internet from 7100 STB RJ45 jack?

Message 1 of 4

The 7100-P1/P2 STB has an RJ45 jack on the back.  Can I get internet from this port for u-tube / netflix viewing?  Or do I need to run a separate CAT5/6 cable from the router to the TV ?

Please use search, it is your friend.  This question has been asked about a million times.

 

The answer is NO - the jack on th rear is not active, and if it were to be it is meant as an input not an output (the STB has no DHCP capability).

If a forum member gives an answer you like, give them the Kudos they deserve. If a member gives you the answer to your question, mark the answer as Accepted Solution so others can see the solution to the problem.

Thanks for the info, but not for the attitude.  I DID use Search and it gave me zero hits.

I know some people that have relocated the router to the TV location. There are various options.
