I hope I posted this in the right place.

I was wondering if you could host a game with a satellite. Since I don't have a router, I have a satellite with cable. :)

Telecommunications satellites are in geosynchronous orbit with Earth. This makes them 42,164km away. Since light travels at 300,000km/sec, this would make latencies (response times) huge, which is really bad for real-time purposes such as SRB2 servers.
