    I am just saying that any device connected to the wga600n or wet610n will never get full wireless n speeds.

    the 100baseT port limits the device connected to it to 100mbps.

    windows would not say your are connected at 300 mbps it will say you are connected at 100 mbps.

    Perhaps the discussion about dorfd1's choice of wireless hardware vs. HDTVFan0001's speed can go to private message?

    Holy Sweetness Salamander! That is one fine first look Drew. I think you nailed it, this is one excellent combination for DirecTV!

    Very fine job indeed! I know that it has freed up outlets that I needed and its extremely reliable and fast. Works great with TvApps, MediaShare, and DOD. Great job to the everyone that was involved in testing!

    Just to verify since I ran out and bought one. I don't need to run the CD/setup in the installation guide?
    I simply plug it in to the DVR?
    And do I need to wait until I get the 0x0368 update before installing it on my HR22?
    Thanks

    You need x0368 for it to be configured via the receiver. Then simply plug it into the HR2x after the WET610N has been powered up and the menus will pop up for configuration. Simple as pie!

    If you've previously configured your receiver for networking, you may have to restore your network setup to default first.

    Yes. If you follow the instructions and the pics its will do the whole installation from the receiver. Just check the FAQ's in case you have security password issues.

    Once you connect it, go to Network Setup and it will look for the switch, configure it, and it will even ask for the pass phrase if necessary.

    True but I figured that since it was in the previous two posts it would be redundant...but important. :D

    WAP610N - The perfect partner to the Wireless-N Ethernet Bridge (WET610N), it's optimized to reduce video glitches.

    Both WAP610N and WET610N are based on same (super) chip-set.

    Technical:

    The chip-set supports optional standard features as well as proprietary algorithms to meet the critical demands required for sensitive multimedia applications that require superior bandwidth and the lowest possible jitter, latency and packet loss. To double network coverage in a home environment, the chip-set solution also features a Maximum Likelihood (ML) slicer and an advance-coding gain using Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) technology. The ML slicer provides benefits equivalent to those of Transmit Beam Forming, only without the pendency problems associated with the latter since it is implemented within the digital signal processing portion of the transmitter.

    They were indeed reported to work very well together.

    My WET610N and DLink DIR-655 also play nicely in the same sandbox, and also get great results on video/audio transfer.

    Thanks. That was exactly what I was looking for. I think I'll pick up a WET610N and give it a whirl.

    Is this what you get if you order thru Directv? They don't say what it is, other than wireless.

    You'd have to call them to make sure...they are pretty new.

    But a number of retailers have them available as well...

    Today I hooked back up my WET610N. I did a complete reset of it but not of my HR22-100. It immediately brought up the list from my HR21-700. It must have configured its self automatically. Playback from the HR21 to the HR22 was fine. Playback the other way is very choppy.

    Nice. I have been using one for MONTHS now. Works great. Good to see support from Directv now.
