When it is time to connect the computer to internet. There are different steps into accomplishing this goal. First thing required is locating a dual coaxial cable. This is the cable that is coming from the feed horn of the satellite dish. It is important to then direct theses coaxial cables and find a way to run them into the house and where the computer is located.
The second thing that needs doing is setting up the modem that is made for the satellite internet connection. This is usually a stand-alone unit. However, it can also be a card that installs in the central processing unit, which is abbreviated CPU. If it happens that you have a computer connection that uses a card, then you will need to install card into your computer. Once you have accomplished this, then can effectively continue with connecting your computer to the internet.
The third thing you need to do is, make sure that you have properly plug the coaxial cables into the two ports on the modem. One of these ports will be marked as “Sat In” while the other will be market “Sat Out.” It is essential and even standard for your cables to be marked, so you know where to plug these cables. If it happens that these cables are not, then you are going to really need to access the dish to see which one comes from which connection on the feed horn. This is what makes it easy for you to successfully connect the modems.
There is a fourth thing that need to be accomplished, and this is connecting these cables by pushing them straight into the ports and then make sure that the cables are secure. Most of these modems have a threaded connector to hold them securely to the modem.
The fifth thing is snapping one end of an Ethernet cable into the port that is on the back of the modem, and once that is done, you need to plug the other end into the Ethernet port on the CPU. This is not possible to do to an internal modem.
The sixth thing you need to do is energizing the external modem. This is accomplished by plugging one end of a power cord into it. Then, you can plug the other into a surge suppressor or a power director.
The seventh thing needed is to install any required software on the computer and check for proper Internet operation.
