Can someone assist me with the "how to's" of ICS and Networking DirecWay and Starband...they are USB modems, how do I connect them to the DSL/Cable router...if at all, or just set it up so two or more PC's can use the satellite connection?

My experince with Direcway is that you can only share the internet connection by using the IP address of the computer it is installed on to as the gateway for other computers.

Computer#1 PC where the satellite is installed:

Computer#2 PC that wants to get an internet connection from Computer#1:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 2:

        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
        Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) PRO/100+ Management Adapter

        Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-90-27-74-A0-65
        DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.42.101
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.42.105

                                            198.77.116.12

Your ip addresses may differ but the concept is true and it works for me as I have 14 pcs getting there signal from this satellite.

Yes, DirectWay IDU cannot be connected directly to a cable/DSL router.  It needs to be connected to a PC serving as gateway with Internet Connection Sharing enabled on Windows or equivalent on other OSes.

Note that, typically, cable/DSL routers have DHCP support.  If you don't disable it, make sure that the IP address ranges used by the DHCP server and ICS don't come into conflict.

here is the website with every question and answer about the direcpc product. This is a independent site not connected with Hughs. There is a small fee for access but for direcpc users it is invaluable.

although you can go to the DirecPc site and read about ICS- they have instructions as well as many other sites.
