    I am about to connect with Ihug's satelite service. I understand I will be
    supplied with a PCI card. Is there a stand alone modem box for Ihug's
    service which would then plug directly into the cable/dsl port on my
    wireless gateway, thus enabling a hardware firewall etc rather than my
    having to use internet sharing and the PCI card.
    I suppose having control over dialing may be an issue whereas cable/dsl are
    'on all the time' services.
    Any comments on the above or internet sharing with this service would be
    appreciated.

    They were testing some when I worked there a few years ago, but the units
    were too buggy (lousy driver support IIRC) and not cheap....
