For the last 4 days or so I have been getting all sorts of error messages. The site cannot be displayed, graphics fail to load up and on and on. At first I blamed it on the latest upgrade to Zone alarms latest update. Then I tryed 2 other laptops with identical results. Signal strength is steady. Dial up seems to work just fine. Anyone experienced similar problems? Could this be a Hughes issue?

If you're talking about your browser loading up a blank page and reporting "Done" I'm seeing the same thing. Page won't load until I click multiple times on "Refresh". I cleared a bunch of spyware using Spybot ... but the problem continues .... argggh.
Ok ... In checking other forums it appears to be a problem at NOC with certain proxys. To try and fix go to the following:
1.Advanced Configuration and Statistics page. 2.Click on the "Turbo Page Configuration" on the left 3.Select "Auto Select TurboPage Server" (default) 4.Click on the "Teardown TurboPage Connection" button and then on the "Continue" button.
You many not get a good one on the first try so to check what your's is on, go to www.yourip.us
At the moment mine is on 220.127.116.11 and the problem seems to have gone away.
I appreciate your suggestions, Jim, and maybe others can use it but I have no idea where to find those pages you mentioned. No adjustments are made to settings on our computer without checking with our installer, Bill Adams first. I've gotten in over my head before! I was just happy to know it wasn't our computer. The problem seems to have straightened out by itself for the moment at least, which is a good thing.
He is talking about 192.168.0.1/fs/advanced/advanced.html
That is not a change to your computer's settings. It is forcing a change to the modem's settings - a setting that changes on its own often throughout the course of the day. If you get a bad proxy server, there is never any harm in trying to force a change to another one - worst case scenario is a reboot of the modem if you completely messed it up.
The problem is that the current situation appears to affect a bunch of the Hughes proxy servers, not just one or two.
We have been seeing similar problems. But note we have 4000 modems and are on 99W. The only way we could load a page was to turn off the proxy.

No, they never admit to such things. Eventually the furor gets large enough that someone checks into it, fixes it, and it just goes away.
What you have to realize is that it is entirely possible that the responsible parties have not yet heard that they have a problem, because of the way things work at Hughes. About 1 person in a thousand will bother to call Hughes or their VAR, and until there are hundreds of calls (at least) it doesn't get escalated.
