What do you mean to share the internet connection? I don't follow. The genie doesn't need to be connected to the internet as far as I know, I don't know what the sharing you are referring to is, and I don't think whole home service has anything to do with internet. But I could be wrong. I do have a wired internet connection plugged into the hd-dvr right now (and what will be the genie) if that makes any difference. Ah yea very good points. I think I'll do that then.
