    I have moved my cable modem/router into the same audio cabinet as my HD DVR. Is there a way to internet connect them without having to run another coax cable from the SWM splitter outside the house into the broadband DECA? Since they are right next to each other, I'd like to use a splitter for the existing coax line going into the HD DVR to split into the broadband deca, or put a switch on the ethernet side of the DECA going into the HD DVR and connect to the router, but don't know if either way will work.

    Right behind the receiver (between the wall and the receiver's DECA), install a green 2-way splitter. One output of the splitter to the receiver DECA (or if a H24/HR24-directly to the receiver). The other output of the splitter goes to the Broadband DECA.

    Does anyone know the frequency range for the networking channel on a SWM system? All the training materials list tuner 1-8 freaquencies and the channel assignment frequency, but nothing as it pertains to networking over coax.

    In an SWM system, you need to have full bandwidth between 2MHz and 1.8GHz. DECA resides at 500-600MHz.
