Will the Airport (any version) work with WildBlue satellite internet service? We have 2 Macs and 2 PCs in the house. Does each computer need the WildBlue software installed? Wireless is voodoo to me...

    They say it does. The Mac system requirement is basically Tiger or better. You do not need any client software installed.

    WildBlue FAQ

    They do say you are "required to have an up-to-date antivirus software installed on your PC". I would infer that statement applies to PCs and not Macs.

    I'd be interested to hear about your experience with Wildblue. I ruled out both Hugenet and WB some time ago due to lukewarm user reviews. I concluded dialup is cheaper and more reliable.
