We have had a Verizon network extender for 3 years. It worked GREAT with Exede satellite internet. A few weeks ago Exede stopped working overall very well, so we chose to change to HughesNet satellite. We plug in the extender, all blue lights come on, our Verizon phones get a good signal, internet and texting works great on our phones, but when we try to call out, it is very broken and robotic and people on the other end can't hear us very well. I stopped in the Verizon store a couple days ago and he said that I needed to call HughesNet and have them open the ports so it would talk to the extender. Then I called HughesNet and they said they need to ports on the Verizon extender open. I found port codes online and called HughesNet back and they said they can't do anything with it. Super frustrating with all the mixed information back and forth. Is the network extender compatible with HughesNet?
