Another name is "Game Adapter."
It's called an ethernet bridge. ...

Another option is that the VIP722 (and many other Dish Receivers) has a Zyxel Powerline adapters built it.
I picked up a PL-100 for $18 and plugged it into a spare output on my router, instantly my VIP 722 and both my VIP211K all had internet access. The 211k's don't seem to use it, but my VIP722 can now download and I can program it remotely.
NOTE: These do not work well with surge protectors, so you may have to plug your 722 directly into an outlet.

Just one. The VIP receivers have the unit built into them. Again, you may not be able to go this route if you use a surge protector or UPS.
So would you need two of these then?? ...

First one I got for $23.99 (minus cashback) from buy.com.
I got a 2nd one for my Hava on eBay for $21 (minus eBay bucks).

This allows all the devices in my AV cabinet to connect online.
PS: the thing is ridiculously tiny. An amazingly versatile little device, as I'm only using it in 1 of the 4 ways it can be used.

I recommend D-Link DAP-1522 which can be used as either a wireless AP or bridge and has a 4-port switch. I use one in my living room to connect my ViP622 and a VoIP phone to my wireless home network.
Brilliant piece of kit. I use one to connect not only the 722 but also the BluRay DVD player to my network. Easy to setup and very secure using WPA2.
Have another one connecting several desktop PCs and a third connecting the XBox360, because they are all in rooms too far away from the router and I didn't want cables trailing through the house.
