Thanks guys, you proved my point. I am not a computer guy and had a heck of a time setting up my home network three years ago. My DSL modem didn’t have a router, the same situation for other cable modems at the time also. While I agree things have improved immensely over the last three years in regards to router setup, there are still issues that arise (as exhibited on these forums wrt HR2x networking). Firewall conflicts and MAC filter use can stop the computer illiterate in their tracts and lead to frustration. I don’t view hooking up the HR2x to a network as “plug and play” like was described by Supervolcano as user’s home networks vary.
