Need help on what to get to connect Hopper to internet
We switched from local cable to Dish a few weeks ago, right after the Hopper came out. We have one hopper in our living room and one joey in our bedroom. We were one of the first people in our area to get the hopper and the tech didn't know too much about it yet. He told me that it couldn't be connected to the internet or work with a sling.
I want to connect the hopper to the internet so we can stream blockbuster. I only need it to the hopper, not the joey (but wouldn't mind if it worked with the joey too). I have tried searching other posts to figure it out on my own, but it's not clear to me yet. We don't have hard-wired internet connection near the hopper or joey. We have a wireless router in our loft and we still get internet service from our local cable provider so it has a coax cable going to it. Not sure if this matters, but it's pretty fast, I just did a speed test to my laptop and download was 45.1 Mbps.
That's about all I know. Is that enough info for someone to tell me what to get? I saw the HIC and WiFi BB Connector at the Dish Store but not sure which one is correct.
Thanks so much!
