Why no wireless modem? its 2015!
I would not want the modem to have wireless capability since, like many others, the modem is located in the far end of the house. At that location, wireless signals would not be usable, so I prefer to have a separate wireless router located in a location closer to the users.
My last satellite modem functioned well for 9 years before I upgraded to Exede. I went through three generations of wireless routers during that time span. I'm just as glad I wasn't tied to an early generation router. (Yeah, I know...the cable companies and DSL folks combine their modem and router.)
I too am glad they don't! We have a cable line at work to have wireless that is in no way tied to our network and that modem has wireless built in and I sit closer to that modem then our wireless router on the other side the building and my phone connects to the router over the modem.
