    Is it possible to connect an USB ethernet adapter to the back of a Genie Client?

    I want to put a client in a location that does not have coax.

    My current setup consists of a HR-34 with two clients (c-31 and c-41) connected over coax. These would stay the same.

    The receivers are connected via Coax with an Ethernet Coax adapter (DECA1) connected to bridge to my network.

    Thanks

    Use a Wireless Connection Kit with a standard Genie client.
    Genie cient to WCCK connection is via coax, then WCCK has a wireless connection to your router.
    Works well for me, I prefer it to the C41W/WVB combo.

    After reading your post, I figured a solution.

    Using a wired CCK with a power supply I was able to connect it to the mini client. It worked over ethernet.

    Thanks

    Would you mind explaining how? the clients don't have ethernet ports....

    I have used an old ICK to connect up an H25 and later a client before. As long as you have a wired Ethernet port and either a two way splitter anda BSF or a proper Diplexer it works fine.

    Right, TS mentioned "Using a wired CCK" meaning one. So I wonder....

    I was correcting my prior post when this came through. I have used the wired ICK to run a client off Ethernet just fine. The client sees its connection on the coax side as if it were native DECA. This assumes there is another ICK/CCK bridging the coax and switched Ethernet fabrics at some point.

    Easy, Ethernet back to coax with a powered deca or broadband cck.
