Unfortunately, page 2 of the manual says:

“Note: Satellite, MiFi or wireless connections are not supported.”

Hughesnet is satellite! If you could run the VoIP test you’d see high jitter and low MOS scores, and likely packet loss further indicating VoIP issues. Speedtest.net is showing +700 ms pings and 0.56 Mbps upstream bandwidth. This is terrible for digital voice communications and explains why no one can hear you.

Tell us about your internet service:

Who is your internet provider?

What brand and model modem?

What brand and model router?

Post a link to the test results from Speedtest.net. Also, post the result from the VoIP test site, when completed click Advanced and View Text to post the results.

Does the situation improve if you bypass the router and connect the Network Extender directly to the modem?
