I have the dishnetwork and a netgear wireless router. How do I connect another desktop computer to my wireless?

If your desktop isn't a wireless one, then you'll need what's called a wireless network adapter. It'll be easiest getting one that usb based because it'll pretty much work just like a flash drive. Windows will recognize the hardware and install the drivers for it. After that, you'll just have to select your wireless network name from the list of available networks, and enter your password. If you have a mac desktop, it should be wireless if it's a late model, if not, get an adapter specified for mac. Here is an example of what you need.

What is this Trendnet HPNA Coaxial Network Adapter used for?

It is a cable modem. It has two coax connections because one can go out to your TV or cable box. From what I read it also supports VoIP from the cable provider. You can look at the product page on Trendnet's website here:Mid-Band Coaxial Network Adapter

You can solve this by purchasing a higher end USB wireless adapter.It uses one of your USB ports. If you own a laptop you certainly will not have many USB ports available and most likely you will want to use all of them at some point. The USB dongle will need one as long as you use it.

Can I connect the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950Q to my dish network to watch on my laptop?

This isn't designed for satellite TV, it's for terrestrial and cable transmissions. What you need is either a WinTV Nova-S-USB adapter or better still a WinTV-NovaHD-S2 PCI card, which is what I use.

You can use your adapter at the same time as one of these, both WInTV7 and Windows Media Centre can handle it, plus they'll then allow you to record from one while watching the other. The PCI adapter is better because it supports the S2 satellite transmission standard and HD. These adapters output power for the LNB and can control the signal polarization automatically. They're also very easy to set up and use - just connect the wire from your dish to it and install the software. They also scan automatically for channels so you don't need to do it manually. I'm glad that you got your money back, you did have the wrong adapter. These work very well for me, I don't bother having a TV or video recorder, I just use my PC with one of these and another WinTV adapter for UK terrestrial freeview reception. If you wish you can also buy the WinTV CI adapter (common interface) which gives you a slot to put cards in for paid subscription channels.

The USB adapter does not support S2 transmissions or HD. This means that it'll have some channels missing from it's list. Unfortunately you won't be able to use the PCI card with a laptop. If you have a desktop machine that you can use then get the PCI card because it's picture quality is excellent, particularly in HD.

Can I attach any wireless adapter to the DISH ViP 722 or do I have to use Dish Network's Wireless Adapter?

Probably only their adapter. The reason is their device is not a "PC" and drivers are only written/compiled for the PC CPU/architecture, and source code closed or proprietary, for many retail adapters, and the chipset can change, in an adapter, with no external indication of that to prospective purchasers.

The Echostar OS developers would need source code or technical information to write drivers for their non-PC architecture. Many embedded device manufacturers are in that position, so only support the adapter they manufacture/sell, becasue they are in control of the chip in it.

That all said, any adapter which connects with Ethernet (commony called a bridge), will work, since the device (your DVR), just sees it as a live Ethernet connection.

How do I connect my dish network to wireless internet?

If you mean, how do you connect a DISH Network DBS satellite antenna to receive satellite Internet or Wi-Fi, you can’t.The satellite providing dishNET satellite Internet service may or may not be at the same orbit (Anik F2, Jupiter, and Spaceway are all at different equatorial longitudes), and you have to subscribe to that service to receive access codes.If you’d like to repurpose your DBS antenna as a parabolic Wi-Fi antenna, then you’d be losing your DISH TV service since the antenna would no longer be pointed at the sky. If that’s fine with you, you’d need an impedance converter for the F connector on the dish antenna’s cabling run to connect it to a router or USB adapter.If you can provide more details about your objective, I’d be happy to tell you how to do it.
