If you have one of the new ViaSat modems with the built in router you don't need a router.  If you don't have one of the new ViaSat modems you will only be able to connect one device at a time to the modem and it has to be hard wired with an Ethernet cable.  It could be your PC or it could be your TV, but not both at once.
