    Do you have a router installed already?

    If so, are you able to run a network cable from the router to the HR20?

    If you have hi speed internet and a router all you need to do is plug your HR20 into it. Then do the network setup on your HR20 and your done.

    It could be as easy as:

    Run a network line from your HR20 to your router.
    Go to Menu>Help&Settings>Setup>Network ... then Connect Now.

    If you don't have a router, you'll need one.
    If you want to connect via wireless or powerline, we can help.

    Let us know more about your setup and we'll do what we can!

    Would I be correct in thinking that connecting my HR-20 to my router via hard wire as opposed to wireless would be a much preferred setup given the amount of data required for a DoD download? Has anyone benchmarked the time require to grab a 1 hour show via wired or wireless?

    It does not matter how you hook it up. Wired or wireless will be faster then you will be able to download over the internet anyway.

    But if you can wire it I would do it that way because it will be much easier and faster to set up.

    o.k. guys - I really need some help on setup. I have Brighthouse Roadrunner (broadband); Linksys router; HR20 (3). Now, for further info, I am 82 years young and please keep the info as simple as possible! I am not able to hardwire the connection between the router & HR20 so I will have to use a wireless system. I am assuming the wireless connection is an ethernet receiver which is plugged into the ethernet plug on the rear of the HR20. If this is correct, what receiver should I get, approximate price, and where can it be purchased? By the way, the router is presently used to connect my laptop to the HP Media Center PC. Thanks in advance for your help.
