I can't tell - are you looking at the web interface to the controller at all? If so, that would make the question of LEDs moot.
The controller MUST communicate with the modem in order to make the modem work correctly unless you want to get manually involved with the modem the way a tripod user has to. Partial communication is not good enough.
Configuration is correct and matches. My SQ at 8:00 this morning is up to 60 and I'm online.
Changed out the router, rebooted the stack and still do not have a ready light on the D-3 and/or the software interface.
I understand the ready light being a comnunication issue between the modem and the D-3. Could this be "internal" to the modem? If so I have a spare, used, modem and I could ask Motosat to walk me through the install process.
The 'ready' lite not showing would have nothing to do with the low SQ numbers. The 'ready' light means very little so you should not let it worry you. It being out is not affecting you getting connected to the internet (5 lights on modem).
Even the perceived low SQ number may have no meaning because those are subject to change by Hughes at any time. I would not be concerned as long as you have five lights on the modem.

Very possibly, or not. The signal strength is low so you should first find out why but it certainly is possible to pass with a low SS and a very well aimed antenna (you will likely have to make some manual adjustments to the Datastorm positioning).
