While this is technically possible, I don't think this solution is reliable. YMMV

It's not a supported configuration, but some folks have been able to make it work. Much will depend on the quality of your wireless connection.

HD DVRs: HR44 + AM21; HR24
Receivers: H25-500 HD Receiver
Mobile Devices: Nomad

Basically you need to have your receivers connected to your home network. This can be done with another wifi decades or Ethernet cable to an hd/dvr(not a 24) and then with the c31 you would use the coax out to hook to the c31. If your wifi deca is already configured for your wireless you should be good or use the wps. I think you could also preconfigure it with an hd/dvr also.

My setup: HR 44, HR34, 2x HR 24, 2x HR 23-700, 4x C31's, Nomad...

I bought a CCK-W (WiFi DECA), wired it to my network to configure it for my 5GHz 802.11n network for less interference from neighboring networks (I'm in a condo and can see at least 10 other 2.4GHz networks from my unit). The CCK-W has a web interface for configuring the wireless network settings. Then, as previously stated, connected coax from the CCK-W to the C31 and it works great. My HR34 is wired in to the network via the ethernet port, not a DECA.

Just for fun, before I had the CCK-W, I tried a wired DECA connected to an 802.11g bridge and the C31. That also worked although it occasionally dropped out due to the speed of the network and possibly interference from neighboring networks.
