A good, reliable and fast internet connection is all that is required to utilize this product. It will operate effectively at wireless speeds (100Kbs) but we recommend DSL, Cable or T1 connections with a minimum download (downstream) speed of 500Kbs). Most DSL connections today run at 684Kbs or greater and cable speeds have downstream capabilities in the 3-5Mbs range.
We do not recommend dial-up connections. However, the product will work correctly, it will simply be slow to display.
