    On the faq site it says you can not use linksys with satelite. Do they mean Hughesnet? If they do not what is the best stuff to buy to connect two computers to one hughes net box I have the HN7000S box. I had my two computers set up in a peer to peer coaxile network so I could share files and a printer. When he hooked up the box for hughes net to my network card the network between the two computers quit working. I am thinking I can't use the same network card for the hughes box as I do for the peer to peer. Can I just install another network card or should I use a router or hub. What would work best.If I can use linksys with hughesnet what would you recommend I get to set this up.

    How does your computer get an IP address from the Hughesnet box? Dynamic (DHCP) or is it a static IP address? Or do you need to log into the Hughesnet box similar to dialup by providing a username and password?
