I'm on dial-up AOL right now! It's working and only cost $25 month!
My case #'s are: 13573049, 13580943, 13580965, 13581094. If they do not start improving ....and provide service (as I've read I'm not the only one)we ought to get 1 attorney for all of us, get our money back and get out of the contract without having to pay! Seriously!
I was told it would be next Friday before someone would come out. Today is Sunday. This just scratches the surface to all the problems I've had with their service, and I've only been with them about 2-3 months! I didn't tell you about not being able to sign in to my email for two weeks. Thanks for letting me vent. Just know that you are NOT alone in having HUGE problems with Hughes.

Hughes Net Options
by jsandreas / November 4, 2008 6:10 AM PST

I've been reading the problems with hughes net. There is another option of getting Broadband access to rural residence if cable or DSL is not an option. Its called a leased line. You can get a least data line for about 100/mo. These are also called Partial T1 lines, and they do service rural areas. The best part of a leased T1 line is that your connection is guranteed with high uptime.

Also as another option is a wireless to cellular card. If you can get data at your home then this might be the best option. Verizon / ATT have the best coverage for rural areas. Contact them for availability
