The Netgear Universal Wi-Fi Internet adapter enables you to hook up your home theater equipment to your wireless Internet. DirecTV has features that allow you to share your DVR movies. Since the DirecTV receiver box only has a wired cable connection, you need a device such as the Netgear Universal Wi-Fi Internet adapter to connect through a wireless connection instead of running cables. The installation is straight forward and simple by design to make the process easy for you.
- Plug a Ethernet cable into the back of the DirecTV receiver box.
- Plug the other end of the cable into the Netgear Universal Wi-Fi Internet adapter.
- Plug the Netgear Universal Wi-Fi Internet adapter into a power outlet using the supplied wall power pack.
- Push the WPS button on the Netgear Universal Wi-Fi Adapter, then press the WPS button on your Netgear router to make the wireless connection.
