    Hey Forum,

    I have an HR-21 and HR-23 with WHDVR active. Each receiver has a DECA box on the back. I want to set up a wired internet connection. The receiver in the LR has a 4-port Ethernet switch near it with an available port. The junction box in my utility room houses the Satellite cable splitter, power inserter and my Internet Router which also has an available port.

    At which location would be best to make the connection and what hardware will I need?

    How about this (forgive my noobness); a DECA at the junction box connected to the router? Split the power inserter??

    Thx,

    JM

    i have learned that if can wire to a device its best to.wirelessly you can not get the same speed as you would if wired.

    This is an interesting assertion I've not seen anyone make here.
    What specifics back this up? I presume your own experience. If so, with what?

    Sorry, I completely misread your post!

    You'd need a Cinema Connection Kit (CCK), and you can insert it just about anywhere on the DECA's coax.

    I would prefer the CCK at the router, less "hops" for the "signal"

    is NOT about speeds, as a decent "n" connection can handle a 300Mbps throughput. Is about reliability, wireless signals can be susceptible to a lot of interference
