A router and a server are completely different. A router is not required with an HR34, or for RVU functionality. While D* hasn't released the specific connectivity options for the HR34 I think the concept you're missing is this: The HR34 has Deca; by connecting a broadband Deca to the HR34 you can hook up as many ethernet RVU clients as you like. That also leaves the option for a D* RVU client with Deca built-in. These clients can have the HR34 coaxial cable run directly for connectivity. There's no need for a router in these scenarios.
