Firstly I am new to the forum and its got some really useful information on it so thank you to all who have contributed. I have just recently had an Avonline 20mb satellite broadband connection added to my parents house. My father now works from home and owing to them being in the middle of nowhere needs broadband which is reliable and (relatively) fast.
Previously they were getting 0.2mb down the phone line which was prone to drop outs/crackling line etc.
I wanted to ask if anyone has used satellite broadband and finds that it has frequent time outs? I realise there is a greater latency etc using the system. Is it possible to adjust any settings on the router/browser to compensate for the time outs? With my limited knowledge I was wondering if it is necessary to adjust anything to make the computer 'wait' for longer for responses?
Sorry if this sounds ridiculous !
