You will need a modem, but your satellite internet installation will come with a modem/router combo unit so you don’t need to buy your own.

Satellite signals are transmitted via radio waves, which travel best through open air but can get deflected or dispersed when they pass through water, buildings, and heavy foliage.
This is why satellite signals weaken during weather conditions like rain, snow, and even dust storms.
