I have 1 coax outlet by my HR22-100 HD DVR and a router next to same DVR. since DVR is close enough to a router I dont need a wireless kit right??
When I search wired connection on DTV they want to do a pro install and charge me.
Thanks for all help-- Steve'o

1. Did the DECA you have come with the power adapter?
2. Do you have an 8 way SWM splitter.

The wired adapter is called a DECA BB adapter and Directv usually requires it be pro installed. The adapter is fed by a coax signal cable and powered by a AC power supply. At the router, a Ethernet jumper is used to connect the DECA-BB to the router. That connection provides a router connection to all of the HD receivers in a Whole Home system. Here are the parts you'd need.
1. A 2 way splitter to provide a coax signal source.
2. A DECA BB adapter.
3. A couple of coax jumpers.
Here are links to the needed items.

Thanks- the DECA in the link provided is the one I have, I have a splitter also, I have a couple 6 ft coax cable stored away I think. can you explain the connections i.e
coax to splitter, 1 coax to DECA other coax to DVR? 1 ethernet cable from DECA to DVR? 1 ethernet from router to DECA
I also see a white box directv put between the coax going into it and coax coming out of hite box to DVR that has to do with whole home service I think, do I just leave that there?
I forgot to mention this, I have my wireless connection kit wired via ethernet out of connection kit to my router since I was have wireless connection problems and it does work, DVR sees it as a wired connection with good speed
you think I will see download speed improve if I go DECA instead of wireless kit?
alot of questions.... thanks again DCD

You would remove the coax feeding the HR22. that coax will feed the "IN" on the splitter. then with two coax jumpers connect the DECA and the HR22. you will need an external power supply for the DECA

What would i use at the internet router end and at the end point to inject internet into the coax hub (20 connections) that terminates in my 14 car repair bays. this is to put local internet in each bay, that already has the coax cable going to the tv ? looking for a simple solution that will hold up to a non climate controlled environment... thank you

You would need to run Ethernet to each bay

I already have coax going to each bay and a TV - Can i run the internet over the TV coax without effecting the signal? DECA is so inexpensive and i would love to use the existing coax

Not with that many TVs. You would need to split the signal too much which will degrade your satellite signal. On top of this, DECA has a 16 node limit, meaning you can't have more than 16 DECA devices on the DECA network. You will need to run Ethernet
