DECA uses the same coax cable that's used for connecting the receivers to the dish for the network connection and the HR24/H24's have the DECA adapter built into them. Look at the Connected Home subforum here for more info.
See post My Setup for configuration info.

The HR2X and H21/22/24 receivers all have built on support for the Linksys WGA600N adapter.
These will work nicely. I have a couple that I happen not be be using.

I agree with this on a couple of points.
The cost of a DECA install is about $20 more then the wireless adapter would be.... and that would cover all your equipment, not just the one.
IMHO, if someone is just putting together a network for MRV, DECA is a much better option; especially considering future DirecTV hardware.
At the very least I would recommend a wired network. It ensures the best possible MRV perfromance.
My 2¢ FWIW.
Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth. That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

There's some good information on that topic here:
Has anyone else had trouble getting the WGA600N to work with the HR24? I have tried the connect several times, but it keeps coming right back again to connect.
