I just built a new house and had the entire place wired for CAT6 networking. I have a Genie in the living room and 3 HR24s in other bedrooms. I have SWIM 16 installed. The installer left without installing the "connected home adapter" (I'm guessing it's the DECA Broadband).


Question is, can you (and would you) just plug the ethernet cable into the back of the Genie for internet access? Or would you use the DECA Broadband adapter? If you used the ethernet cable to the back of the genie, would I need to plug in other ethernet cables into the back of each HR24?


Currently my internet acces is 110 down and 11 up

Yep, just plug in the ethernet and run the network setup on the Genie.  The other units should pick it up over the coax.

I'd second that.  I've been using an Ethernet connection from a small switch in my LR entertainment center plugged into a 34.

When I had my HR44 installed, I removed my CCK and connected Ethernet directly to my Genie.  I then used the Ethernet wire that was previously connected to the CCK (in a different room than the one where the Genie was installed) to connect a new GenieGo to my network.

I personally like using a wired CCK, which is separate from the Genie and keeps all receivers connected even if the HR44 is restarted, locked up etc.

And do not double up by connecting both ways! Your instinct was on the money.

Yep, I prefer this way as well.

Here’s to the crazy ones.

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