    Connecting hopper to wireless internet - with a twist

    I have a new Dish setup. Just installed yesterday.
    Currently I have ATT wireless internet. The hopper is wired to the gateway.
    I'm planning to discontinue att internet and use my 4g android phone, which is wifi tether capable, as my sole internet connection.

    Dishnet's online tech support (live chat) said I can use the netgear USB wireless adapter to connect to a standard wifi network, but that it won't work with a phone.
    Is that true?
    Is there a work around?

    good news.
    Are there any other adapter options besides that Netgear DN suggests?

    You could use a gaming adapter if you wanted to... Although I don't recommend replacing your DSL with tethering.

    Does your phone do adhoc? I use WiFi Tether on my rooted Android phone and it won't work with some devices

    I hope the OP has an unlimited data plan. The standard 2GB will be eaten up in no time as the household's only 'net connection.
    FYI:
    -It's "couldn't care less", not "could care less".
    -It's "would've", "should've", and "could've", not "would of", "should of", and "could of".
    -It's "voila!", not "walla!" (That's right. You've been speaking French all this time.)
    -The first word in each sentence should be capitalized.
    -A period goes at the end of each sentence.
    -Commas are also a good idea, on occasion.
