Router vs Satellite

I was wondering if the wireless signal strength is the same for the router and the satellite. In other words, should I consider the routher as the "primary" wireless source or can I treat them equally?

Re: Router vs Satellite

I believe you can treat them equally. Distance between the router and satellite is key. Placement of 30feet in between to begin with is recommended. Mines 40 feet. Great coverage and range for a 5000sq ft home.
