Does anyone know why Hughes is putting this "Flow Control" in effect?. They have been slowing me down every evening, except on Saturday and Sundays.    Is this some kind of load balancing? This just started happening about 3 weeks ago. Before then, I had been getting good speeds most of the time, all during the week. Now my speeds have been in the range of 120 kbps to 350 kbps down in the evening time.  Evey time I get slowed down, I can go look at this page, and it says "Flow control in Effect   -  Yes"

Odds are that you're on an over-populated gateway - but - PEP errors CAN be on either end. I'd have to know if that PEP statistic (BAD) causes a red X on the Diagnostics/Hourly History page - and if so, after which category.

Have you tried a turbo-page teardown to see if it helps?
