    We recently moved to a rural area where the only internet service we can get is dial-up or satellite internet service. We chose Hughesnet and got the HN9000 modem and we're having trouble connecting the D-link router to use for our other computers (it works fine when the modem is directly connected to my tablet via Ethernet cable). We've contacted hughestnet and they said the d-link will work with it but couldn't be more specific. Can you please tell me what to do to get the router to work with the modem.

    Attached is the information collected from running IPCONFIG /ALL as well as

    that ipconfig /all info is a router
    and looking at this link http://www.hughes.com/ProductsAndTe...stem/Pages/HN9000BroadbandSatelliteModem.aspx right at the bottom , the modem is in fact also a router
    also confirmed in the user manual http://www.viasatelital.com/manuales/Instalacion-HN9000.pdf

    so to connect two routers together see below

    Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together

    Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together
    Shamelessly stolen from a John Will Post :)

    Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

    Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

    Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

    Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

    Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

    Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

    This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

    For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router
