@user_b3bb52 This is something you probably should be asking at Dish since it's their network.

Actually it is Xfinities network and who I get the reports from. Don't know why hackers would target a satelite reciever.

Hi, @user_b3bb52. Are you using our internet service but Dish's service for TV, or do you have all services through Dish/other competitors?

I have DishNetwork for TV and Xfinity for internet. Not using Xfinity for TV etc, only internet. The Dish reciever has to be connected to the gateway for updates and billing.
