  • Need to move my Dish to the roof after testing on the ground. What steps do I need to take?
    by /u/Blackvette2000 on July 2, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    I need to disconnect the from the cable and mount it on the roof and reconnect. Do I need to actually stow the dish before powering it all down? I am literally raising it from the ground straight up to the roof maybe 8-10' Can I just power it all down and then power it all back up once moved? submitted by /u/Blackvette2000 [link] [comments]

  • Transferring service
    by /u/samaroid0187 on July 2, 2022 at 4:55 pm

    So I’m moving to one of the most unpopulated areas in NV where competition for Starlink is not likely to be high. I don’t know how long I will live there, max a year. Then I’ll go somewhere hopefully with a bigger population. Anyway, I am renting a house and when I go I will ask my landlord if she wants to buy out some of the equipment and then have the new tenants activate service. Again, very low population (maybe a 1,000). Assuming there is availability of satellites, the new tenant can just activate the service right? submitted by /u/samaroid0187 [link] [comments]

  • RV vs Residential
    by /u/No_Opposite4372 on July 2, 2022 at 4:45 pm

    Okay so I ordered Starlink planning to have it for the house my wife and I are building. We thought it would be a few months till we got it. Buy I got it right away. I have the service address for the new house but we where thinking since we have is to use it at our current place until then. I keep reading how changing service address might make it to where we have no service for awhile. I also thought about changing it to rv and use it and when I move to the new house change it back to residential. Would this work or what should I do. The new house is about 21 miles from where we currently are and we are hoping to be moving out there in december when we finish. submitted by /u/No_Opposite4372 [link] [comments]

  • 3rd party mesh suggestions
    by /u/Secure-Ad8745 on July 2, 2022 at 3:29 pm

    I've had a lot of trouble with using my Asus XT8's for mesh with my SL. I see that many others with XT8's have had the same issues as I have. Asus tech support cannot give me answers after 3 weeks of back and forth. Does anyone have any suggestions for a 3rd party mesh that will work with SL? I am not getting the best speeds with the SL router. Thanks! submitted by /u/Secure-Ad8745 [link] [comments]

  • What Cat cable do I need.
    by /u/isuppose12 on July 2, 2022 at 1:26 pm

    So I’ve been having issues with my speeds. I know people have had speed issues lately also. Throttling or whatever. But I’m not quite sure this is my issue. I have a self made cat5 cable that was put together in 2015. Not sure if it’s cat5e or regular cat 5. When I use a new cat5e cable directly to the modem I get 120+ mbps. But when I directly connect with my old cat5 , roughly 100ft long , I get 93mbps tops. Not sure if my old cat5 is shit. Or if star link prefers a shielded cat 7 cable. submitted by /u/isuppose12 [link] [comments]

  • IPTV service won’t work
    by /u/Pozzilicious on July 2, 2022 at 12:54 pm

    Hi everyone, I’m currently visiting my mom and she uses starlink for her internet. When I’m home my internet provider is Fizz (Canadian company) and everything works fine; no lag, no buffering, and even not using vpn. I’m using tivimate as streaming player and I’m trying to understand what’s the problem right now. I only see the loading loop and nothing’s happening. I’ve tried using a VPN app before launching the media player but nothing. I would appreciated a little help here. Thanks submitted by /u/Pozzilicious [link] [comments]

  • Asus GT-AX11000 & Surfshark VPN
    by /u/ToyGirls on July 2, 2022 at 12:08 pm

    I have Starlink (bridged/bypass mode) and I'm using an Asus GT-AX11000. Everything is working great with Starlink and I'm super happy with the service but I just can't get my Surfshark VPN to work the way I'd like. Prior to using Starlink, I had it set up on the router via VPN Fusion (OpenVPN). It worked fine and, ideally, I'd like to maintain that. (I do know I can do it at the device level but it's just easier for me this way.) Just to be clear, on the Asus, I've gone to LAN > DHCP Server and manually assigned IPs to a number of my devices. Then in VPN > VPN Fusion, I've added added the Surfshark credentials to the server list. It shows as connected. In the table below, I've put the devices through the Surfshark connection and applied that. It used to work fine but now, when I check the IP of the devices, it now shows Starlink's IP, not Surfshark's. I'm not exactly an advanced user so don't know where to start troubleshooting this. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks! submitted by /u/ToyGirls [link] [comments]

  • Proper Lightning Grounding for Rectangular Dish.
    by /u/Junnnebug on July 2, 2022 at 11:35 am

    I am going to set up my dish on a pole mount outside my house. Starlink support said no additional lightning protection is needed since it’s attached to the house ground, but I don’t believe them. My area has frequent strikes and I want to be safe. I understand the rectangular dish is harder to ground than the round one, does anyone have advice on how to set up proper lightning protection for it? The goal is not to protect my dish but to prevent a surge from entering the house and starting a fire or destroying electronics. submitted by /u/Junnnebug [link] [comments]

  • Thinking about selling my Starlink kit, what are the options?
    by /u/vishnera52 on July 2, 2022 at 11:02 am

    Hi Everyone, it's been ages since I last posted here but I am one of the early beta testers, having received my kit back in January of 2021. Just to be clear, this is the beta kit, circular dish with non-mesh router. My local ISP has finally finished installing fiber in my area. Over 2 years after first announcing it and 13 months worth of delays beyond the original completion date. The fiber conduit sat in the ground empty for nearly a year before they were finally able to procure the fiber optic cable. Gotta love those supply shortages hitting literally every sector. It looks like their fiber service will be the more reliable option for me, not that Starlink has been particularly unreliable, so I'll probably switch to their service. I don't really consider it fiber as they are still using a wireless backhaul, it's more of a hybrid system IMO but I won't get into the questionable ethics of marketing it as fiber here. According to the install tech the system is very low latency and achieves the throughput they advertise. I'd be looking at 100 down 50 up on their system for $100 a month, so it does undercut Starlink for similar performance. Of course I want to trial the service for a month to confirm that it will achieve what they advertise. The install tech claimed they are using a wireless system that is capable of 80 gbps. Based on my very rough napkin math assuming 100 households, symmetric download/upload on the wireless and their rate plans, it won't cause a bottleneck so prime time degradation should be minimal to non-existent. I'm curious what others think of this claim? It'll be a couple weeks before I'm in a position to test it. Now for the reason for my post, what is the best way to go about selling my Starlink kit, should I choose to do so? What have others experienced when selling their kits, particularly around the process of digitally transferring to the new owner? submitted by /u/vishnera52 [link] [comments]

  • Smart home intergration
    by /u/ihatethisplace12321 on July 2, 2022 at 9:50 am

    So my in laws built a beautiful custom home in hill country of Texas. They’re builder sold them in making it a “smart” home. They company who installed all the features had the get viasat to control the features, but they constantly have connection issues. Can’t stream tv or really anything that requires a decent speed. They just got Starlink RV on my advice to takeover their media and data needs. It works great. They just got email saying that their waitlist for regular Starlink is over and can now purchase, they did. They contacted this company and asked them to full integrate this system into their “smart” home and they said. “Well it doesn’t work like that. We don’t know if it will work”. They started using a bunch of technical terms to confuse my MIL. They just told me over dinner. I called bullshit on them. I’m not an expert (but neither are these guys, I had to fix the ring door bell that they couldn’t figure out). From my understanding, all they would have to do is. Take down Viasat satellite down garage and replace with Starlink, then plug it into their system. Their system does have Ethernet jacks. Does this make sense to anyone? Or am I delusional thinking it should have no problem working. In my eyes, it should have no issues. submitted by /u/ihatethisplace12321 [link] [comments]

  • Starlink monthly recurring payment through ApplePay?
    by /u/DishyFan on July 2, 2022 at 9:43 am

    Hello folks, I am a proud new Dishy Owner! It works like a charm! A question about billing: I created my account and paid for my kit using Apple Pay. Now, I got an email that my first recurring service payment is due soon and the recurring payment method will be charged. Will my Apple Pay that I used to sign up be used for this? Or will I have to enter a credit card number? In my account, the automatic payment credit card info is blank, and it says nothing about Apple Pay. I am inclined to just wait until the payment due date and see if it works with Apple Pay. What happens if Apple Pay fails and my payment does not work - does the website have a way to pay manually, or will I have to call customer service? Thanks!!! submitted by /u/DishyFan [link] [comments]

  • Getting WiFi to reach Camper
    by /u/TheShnoz0824 on July 1, 2022 at 4:27 am

    So my neighborhood just recently gained access to spectrum fiber internet, a product I am considering purchasing for my house. However, I also have a camper that I use when I travel for work, I'm more concerned currently with getting the internet from spectrum to reach my camper without having to pay 2 bills and find some location in the camper to run the fiber cable through (I'd rather not drill holes in the camper) The camper currently sits roughly 30-50 yards outside my front door, essentially its at the end of my driveway, does anyone here know if the wifi will reach the camper effectively if I had it installed in my house? Would a wifi range extender make the signal reach the camper if installed in my house? Ideally I would the internet to be just as fast and useful in the camper as it would in my house (I know this may be wishful thinking but that's the ultimate goal) while I'd like to get out spending as little money as possible obviously, cost isn't really an obstacle, that is to say if I have to spend a couple hundreds dollars on equipment to avoid having to pay 2 monthly bills and have fiber run into my camper I will. submitted by /u/TheShnoz0824 [link] [comments]

  • Fixed Wireless Internet Repair
    by /u/No-Tacos-940 on June 29, 2022 at 12:46 pm

    I have Nextlink Internet, it's a wireless internet service that uses a radio transceiver at my house aimed at a tower 4-5 miles away. Much like regular wifi, but for extended range. They offer 90's pricing, using 90's speeds and technologies. They're pretty much the only game in town. I pay $60+ for 10meg, unlimited data. 5 days ago, my internet went out and I called to report outage. I called everyday till yesterday to find out how my "remote recovery" was going. Last night they finally thru in the towel and said we can't figure out why yours isn't working and scheduled an appointment to replace the radio. I'm shocked to learn that they have a 3 week repair lead time. I'm in a rural area with hardly any cell service. We rely on Nextlink Internet for wifi calling. Unless we go outside, we have no cell service. It's a hardship on us. What is the typical wait time for a technician to come to your house? Is 3 weeks unreasonable? submitted by /u/No-Tacos-940 [link] [comments]

  • Has anyone used a Multi-WAN Router like the TP-Link ER605 with multiple connections?
    by /u/DansDrives on June 28, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    I'm currently running 3 Verizon home internet routers and 1 T-Mobile Home Internet router for my house and running various systems on each to get things done. I'm wondering if I can combine them all into this and use it as a load balancer, then use my Google Home Routers for Wifi. In Theory that would get me over 250Mbps, which would be pretty ideal, as well as fail over. I'm going to give it a shot and just see what happens, but I'd love to hear if someone has done it before. submitted by /u/DansDrives [link] [comments]

  • Verizon hotspot with zigbee gear?
    by /u/rycolos on June 27, 2022 at 10:04 pm

    I just moved to a new construction home and Comcast is saying it'll be 2+ months until they run lines out to us. We have pretty decent Verizon and T-Mobile service (no Home Internet sadly) so I got a 8800L hotspot from Verizon with their 150GB plan. That should be enough for me to work from home. In the meantime, I would like to get some of my smart home stuff online like my Phillips Hue lights and my Aqara temperature sensors and switches. All of these go through Zigbee to their respective hubs and work without an internet connection. How would I go about connecting them to my network? Would tethering the 8800L to something like a GL.iNet Slate or Beryl work? Anything I'm missing here? submitted by /u/rycolos [link] [comments]

  • PairVPN (Update)
    by /u/WhiteManRequis on June 27, 2022 at 4:33 pm

    So over the past month or so i’ve posted quite a bit on hotspot usage and pairvpn, since it’s my only source of good internet. My billing period reset yesterday, so I have a few quick questions. Is PairVPN really worth it if i’m gaming 3-4 hours a night? I also want to make sure people that use AT&T and run PairVPN can confirm that it truly hides hotspot usage. If anybody can answer these questions I would once again really appreciate it. submitted by /u/WhiteManRequis [link] [comments]

  • They're bad but which is a better option?
    by /u/HttpsWynnie on June 27, 2022 at 8:47 am

    I live way out here in AZ and currently have HughesNet with 3.69down & 3.21up right now. I have been researching what's a good switch for a better internet. Unless there is a universe I have not searched on- I believe these are all my options. Xtream Mediacom (Very bad reviews) Viasat (Bad reviews & Expensive) Phoenix Internet (Very bad reviews & 25 is the highest you can get?) Ultra Home Internet (Can't see any reviews & it's $80 for 50GB?) I'm debating whether I am stuck to HughesNet or is there a better way to do this. I cannot play my mobile games (like CODM) with this wifi & there are like 4 of us using the wifi. Just wondering do you guys have any experience with these names & what do you think is better? submitted by /u/HttpsWynnie [link] [comments]

  • Does great ATT 5G service translate to decent hotspot speeds?
    by /u/HeadFullOfStardust on June 26, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    We are moving in a few months to a location with no options other than satellite or hotspot. We have great ATT 5G cell service there and I’m guessing this is our best option? We have been on the Starlink waitlist since they opened the waitlist and there’s coverage one cell over from where we will be. When we changed our address to the new one in our Starlink profile it went from mid 2022 to 2023, so I guess maybe it bumped us down the list. Would you try ATT (we do own a business so could go with a business account and currently have ATT phones and internet) or would you try Starlink RV? I work from home and need to be able to do WebEx meetings, and other than that, the only other need is basic internet and streaming for the TV. We like gaming but won’t be crushed if we can’t play online anymore. Advice? submitted by /u/HeadFullOfStardust [link] [comments]

  • Need help and info on increasing speeds with TMHI (T-Mobile)
    by /u/Hunter_Herring on June 24, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    I’m moving currently and we are moving into a cabin about 150-200 yards behind our house. I get 10-12 mbps down and about .85 mbps up and I was wondering if this could be because I was being deprioritized at the time of testing. I also want to know if anybody else only gets 4g signal and how fast your speeds are so I can gauge about what mine would be as this is my current signal strength. The cabin is in a slight valley but not too terrible so I expect signal to be similar. I’m thinking about adding an antenna and hoping this would increase my speeds enough to matter. Any info or advice is greatly appreciated. Edit: Grammar submitted by /u/Hunter_Herring [link] [comments]

    by /u/Rena-Shi on June 23, 2022 at 4:22 am

    Hello, I live in an extremely rural area with little to no internet providers (Besides Hughsnet and Viasat) and I've recently tried to use ATT Wireless for the past 2 months (Unlimited/Hotspot) and so far its been the worst internet I've ever had, being excessively slow for the price I pay for (never gets above 3 mb down and upload speed is abismol, sometimes it doesnt even register as on the internet) (95$) so I want to try to find maybe another hotspot or wireless thing I can work with Starlink is excessively expensive for what I can afford and I dont know what to turn too. submitted by /u/Rena-Shi [link] [comments]

  • Should I wait it out for starlink or should I try to find a good cell phone plan?
    by /u/97chris1 on June 22, 2022 at 12:57 am

    So I live in an area where Cell Phone signal is very weak but we have a Signal booster that connects to the Nearest tower about 7 miles away, this is probably the closest Cell Phone tower to us, Verizon has no towers around us and does not work at all. Starlink wont be in our area until 2023. We currently have a Plan with a local company that gives us 20 down/4 up via a Dish that connects to their tower somewhere in the City and it works fine, has low ping, unlimited data but it gets slow at times. I'm looking to find something faster. Should I try to find a good plan that uses cell phone towers or should I just wait it out for starlink? submitted by /u/97chris1 [link] [comments]
