Connect a Wired connection to the genie and then go to menu setting reset reciver - restart the receiver and it should see the lan connection on reboot.

The WVB gets the internet from the Genie and sets up a separate network to the C41 and doesn't use the router. I don't know if using the Ethernet port on the WVB will work but an Ethernet cable to the Genie will.

The Wireless Video Bridge has nothing to do with connecting your DIRECTV system to the internet, the Wireless Video Bridge SOLE purpose is to communicate with the C41W wireless client. Your HR44 si the one acting as the bridge for your internet connection. If you would like to be hardwired you would need to connect the ethernet cable to the HR44 and NOT the Wireless Video Bridge. Oner you connect an ethernet to the HR44 do a Red Button Reset and you should be good to go!

I know this is off topic but, is it possible to hook an internet ready blue ray player to the WVBR0-25 wireless video bridge, using an Ethernet cable. My blue ray player isn't wireless.

@Wingdwolf56, no, that won't work. The WVB creates a private WiFi network just for the wireless Mini Genie clients. Your BluRay player won't be able to access the internet that way.

The Wireless Video Bridge is only to connect the Genie to the Wireless Mini Genie Client. It does not connect to your modem/router at all. The additional connections in the WVB are not active at this time, just for possible future use.
The Genie HR44 (2nd gen) or HR54 (3rd gen) has the wireless connection kit built in to connect your system to the internet. You can choose to connect it wired instead, but the ethernet cable must be connected to the Genie as that is what is connecting to your internet.
