    I have the HR24-500 receiver and want to connect to my router. I am hardwired, Directv didn't set me up last July and they sent me the DECA Broadband Adapter DECABB1MR0-01 today. I don't think I have everything I need to make this connection. Can you explain te connection equipment needed and the layout of doing so?

    Thanks

    Since hardwired just run the network setup in the menu to test to see if it can see the internet. Once it passes you are good to go. I have my boxes hardwired to my router with no problems.

    This is really bizarre. Do you have a standalone HR24 with SWM? If so, D* typically demands professional installation on that CCK. Before I say anything more, I really need to know if you have a SWM setup and where your Power Inserter is located.

    My question was for dpolland, the thread starter. I am curious about his setup since D* does not allow you to just buy the CCK he mentioned without a professional install. I think he is confusing us all with his simple question. To give him a reasonable answer we really need to know what kind of receivers he has and what kind of setup. Too many posters ask simple questions, then really confuse the issue by adding additional equipment to the mix and causing a whole lot of incorrect answers until the system configuration is clear. This is his first post so he doesn't know that he has to be clear about his whole setup in order to get a reasonable answer.

    I also have a standalone Hr24-500, which I would like to connect to the internet. Is it possible to connect one end of a Cat5 Ethernet cable to the back of my router, and the other end to the back of my DVR, or must I purchase some other equipment to make this possible. Directv says I need a CCK for $80 to connect wirelessly, but I'd rather just use a hardwired connection. I don't know what a DECA is and I'm assuming SWM is referring to the type of dish I have, which is the oval shaped HD mounted on a pole outside. Like I said, my DVR model is HR24 500 and I only have the one box. My router is a Belkin dual-band router and I just have Comcast's basic cable internet service. When I connected the box to the router directly via cat5, Dtv network setup menu said there was a connection error, but when I do the same thing with my laptop, the internet works just fine. Dtv tech said it was because Comcast has a firewall, but I don't buy that. I'm doing something wrong..

    UOSunshine,
    Yes, you can plug the cat5 cable directly into the back of your HR24. No, Comcast does not appear to have issues when you have a wired connection. There are some issues with their wireless service.

    You need to do a bit of troubleshooting on your connection. Open a command window on your laptop and enter the command ipconfig. Notice the addresses you have for your IPv4 Address and Default Gateway. If you see numbers starting with 192.168.x.x. you have a class "c" network setup. But, if you have 10 as the first digit of your address you have a Class A private network which Comcast has decided to adopt and your D* receiver may not be able to adjust to getting this address. Before I go further, take a look at your addressing and let us know so that we can get a better resolution.
    Bob
