In my efforts to make hnFAP-Alert work for everybody with a 7000 or 9000 series modem I've been working with a small number of 9000 users who have had major problems with it. Hard, because I can't test the problems here.
In the process of fixing their problem, the program has been streamlined and its resource-impact lessened, which is good all around. I think I am close to release on this, but I need testers who were not having problems to try it and make sure that it still works as it should.
It is all working well and it did disconnect my connection as requested. I suppose that anyone with any computer sense already knew this, but while my computer disconnected, Janet's computer went along on it's merry way. You would have to install the program on all computers connected to the Hughes modem, I assume.

Yes. The only way to take down all computers would be to disable the router. Not technically impossible, but there are just too many different routers to make that practical.
I still have some 9000 users with problems, and I've replaced the test copy a couple of times this evening, but since I can test for the 7000 that hasn't been a big problem. Very difficult to debug a system for which you don't have the same hardware.
