Connecting Genie Mini to internet

I am thinking about adding three new Genie Minis to my account. I have an HR54 she now. My question is this. How do I connect the minis to internet? Can I use Ethernet or is it wireless? I have Wi-Fi but one of the receivers is going in the basement and the Wi-Fi is spotty at best. My genie is hooked up to Ethernet so can I use that on the minis to download on demand?

the minis uses the genie for everything

if the genei has internet, the minis have it

minis download on demand to the genie and then stream it


its better to add hd dvrs or receivers

monthly cost is the same
