We had a tech come out and install an HR44 Genie. He disconnected the CAT6 cables that ran to our pair of HR22/100 DVR's as he used the new DECA single wire adapters with integrated RJ45 connector. The problem is he didn't add another DECA between the SWM16 and the router for internet traffic. I want WAN access as well for PPV, YouTube, etc.
1) What port on the SWM16 do I use for attaching this third DECA?
2) Also, because there is a power supply required for a stand alone DECA module, can it be connected directly to the SWM or should it be on the other side of a splitter?
3) Once I add internet access to DirecTV's Ethernet over coax network can I still use the Ethernet pass thru ports (ETH2) on the older DVR's?. These were really handy for hardwiring game consoles vs wireless.
I called a CSR tonight to ask if the 3rd DECA should have been installed and they replied no. I did find them on Amazon for $10.
