tks for responding - it is a thumb drive looking device that wirelessly connects the 722 to the computer - are we talking about the same device? the 722 is in a different part of the house so i cant use and ethernet cable to connect them.

tks,

gil

Using the Sling Adapter and the NetGear LAN Adapter in a non-powered hub won't work because the Sling Adapter steps all over the LAN adapter. I had the same situation and decided to use the front USB connector when I want to use the Sling Adapter which isn't often given the limited functionality of the Sling (IMO).
I don't know if this addresses your situation.

Anyone could start troubleshooting on Win PC using USBDeview.exe program from nitsoft.net by connecting his hub and all the gears with it to the PC.
You could see what Power require each of your device, so a sum of those shouldn't exceed 500 mA per DVR's port (if it follow common sense as PC manufacturers).

Please, could we have serious posts that are actually helpful to the average users who are seeking help instead of the self aggrandizement?

For the very few times I use the Sling Adapter, the front USB port works for me. If you want to keep the SA connected I can see not wanting to use the front port. As for switching out your 622 for a 722, that can be frustrating if you go through the 800-number CSR's. Check with one of the Dish IRT folks here to see if they can facilitate an upgrade such as that. If they can't help you, PM me.
