a friend of mine organises Multiplayer games via internet and LAN, combined...kinda like a party with PC's

now heres the thing, hes organised a camping trip in a field in the middle of nowhere, and he needs an internet link via Satellite if possible.

He asked me because of my interests is Sat equipment, but this is new to me.

so what equipment is needed and how much will it cost??

Well. You'll more than likely need a subscription, I saw equipment on ebay the other day from a now defunct sat internet provider.

I understand most systems are one way...

You receive the information from the dish but still request it using broadband/phoneline.

Could use his mobile with an ISP.

thing is he's after connecting about 20 computers, so GPRS is a no no... and obviously not quick enough
this company do what hes after, but he wanted to know whats involved so he could cut out the middle man.
