Please help!!! Please inform me on the correct configuration to wirelessly connect my HR20 receiver to my wireless router. The receiver has RJ11/RJ45 (I forget which is which) connector not a USB connection. Does the connection on the receiver supply the 'antenna' with the voltage it needs to operate correctly? Thanks much!!

You can't connect an HR20 wirelessly, unless a dongle would work. The RJ45 connector is for a wired connection.

You will need the Ethernet adapters, that plug into an electrical outlet. Netgeat is a good unit to buy.

Powerline ethernet is very iffy.
Easiest way is to use a wireless game adapter...

Yes, people do, but in some installations they won't work at all, and in others their performance is very erratic. It often depends on which branch of the power system the two adapters are located. In my last house, they would not work at all.

Not anymore. They actually work very well, with the current generation of chip set, that is being used. Most times when you see problems with them, is in Mutil-Tennant dwellings. That being multiple units using them, since they are unable to run Ethernet, or MoCa.
