Lousy Sat. Connection; Broken Router

Recommended Posts

We live in the sticks with poor (Direcway Satellite) connectivity.  Our Netgear wireless router got sizzled by lightning and we have had no luck with the replacement Netgear Wirelesss Next product.  Now I know it's because our bandwidth is poor (thank you, Testmy) so what should be use,  "Steady Stream" technology being out of the question?

Did I say, "HELP"?

We're abandoning Direcway and signing up with WildBlue.  Because of our isolation, I predict that their signal will also be weak.  So what type/brand of wireless router do you recommend?  The ones I know about are all preferably for DSL or Cable - I know of none that accomodate the unpredicitability of a weak Satellite signal.

Thank you for your help.  I just found this site as I researched my router problem.  It is a fun place to explore!

What do you mean "no luck" with the new router? Can you even use HughesNet right now?

Are you sure your HughesNet modem wasn't 'sizzled' as well?

Guess I misunderstood the question Casey, I thought you were having problems with it working without the router also.

Isn't yours the 4000 deven?

Nah, I woke up fine.

But it's pretty obvious this is more of a hardware problem rather than settings related. Even if his settings were off, I doubt he would have a "lousy" connection.

Yea tommie, still got the 4000. I was just showing my reading of 59, which is usually low for me and still have good speeds. Its not all roses ,I was cut off from 11pm til 6:30am and don't know why. All I got was antenna adjustment warnings, but when I checked it was excellent.
