3. Internet Router Configuration

Once the dish is in place and the modem is installed, the technician will configure the router.

  • The router is what will provide you with a WiFi signal.
  • If you have specific devices that you would like assistance connecting to the WiFi, please let us know in advance or ask the technician before they start their work

  • Please note we cannot guarantee that the WiFi will reach all areas of your house. Issues that relate to devices or WiFi coverage are best dealt with by your local IT person.
