Receiver Dish

How do i connect my dish network Receiver to my router?

Ok. So i just got a netgear router and my receiver says i can have dish online. now i don't understand how to connect the receiver and the router. can somebody hep me please?

What kind of receiver do you have? Do you have high speed internet? DSL or Cable will work (and it does NOT have to be provided through dish network). You need to have an HD receiver (if you hit the menu button twice, or remove the smart card, the Model Number should be preceeded by the letters ViP. If they aren't, then your receiver isn't HD, and therefore unable to be connected via ethernet.)

If it DOES feature the letters ViP (or you know it to be an HD receiver), there should be an ethernet port on the back side of the box, you can plug a regular ethernet cable into that port, and then plug the other end into your router. If the router is in another part of the home, you'll either need to run the cable, OR purchase a device called a HomePlug adaptor from Dish Network. (you might be able to purchase it elsewhere, but i haven't heard of anything.)

If you do need to purchase an adaptor, ask the agent you're speaking to how to hook it up, there's a few nuances and quirks in how it has to be setup in order to work.

In my situation, my router is right next to my receiver, and I don't need one. (my internet is through verizon).
