    "we have a linksys, but the dvr will only work if it is wired into it... so it needs to be near it OR direct tv may have a wireless part they could add to the dvr so it is wireless."

    Thank you for the information. Much appreciated.

    I called Direct tv today and was told they do not sell or supply what I need. Was told to call them after I purchase what I need and they will send someone to connect it.

    Was told to connect ethernet cable to the ethernet port on DVR receiver and other end to a wireless router. I have a Westell 6100 modem, it is not wireless. Have to find out if a wireless router can work with my wired modem. I will buy a Linksys router as I was told they are very good.

    More info I "extracted" from him

    You need

    1) a wireless router w/ 4 ethernet ports on the back.
    2) the modem needs to be near the router
    3) the phone line is plugged into the modem then the cable that came with the router plugged into the internet port of the router and the other in the modem.
    4) the router and modem need to be near the DVR so you can plug the category 5 cable into the DVR and then the router.
    5) if the router is NOT near the DVR you need to call direct tv to see if they have a wireless adapter made for the DVR.

    Once all this is done they need to go to the network settings on the DVR....

    Thank you both for your help. I will get a router some time today and follow your directions. Will let you know if I was able to connect it right.

    Checked this just now and it looks like the weather in Aruba was beautiful today.
    The cam also picks up the morning zoom if you have friends staying at the Bucuti who are going to show up to wave at you.

    Life got even better today.

    Direct TV now offers the ability to view youtube videos on your TV (requires an internet connection).

    Now we can watch 5000+ aruba videos on demand on our TV

    PRICELESS
