Step 1: Procuring the Starlink Kit

The Leap IT team then visited the customer’s home to conduct a site survey. The goal was to choose an installation location with a clear view of the sky, as the Starlink dish needs this to connect to the satellites. They ensured there were no obstructions such as trees or buildings that could interfere with the signal. Cabling was hidden best we can.

Step 3: Setting Up the Starlink Dish

Once the ideal location was chosen, the team set up the Starlink dish using the mounting tripod included in the kit. They made sure it was stable and secure to withstand various weather conditions that the UK throw at us.

Step 5: Powering On and Connecting

After all cables were connected, they powered on the system. The dish automatically aligned itself to connect to the satellites. Once connected, they set up the Wi-Fi network on the Starlink router and connected all necessary devices. Due to the shape of the house we installed an additional 4 access points to give fast internet around the home.
