Attorney Docket: 57132.000008 

LISTING OF CLAIMS: 

Please cancel claims 1, 5-7, 11-13, 17, and 18 without prejudice. 
Please add claims 27-32 as indicated below. 

A listing of the status of all claims 1-32 in the present patent application is provided 

below. 

1-18. (Cancelled) 

19. (Withdrawn) A method for transmitting data, said method comprising the steps of: 
providing data for transmission to a recipient; 

selecting and addressing a first set of data for transmission to said recipient via a first 
transmission method, and 

selecting and addressing a second set of data for transmission to said recipient via a 
second transmission method. 

20. (Withdrawn) The system of claim 19 above, wherein said first set of data is selected 
and addressed for transmission via a wired data transmission network and said second set of data 
is selected and addressed for transmission via a satellite transmission system. 

21. (Withdrawn) The system of claim 20 above, wherein said the first and second sets of 
data are selected and addressed for transmission via the Internet and further wherein the first set 
of data is addressed to follow a first transmission path and the second set of data is addressed to 
follow a second transmission path.

22. (Withdrawn) The system of claim 19 above, wherein said first set of data is 
addressed to be transmitted via a first frequency and said second set of data is addressed to be 
transmitted via a second frequency. 

23. (Withdrawn) The system of claim 19 above, wherein said first set of data is 
designated to be transmitted at a first time and said second set of data is designated to be 
transmitted at a second time. 

24. (Previously Presented) A method for requesting and securely receiving data from the 
Internet, said method comprising the steps of: 

receiving a request for data; 

collecting data in response to said request; 

packetizing said collected data into at least two sets of data packets, wherein a first set of 
data packets comprises encrypted data and a second set of data packets comprises a key for 
decoding said encrypted data; 

selecting and addressing said first set of data packets for transmission at a first 
transmission time via a first channel of a transmission mode at a first frequency, and 
automatically attaching a first address to said first set of data packets; 

selecting and addressing said second set of data packets for transmission at a second 
transmission time via a second channel of the transmission mode at a second frequency, wherein

the second transmission time is different from the first transmission time and the second 

frequency is different from the first frequency; 

transmitting said first set of data packets via said first channel; and 
transmitting said second set of data packets via said second channel, 

25. (Previously Presented) A computer readable medium executing and storing a 
software application for enabling requesting and securely receiving data from the Internet, said 
software application comprising: 

one or more instructions for receiving a request for data; 

one or more instructions for collecting data in response to said request; 

one or more instructions for packetizing said collected data into at least two sets of data 
packets, wherein a first set of data packets comprises encrypted data and a second set of data 
packets comprises a key for decoding said encrypted data; 

one or more instructions for selecting and addressing said first set of data packets for 
transmission at a first transmission time via a first channel of a transmission mode at a first 
frequency, and automatically attaching a first address to said first set of data packets; 

one or more instructions for selecting and addressing said second set of data packets for 
transmission at a second transmission time via a second channel of the transmission mode at a 
second frequency, wherein the second transmission time is different from the first transmission 
time and the second frequency is different from the first frequency; 

one or more instructions for transmitting said first set of data packets via said first 
channel; and

Application No. 10/667,329 
Attorney Docket No. 57132.000008 



one or more instructions for transmitting said second set of data packets via said second 
channel. 

26. (Previously Presented) A system for requesting and securely receiving data, said 
system comprising: 

a first computing element for receiving a request for data; 

a second computing element for collecting data in response to said request; wherein said 
second computing element packetizes said collected data into at least two sets of data packets, 
wherein a first set of data packets comprises encrypted data and a second set of data packets 
comprises a key for decoding said encrypted data; 

a first transmission system for transmitting said first set of data from said second 
computing element to said first computing element at a first transmission time via a first channel 
of a transmission mode at a first frequency, and automatically attaching a first address to said 
first set of data packets; 

a second transmission system for transmitting said second set of data from said second 
computing element to said first computing element at a second transmission time via a second 
channel of the transmission mode at a second frequency, wherein the second transmission time is 
different from the first transmission time and the second frequency is different from the first 
frequency.

27. (New) The method of claim 24, wherein the transmission mode is a satellite delivery 
system comprised of a network processing center with an associated provider antenna and at 
least one subscriber terminal with an associated subscriber antenna. 

28. (New) The method of claim 27, wherein the satellite delivery system further 
comprises a satellite. 

29. (New) The computer readable medium of claim 25, wherein the transmission mode 
is a satellite delivery system comprised of a network processing center with an associated 
provider antenna and at least one subscriber terminal with an associated subscriber antenna. 

30. (New) The computer readable medium of claim 29, wherein the satellite delivery 
system further comprises a satellite. 

31. (New) The system of claim 26, wherein the transmission mode is a satellite delivery 
system comprised of a provider antenna at a provider location for communicating via satellite 
signals to a subscriber antenna. 

32. (New) The system of claim 31, wherein the satellite delivery system further 
comprises a satellite.
