It appears that your 44 is connected via Coax from your Access Point, and not via its WiFi.
You can remove the CCK (access point) and pop an ethernet cable into the jack on the HR44.
Both the 24 and 44 have internal DECAs.
Hmmm, I might be a little confused still. I have one of those DECA units (I think it is white that has a coax going in to it and then Ethernet coming out and going to my primary router. I have another router, setup as an Access Point in my living room so I could hardwire my TV and PS3 so that has a couple of ports still available. There are no connections to the HR44 or HR24 other than coax. So by internal DECA, do you mean that the units use the one coax cable connected to it to also connect to the internet?
The HR44 is right by my access point and the HR44 is in our bedroom not near the access point (or that white box DECA). Is that white box DECA even necessary anymore? The receivers that I have are the HR44, HR24 and C41.
