There's really no difference between what you call a broadband DECA and a receiver DECA. The DECA used for connecting to your router has a power supply that connects to the IRD (receiver) port. Both of them have cable ports that need to connect to the SWM, and both have ethernet ports.
The Wireless DECA is a different beast.

Connect Coax Cable to Broadband Deca CCK
Connect the other end of the coax cable to your SWM Splitter where the other sattelite cables all connect to.
Connect the Blue Ethernet Cable to the CCK and a wireless router.
I did the install myself. It is may be a pain in the ass installing if you don't have training from DTV on installing it as I received. Here are some pictures: The CCK and the router: http://tinypic.com/r/2ed4eiv/6 The white coax cable is going to the SWM Splitter which looks like: http://forums.direct... Splitter 8 way and the blue ethernet cable is going to the wireless router. The red tip on that splitter is connecting to the SWM power inserter btw. Be careful not to get shocked as the swm splitter has a live electrical current going to it from the power inserter that is plugged into an electrical outlet. Some customers I came across have no idea where their splitter is located, if you are one of them you are better off getting a service tech to do it. Also if you are one of the customers where the installer was silly using a 3 way instead of a 6 way splitter you need them to come out as their isn't going to be anywhere for the coax to go to and you need an installer to come out and upgrade the splitter.
