it depends on how you hook it up.

if you use a wirelles adapter that hooks up via USB or ethernet, i much prefer to use ethernet for ease of setup and reliability.

best to use ethernet from HR2x to wireless adapter.

make sure you have the same security settings/password on the wireless adapter that you have on the router. (i.e. WPA2 personal or whatever it is called... )

I'm hooked up through ethernet to a wireless adapter. Works fine, but soooo slow. Is everyone else's slow as well?

yes, DTV limits the b/w for each download. some HD movies take close to 24 hours, though i find that during the weekdays everything moves along much faster than trying to d/l one on weekends.

I'm hooked up the same way as you are and YES it's VERY slow that way.
I only have a 3 MG connection, I'm sure that doesn't help any either.

This is ONE reason I rarely ever use the On Demand stuff.
