ModemModulator-Demodulator, pronounced as a word. A modem is a device that enables a computer to transmit data over a satellite connection, or over telephone or cable lines. The modem attaches data packets to a carrier wave and transmits it, then receives and decodes packets from returned signals.
There are currently three modems used with Direcway Internet services, the DW6000, the HN7000, and the HN7000S. There are two additional modems which are still active but no longer supported or being activated by HughesNet, the DW4000 and the DW4020.
