The ISP will almost certainly supply a router and so your normal connections will work. I can't see an ISP provided router not also including wireless, so you should be able to connect both wired and wireless by default.

At the end of the day, it's just the ISP providing the pipe. The pipe uses satellite, but there's no other differences at your end.

Anecdotally, I used a satellite connection for about a year - with Linux. That was back a dozen years ago, when my house was being built and before DSL was an option. It worked just fine. As an end user, you shouldn't really notice anything else - except for some lag.

- except for some lag.

Yeah, the lag will be an improvement. It's only noticed when you first start a download or load a web page. The lag is a matter of physics as the signal must make the round trip to and from a satellite. It's livable lag, though probably not if you're an online gamer of any kind.

My download speeds are currently acceptable. My big bottleneck is uploading.

We'll have some fun with this and see if it's informative.

Press CTRL + ALT + T and that will open your terminal. Copy/paste the following:

Code:
ping linuxtips.gq
When you get bored, press CTRL + C.

Also, you can just run this command and not learn the bit about CTRL + C.

Code:
ping -c 5 linuxtips.gq
You will see something like this:

Code:
64 bytes from linuxtips.gq (45.34.7.20): icmp_seq=2 ttl=48 time=151 ms
At the bottom, you can look at the output that looks like this:

Code:
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 130.579/178.571/331.768/76.868 ms
And the interesting part is the 2nd column - the average time it took to complete each ping.
