Will rain affect the signal and to what extend?

Rain Fade is the loss of signal from the satellite during the rain.
Rain fade can occur even if it is not raining at our location.
A large black thunderhead can block signal if it gets between you and the satellite.
Rain Fade is the physical phenomenon that deteriorates RF signals due to the presence of moisture (rain, snow, ice) in the transmission path.
Losses are especially prevalent at higher frequencies like Ka-band (Y1-B is a Ka-band satellite) Rain Fade can be caused by precipitation at the uplink or downlink location. However, it does not need to be raining at a location for it to be affected by rain fade, as the signal may pass through precipitation many miles away.
Signal loss can occur due to presence of precipitation on the antenna assembly as well HN system has mechanisms built in to minimize the effect of rain fade on service known as Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) and Adaptive Inbound Selection (AIS).

Can viruses effect the system?

Viruses can enter your PC in the same way than any other internet options. The customer must protect the PC through anti-virus software.
