Maybe we can get this to sticky-status, too.

I know there isn't a bunch of active SB posters here, but I think it's a good idea to poll forum traffic.

I've been using SB for about one year now with a 481 telecommuter system.
Before SB gave up 2 of their 5 Ku transponders, over the past 4 months, service was great.
Now it is, in some respects, slower than my back up 26.4 K dial-up account.
I'm waiting for WildBlue to get up and running.

Sorry, l@@ks real to me.

How come I can't find a stitch of sales information about the 480 over at the SB website? What is the history of this modem? Or did they fark-up and the 481 was the fix?

Hey, I did find a picture, looks like a 484 to me.

If I remember right the 480 was the original modem for that series and was geared towards SOHO user's. Then came the 481 (for us regular people) which caused the 480 to be changed to 484. Pretty sure the 480 and 484 are the same.
