    Default SkyStar USB or StarBox II


    Which is the better External USB box? Skystar USB or Twinhan StarBox II.

    Can I use Internet using both these?
    Do these boxes requires extra power supply or consume from USB Port?

    Kindly suggest.

    High speed Internet via satellite
    To use "Internet via satellite" service, you need to have an account from satellite Internet service provider, plus an account with a local Internet Service Provider. First, you connect to the Internet via your local Internet Service provider. Secondly, you log on to your Satellite Internet provider. If you are sending a request for a specified web page, the request goes via your local provider to the Satellite provider. They will retrieve the Internet data and send this specified web page via Satellite back to your Computer. The download speed depends on the satellite ISP provider.
    you will need an external power supplied, usually bundled with the hardware. i'd go for a SS2 over twinhan.

    i don't think so. besides, it IS BETTER to have it's own power supply since there have been instances of usb devices not working properly with the USB supplied power, especially when put on a USB hub. and i have personally experienced USB devices malfunctioning and ultimately killed the USB ports when a lot of USB dependent devices were connected requiring DC supply from the USB PORT.
