New Modem model to be released ?

I recently ran across this document describing a new modem model.

Would any Hughes employee care to provide any details as to release date, system platform it will be used on and so forth ?

Wonder if this will be the modem for the new bird?

Hi Gwalk,

Thank you for your interest. This modem is not a consumer based product and is designed for enterprise customers. At this time there are no plans for a new consumer modem model.

That is what I was wondering too.

Dual band, dual LAN ports, router or switch.

Oh Drat !!!!

It had some nice features .... dual LAN would lend itself more to the Consumer than Enterprise side I would think.

Thanks for the Reply Chris.

Hughes tends to keep dual LAN to enterprise only systems...  Tends to be useful for failover networks, where if one router or firewall fails, another automatically takes over for the network.  Don't really see dual LAN being useful for consumers as most have a router already.

I was thinking of the "I have two computers and don't need wireless" type of user that doesn't need the "complication" of setting up a router.

Those users are sadly few in number, too few to justify putting the circuitry for the second NIC onto an HT1100 or any other consumer model.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THOSE OF US WHO AREN'T ALLOWED TO HAVE/USE ROUTERS? BESIDES, WITH ALL THE PROBLEMS I'VE HAD TO CALL ON; THE FIRST THING THEY ASK ME ABOUT IS THE "ROUTER" I'M USING!

I JUST FIGURED: "WHY EVEN START ANY MORE TROUBLES?"

OKAY, "DUMB QUESTION TIME": JUST WHAT IS A ROUTER ANYWAY?
