No, they do not. These have proven to be very unreliable for internet and DVR network, so they're no longer recommended.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I have never had any issue with mine but stopped using them for my DTV along time ago and only used them for internet to a bedroom. I now need to have internet in another room and was just wanted to buy one more adapter instead of having to get a whole new set up. Looks like I have no choice now.

Thanks

The newer technology Powerline Adapters are probably much better anyway.

Do you need this Internet connection to serve your Directv system?  If you have certain equipment there are better ways to get Internet on your Directv boxes.  If you'd like to tell us what you're trying to accomplish and a list of your equipment we may have some useful suggestions.
