I can't get on line. It will connect to exede but it won't let me get on web. It says host unknown, no such name. What do I need to do to get this problem fixed.

The first thing to try is power-cycle your modem, and router if used...Do modem first, wait for it to lock to the satellite then your router, if used.  After that reboot your computer and try again..

If that fails try another browser and different web sites...if you have your browser configured to load a specific web site when you first start it, try a different web could be just a problem with your chosen web site..
