I'll go even further and say that the distributors who sell to DIRECTV dealers aren't selling them yet either.

Just ordered my c41w to replace one wired client. $99. flat including server and install. So cool. I guess no self install allowed if going through directv.

Beware that changing your order will change your scheduled date as well.

If you're doing a self install by ordering directly from a vendor like SolidSignal you might want to check out the white paper that's posted in thread http://www.dbstalk.c...ps-white-paper/.


See post My Setup for configuration info.

I called to request the C41W but like you said, they would have to change my install date. But, the rep did say that it was a strong possibility that the tech would have some on his truck when he comes. If he does, the tech could change the order for me and install the wireless unit. Maybe I will get lucky.

Very unlikely the installer will have wireless clients at this point.  to start, not all techs are "trained" to install the wireless units and as such wireless clients activities can't be assigned to them.  if you want one for sure, you must change the order through DirecTV otherwise you will have a better chance to win the lottery, unless you lived in one of the areas that were BETA market for these clients

Sort of confused on the solid signal page. It says DirecTV will charge a one time $99 wireless fee to activate? Is that true? Bad enough they charge a monthly receiver (it's not a receiver) fee but also a one time rip off fee???

Most businesses charge what they charge. If you consider that you're being ripped off, you should go with other options.

Yes, right now it is $99 for the install of the equipment, it is new, officially came out nationwide Wednesday, March 12, 2014.  Give it time, and it will be free like right at the start of the NFL season, they did the same with SWiM when it first came out, I believe it was a $150 install fee.

the way I see it is a "convinience" fee as most of the times they will give you the wired client free
