Hooking Up Your DirecTV to a Wireless Router

For some time now, cable companies have been offering a variety of on-demand programming. This has been a great boost to their sales, as customers enjoy the freedom only on-demand shows and movies can provide.

Through additional technology, DirecTV has found a way to follow suit. Only for High Definition customers, DirecTV has offered the capability of downloading and viewing on-demand content through a wireless router.

The benefit of this feature is that customers do not have to worry about programming a DVR for many of the shows and movies they want to watch. They can just connect through the wireless router and select the show they want from the menu.

In order to set it up, the DirecTV converter box needs to be off. Then, the Ethernet cable needs to be plugged into the back of it. The other end of the Ethernet cable goes into the back of the wireless router/adapter.

The wireless router needs to be plugged in and signal a positive connection. Now, turn on the DirecTV converter box. When a signal shows up on the TV screen, you will need to press the “Menu” button on your DirecTV remote.

Look for the option “Help and Settings.” Select that and then follow with “Setup” and then “Network.” From there, just sit back and let the DirecTV converter box do the rest of the work. Enjoy the freedom of on-demand viewing!
