Yep the Dish receivers (ViP/H/J) only have driver support for the USB adapter model that Dish supplies (WNDA3100 v2, v1 won't even work.)

However any Ethernet-based wireless bridges should work.

Not to hijack anyone's thread but that is what I was trying to explain to my installer. He wanted to put a Joey in his attic but didn't want the cable everywhere and I said these guys do it on here wirelessly all the time, "go get yourself a game adaptor" then I had to spend another 20 mins explaining what a game adaptor was and how it functioned. Then he wanted to know if wireless really worked I'm like look here the people on here tote their joeys around their houses like ipads so if the people on here say it can be done it can so yes it works but you better have good wifi signal is what I've read. I swear people in this day and age don't research anything themselves.

It is not officially supported by Dish yet.. Yes it will work. But the installer is not supposed to hook it up that way..Yet..

Well in my case I had 2H/2J installed via coax then when I bought the third H I just swapped a J out for an H, did the appropriate rewiring at the dish/switches then just hooked the J I replaced up to the WiFi network. Of course, before they got Hopper bridging functioning correctly it meant that I had to have all H's hooked to Ethernet/WiFi but since Dish fixed the bridging I just have 1 H hooked to Ethernet and the rest get Internet through MoCA. Works great.

Unfortunately, Joey still needs coax for the initial software download upon activation. Tried doing it via wifi and hard ethernet and it was a no go.
