Hughes Net Customers Not Able to Access Canvas


Recently we discovered an issue with Hughes Net customers not being able to get to any page within Canvas from their computers, but the app from mobile would work fine on the same network. We found out through Canvas, and Hughes Net, that this was due to a setting within the modem/router that Hughes Net provides. If you're experiencing issues attempting to get into Canvas, then follow these simple steps. 

NOTICE: These steps vary on the router model you have, you can find this on the back of the router, usually on a bar code sticker.  

For GEN4 Modem customers:

1. Open any browser and go to (Router credentials may be needed, you can get these from Hughes Net if you do not know them)

4. Untick the box at the bottom and click submit. 


5. Restart your computer.
