What router does Viasat use?

The router that Viasat uses is built into the modem that is offered to customers. This is so that customers don’t have to go out to buy their own and it reduces the clutter that can accumulate with extra wires and devices to simplify the experience. If the customer wants to buy a faster router then they are able to do so, but because the router in the modem is from Viasat the customer has access to technical support for it. The router does come with 4-port Gigabit Ethernet which gives the customer the ability to plug in computers, laptops or other devices with an ethernet cable. This means that when files are being transferred it will transfer up to a gigabit per second between devices. The router that Viasat supplies also comes with Selectable dual band frequency 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz connections, it supports Wifi types 802.11 a/b/g/n, allows guest network capability, basic parental controls, and supports WPS, WEP and WPA security standards. Something to note with using the internet through satellite is the more devices connected to the router means the less available bandwidth (speed) there is. With there being a data cap on all plans for Viasat your data will be used faster with more devices connected to the router. This is just to keep in mind if you are having issues reaching your data cap early in the month.
