    Well I did not only because I could swear when I looked it up on the router web page it said .19 was the highest range! I will check again when I get home

    It says my range is .10 thru .19 so am I correct in saying 24 and 34 should do the trick?

    Great thank you for your patience with me:) and for all the help. One last question should the cck perform just as well connected to my HR20-100 as it does with my HR24. Or should I leave it with the HR24

    The CCK is not really working with any of your receivers. It is just bridging your home network to then DECA cloud. I'm guessing that at your HR24 there was an Ethernet cable available to use for the CCK so that was just an easy place to install it. It can really go anywhere.

    But yes I did use an ethernet hard wired to the 24 before whole home was activated. I was just thinking with the 20 since it has the external deca and a splitter with a bsf that there would be less problems going at the 24 location. I would like ideally to have it where my 20 is as it would be more hidden. but since it is just a bridge I will move it to the 20 location

    If its a WiFi enabled CCK (W-CCK) using a wireless connection to the router and hooked up by means of the coax thru-line option, then no ethernet cable is necessary.

    If its a W-CCK type CCK using the coax thru-line hook up option, it may be placed at any convenient place on the satellite coax network, whether near or far (or somewhere in between) from any of the receivers.

    to quote reply #3:

    To add to what The Merg says is it time to look at upgrading your router (wireless?)? What do you have?

    Your post might imply that you were thinking about getting a HR34 - if so be aware that the HR34 can be plugged into your ethernet network and provide the network connection for all of the DVRs on a SWiM. No CCK required.
    __________________


    it was my understanding that even with the H34 you needed a CCK
    is that not correct ? so no deca or cck is required with the HR34 ?

    I am having installed first part of next week and was told they would use the cck

    thanks

    I should note that the hr34 will be installed with 3 additional clients
    with whdvr service

    The standard install is to use a CCK even with a HR34 install, however it is not needed. Most installers do not know that you can use the HR34 in place of a CCK. Of course, this only works if you have an Ethernet cable to your router that is at the HR34 install location. If not, you will either have a coax installed where there is an Ethernet cable available or they would use the wireless CCK if it is still available.

    You should be happy with that setup.
