Can I use HughesNet to Run a Small Network?

Home networks include everything connected to your HughesNet Internet - from multiple computers to Wi-Fi devices such as tablets and smartphones. Learn more about HughesNet home network capabilities.

You can connect multiple home computers and laptops to a single HughesNet Internet connection. Home networking equipment may be required and is not included with your HughesNet system. For network setup, support, and configuration, contact your network hardware manufacturer and/or operating system software developer (Hughes is not responsible for home network configuration or management).

If you are using a home network, consider purchasing Home Tech Support which offers comprehensive support for your home network up to 4 devices (PCs/tablets/smartphones). In addition, the ‘My Home Network’ plan provides assistance with wireless networking setup/configuration, connecting devices to network, and support for all common technical issues.

All computers on your network will share a single Internet connection. This includes Wi-Fi devices such as tablets and smartphones as well. 

Is there a limit to the number of computers I can connect?
