    I live in a very remote area of Spain and have bi-directional satellite broadband.The Sat modem connects into the LAN port via the RJ45.Reception is via satellite dish.The installer just said I need a router with DCHP.Anyone used one in this situation,I know its a long shot and have given next to no information,however my situation has more in common with cable than phone line ADSL.Thanks all.Tony.

    I think you can use the WRT54G with a satellite modem. You'll probably have to set the Internet Connection type in the WRT54G webinterface to "Automatic Configuration - DHCP".

    In the Sveasoft forum there are several postings by US soldiers in Iraq, which are using WRT54G routers & satellite connections. Some have even posted pictures of their setup.
