Well, what I was considering doing is connecting my Netgear router via an ethernet (50') that itself is connected to my 2Wire router/modem. For example, the master bedroom, located on the other side of my apt. from where the 2Wire router is, has an ethernet cable running to it. This one is connected to an HR24 receiver. So is it OK to remove that connection and instead connect it to the Netgear router, then from the Netgear, simply connect another (albeit shorter) ethernet cable to the HR24? This would accomplish two things: keeping the HR24 hard-wired connected and boost my wireless signal in the master BR.
