The Hughes Wi-Fi Booster uses the existing wireless signal from your HT2000W modem to repeat the signal in areas of your home where the signal may be poor. With a quick set-up the booster will configure to the same SSID as your modem. No additional passwords to remember.

What is required for the Wi-Fi Booster?
An HT2000W Satellite Modem, internet connection and each Wi-Fi point requires a nearby electrical outlet.

What do the LEDs on my Wi-Fi Booster mean?

Power Booster For Internet

Flashing Purple means the Booster is syncing with your modem
Solid Purple is booting up
Red means ready to sync or out of range
Blue means connected
Solid Amber not in appropriate distance, try moving your Booster closer to your modem

Will I need more than one Booster?

The quantity of Wi-Fi Boosters needed will depend on the size and shape of your home as well as the construction material used in the home.

Should I purchase a Booster from a third-party?

The Hughes Wi-Fi Booster was designed to work seamlessly with the HughesNet HT2000W Satellite Modem. Our booster also includes a 2-year warranty and is supported by Customer Care if you ever experience an issue. There are third-party boosters available but may be more expensive and are not optimized for use with satellite internet.

Will the Wi-Fi Booster work with my existing router?

The Hughes Wi-Fi Booster is designed to work only with the Hughes HT2000W modem. If you currently have an HT1000 or HT1100 modem, and would like to upgrade to the HT2000W, please contact HughesNet Customer Care at 866-347-3292. If you currently use a third-party wireless router with your HT2000W, instead of using the built-in Wi-Fi, the Hughes Wi-Fi Booster will not work.

Does the Hughes Wi-Fi Booster work on both 2.4 and 5-GHz channels?

Out of the box the booster will detect both channels and will automatically detect when you are on the network.

Where should I place my Wi-Fi Booster?

Your unit should be placed half way between your router and area with poor signal strength.

If I change my Wi-Fi SS ID (Name) will I need to reconfigure my Booster?

No, the Booster will automatically sync with your new name and password.

Should I use the WPS button on the Hughes Wi-Fi Booster to pair a device?

No, the WPS button on the back of the Wi-Fi Booster is disabled and cannot be used to pair with the wireless network or a wireless device. To pair a device via WPS, you must use the WPS button on the HT2000W.

I have a new Hughes modem, how can i connect my existing Hughes Wi-Fi Booster?

If you need to reconfigure the booster, use the Factory Reset button found on the back of the unit to erase the Booster current configuration and put it into pairing mode. This allows it to connect with a new modem. Use the tip of a pen or pencil to press and hold the button for 5 seconds.

Where can I find the serial number for the Wi-Fi Booster?

Fix Spotty WiFi Signal Easily with Connectify Hotspot WiFi Booster App

Forget About Dedicated WiFi Booster Devices. Use Your PC Instead.

When you’re looking to boost your WiFi signal, you may take into account a dedicated device for this. Think about it: it will stay in a fixed location and will have to be configured each time you change your network SSID.

A better solution would be a WiFi booster app. In this case, you need much more than just an app that can suggest the WiFi channels you should use or where to place your WiFi router. A true WiFi booster app should also help you increase the WiFi signal strength so you can benefit from fast and reliable Internet.

You need Connectify Hotspot, a WiFi booster app with true WiFi repeater functionalities, that does this with bridging. This means that the devices that will connect to the WiFi bridge will get real IP addresses from the shared network.

See it in action!

Connectify Hotspot Software App Makes It Easy to Boost a WiFi Network

It's time to say goodbye to those spotty places where you don't get any WiFi signal around the house, the garden or in your office. And the best part - you don't need any dedicated device to plug in - just your laptop will do. Together with the best WiFi booster app for PC, Connectify Hotspot!

Why Connectify Hotspot WiFi Booster App is Better than a WiFi Booster Device (a.k.a. WiFi Range Extender)

When you think about eliminating those spots where you don't get WiFi signal - first thing that comes into mind (and online searches) are WiFi range extender devices. These are standalone products that you have to:

  • set up with any new WiFi networks before using,
  • keep them plugged in to a power source,
  • hope they cover the spotty WiFi place.

On the other side, when using a WiFi booster app like Connectify Hotspot, you don't have worry about configuring it through a dedicated interface or staying next to a power outlet. Plus - you get much more than the WiFi booster functionality. Your laptop or computer is all you need!
