You are welcome to send pictures of the hub racks and the hub dish, the story about its installation, how it works, coverage areas, how long it took to learn how to operate the hub, problems found and overcome, successes, failures, customer reactions etc.

Best regards, Eric.

Dear slimroykev,

I will presume that you have the following hardware

1.Antenna,
2.LNB
3.BUC
4.Cables and connectors
5.your Location in planet Earth.
6.an ISP

Solution
Your ISp should be able to tell you what satellite to point to.
example W4, NSS7, IS7/10

Because you have to connect to that specific satellite to in-other the NOC to syn with your site and approve/authentic that site.

Am I based in Nigeria and  Skyedge IP (KU) and sky edge Pro(Ku) both point to IS 907 Satellite

The information your provider gives you and your location will guide you on the direction to point you dish. East or West and also the estimated angle of elevation.

for IS 907 satellite  the Rx pol is Horizonal. and we point west (250-270deg. depend on you location in Nigeria)

next is to login into the modem .
you will need an installer's user name and password to login via web interface for newer model if Skyegde modem

Modem Defaulf IP 192.168.0.1

login and then locate the SAT PARAMETERS:         and Fill in the Satellite parameter providered by you ISP. Usually this is pre-configred by your ISP
                     
               Main O/B Modulation      ?
             Main O/B Code Rate      ?
             Main O/B Frequancy      ? KHz
             Main O/B Data Rate         ?
            
             Synch PID      ?
             MC & C PID      ?
             Streamer PID      ?
             Work Group ID      ?
             Software Group ID      ?
            
               VSAT ID: ?      
               IP address: ?      
               Subnet mask :       ?

Save setting


You can Now start Tracking.

If You dont have an ISP and Intelsat 907 is within your satellite footprint, You can  contact hyperia Nigeria or Globaltt  for service


Best of luck.


Best Regards
Green A.O
