Currently I add power and the internet connection into the coax in my wiring closet like so:


[Dish] -> [splitter] -> [power inserter] -> [deca adapter] -> [ethernet port on router]


If I want to add the wireless video bridge into this setup can I just do this:


[Dish] -> [splitter] -> [power inserter] -> [wireless video bridge] -> [deca adapter] -> [ethernet port on router]

Yes, you can put it inline here or on any spare port of a splitter.

We don't own the hotel . . . We don't know when we check out!

Wonder what is the loss through the WVB.  Don t have one yet to play with

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

IIRC it's about 3dB

Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect

I haven't seen one yet either, "but" if it's like the wireless CCK, there is an internal 2-way splitter feeding the output.

That seems like a lot of insertion loss over an above the splitter loss that Shadow/VOS notes. Then you have to consider the return and splitter losses on the DECA splitter.
