We just moved into a brand new house, which has wired ethernet ports. Unfortunately, the one in the study is right where I want to put the couch, and the TV needs to go on the other side of the room. When the Uverse guy was here, I asked him about switching a receiver from wired to wireless in the future, and he said I could, but "You would have to figure out how to do it." Well, that's what I'm trying to do without calling the guy back out here or calling his cell phone. I moved the TV/receiver temporarily as close as I could to the RG setup, but it still won't work. Is there something I need to do to the router configuration in order to make this TV wireless? Thanks

Okay, thanks, I did try all that more than once, and I will try again, but I don't think it will work. The receiver was just installed a couple of months ago (January), so I don't think it's broken. At first it told me the client was unavailable, so I did a factory reset on the receiver, but then it finally just gave me the red X. Where I have it now there's only one interior wall blocking the RG. Also, when I access the router using 192.168.1.254, I can see the receiver as an inactive ethernet device.
