If you mean WiFi to connect to a wireless internet router of your internet, then only 3 models have it built in: HR44, HR54, and the HS17. All other HDDVRs need the wireless cinema connection kit (CCK) accessory. If you have one of the 3 models built in, it provides the connection for all your boxes.
If you mean a wireless connection to connect Directv boxes without having to wire in every room, only the HS17 (Genie-2) has that built in to connect to Wireless Mini Genie Clients (model C41W). The original Genies (HR34, HR44, HR54) can use a wireless video bridge (WVB), which is wired in itself, to then connect to C41Ws wirelessly. This is a proprietary wireless network for Directv equipment only.
Directv can only connect to your Directv router, or certain Directv boxes, by wireless. No other non-Directv equipment is capable.
