Thats a nice piece of equipment it will make installs much easier
I've had that (WPS) on some other equipment I've used and I agree, it is super easy to use and get running. Just press the button.
Nice first look;
And this will indeed be a Godsend (a reasonable price permitting of course) for those WHDVR installs where a dedicated coax run to the router/switch location for internet access to the DECA cloud is either impracticable or undesired by the customer.
But while it may be an obvious assumption given that the WCCK is essentially a merger between the current DirecTV wireless-N connection bridge and a BB DECA. Shouldn't there be some mention anyway in the first look as to whether the WiFi link is Wireless-N or not?
Or does it simply go without saying nowadays since wireless-G is simply obsolete and never used on any newly produced WiFi certified devices?
Thanks, Doug and 'Fan for the dimensions.
Can one pop an ethernet connection off it to another device?
I could of used this on my in-laws recent install. I hooked up their wired kit using a powerline adapter. The wireless kit would of simplified things.
It's actually going to cost $80 but in some cases will be free.
WOW!! That looks like something that I can use. I have the WHDVR service, but for some reason the tech did not hook up the Cinema Kit because he thought our 6 meg connection was too slow... This looks like it might solve the issue of having another wire running in crazy places... CC
Sounds like you tech was uninformed, 6Mbps for DIRECTV on Demand is just fine. If you can get a coax pull to where your router is that's the preferred way but if not then this is a good alternative.
It is either the 5Ghz N band or the 2.4Ghz band. Works great!
Here's the back view...
...I think you'll find your answer there.
Oh, yes, I saw there was a port! P'raps shoulda axed, "Does the ethernet port act like a bridge so that you can use it to output your home network to another device (such as an enabled TV)?"
so this replaces the need of using a CISCO/LINKSYS WET610N 10/100 ?
Yes, plus it can be used as a wireless broadband DECA, one box can do two things.
So if we have a reciever with built-in DECA we can use the extra coaxial for our net-enabled tvs if those tv's do not have built-in wireless ?
So with DECA is in the reciever, it is not used on this box at all ?
You could by it may cost more then using the adapter the TV manufacture sells. Or just get a broadband DECA and 2 way splitter to connect the TV to the DECA network, assuming that your DECA network is already connected to your router.
For the second question, this box can do two things, one is to provide a wireless network connetion for a receiver that doesn't have whole home DVR service. The other is to provide a connection from a DECA network to a wireless router if there is no coax connetion near the router.
By the way, special thanks to hdtvfan0001 who took the pix. Great job!
How about a sling box? Does anyone think you would be able to connect a sling box to this port?
It's not designed for that but it could work.
Lots of folks do their thing to help on the test teams. Glad I could do my little part.
