    Los...
    Say, does anyone have any idea why a USB DECA (DCAU1R0-01) would have an assigned IP address via DHCP on my LAN and apparently even has an embedded web utility at that address? (Don't know the user/PW login info. to actually see the web page though).

    Just noticed this after an LAN scan of my home network from a Network Analyzer app and was curious is all.

    I realize the DCCK-W (DCAW1R0-01) has this feature, but not a simple USB DECA.

    I'm confused by the question...

    Why wouldn't a network client get an IP from your router? That's all a DECA is, really...

    Keep in mind that DECAs absolutely need to be able to be on your LAN - best case in point is RVU. An RVU TV will possibly *only* have a DECA connection to the internet (via the Genie or one of the other DirecTV bridges).

    First that's NOT a USB DECA - It's a LAN DECA and it has a web address for the reason to talk to any other Directv receivers so as to share internet content and Display Wholehome content over a RG6 Network.

    It can also be use to connect to your LAN/Switch standalone to get all internet traffic to a rg6 network
