Wireless receiver access point

We currently have 12 mb internet and u200 TV service.There is an INID on the outside of the house and an I38hg access point in the house. If I get a wireless receiver, do I need another access point or can the wireless receiver connect to the I38hg? My plan is to connect it via an ethernet cable but want to know how it connects wirelessly.

When that consideration went away, other considerations come into play. One is that the DVR is recording multiple streams - why add another to watch. Also, the DVR can accept four streams, but the last one must be SD/ So, if you are recording 3 HD the fourth watched on a DVR is SD. You may have 4 HD to the house & you can watch the fourth on another TV.


That may no longer be the case with most users.  I have had 4 recordable HD streams for about a year, I and I can record 3 HD channels and watch a 4th HD channel on the TV connected to the DVR.

I have the wireless receiver hard wired to the RG. I have several internet capable devices that don't have wireless capability near the receiver. Can I disconnect the receiver from the ethernet cable and connect the other devices to check for updates and reconnect the receiver without any trouble? I presume I should turn off the wireless receiver before I disconnect and reconnect it.

Yes, you could temporarily disconnect the TV receiver and connect other devices to get updates from the Internet.   When you re-connect the receiver and power it up, it should download the software and come right up in a few minutes.  If you don't power it down before disconnecting, it may attempt to connect up via the WAP.

Can I connect my RG to a netgear gs108 switch and then connect my wireless receiver and other internet devices to the switch without messing up the TV signal? I would only be using one device at a time (apple TV, Blu ray player, STB, etc).
