    How do I make my Hopper recognize my USB adapter???
    I go to broadband connection and the only selectable option is MoCa which is not what I have.
    It won't let me choose Wireless...how does this receiver recognize my USB wifi adapter?

    Kind of a long shot but what kind of adapter are you using? Was it sent to you by Dish or left by an installer? Not all are compatible, usually if that is the case it will give a popup when you plug it in.

    And when I plug it in I don't get any messages, not even it saying it's not compatible. It's like nothin is plugged in.

    That's your problem. It will only work with the Dish supported adapter, a Netgear something. You can get it from Dish's website.

    Are you serious? The tech told me that any wireless adapter would work...

    The tech should have left you an adapter as part of the free installation. Connectivity pays dividends for installers, it was in his/her best interest to do so. Call Dish Network and see if they will send you one, might even be free. You're looking for the Netgear WNDA3100V2.

    The @Dish_Answers twitter team told me my tech was wrong so they are sending me the USB Adapter for free.
    Dish rocks and the Hopper and Joey do too!
