    The wired CCK doesn't need to be attached to a DirecTV receiver. It needs to be connected to a coax cable connected to a SWM splitter and an Ethernet cable connected to the Internet. If you can run a coax cable to your your router, you can install the CCK right there, even if there is no other DirecTV equipment in the room.

    It's ironic that you replied to my post when you did because I just received a Deca Broadband from Directv. I guess Tech Support sent it based on my call to them a few days ago. Now what do I do with that and is it better or worse than a wired CCK?

    The DECA BB is a "wired CCK"

    as I mentioned earlier on this thread, you can either run a cable from your router location to any where there is a DirecTV coax, or run an ethernet cable to the Genie

    Am I correct in thinking that this end of the adapter connects to the SWM splitter with a short length of coax?

    Yes; There are labels right near the connectors. the top connector (Towards LNB) connects to the line that is coming from the dish (your splitter) and the bottom (Sat Rcvr/Power) connects either to a Receiver or to the power adapter.

    Connection is made to the out terminal on the splitter, correct? If so, I just need to get a SWM splitter and a short coax with connectors on both ends and I should be good to go.
