How To Buy Starlink Accessories

The Starlink hardware kit comes with a temporary mount, 50′ Starlink cable, and Wifi router. This is all the hardware you need to get started, but Starlink accessories allow for permanent installation, increased home Wifi coverage, and more

There are different options for many of the accessories that you might want for your Starlink system. For example, mounts can be sourced from 3rd party stores like Amazon, in addition to the official Starlink store. 

In this article, I will list all the popular Starlink accessories, as well as aftermarket alternatives to consider. I will also explain the ordering process for the Starlink store, and why you may not be able to purchase anything yet. Finally, I will explain the difference in accessories between all the different Starlink hardware versions.

Starlink Accessories – Official vs Aftermarket

You can order accessories from aftermarket sources, like Amazon, or from the official Starlink store. Starlink manufactures the dish and Wifi router, but they also make their own mounting and network accessories. 

Note: You need to be a Starlink customer to view the accessory shop linked above

Which option you choose will depend on a variety of factors, including price, availability, and features. For example, you may opt to purchase an aftermarket mounting system for a more complicated installation. Or you may prefer the Starlink mesh system over an aftermarket mesh product for ease-of-use.

Mounting Accessories

The most common Starlink accessory that people buy are mounts. The base that is included in the Starlink kit isn’t suitable for a permanent installation in most cases. If you plan to install your dish on your roof, wall, or other angled surface, you’ll need a mount accessory that swivels to get the dish mast near vertical. 

Wall Mounts

Starlink Short Wall Mount
Starlink Long Wall Mount

Starlink offers a Short Wall Mount and Long Wall Mount, designed for exterior walls. The Short Wall Mount is suitable for mounting to a roof fascia, while the Long Wall Mount is perfect for securing to an exterior wall.

Winegard DS3000A Universal 42-inch Mount for Off-Air TV Antennas


A great aftermarket alternative for the wall mounts above is a J mount. J mounts have been used for satellite and TV antenna installations for years, so they are readily available and cheap. The Winegard DS2000A is my favorite because it includes two U-bolts to secure the Starlink mast into the J mount. The DS2000A would be great for fascia installations, and is equivelent to the Starlink Short Wall Mount. If you need some additional clearance and height, consider the Winegard DS3000A which has a longer 38 in. mast.

If you go with the DS3000A, be sure to pick up the Universal Antenna Mount Adapter to easily adapt the Starlink mast to the J mount.

Roof Mounts

Starlink Pivot Mount
Starlink Flashing Mount + Pivot Mount

The Flashing Mount and Pivot Mount are two official Starlink mounting accessories for roof installations. It should be noted that the Flashing Mount is just the base that secures to the roof under your shingles for added water resistance. It requires a Pivot Mount.

Commdeck Satellite Dish Mounting System


Aftermarket roof mounting accessories are also readily available. A J mount is equivalent to the Starlink Pivot Mount in terms of features. Like I mentioned earlier, I recommend the Winegard DS2000A.

If you would like a flashing mount, you can pair DS2000A with something like the Commdeck Satellite Dish Mounting System, both pictured above.

Other Mounting Accessories

Starlink Pipe Adapter
Starlink Cable Routing Kit

There are many ways to mount a Starlink dish, so Starlink offers a Pipe Adapter to allow for more complicated or custom installations. The Pipe Adapter adapts the Starlink dish to any kind of mast, up to 2.5″.

If you are routing the Starlink cable through an exterior wall, consider picking up the Cable Routing Kit. It contains almost everything you need to properly route the cable through a wall, including drill bit, grommets, and more.

Check out our Guide to Starlink Mounting Options for more mounting accessories. 

Network Accessories

Most homes will require more Wifi coverage than a single Wifi router can provide. When you order the Starlink kit, you get a very capable Wifi router, but a lot of customers will need to expand their system to provide better Wifi coverage and reliability. You might also want to connect directly to the router via ethernet. That’s where Starlink network accessories come in. 

Starlink Ethernet Adapter

Starlink Ethernet Adapter

The most common network accessory that people will want for Starlink is the Ethernet Adapter. This official Starlink accessory is a proprietary design, meaning you can only get it from Starlink, no aftermarket versions exist. The cost when ordered directly from Starlink is $25.

The Ethernet Adapter is applicable to the newer rectangular Starlink systems. The older round dish came with a Wifi router that featured an ethernet port. To cut costs and limit hardware delays due to supply chain issues, Starlink eliminated the ethernet port on newer Starlink routers. Customers wanting to connect with ethernet will need the adapter from the Starlink store.

Starlink Mesh Nodes

Starlink Mesh Node

If you need to expand your Wifi signal to more areas of your house, you’ll want to set up a mesh network. You can use aftermarket mesh products, but Starlink also has an official version of their own that is compatible with the current rectangular dish. This official Starlink mesh system will compete with existing aftermarket mesh network options to provide better Wifi coverage throughout your home. 

Aftermarket mesh systems are ideal for their cheaper price, better features, and better compatibility with the original round dish. We recommend checking out something like the TP-Link Deco AXE5400 Tri-Band WiFi 6E Mesh System, pictured above, if you want a better performing alternative to the Starlink option.

These 3rd party mesh Wifi systems give you advanced controls compared to the Starlink mesh system, such as parental controls, security features, guest Wifi controls, and more.

Be sure to check out our full article on Starlink and 3rd party mesh Wifi systems.

Starlink Extension/Replacement Cable

Starlink 150ft Replacement Cable

You can extend the distance between your Starlink dish and router with a Starlink replacement cable. Starlink offers replacement cables in a 75ft length, or in an extended 150ft length.

The extension/replacement cables are only available from Starlink. The cables use a proprietary connector, so aftermarket cables are not an option.

It is not possible to combine cables together to extend the length. For example, you can’t combine two 75′ cables to form a 150′ cable.

Starlink Mobile Cases

Pelican 1610 Case With Foam (Black), Model:1610-020-110


With the launch of the Starlink Mobile (aka Roam/RV) service, many people are taking Starlink on-the-go. It’s important that you protect your Starlink hardware, so protective cases are a must for RV’ers, van dwellers, and overlanders. One popular option is the Pelican 1610 Case, pictured above.

Starlink Travel Case

Starlink has their own case, called the Starlink Travel Case. It’s a bit cheaper than some of the aftermarket cases, and is specifically designed for Starlink.

Where Can I Order Accessories?

Official Starlink accessories are only sold through the online Starlink shop. If you are interested in buying accessories from Starlink, you’ll need an active account. More on that in the next section.

For aftermarket accessories, multiple retailers carry the mounts and other products you may need for your system. We recommend searching for the specific product in your favorite search engine, and then selecting the best price from a reputable retailer. 

How Do I Order Official Starlink Accessories?

In this section, we will explain how the ordering process works for official Starlink accessories. One of the most common questions we get involves people trying to order their mounts or ethernet adapter, and not being able to access the Starlink shop. 

Pre-Order Deposits

If you put down the $99 deposit to be put on the Starlink waiting list, you will not be able to order official accessories from the Starlink shop. Once your order is converted to a full order, your account will activate and you will be able to access the online shop to purchase accessories. 

Full Orders

Customers that are eligible for the full Starlink kit order will have access to the Starlink shop. You can purchase mounts and other accessories during or after your initial hardware kit purchase. 

Current customers can always return to the Starlink shop at any time and purchase additional accessories.

Ordering Accessories For Different Starlink Versions

Some of the accessories for one hardware version won’t be compatible with a different hardware version. For example, the Starlink cable for the Standard dish is not compatible with the High Performance dish.

If you just have one Starlink, you’ll be directed to the right accessory page when you visit the shop.

You can view the accessories for each version of dish by going to the Starlink shop dish selection page. Make sure to select your dish to view the accessories that are compatible. 

Final Thoughts

There are many options to choose from when shopping for Starlink accessories. For some things, like the Starlink Ethernet Adapter, you will need to buy from the Starlink shop. For other options, such as mounts or mesh Wifi systems, Amazon and other retailers have plenty of options to choose from. 

We advise people to check out all their options and choose according to your own needs.

  1. I have a Gen 2 but do not have the ethernet accessory I have not set up an account yet, can I go ahead and set up an account and sign in and order the adapter without ordering service until I get the dish mounted?

  2. How do I order accessories as an installer vs user? I have a client who would like me to secure their dish to a flat roof. Thx for the help.

    • I believe most installers create a Starlink account with their own dish, perhaps a used one. You can order any accessories once you have an account. Otherwise, you can have the customer order the accessory on their own account.

  3. Just curious, how much is the aforementioned 150 ft cable from the official shop? I can’t access the shop since I’m still waiting on the dish, and would like to know ahead of time.

  4. I’ve just purchased a residential Starlink kit from Costco which comes with 2 months internet subscription free. I need to purchase some accessories before installing! How do I do this? Thank you

    • You will have to start service and create an account with Starlink before you can order accessories. If you get 2 months free, I’m sure there were additional instructions attached from Costco that explain how to create your Starlink account and claim the 2 months free.

    • With most roofs, there is structural wood right behind the fascia. It’s best to use the lag screws to secure to something structural, but you will have to verify by checking your roof design.

  5. The angled Starlink cable is too wide to fit into the tubes from our roof top to inside the house.
    So I need a straight cable. I don’t find it in the shop.

    • Not sure if you know that the cable on dish side can be removed by squeezing and then pulling the cable out from the dish. This cable folds instinanstrsight line and is much smaller than the big angled plug-in that goes to the router.

  6. Is 150’ the maximum length for a Starlink dish to router cable? My house is in the woods and I’d put my dish on my boathouse roof…210’ away.

    • Yes, 150ft is the max length. I recommend a remote install if there is power available. Then you can run CAT6 cable or use a wireless Ethernet bridge to get the signal to the house. Aftermarket Wi-Fi access points would be required at the house.

  7. Hi,

    I would like with my first residential star link order to add accessories (ethernet adapter and a different mount). How is this possible, since you can only order the basic kit without an already existing account?

    Thank you

  8. Good Day, im curious: Until today SpaceX told us that the Starlink Cable can have a max length of 75ft. Now im reading on you article that there is a 150ft Cable as well. Is this the Starlink Cable which leads from the dish to the PSU? And is Starlink selling these as well? Thank you for your help

    • I talked to someone from SL and he told me that this Cable are just for the “normal” Dishes and not for the High-Performance-Kits.

      Thank you anyway.


    • 150ft is the max cable length that they sell. It is available in the online shop, along with the 75ft cable. The Starlink kits now come with a 50ft cable. Perhaps they misunderstood your question, and were referring to 75ft being the included cable length, not maximum?

  9. Does putting multiple extenders in a linear fashion affect stability of my Starlink internet? Yesterday, I tried to install 3 aftermarket extenders relatively far from each other so that my office’s Starlink network could reach my home (about 50 meters away). I could easily stream videos when it’s connecting, however there would momentary periods where I get zero connection sometimes as long as 30 minutes.

    Right now, I’m contemplating whether I should add some more extenders and put them near each other, or simply get an ethernet adapter

  10. The photo shows the flashing mount angle the same as the dish angle. I need the dish angle to be turned 90 degrees in order to face north. The mount faces west. Is this possible with the products you are citing?

    • The dish can rotate to whatever angle it needs to, so the direction of the mount doesn’t matter. You just need to mount it high enough on the roof that parts of the roof and trees don’t obstruct the view to the north.

  11. Hello, we just got our new Starlink internet. The old Starlink modem had a extra Ethernet port but new one we got it doesn’t. How do I hook up extra modem to this.

    • There is a text form in the sidebar (desktop/tablet browsing), and also a text form at the bottom of each article. If you still can’t find it or the button isn’t working please let me know, I can add your email manually.

  12. Hi, my kids use 2 Ps5 consoles and 1 PS4 console which are all connected by Wi-Fi to round dish Starlink. They are unable to stream games successfully and need a wired connection, is there a solution for multiple Ethernet ports? If I get the Ethernet adapter will that give me a total of 2 ports including the 1 on the router? We have 17 devices connected, 5 phones, 4 iPads, 3 PlayStations, 3 Samsung TVs and 2 Alexa. No problems with normal gaming only when streaming. Thanks for all your previous detailed answers, you’re very helpful.

    • With the round dish you don’t need an Ethernet Adapter. What you need is called a switch. Search for “unmanaged switch” on Amazon or Best Buy or somewhere else. With an unmanaged switch, you plug it into the Starlink router port, and then plug all your devices into the switch.

  13. I want to order starlink for RV but I want to order the ‘Flat Mount Antenna ‘. But how do I make sure I get that and not that and not the standard antenna?

    • During checkout, you have the option of picking the Flat High Performance hardware kit. The flat antenna is $2500, vs $599 for Standard. You can be sure you are ordering the right one based on the price you are paying.

    • You can try to enable Bypass mode, but I’m not 100% sure if the Ethernet would still work. Bypass mode turns off the Wifi functions, but possibly also the routing functions which would also affect Ethernet. Otherwise, I don’t think it’s possible to just disable Wifi on the default Starlink router.

  14. I think my unit is damaged – it’s not adjusting its position. How do I return Starlink? When do they date the 30 days from?

    • What does the app dashboard status tell you? Do you have internet? What do you mean by not adjusting position? When you plug the dish in, it should point straight up after several minutes. After several more minutes, it will align itself as needed. After that, it won’t move at all. If there is a problem with the motors being stuck, the app will give an error message. Can you stow/unstow the dish?

  15. Hi dear friend

    Please introduce us if you have a representative. Send me a message via email .

  17. Hi I just got my starlink dish works great but my home phone is by the voip so I need another port or adapter as the router only has one port is there something I can buy to hook up my phone to the router

  18. I am in Northern WI (Lat 45deg N) with trees all around the house. As I understand it, the antenna will drive to toward the North. Given the tree obstructions and the 100deg FOV requirement, it seems logical that I would mount the antenna as far south (and high) on the roof, so when I pitch northerly, I minimize obstructions. What might be the ‘nominal’ expected pointing from vertical at this location?

    Can I use the Starlink App prior to purchasing the equipment to verify FOV?

    • On the last part, yes, using the App prior to purchasing would be the best way to verify a mounting location. You’ll have to climb up and get your phone close to where the antenna would be mounted. Use the app obstruction tool to visualize if you have any obstructions.

      I’m not sure about how many degrees from vertical the dish would be pointing. It varies by region. But the app obstruction checker will give you the best information for your specific mounting location.

  19. I want to extend my coverage, I have the rectangular version and my knowledge is amateur level, is my best solution –
    1-purchase Starlink mesh
    2-purchase Starlink Ethernet adapter, use a 3rd party modem & extender

  20. I have submitted a ticket but no response 😕 app says offline booting, I have tried resetting everything still have same problem. Not able to connect 😪 any suggestions?

    • Round or rectangle dish? Unplug the power and let it sit for a few minutes. Check the cable connections on both ends. On the rectangle dish, the connector on the dish side sometimes doesn’t get hooked in all the way. It should be flush and look like this:

      Starlink connector

      Has it ever worked before? After several minutes powered up, does the dish move itself into a horizontal position?

  21. I have de round dish I damaged de cable what do I do to change cable do I need to buy square dish with cable being separate

  22. I currently have a dish at my cottage but would like to take advantage of ‘portability’ mode. Does this mean I literally have to buy a new dish and router from starling, as I do not want to move my other one around and if so, where can you order a new dish and router?

    • You can enable Portability on your existing dish, but if you don’t want to move it, then you will have to buy another Starlink kit and pay an additional $135/month for that new line of service. If you wanted to buy a dedicated portable dish, I would recommend Starlink RV instead. Portability is best for people who want to use their single dish for dual purposes, at home and on the go.

      You can order a new dish for Portability or RV by going to the website account page. You can also get there through the app.

  23. I have the new Starlink dish but I have a very long run. I bought 150’ cable from Starlink but it had “male” ends on both ends of cable. The supplied cable from the dish ends in a “male” end.
    I need a connectir that will join two “male” ends together.
    Can I buy that from Starlink?
    Is there any other place to get the correct connector other than Starlink (is it proprietary?)

    • The 150′ cable replaces the included cable. You will have to unplug the original cable from the dish itself, and then plug in the 150′ cable. There is no way to combine the two cables, 150′ is the maximum distance available.

  24. Is it possible to buy a second cable that connects the Starlink box to the round antenna? That would make it easier to take Starlink on the road because mine is secured through a wall and zip tied. What are the specs?

    • With the round dish, you cannot detach the cable from the dish itself. The cable is standard CAT5E. What many people do is buy a 25 or 50 foot CAT5E extension cable (amazon) and route that from the power supply, outside of their home, and into a surge arrestor block like this:

      So your extension cable is running into the house, and then you just plug the Starlink dish cable into the other side of the surge arrestor that is mounted on the outside of the house. When you need to take the dish with you, simply unplug from the surge arrestor.

      Any CAT5E or above cable extension will work for this method. Keep the length as short as possible to avoid signal/power issues. Outdoor rated cable is ideal because part of it will be outside connected to the surge arrestor.

    • Starlink, as it ships, is about as plug and play as it gets. Mounting situations vary, so there is a little bit more involved in the installation of those accessories. But the ethernet adapter, mesh nodes, etc are all pretty much plug and play as well.

  25. From the antenna to the router does it take a special or will standard coax TV cable work? Also do you have a router that will operate off of 12volt DC for those of us in RVs? Anywhere on web site that I can find all the dimensions of the hardware, like antenna and router.

    • It’s a special cable, you cannot use a coax TV cable. Starlink doesn’t offer a 12V DC router at this time. Their website doesn’t list any dimensional information, but I did find the dish itself is 12″x19″ and about 9 lbs (not including mount). I have the older style router so I cannot confirm the dimensions of the new style router. The people over at the Starlink subreddit on Reddit have been helpful for this kind of info, you might ask or search there:
