Right, but why would you want to? The CD setup wizard has a step that says, "If your router has a button like this [shows a recycle type icon] press that button on your router and then click [here] for WiFi protected setup. Otherwise, click SKIP to manually enter the info." IMHO, since DIRECTV is looking to make the installation of the wireless bridge as easy as possible, the HR2x onnscreen setup should include a similar option to use WiFi Protected setup. It prevents the user from having to key-in or select several values and/or options (SSID, security mode, encryption type, passphrase), any of which incorrectly entered will cause the wireless bridge not to connect to the network.
