I wondering that are there extra difficulties to censor or block a web site for governments when using satellite internet services. If there are difficulties, what can they be?

This is for my homework and I really need help. If you have any idea or information please respond.

Use a router. All modern routers have filtering as standard equipment. Plug in the web site you want to block and done.

I'm afraid Coryphaeus did misunderstand your question. He tells you how to block a website in your router. But I think you mean something else. Can you explain that better so he (and others) understand it better?

Don't have too high hopes, however, that we will be helping with homework for school. That's something you should do yourself.

He had posted on this before and does not realize it is not a technical problem it is a international treaty issue.

There are agreements/licenses to only provide service in certain areas. The signal itself will cover many countries depending on which part of the world it is. The companies that run these services are only allowed to sell the boxes to consumers in the countries they are licensed to.

It would be up to customs in various countries to prevent the importing of the hardware once its in the country the signal provider really has no way to know where the device is.

Actually my homework is to ask this question to a forum about satellite internet. I tried to join other forums about satellite internet but I cannot because there is no activation mail. Then I found CNET forum and I know this is not a proper place for my question so sorry about misunderstanding.

So you did your homework.

You posted the question. And you even got an answer from Bill012. So everything seems fine to me.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
