To help connect the PC to the HN9000 directly and try to establish the Default Gateway IP Address using the commands below:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Please post the info from this command both directly attached to the cable modem and again when attached via the DI-624 router?

Connect the HN9000 to the WAN port of the DI-624. Connect your PC with an ethernet cable to any one of ports 1 to 4.

Download the Product Manual at

Page 12 of the Product Manual describes how to access the configuration but I think you already know?

Page 14 describes selecting Dynamic IP Addressing which works for most Cable Modems. This should just assign the router appropriate addressing and you should test internet connection with your PC in ports 1 to 4?

Page 15 describes Static IP addressing. You would need to check with Hughesnet as your ISP as to whether they have setup your service with Static IP addressing?

Finally on page 18 ensure you have DHCP enabled on the router and assign an IP address range like suggested to

In LAN setup the router should already be assigned IP address and subnet mask

With all of this setup and config saved it should connect to the internet ok from ports 1 to 4.

Once you have it working then try setting up wireless on the DI-624 but try withb wires first to make sure internet connects.

To be clear try from DI-624 manual Page 14, 17 and 18 as default way to get this working. Only worry about Static IP on page 17 and asking Hughenet if this first way dfoes not work.
