satelite internet? who has it?
« on: January 18, 2014, 02:30:45 pm »
Im lookin into getting Hughesnet satelite internet. Nothing else is offered in  my area besides a cellular hotspot...  Verizion is killing me doing the hotspot thing....  My question is what wireless router workes best with these services?

    they all suck and make no difference. you have a huge latency because the signal has to go up into orbit and back down.  :(

    I've had good luck with Linksys (Cisco) E-2500 router - easy setup with no glitches and when my service is speedy, can stream video to TV, 1 computer, and surf on 2nd computer.    My guess is the router will not slow you down but satellite service/speed will be bottleneck.

    Well I now have hughesnet for home use.. ( Use Verizon hotspot for mobile use.)   We will see how this works out....  Picked up a Netgear N300 Router for wireless use.  So far so good....

    any of the 3 mainstream router companies should give you decent service for general home use - Linksys, D-link, or Netgear.
