Thanks in advance,

If you want one way (download) satellite internet service your consumer type receive only satellite TV dish and LNB will be fine, unless it is one of the very small variety.   You may have to re-point the dish to a satellite providing one-way internet service and in this case satellite TV reception, if any, will be different.   One-way satellite service is low cost but you must use a dial-up phone line modem simultaneously.

For two-way VSAT service you need a new approved dish with new feed system incorporating a transmit BUC and receive LNB.

Best regards, Eric.
