@atgood9 - The MicroCell is not intended for satellite or wireless broadband. It is meant for a land-based internet service only, which is DSL or cable. That's mentioned in the setup instructions and on the outside of the box (at least on the DPH-154 model). It has been used with minimal success with satellite but it is not reliable and as such is not supported by AT&T. We won't support it either. Hughes will tell you that it will work but will blame any problems you have on AT&T. Don't mean to sound harsh but you are out of luck as far as using the MicroCell with a satellite internet service. Basically the lag and jitter is just too great for VoIP.
