WVB and Genie Mini Wireless showing up on network?

Hi all,

Just had service installed yesterday. I have an HR44 and two C41s and the WVB. I'm curious as to why the C41s and the WVB show up on my LAN? They have DHCP addresses from my router and I can see them in my router's interface along with their MAC addresses. I thought that the WVB created its own network for wireless streaming to the C41s. Is this normal? I do have an ethernet cable plugged into the HR44 and I'm thinking that it somehow links the WVB and C41s to my network? Is this for On Demand or something?

Just looking for clarification as to whether this is normal

The wvb does create its own network for video signal it will also share the internet

Over that same network.

If you genie system was not internet connected you would

Not see them

But the genie is sharing your internet with the wireless minis through the wvb
